(Fan) F1 taunts A1, A1 spits on fan. How do you handle it?

Hmm... either:

  • nothing

  • toss both

  • I don't think you F-T A1, so use 2.3 and toss him.

    That's easy, throw both of them out.

    The fan goes because his actions are unacceptable in a HS environment. The NFHS has been stressing sporting behavior for the past couple of years and it is a POE this year. Taunting is not allowed. Do the right thing here and enforce it.

    The player gets a flagrant technical foul and is DQ'd.
    His actions certainly meet the definition:

    4-19-4 ... A flagrant foul may be a personal or technical foul of a violent or savage nature, or a technical noncontact foul which displays unacceptable conduct. It may or may not be intentional. If personal, it involves, but is not limited to violent contact such as: striking, kicking and kneeing. If technical, it involves dead-ball contact or noncontact at any time which is extreme or persistent, vulgar or abusive conduct. Fighting is a flagrant act.

    looks like it is time to get out the pen and paper, because somebody has to go!

    Question though - This just happened out of the Blue? no indication that this fan was a problem prior to this taking place?
    If there was it should have been addressed prior to this escalating to this point.
    The trouble with officials is they just don't care who wins.
