Timeouts ...

Me too, at any break in the fourth period when I'm near the table.

I like to know when teams have one timeout left. It sets me up to be prepared to tell coaches if and when they have used their last timeout.

Keeping that in mind, I do not inform coaches that they have "one timeout left", not my job.

Also, once I have informed coaches that they have used their last timeout, I will not question them (or their players) if they request an excessive timeout, not my job.

But I will take a extra second to make sure that they aren't yelling out a play such as "Five Out", as well as being 100% sure who is requesting such.
