Lol and kinda embarrassing. To call so far out of one's primary. To be 100% wrong. To have a partner who is right there about to make the right call. Then to look goofy as all heck making said wrong call. If the actual call wasn't so bad and wrong this would have been funnier.

Nah, they just both sat on one side, even as the ball came up the floor and was swung to the far side, away from them. Never switched once in the 1.5 quarters I watched. Granted, it was a middle school game, but still...

Although all this brings back a fond memory of a "veteran" official and what he said to me once. I was probably about 3 years in and was working a JV game. Vet walks in and starts talking to my partner and I and says "I can tell you guys did not communicate before the game."

I said, "What makes you say that." I knew we emailed but didn't talk. He responds with, "I carry 2 color shoe laces so I always match my partner, and your shoe laces don't match."

I gave him, what I imagine to be, the stupidest look in my life. I stood up and walked out while he was mid-sentence of some other nonsense.

That was the moment I realized that I cannot take everything any official tells me seriously, and I need to weigh what, and whom, is mentoring/coaching me.

The little mentoring I ever did, I always prefaced it with, pick what you want from what I tell you, but don't pick everything. It worked, kinda, for me, and I guarantee it all won't work for you. If it does, you're in bigger trouble then getting mentoring from me.

Fisting ...

I've been fisting preliminary block signals my entire career. Hard to change. By the time I get to the reporting area I will often report with the correct hands on hips signal. At least I'm half right. Also half wrong.

Hands on hips is a terrible mechanic that should have been modified years ago.

Not even sure that's a block. Illegal hands or push.

Nah looks like a foul to me. Body bump affects dribbler SQBR. Prob not a foul in a higher level game with better players.

I agree this is often a foul since the dribbler was redirected as a result of the contact. However, it is one that some will pass on.

Block, push, doesn't really matter. It could be either. A lot of foul definitions overlap.

I wasn't saying it isn't a foul. Guess it sounds that way.

Doesn't even deserve a prelim. Whistle, turn and report.

Foul to me as well. But I would not have used that signal.

Peace
