I hate attributing any referee failure to lack of courage from just a clip. And I always think it more useful to look at these as "how do I not end up there" than as "boy, he screwed up." But, boy, I'd love to know what they saw and what were thinking on that play to get anything other than a DQ. The only think I can think is that the R who made the call thought it was less forceful, and kept his eyes on the pusher rather than the push-ee. (Of course, at speed, it doesn't take much force on that push in the back to send someone flying.) But that should have been addressed in a conference of the officials.
I also can't tell his angle at the moment of contact. It's possible he didn't see the hands and just thought it was a body bump. Or, perhaps, as someone suggested earlier, he thought once he signaled intentional he couldn't upgrade it--we've all had brain farts that aren't lack of courage. But, wow, what a miss.

I even think it is acceptable to give the "you're out" signal when reporting the foul after you give the color and number of the player.

But in no way does the signal boxy you in. You do not even have to give the signal at all, but since intentional fouls have more penalities related, you can always upgrade. I would not downgrade if I gave that signal.

Peace
Thank you. That helps a lot.

I was talking to a new ref recently about how he didn't call an easy intentional foul in the game, I ended up calling it. No issue, the coach said it was the right call. I also did the same thing my first year. Sometimes things happen that are really unexpected and you just aren't mentally ready to make the right call. Now it is easier for me and just becomes sort of automatic. Not sure what happened here and if that is the case. Also, in this situation I would want the refs to gather and talk it over. For intentional fouls or ejection type calls I would have no issue with the other refs trying to get the call upgraded. Yeah, maybe he didn't think the push was too hard and the player's momentum carried him. But if there are three refs on the court and all clearly got a good look at a foul from behind then logically you think they would have ejected the player.

Good post. Unexpected things do happen occasionally, and maybe we're not mentally ready to properly rule on such plays. It's a lot easier for us to do our jobs when we have great partners.

As for this call...wow.
I do not feel rescinding is the same as downgrading.

Loved this line in the article: "John Blazek, who selects referees for the NCAA tournament, told the station that Rempe should have been ejected."

and this comment: "Mr. Blazek, who is in charge of assigning refs to the NCAA big dance, said the kid would have been tossed due to putting a player’s well being in jeopardy if it were a college game. Well then, Mr. Blazek, in 4 years why has the dirtiest player in the game (Grayson Allen) never been tossed? Please explain that one to us all."

Once done, I turn around and an adult attending to the player decides he's going to let everyone in the gym know that it's my fault the player got injured. T to the assistant coach. Except it turned out it wasn't an assistant coach. It was the player's father who had come down from the stands while I was reporting the common foul. I felt like poop. When the dust settled, I got both coaches together and told them I was rescinding the T and why. The offended coach wasn't happy but asked that the parent at least be asked to leave the gym for his outburst. I couldn't really object to that reasoning, so I had game management make him leave. I don't think the game manager was all that happy with how it played out. Not my best look ever, but I feel like we didn't make a crappy situation worse.
Team technical foul for the unsporting behavior of the team parent. The parent is also removed from the gym.

I will pass on the team technical but I do agree with having the parent escorted out of the gym....

Sadly, the reason that people continue to act in such a poor manner is that the consequences are not severe enough to deter it. I say penalize these fools to the maximum.

Assess technical fouls, eject these parents from gyms, charge them with trespassing for entering the court, ban them from attending future games, etc. It's time to crack down on this obnoxious behavior.

This must stop...

Definite flagrant foul. IMHO, an ejection was warranted.

Another follow-up story with a few more details. I actually like how this was handled.

It's great that this was ironed out between the principals, and I understand social media blow things up. But I'm afraid the takeaway from this the next time will be that it was an ugly, flagrant foul, and there was no ejection. So all someone will have to do is apologize and everything will be all right. We'll be seeing this again.

Yeah, great that the kid apologized and it was accepted but doesnt change the fact that he should have been disqualified from the game.

We know better than most how things look different from different angles but there is no angle where that is not a flagrant foul.

That is a reckless, dangerous, non-basketball play that should be ruled a flagrant foul 100 times out of 100.
