On Friday nite, I had a coach going ballistic because the opposing team's players, situated behind the 3-point arc when his player was at the charity stripe, were squeaking their shoes on the ground during the FT attempt. I told the coach there was nothing wrong with that, as the gym was noisy already and the players were not in lane spaces attempting to disconcert the thrower. Was I right?

Wrong. A free throw is an unhindered attempt to score one point from the free throw line. If a player or players from Team B are sqeaking his or their shows whenever a player from Team A is shooting free throws, then the Team B players are guilty of disconcerting action. The location of the Team B players is not relevant with regard to the disconcerting action violation.

If you deemed them to be intentionally doing this then I would say you should have stopped them. It doesn’t matter if the fans are noisy or the players in the lane aren’t doing anything. It’d be no different if the players in the lane weren’t doing anything and an opposing player was right behind the 3-point arc and was screaming at the shooter. White talks to white, red talks to red (or whatever). Now for a coach to be going ballistic over something like this I would have told him to calm down.

It's a straight judgement call on your part. If you thought that the act was disconcerting to the FT shooter, then call it. If you judge that it's not disconcerting to the FT shooter, then ignore it. Or maybe warn, if you think that it's getting close. It's a "have to be there- make up your own mind" call.

Btw, it doesn't matter whether the disconcerting act came from someone on a lane space or not. It can come from an opponent anywhere- even from their bench.

Remember the days...

Remember way back when?...
when the cheerleaders, for your side, would do a cheer as you were getting ready to shoot a FT...
the cheer went something like...

"Do like the army does, shoot it, shoot it..
do like the navy does, sink it, sink it Danny sink it!"

Talk about disconcerting...sheesh, I didn't know if I should shoot before the cheer was done or what!

mmmmmm...those were the days.

Yeah - and when the other team was going to shoot a free throw, our cheerleaders (and students in the stands) would yell, "See that basket, see that ball. Come on stupid, hit the wall!"

Yeah...when I was 17, or even now days around family and affectionate friends.
Otherwise...just Dan.
(DanRef already had that name when I signed up)

Well.

My new FT routine:

bounce the ball to the shooter while annoncing the number of shots and yelling "Everybody SHUT UP!!! Do not move and there will be NO SNEAKER SQUEEKING!!!!!"
