I had a Boys JV (10th grade) coach last night tell me I didn't know what I was talking about when I explained that his team still had team control, and therefore, by touching the ball last before it went into the back court, caused a backcourt violation. Apparently the need for rules knowledge is optional at that school.

When he then started on me about a non-call and I gave him an explanation he didn't like, I got another heated, "You don't know what your talking about". It was a bit of a hair trigger, but I wacked him. Kind of nipped it in the bud so to speak. At least he sat down and coached his players instead of the officials. Don't question my ability when you've already proven that YOU don't know what you are talking about. It was a tough night. My partner had never done anything other than CYO and wreck ball, so I had to spend time getting him into the right space on the floor and coach him during every timeout.
