Back to the injury thing again. 10th boys last night, and V41 gets injured in the eye on a foul by H32. After I call the coach on the floor and he gets attended to by the trainer, V41 looks like he can continue. I inform the coach that if he wants his player to stay in the game, he will have to use a timeout.
He agrees to use the TO, and I inform the bench and all the players start heading to their benches.

After a couple seconds of yapping by the assistants, the head coach asks me if he can just sub for the player. I tell him, "sure, but you're still using the timeout."

He wanted to keep the TO, because his team was down and mounting a comeback.
Was I correct to not let him change his mind at that point?

Adam

Had you reported the TO to the table yet? If, so I would say he is stuck with the TO. If not, I would quickly have him get the sub to the table get the other team turned around with a quick explanation to the coach and get the FT's administered without delay. Just how I would most likely handle the situation.

  • Think long, think wrong.
  • He asked, and he received.
  • Life is a one-way zipper.

    You did well, Adam.

    • Injured player requires sub or TO to buy back in.
    • Coach informed of the option and chooses the TO.
    • TO granted by official.
    Sounds like only thing left to do is ask if he wants a Full or 30. Curious, lets say you grant the "take back" and go with the change to the sub option; are you prepared to WHACK the other coach when he begins his tirade?
