Throw-in Spot

In our GV game last night, we had a held ball in the free throw semi-circle. The AP arrow was in favor of the defense so we were headed the other direction. One of the coaches called a timeout after the held ball. During the timeout, the C pointed to the baseline for the throw-in spot. The old lead/new trail pointed to the closest sideline. The C gave way and we inbounded the ball on the sideline. After the game, we discussed the play. The new trail told us he was taught and teaches new officials that when you are going long the ball goes OOB sideways and when you are staying the ball goes to the baseline. The FED mechanics manual makes no distinction. This is an interesting question. What has been taught to the rest of the officiating world?

there is a diagram in the book that tells where the throw in spot should be. It says nothing about going "long" or staying. I just follow the diagram.

The "new trail" has no basis for this that I am aware of. It is very clear, anything in the FT "circle" goes to the endline regardless of which direction you are going...unless you were doing the Lakers game last night?

The two foul-lane circles go to the endline; it's clear in the diagram. There is nothing else to know.
