Peace

That is what I would like to know. Even NBA players know not to be in the personal space of the officials. To me, this was something these players could have avoided.

I believe under the NBA rules umbrella, intentionally contacting an official is an automatic ejection.

The league didn't think so. Would like to hear the officials' perspective as I'd imagine it'd be different.

You invade an official's personal space, you run the risk of being penalized.

Nothing against you rocky but that is a bad video. Looks like it has been edited to make the situation look bad.

Here is a video that starts a second earlier, you can clearly see the official is walking past the player and she deliberately sticks her arm into his belly. She knew what she was doing.

The WNBA folks who made the final decision had access to the 'enhanced video' which is totally independent of that provided to TV broadcasters.

The HD videos from the new Monumental Sports and Entertainment complex are far more detailed than earlier generations of the 'eye in the sky' which are deployed in all pro basketball arenas.

Clearly they felt fully justified in their decision.

Sort of like a player running into a defender with his/her head turned. She was mostly just there and he more ran into her hand/arm than anything else. Sure, she could have moved it out of the way, but I don't think this was even T-worthy, much less ejection worthy.

I get the notion of players touching the officials is an automatic ejection, but I don't see this.

He's walking and talking with one player, the other player is addressing one of them (based on images I'm assuming official) he may hear her but is not paying attention to where she is relative to him. He walks through the arm she is trying to show one them. Suddenly turns and from his perspective she's walked up and put her arm on him. Glad the league rescinded it.

If that is ejection worthy than everytime an officials back pedals into a player, or gets bumped walking through crowd people are doing to need to be ejected.

The ejection cannot be rescinded, by rule. The player is excluded from participating in that game and from being present within sight and sound of the playing area. However, the suspension and fine can be rescinded.

"The ejection cannot be rescinded, by rule."

Tell that to the people who make the rules. According to the article, "The WNBA announced on Monday that the league rescinded the technical foul and ejection, stating it 'should not have been assessed.'"

While obviously they cannot go back in time and rescind the missed time. They can have the ejection wiped from the records. For historical purposes and more importantly for tracking of techs, ejections, etc tied to regulation and discipline the ejection has gotten rescinded as it was given in error and will be treated as if it didn't happen.

That does look "worse", but still not ejection-worthy, at least according to the league.
