Player attitude

My partner calls a foul on A1, A1 makes derogatory comment about the call while walking past me. Clearly loud enough for others to hear. I whistle a T.
During the same game A1 and B1 fight for a loose ball, it goes out of bounds and my partner give posession to A1. B1 expresses his disgust semi loudly and I again whistle a T. After those two incedents, the players all remained in control. Was I justified in the T's?




The greatest work you will ever do, will be within the walls of your own home.

I'll one up ya Man for all Seasons...

A player "expressing" himself does not have to be loud or semi loud, IMO...
all it has to be, in my books, is unsporting. Whack!

Based on this, I'd say they were justified. Nip it early and they learn to control themselves.

What Dude said....

If you can hear it and it's unsporting, just call it.

You were good to give the T's. Your partner would have done it himself it he'd had heard them I would assume.

Try not to think of a T as justifiable or not.

Just like any other violation follow the rules and call the penalty. It wasn't your doing!

Justified? By rule, yes. Got there attention, didn't it. After the second one, no problems. Good calls that maintained control of the game.

The important thing is that YOU THOUGHT THEY WERE JUSTIFIED AND NEEDED and you were obviously correct in your judgement. :-)
