Even I've never had to T up a Varsity coach, at least not yet, they usually keep their benches behaved, and themselves behaved because they have experience coaching and know that they're there to coach and not complain about me.

Although the other day, doing a freshman game, I had a coach who earned a T, first T all year I think, (It's been a slow year) every time I was down by his bench, I was getting, "they're travelling, every time up the court they're travelling...etc..." after about the third time of this, I waited for a dead ball, and went to chat with the coach, telling him that his behaviour was unsporting and that if he continued we would have no choice but to issue a technical. To which he replied, "If you'd just call the travelling we wouldn't be in this mess." (Loud enough for everyone to hear, I might add) So a no brainer, I whacked him.

He didn't say a word for the remainder of the game.

And as luck would have it, I was being evaluated that game. I got kudos from the evaluator on how I handled the situation.

The moral of the never hurts to take care of business.
Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups
