It happens!
It does happen, but it shouldn't. So when it does, I stop it immediately. "Coach, we're not going to have you shouting at us today. There was no violation on that play, since there is no team control during a try."

That coach likely won't understand the last part, which is "rules knowledge intimidation." Anyway, if he doesn't get the point, you can always whack him the next trip down the court (wait till after the opponent scores though, so that the T gives them the ball back).

mbyron - agree.

This was many games ago when my game management skills were probably not as good as they should have been - or are now.

Has anyone ever been screamed at for calling a three-second violation? I have never gotten much lip over making the call, even when the player starts a try as the whistle is blown.

On the other hand, do you warn a coach before wacking for starting the loud "one-two-three" count? To me, it's in the same category as a loud f-bomb

Yes, I'll warn first. I guess my categories are different than yours. I categorize this as intimidation or trying to show me up. I categorize dropping the f-bomb as inexcusable unsporting conduct.

Screamed at? No. Questioned? Yes, when I called it during an interrupted dribble. A had driven to the lane and lost control of his dribble after he was in there for a couple seconds. During the scrum for the loose ball, I called 3 seconds. It was a rare situation for me in that I wouldn't normally call 3 seconds from T, but the drive had come from my area and I was on ball (high in the paint) in a 2 whisltle game.

I don't consider this the same as an F-bomb, however.
