T or no?

Before the game during warm ups s visiting member jumps up and hangs on the rim. The uncommon part of this was the rim he was hanging on was a non retractable side goal that hangs about a foot over the floor.

Is this a T?

I ruled it is not a T bc he did not grasp one of the playing goals? I wouldn't T him for hanging on a pull up bar or the top of the doorway.

I did go tell him to don't do that again.

I might tell him to stop, I might let game management know.

Kudos to a guy that small or having the game to play at only 5 inches tall. ANd the guts to play without fear of being stepped on. If the only goal he can grab is 1 foot over the floor, I would let it slide too.

Why did they add this rule? Was it to intimate the other team and thats why its an unsportsmanlike? Is it cuz if the rim breaks there goes the game? I dont know..

Where is some old fart to help with these questions!

Pretty sure he meant out over the floor as in -------------> way not a foot in height.

I doubt it has anything to do with sportsmanship. It's for injuries and damage to the rim/backboard.

Most high schools don't have the ability to swap out a hoop and a backboard. Breaking one is a major headache. I always assumed that was part of the thinking along with player safety and perhaps not wanting dunking to be used to intimidate another team.

Another thing...a lot of those side boards in older gyms do not have movable rings.

Prohibiting hanging on the rim makes sense. Banning dunking in the warmup has always been perplexing. You can dunk without damaging the rim

But it opens up a loophole and makes the prohibition easier to enforce. And, there's no real reason to need to dunk during warmups.
