Thumbs down This isn't necessarily poor game management.

Is this why you officiate?

If a team delays coming out of a TO, the rule is that the ball is put on the floor. I don't have to do it often but I've never had to do this more than once. Does it make the game better? Yes, it does. Ignore these delays and teams will delay more and more.

As a matter of fact, coaches in my arera expect you to give them the ball or put it on the floor if they've followed the rules and their opponents haven't.

And why shouldn't they?

BTW, I didn't T a HS coach the entire year.
