Principle of Verticality

Is this the must misunderstood rule in the book? It seems that all coach see is the contact...not who caused it...just the contact...not if the defender had LGP and good verticality...just the contact.

Oh, they understand it when they want to. Just call a foul on a vertical defender and watch his coach expose his knowledge.

Principle of Verticality

Goodwill...I totally agree with you! I have had many coaches say the same thing. I even had a player said it on Saturday. I told her don't go in there with the trees and expect me to have firewood for you after you get not down....she laughed!

Usually hear comments like:

"There was a lot of body on that play."

"Are you telling me there wasn't any contact down there on that shot?"

I understand the principle of verticality, but am having trouble with this sentence. Or is it just me?

Don't think that terminology is actually in the rulebook...

"Not" should be "knocked."

Coach: Why is that not a foul?
Me: Because this is not 6th grade girls basketball...

Me: It was, coach, but I didn't call it because I felt you haven't been paying attention to me lately.

"Of course there was, Coach. And your player caused it."

That is my actual response to that question.

I've used that.

I've also used "Yes, but defense had good position" and "Yes, but it didn't rise tothe level of a foul"

(And some combination of all of that)

I have to wonder if it's more like blatant ignorance, rather than misunderstanding. Otherwise, why would we get the "set" argument if they even know about verticality?
