Don’t you just hate it if there’s so much going on that even with an IRS (or just Sam Subby’s amazing youtube channel) at your disposal it’s hard to figure out what to call?? This one is amazing. We’d love to hear your opinions! Lees “What will be your call?” verder
There’s another clip from Milan Matic we want to share with you. The question is quite simple: Personal or unsportsmanlike foul ? as stated in the title. We’d like to add another question. As you can see the coach of the team on offense is quite dramatic in expressing his opinion. What do you do about a coach (or a player, or a substitute) who is that explicit in asking for an unsportsmanlike foul? If anything 🙂 So I hope we will get lots of replies with 2 answers!

Lots of options in the following clip where it at first seems that big things are happening. It gives a nice indication of why it is important to not be too close to play (IOT), because you might get tricked into making the wrong call.
A few weeks ago we noticed that Individual officiating Techniques are not as widely known as we assumed. IOT is developed to help us as referees make better decisions on court, which will make our job even more fun to do! So let’s learn from the best! Mohammad Rahimy once again has Roberto Chiari , a two time olympic referee and very experienced referee instructor to share his knowledge about IOT. It’s very worth watching!! Why not start improving your knowledge before the next game you are going to do!
