Just like Tom Hanks said, “There’s no crying in baseball.”
A fair catch is a feature in American football in which a player attempting to catch a ball kicked by the opposing team is entitled to catch the ball without interference from the kicking team. Hey, it’s football season, I’m a fan, and I love making sports analogies.

In business a fair catch cannot be called to eliminate any interference from creditors, investors, or anyone else while the business is developing. In addition, there are no time outs.
