It's amazing. You've been here about 5 minutes and you've already distinguished yourself has being totally clueless.

I recently heard "ThatOneRef" say something to the effect of "When dealing with coaches be R-E-S-P-E-C-T-F-U-L"

If coach were to hand you a rule book you would whack him.

I'm reporting the foul and getting back to where I need to be.

No reply.

If the coach doesn't know that rule it's pretty scary that he's coaching basketball at any level.

You gave one explanation. You don't need verb declensions to explain it further.

Thanks for the responses! One of my many weak areas is dealing with coaches. I avoid them for the most part and stay as far away from them as possible. When they do question a call, which is fine as long as its not disrespectful, I try to address the question professionally with rules jargon. Next time, I'll just say why I called it and that's it!!!

Do not avoid coaches. Our biggest obstacle is that coaches feel we are unapproachable. Answer their questions but let them know that you will not acknowledge their comments. Do so in a professional manner, even if you do no more than nod your head. All they want is to feel like you are listening to them.
