Did a JR high game today. Visitors dwoen by 3 ( Of course they mussed 7-10 shots in the paint in the last 2 minutes.)

Home team has ball. Visitor coach screaming foul em foul em foul em. Player goes after the dribbler and gives a push.

I call intentional, Coach tells me I need to learn the INTENT of the rules and that the player did not push the dribbler very hard at all...

I guess the best part of the game was we only shot 1+1 twice the whole game

Question

That's probably why he's coaching JUNIOR high!


BTW - did you stare at his pants and puke on his shoes?

Oh, my!

I expect that kind of thing U.P. here cuz it seems the Jr. High coaches, in fact mmany if not most sub-varsity coaches, do not have their own books. There may be only one book floatng around any given school.

If the schools cannot provide enough copies, I am sure that I would get my own.

Lah me, too.

Should we give a T to a coach for this kind of behavior? I don't think this is very sportsmanlike...

No Way! Don't T the coach for this.

Fouling is part of the game...that is why players get 5 fouls...now it is your job, as an official, to decide if they are intentional or not.

I wouldn't T the coahc for this, but what do you guys think about possibly T'ing the coach for telling us to "learn the intent of the rules"? Obviously I'd have to be there to hear his tone, but I would think about it.

Good call Kevin

Sounds like you made a good call Kevin.

I probably would T a coach depending on the type of behavior he or she has exhibited during the other parts of the game. But if that was the worst comment or the only comment like that all night I would vote for no T. But they would not have a very long leech after that.

I have noticed that Jr. coaches are really bad about the rules and it's sad. Here in IL, they don't have to attend a rules meeting. Now if 6th-8th grade is suppose to be about learning the game, how is this suppose to happen if the coaches aren't teaching them the correct rules, etc.? I had a 7/8th game tonight and it went pretty good. But of course these are the hardest games to call.
