Cool blood saturated uniform

A1 get a bloody nose during a game and play is stopped. the uniform jersey is saturated with blood. there are no spare jerseys. can the coach take a jersey off a bench player to put on A1? and what becomes of that player who gave up his jersey, is he still elligable to play? what happens at that point with the numbers in the book?

coach can do that -- poor jimmy on the bench cannot play and just change the numbers in the book -- poor jimmy he wasnt going to play anyway but at least he got to wear a jersey before -- I can only hope Jimmy tells Steve to wash the jersey before returning it to him.

If all of the team members have already participated, would it still be acceptable for one of them to relinquish his jersey to his teammate as a replacement for the bloody one?

And remember, new rule wording this year is any visible blood on uniform requires player to leave game - "saturated" is no longer part of the rule.

We've had this in each of my last 2 games. The second time it was in the last minute of a game and they were winning by enough that coach just pulled him out.

The first time it happened, coach sent the bloody shirt player and the last kid on the bench off to the locker room to change jerseys. When he came back into the game, the gym got quiet and the PA guy announced the number change. LOLOLOL the whole student section for the other team erupted for the kid. It was pretty funny as they were just being silly.

All coaches need to carry Tide sticks or Clorox sticks with them to games, because all another team has to do is scratch a scab and get it to bleed and rub it on the best players jersey and they have to go out, because of the new rule!

This happened in a game last week. I was there (not on the crew) worked in the concession stand and went out to watch the last few minutes of the game. Two of the top girls high school teams in the area (#1 vs #5 in the area).

1:19 left in the game. Team A (home team) has the ball with a 30-25 lead and they are passing to run out the clock. (It's been close the whole game, both teams playing good defense and running very patient offenses looking for good shots). Team B knocks the ball out of bounds. While lining up for the inbounds throw, the coach of B notices blood on the shirt of A1 and points it out to one of the officials.

The official walks up to A1 and tells her there's blood on her shirt that she'll have to get it taken care of. She IMMEDIATELY rips off her jersey and heads toward the bench where a sub, A6 takes off her jersey to give it to A1. I am stunned! I said to the guys I was standing with that that will be a technical foul and then a second for the bench player. They didn't know the rule and I explained it to them.

Out on the floor, the officials have yet to call anything (I think they were just as stunned as I was). A's coach calls time-out and the officials get together. After talking to both coaches, they inform the table that there are two technical fouls. Team A's coach is not happy, but you can see that he knows the rule and that there's nothing that can be done about it.

Team B makes all 4 free throws and on the ensuing possession, they are fouled and she hits both ends of the 1 & 1. Now the score is 31-30 in favor of B. A can't score in their last possession and they have to foul after B gets the ball back, again B makes both free throws and the win the game 33-30 by scoring 8 points in the last 1:19. The crowd boos the officials as they run off the floor (I'm thinking the crowd has no idea they did exactly the right thing).

I talked to one of the officials a couple days later and he said before they could say anything about not taking off the jersey on the floor, it was already off! They were as stunned as everyone else. After getting together and verifying that they had seen the bench player remove her jersey (thus, the second "T") they told the coaches what was going to happen. He said the coach of A was not happy, but he understood the rule was broken. This official (he's very good) also said that in the future, when a player has blood on the uniform, he will escort them to the bench and tell the coach what the options are (substitute a player or take a timeout) and remind the coach to tell the player to change the shirt in the locker room (or out in an empty hall out of the visual confines of the court). That's how I'm going to do this in the future.

What an odd way to lose a game!

Along the same line as the "blood" incident, this occurred in one of my games over the weekend:

Girls varsity game, getting ready to start the second half. My partner is at the division line, ready to bounce the ball to the player when the player notices that the official is bleeding! He somehow cut his finger (between leaving the dressing room and hitting the floor!) and was dripping blood on the court. Call in the trainer, clean the floor and send both teams back to their benches.

I wonder what we would have had to do if he had gotten blood on his shirt?

No technical fouls were issued!

Carry a spare shirt and go change as a courtesy to the participants in the game.

While there is currently no rule that REQUIRES the official to change, it is the right thing to do.

Hmm...what if you have one of those "partners from he!!"; couldn't you use that as a way to remove them from the game?
