Something about this bothers me. I will accept a scorekeepers copying mistake to avoid the technical foul for "submitting", especially if the coach shows me a correct, complete, roster sheet that he submitted, or if the first book with both lineups has all the names, and one name was omitted when copied into the second book. In these cases we have written proof that it was an error by the scorekeeper, and that the coach did indeed "submit" his roster on time. I can't quite put my finger on it, but something about Back In The Saddle's post is whispering "technical foul" to me. It's just a whisper. I'm not sure where it's coming from, or if I should pay any attention to it.
