I think it is a good idea in principle-that is, it is directed at cleaning up the level of sportsmanship. However, I feel like some others in that I am uncertain about what standards the officials will use in deciding whether or not a technical is merited. However, you kinda have to look at like a situation that might arise in a high school game. The league has already issued a warning and made it clear what is not acceptable. If they choose to violate it, they have pretty much thrown themselves out of the game.

One other point-do you think this is going to create some unspoken tension between the officials and all other parties involved (players, coaches, parents, etc.)? It might start out being similar to your overall feeling about police personnel right after you have just recieved a speeding ticket...They might feel like you all are now out to get them...What do you think?
