...so I ran him...

really ugly 7th grade boys' game. lots and lots of fouls that we passed on because the clock was ticking on toward the next game. Both coaches complaining about the no-calls about equally. 3rd quarter, in front of V coach, who's ahead by about 12 or so, ball turns over and we're racing back the other way. I'm new trail, watching the press. As I run up the sideline right next to the coach, he jumps up and lands on one stomping foot and then the other, simultaneously throwing his hands straight up in the air, right in front of my face, and shouting (loud enough that my partner on the far endline heard him), "Wwwaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!!!!!!" See title. Sheez.

Flagrant. Making a travesty of the game. You got a problem with that?

Yup, I hope so, too. I also hope the dad who came up to me and told me that I "can't give a flagrant technical to a coach" learns his lesson when he calls my assignor and reports me, as he threatened/promised to do.

I do. How is a coach stomping and yelling making a travesty of the game?

Unsporting? Yeah. Ejection? Possibly. But I don't see how that makes a travesty of the game. Perhaps the travesty was ignoring "lots and lots of fouls......because the clock was ticking on toward the next game."

I have a problem with the blue part. I know when I played if officials weren't making foul calls I took that as license to be a hatchet man.

Call the fouls until all the players foul out if that's what you have to do.

I agree with this, but I wasn't on my turf, just helping out a friend, and I didn't realize the philosophy before I got into it. I know, I know, just call my game, but it didn't seem to me that I had the right to impose myself on a whole different situation than I'm used to. I adopted the "get in, get done, get out" thing, and just got out. And I won't be back anytime soon!

Yea, perhaps travesty isn't the best word. It was just so clearly not a basketball related action. It was a personal threat and it had nothing to do with what was happening in the game.

If it feels good, do it.

In your judgement, the call was appropriate for the situation. 'Nuff said. It's always a judgement call from the calling official right from the git-go anyway.
