You may have been intentionally general, but you weren't clear about it.

If I was to suggest you Google "Wil Wheaton's Advice," that would have been more obvious than the "general" nature of your response.

This is most certainly true when:

- a NCAAM game where the resumption of play is POI (if you call the T while no team control, you've got to go the arrow).

By waiting a few extra seconds, it becomes a "cleaner"/easier penalty administration.
How the hell does blowing the whistle while the ball is in flight wipe out a scoring opportunity?

There's no reason to be a jerk. We're discussing the situation in the thread, not every possible play that could happen. And in this play, there's no reason not to assess the T when the shot is in the air.

Good grief...I honestly can not think of anyone else who is as consistently wrong on this forum as our buddy twocents.

Are you seriously saying that you are concerned about the scoring opportunity of the team whose Coach just told your partner or you that you suck? There is absolutely no reason to hold on calling a T when THAT team has the ball.

And then to compound the error, he throws a derogatory GV comment out...nice. Makes me miss Jurassic today.

I don't see a real issue with handling it either way.

Is it because he is really being a jerk or that there is some truth to those statements? Or is it because it offends some because they work girls basketball?

It seems like when anyone says anything about girls basketball they are being arrogant or a jerk when many expectations of girls basketball is very different than boys basketball.

Peace

True, but not in the case at hand.

You are probably correct, but it just seems like if anyone says anything about girls basketball we start making accusations. Of course the person in question often has a history of saying silly stuff, but I wonder if he said nothing about girl's basketball anyone would be calling him a jerk just for these comments?

Peace

No, I'd just be calling him stupid for saying that blowing your whistle for a T while a try is in flight will wipe out a scoring opportunity.

If this was a simple "bash girls basketball" comment, I would've ignored it. Even if I agree with those comments, I try not to make them too often myself.

Instead he made a comment which made no sense (calling a T with the ball in flight has no effect on the scoring opportunity since the play posted WAS a GV play under NFHS rules) and he took a chance, then, to make a gratuitous swipe at GV basketball which had no place in the thread.

And the expectations and the outcomes *are* far different. Nobody said otherwise.

Just asking. I just commented on a trend.

And I agree with BNR, that pretty much would have been my take.

Peace

Couple of problems here. He went off on another tangent about waiting and not stopping the scoring opportunity, if the T is on the defense. While this may be true in those other situations, not only is there no benefit to waiting here, as pointed out by Tony, the opposite may be the case. The offense may have a quick rebound and putback attempt, or there may be a foul by the defense on the rebound. That's the last thing you want here, is for the offending team to have any kind of chance for something positive.

The "d-bag factor" of his comment really doesn't have anything to do with Girls basketball. The fact is that twocents again posted incorrect information, and then when called on it, told a very accomplished official that that official wasn't good enough to do anything but GV ball. You could substitute rec league, Church league, Jr. high, or several other things for the GV part of twocents post, and it would still be a d-bag post.

From my personal experience, the official calling the T should also be the official to determine if the ball was released before/after T. The other official(s) are not expecting this and when you get the T sorted out and ask them 1 or 2 minutes later whether the ball was released before or after the whistle , good luck
