Doesn't mean the guy in the second row was enamored with your performance.

Go.

I wear a noose, but it's not a breakaway noose. If someone grabbed my whistle they would probably hurt/clothesline me. So I take it off, usually as the clock is expiring or on my way off the floor.

I suppose I could just tuck the whistle inside my shirt.

It's consistency. There are times that we need to get out quickly. If I do it *every game* there's no interpretation necessary. It's not like I sprint -- I jog at about the same pace I'd move as the trail bringing the ball up the court.

Me too, and I instinctively tuck the whistle.

I'm all for the tuck or removal, but running off the court??

And I've never given a damn about what a fan -errr- FANATIC thinks about my performance. Because quite frankly, what I do speaks so loud that I cannot hear what they say!

It's not words, it's about one of them losing his head and rushing the court quickly.

You might hear their fist crashing against your teeth.

It's not what they think, it's what they might do when given the chance. I'm not sprinting off, but I am jogging. I'm not waiting for a handshake line, I'm not grabbing the ball, and I'm not waiting for grandma to start asking questions.

Whether I feel proud of the game has nothing to do with what the fans think, or coaches.

I've had one game, that I thought was called well, where a fan/father attempted to find us afterwards. No idea what would have happened had we walked off slowly.

To each his or her own... running off looks cowardly to me.

Had a couple partners run off a while back & as the teams are shaking the WINNING teams coach says they would be alright if they ran that hard during the game as well.

Nobody said walk off slowly Snaqs. I'm moving with a purpose, just like during the game.

When the professor says stop running off the court, you stop running off the court.

are contradictory statements. You say you don't care what fans think, yet running would be construed as cowardly to fans.

Looks like if you have a "good game" you want to be seen. The only people I care about seeing me are partners, my supervisor, and my family when I get home. Just hustle/jog off the floor.

We work in different areas - some worse than others... but running off the court is NEVER bad advice. And running off every time is definitely better than picking and choosing when to run off (it's the inconsistency that will offend someone some day). He's not sprinting or advocating sprinting. But he's not walking either.

Ummm no, sorry, never said it looked cowardly to fans just said it looks cowardly. #getitright

Could care less about being seen, well, unless its a camp setting.

Let me see, who shall I listen to Mr. George Tolliver or berserkBBK??

We had some discussion about this sort of action in my area over the last couple of seasons. It is my opinion, that if the T will not be shot and will not change the outcome of the game, assessing it is meaningless. In the OP, I'd say either ignore the coach or eject him, in this case it sounds like the coach earned an ejection. Having a T in the book carries no penalty and will be a joke to the coach.

When I work in the NBA (with the amount of security they have), I'll walk proudly off the court. Until then, I'll jog off the court the same way, every time.
