The official who told me this story was the one who made the wrong call. There was no misunderstanding or poor choice of words. He simply did not know then (he sure does now) that touching the line on a throw-in is not a violation. He saw the player step on the line, but not over the line. That is what he told the coach...and what he told his partner.
