In terms of parole what does a flop mean as far as time being served?

Flop: The time a parole board gives (after denying parole) before a prisoner will be eligible for another parole hearing. As in, "The parole board gave a 10 year flop."

according to the prisoners dictionary

These flops that the parole board gives, can also be rescended, meaning they can change their mind down the road and schedule another hearing to determine if the elgibility has changed for some reason.
