I’m dying to know where those coaches are and if he was one of them. Are you in this area or just know people around here?

I might have an idea of who you are after creeping all the Matts on Arbiter.

Or somebody like me would be a smart-ass and say something like "wasn't there a sportsmanship code read before the game?"

Funny, I probably would do the same thing.

I will say it this way, it does set a tone. It might not prevent anything, but it can set a tone that makes it clear that certain things are not to be tolerated or your expectations.

I agree, that's why I'm thankful we don't have a speech mandated to us (at least not yet...). I think that if you are required to give some broad spiel about sportsmanship that they hear every time, then the message you really want to get across can get drowned out.

I basically say, "Gentleman (or Ladies) it is about sportsmanship and if we are talking to you, you need to listen. But if you do not listen, then we are going to half to put air in the whistle and no one wants to see that. Put the ball in the basket and no will care what we are doing. Good luck."
