It's more likely that that official will "have time" to check the clock..
I was taught a long time ago, if you can watch the clock, watch the clock regardless of where you are. Of course this is hard if the clock is not in clear view. But it is not uncommon in many gyms to clocks on both ends of the court and if that is the case you can put the clock in your peripheral vision and see the clock. It is not full proof, but that is what I try to do and it usually works. But I will say most of the time I catch the clock not starting properly I am not the official "on ball."

Peace

Initial responsibilities?

Gets down to 7:51 and says "stop,thats fine" and walks away.

Test---What did CoachP do?
a) Whip out the rule book and show R1 he needed definite knowledge.
b) Sit there and say nothing

Halftime- we are up 41 - 6 and R2 calls a foul on A1 her 3rd. R2 says to me next trip down, "We are calling it much tighter on you this half. Final 57-22
The first thing that gets overlooked is possession arrow & make sure the clock has started.

I was thinking the same thing. As the U on a two person crew, I've got a lot of things I'm responsible for, and a lot of things to worry about that might happen at the moment the clock should start. Better, IMO, for the R to quickly check the arrow and clock at his first opportunity.

I think we obsess over the arrow too much right after the jump ball. If they do not change it, we have time on the first dead ball to correct it. The clock in my opinion is much more of a problem. We can remember which way we are going, but the time being corrected is harder to get right if we miss the clock starting properly.

Peace
