call a deal
 v. phr.— «Tracon controllers say FAA investigators have been standing behind them as they guide planes and pull radar tapes if they think the three-mile separation standard was violated. “If we run them too tight, they’re calling deals on us right and left,” said one controller, using the colloquial term for an error charged against a controller.» —“An out of air control center?” by Sylvia Adcock Newsday (Long Island, N.Y.) Apr. 18, 2005.
