Called my first T on a coach in a high school game this season tonight.

Game looked like a mis-match coming in, and it was 77-41.

First call of the game visitor's big girl, two forearms extended chuck on the cutter that knocked the cutter at least 3 feet.

I get it, report it and hear, " That's ticky-tac, this is basketball, you got to let them chuck the cutters." "No coach, they can't, and they WON'T."

I little later his player slowed down on a break and the defender got a piece of the shot, not even a hint of contact. He is up screaming for the foul.

The next trip down the floor my partner calls a travel, he's at the table jumping up and down, flapping his arms like a chicken, yapping about the call.

WHACK. I get him.

The 2nd quarter ends and he asked me to explain why he got the T without any warning. I about fell over, but I told him, "Coach you were on us from the first call, you were 10 feet out of the box, jumping up and down, yelling at my partner, coach that's automatic I have no choice on that one."

He still thought he should have gotten a warning and that I was too quick on the trigger and took him out of the game.

He coached his kids in the second half, without further problems, so the T made the game better, at least from the lack of yapping perspective.

Where in the Rules Book does it say to warn the coach? Is that in the chicken flapping section?
