both hands

Originally posted by mikeref
When reporting fouls to the table, i agree there should be no hand flipping. Number, closed fist then the next number. I also agree the the number 42 should be reported verbally as 42, not 4...2. As far as pointing to the team bench before reporting the foul, i say a big NO!!! That is not part of the mechanics of foul reporting! As far as visualing giving the number, i always try to signal outside the plain of my body. I am right handed, so when i report my right arm is bent at the elbow in a 90 degree angle. The people at the table have a much easier time seeing this signal as opposed to my hand in front of my torso. The black and white stripes sometimes make it difficult to see my hand signal.
Any thoughts on this????
May everyone have a joyous and meaningful holiday!!
If you can, try to use both hands the way you described.
One for the bench on the right, which is what you are doing, and one for the bench on the left, with your left hand.
By the way. I agree with your hand placement to the side, what I should have said instead of "near front of body", was outside the shoulder and slightly forward of the torso and then followed it with everything you said except the part about being one-handed.
