A good case for a PP.

Would this be a good pre-Alert?

"We never play fast on defense or bid fast, usually waiting about four 
seconds for every call or defensive play."

No harm in violating that in the interest of speed when tempo could not 
possibly be a problem.

Eddie Kantar and Marshall Miles once experimented with a pre-Alert, "We 
hesitate randomly."

That didn[t last long, and it was not a good idea.
