This drives me nuts as well. I play with some pretty good players who travel and carry regularly and calling it seems to do no good. I think the problem is they aren't called as much in the NCAA now and definitely not in the NBA. Any time the ball comes to rest in a players hand it is a carry yet players pass the halfway point all the time. Any time you lift and plant your pivot foot it is a travel but most players now catch then set their feet which is a travel.
