exit out separate doors after you've showered and changed. Then not plan on working with him anytime too soon.

Do what the great leader/philosopher Marcus Aurelius would have done: Try to convince him of the error of his ways. If he won't listen, realize that you won't be able to change him. I would not report him. Partners don't do that. He will hang himself if he continues his foolish, immature ways.

Bull****! A partner that engages in such unprofessional conduct brings dishonor and disrepute on me as his partner and the official's association that assigned us. His actions may well get me scratched from that school. His actions may cause my association to lose that school. In short, he's willfully causing me problems and potentially costing me money. He's made life more difficult for the next set of officials. He's degraded my passionate avocation. He's adding to the problems that we as officials all face from coaches, players and fans. You can bet your a$$ that my assigner is going to hear about it from me FIRST. And if I didn't, my assigner is going to have my head for letting him get blindsided when the coach or AD calls, and they will. They'll probably send video too. That's gonna cost me credibility and probably games from that assigner.

I'm with BITS - the conduct described is immature and grossly unprofessional. There is simply no excuse for this type of behavior. If he can't keep his emotions under better control he has no business being an official. It just makes it that much tougher for the majority of us who try to bring a professional approach to officiating. I would call my assigner and tell him that I would prefer not to work with that individual again and why.

You are over-reacting. I was at the game. It was a question of Mechanics. The Ref was merely indicating that the Bonus was in effect to the crowd. I'm sure his using the wrong fingers was an innocent mistake.

Actually he was just letting them know they were #1 in his opinion.

I would refuse to work with him again. I don't ever say that about a partner but that crosses the line. Partners have you're back. I would not trust him to be there for me after a stunt like that.

Put an egg in your shoe and beat it.

It's amazing what comes into my head when when the meds wear off...

Oh, yea, the other thing that came into my head: report your partner, if there's some association or assignor involved. This may have been just an isolated incident, in which case you partner now knows it was unprofessional, and there's a real good chance he will never do it again. Or, maybe he's done it before, which this report adds another log to the fire, so to speak.

This should be the easiest call of the night. Report it, simple enough.

And don't work with the idiot again. If a school wants to know why, tell them. You're reputation can be linked with this clod.

Whoa, BACK OFF. You are coming on way too strong with me. UNDERSTAND? Like I said he will hang himself. That is ALL I said.

No, what you said was that "Partners don't do that." Maybe in your neck of the woods you and the rest of the good old boys adhere to some strict code of honor among thieves. But where I come from, officials are required to behave in a professional manner and that means policing ourselves. Saying that "Partners don't do that," is just a weak excuse for not taking care of business. UNDERSTAND?
