Team Bus Driver: "Its called reaching in, you should read up on it"

It's called fan ignorance. No need to read about it, you can see it live everywhere you go.

VI remark #474

Technical foul on B1.

Coach A sends in sub to shoot

V.I. yells loudly and shrilly, "You can't let a sub shoot the free throws, why don't you learn the rules?"

Coach B just as loudly "Hey Mayvis, it's legal, okay?" Note it was Coach B.

Not another word from V.I. for the rest of the game.

I almost thanked Coach B.

Which reminds me, this is the same coach:

Coach A asks for and is granted a TO.
Coach B says to me, "How long?"
I signal, but do not say, a 30.
He asks again, "How long?"
I signal again.
He asks AGAIN with some impatience in his voice, "What kind?"
I said, and signalled, "30 seconds, coach."

But he knew that subs for a T were legal. Hmmm.....

First, what is a V.I.?

Next, signals are OK but you should, IMHO, back it up with full or 30 seconds. This way there can be no mistaking it by either bench or table.

VI is in the title of this thread.

I hadn't even signalled the bench yet, and had every intention of signalling and saying, but it was noisy and my throat was scratchy and I was trying to save it. I was also shocked when he asked again, and I couldn't think straight.

I was watching the Duke game on ESPN classic yesterday night. The Lead blows a foul and signals a push. The commentators, "Over the back". This is why everyone says it, because the commentators say it. Someone should give these commentators a copy of the rule book, or teach them something about the definitions and terms of the sport.


On another note, last saturday i had a coach say the following.

"He's reaching over the back"

It was really hard to hold back my laughter in that situation, but i managed it.
