>A player control foul is what uninformed people call a charge. In reality, a charge is similar >to a blocking foul.

Actually, a player control foul is any foul that is committed by a player who is control of the ball.

This is in contrast to three other types of fouls:

A team control foul is a foul that is committed by a player whose team has the ball but who is not the team member in control of the ball.

A loose ball foul is committed when neither team is in control of the ball.

There is no term for the usual foul committed when the other team has control of the ball.

A charge is the "rulebook" term for a pushing foul. It can be committed as a player control foul, a team control foul, a loose ball foul, or a "defensive" foul.

The official should signal a player control foul (of any type, charging, tripping, or otherwise) with one hand behind the head and the other arm extended outward. A defensive charging foul is signaled by the official using a pushing motion.

The reason for the distinction between player control, team control, loose ball, and defensive fouls is that when a team is over the foul limit, free throws are awarded for some types of fouls but not others. (I believe you shoot for any foul except player control, but this may differ by organization - HS, NCAA, NBA, etc.)

A player-control foul is an offensive foul committed by the player in control of the ball. The most often seen PC foul is for what most people call a charge, even though this is not the technically correct term. This type of foul never results in free throws for the offended team, even if he offended team is in the "bonus" or "double bonus."
