Funny, I always thought it was the "head shake, bald bi-racial man doesn't know the rule" look.

The V coach was "assistant" during the JV game. The poor JV coach asked the table whether she had to sit; they didn't know, so they buzzed me over to deliver the bad news.

Just a compilation of goofy things I've had partners say during the captains' pregame. Some are otherwise very good officials who can't stop talking in pregame. I actually had one start to go into the correctable error rule with the coaches in pregame; unsolicited.

Officials whose captains meeting are wayyyyy too long with a lot of frivolous information. The players aren't listening, your partner(s) probably isn't listening...in fact the only one listening to all that is the person speaking themselves.

Yep, if you need a teleprompter, it's too long.

Yet, I bet they wouldn't have the same reaction had the ball gone OOB.
