I can think of two:
1) In baseball a fielder may drop (or not attempt to catch) a deep foul ball that if caught would lead to a runner tagging up and scoring.
2) At the end of a basketball game players might not guard a shot worth one less than the different in the score (if guarding could result in a foul and a possible tie of the game).
