That's like saying "If I toss a ball to you, but you don't see it and it hits you in the head, I didn't toss it to you." The suggestion was made, whether it was heard or not. Now, your take on that section is good and if I were the opponent I wouldn't charge the time out, but as the League Operator I would have to enforce the rule as written. I would also make myself aware of the background between the two teams, because there is often more to the story than what is told. Maybe one team or the other likes to "lean on" the rules to get whatever advantage they can, or maybe there is animosity between the teams or some players on the teams. A good League Operator knows his players and teams.
