Some supervisors will be very adamant about using it and others will suggest we just T them up.

Of course everyone gets treated different that's why I mentioned that coaches can read an official and know how far to push. Officials NOT addressing behavior the same (inconsistent) lead to coaches getting away with certain things on different nights. This is bad because players and fans are receiving mixed signals about sportsmanship.

Whether or not this was the ultimate point does not really matter. We got to this point for a reason and was not simply to give us another tool. Sportsmanship is an issue and I hope this will help clean it up is all that matters.

personally, i've never had a problem with conveying to the coach that their behavior or their benches' behavior is approaching a technical foul call. and anyone outside of the head coach, doesn't need to have any knowledge of that, so making it "official" does nothing for me.
Like you said, it may be helpful to a crew member who is not as comfortable. Not saying you do this, in fact I know I have and then had to change the behavior, too often we think of ourselves first and not the crew first. So while you may be comfortable dealing with a coach through communication, the warning, either issued by you or through your partner, can help the crew.

And the more they argue that point, the closer they may get to the locker room!

That is why pre-gaming where the lines are and what each member of the crew defines as egregious is even more critical. The crew also needs to understand that once a warning has been issued, there are no more warnings for that offense. In the case of the warning for being out of the box and saying/acting something in non-egregious sense, and having both warnings issued at the same time, no more warnings period from anyone on the crew.

Understood, but in my area, we convey that a coach (or player for that matter) has been warned, to the entire crew already...without this change. So for that reason, it seems unnecessary to me because I've basically already been doing it.

I do not think it is that deep. Mixed messages? I do not care what someone else allows or does not allow. We all have a different tolerance level right or wrong and this is not going to solve that issue if you feel it is really an issue. I do not honestly.

You roll that dice, you might just crap out.

Peace

Well that went sideways. I didn't mean for things to get all philosophical. To be blunt, I hope this new rule helps. Sheesh. I am going fishing now.

I havnt thought it through but my gut reaction is it helps coaches more than officials. For me and other old farts not much will change. When i give a stop sign everybody knows it...and if only the coach knows it...im ok with that.

I do feel coaches get away with things they shouldnt because officials dont want to "rock the boat" for one reason or another. There's no warning, there's no T. I guess my knee jerk thought is that some wont warn and T and now asking them to stop game and put it in book really isnt going to happen. Pushes them farther away from addressing bad actors. Again, i havnt thought about it deeply.

So warn or whack him if he acts the fool. What's so hard about that?

It's 14 less feet we have to police, which should be a positive for all of us.

May be good or bad.
I agree. My first thought when I heard about the change was, "great, now they're going to expect it every time." In reality, this gives us an officially prescribed tool. Many officials struggle with how to effectively issue those unwritten verbal warnings. By "effectively," I mean in a way that doesn't automatically escalate it to a T.

Very rarely do we need to call a T where we never had an opportunity to issue a warning. Add in the ability to stop play to issue an official warning, and that possibility almost goes away completely.

With this in place, the ones where we have to skip the warnings will call themselves.
