(n.) variation of rebounding where, rather than wait for a relationship to end, the third party intercepts one of the involved individuals for the purposes of hooking up or starting a new relationship. Often leads to the end of the original relationship.

The act may be in violation of one or more of the man/woman codes, but has the capacity to result in the third party getting away with it, for his/her own benefit.

Trying to stop a couple from hooking up even though it's already obvious that this is an impossible task. In other words, an attempt at cock blocking long after it could ever succeed. Make sure you use the appropriate NBA referee gesture when calling it.
