Strap, God wants you on the floor

There is a special one night showing of Hoosiers, arguably best basketball, heck, best sports movie ever made tonight at a historic Chicago theater followed by a discussion with Tribune film critic and Trib sports writer.

It's all I can do to leave my whistle at home.

I play, coach stays. He goes, I go.

If you enjoy Hoosiers as much as I do, and if you haven't, get a copy of the directors cut with the Deleted scenes. Good stuff!
You get to the scene where Buddy asks Norman Dale to come back on the team.

"You got pigeon sh*t in your eye?!" -- Coach Dale

Okay, let's say a coach asks you to kick him/her out of a game, like Dale did. (Noisy gym, no-one can hear the request.) The only option I know is the flagrant T. Give it right away, stand in stunned silence, or ask the coach to "earn it" (depending upon you relationship with said coach)?

" How many times are we gonna pass before we shoot?
Four.

How many?
Four!"

"I'm only gonna say this one time.

All of you have the weekend.

Think about whether or not you wanna be on this team or not...
under the following condition.

What I say when it comes to this basketball team is the law,
absolutely and without discussion."

And it can't happen under the rules, but I still get teary eyed when he says my team is on the floor.

Absolutely can happen under the rules.

I may have missed what the consensus was when we discussed this earlier ... refuses to play with 5

Of course, some would say that Norman Dale is a bad coach bad coach.

I suppose, if a coach comes up to me and requests to be kicked out of a game, who am I to argue with him?

I'd want my partner to hear the conversation though, so that I have backup when I have to fill out the incident report and make the phone call to my assigner.

Yes... but it's up to the coach (and not us) to determine whether a particular player is "available" or not. Rade Butcher was not available.

Incidentally, the "consensus", as you say, from the post you quoted was rather clear here. WE do not determine player availability. The coach does. That post doesn't prove your point... it actually disproves it.

MD, what I was trying to say was that I may have misunderstood what the consensus was when I initially read the post. Thanks for the clarification.

As was often said to me by my high school freshman coach, Mr. Ewchuck, along with, "Never dribble the basketball".

Haven't seen it in a while, but my favorite line was when the kid that's not supposed to shoot is making it rain, coach says "what's gotten into you?", "It's the Lord, I can feel his strength!" "Let's keep the strength in the dribble" Cracks me up everytime.
