What should be accepted and what not?

Bob Bhania and Dennis Rodman

We are not here to promote an array of technical fouls every game, but upon checking this video, I think we should look in the mirror and see for ourselves: What should be accepted and what should not?? Do you talk about situations like this in your pregame???  “What should be accepted and what not?” verder lezen

Teamwork!

In a crew of referees you are never alone. Make sure you are on the same page by creating a solid pregame talk. Make sure you know how to act in situations.

Would we have contacted our partner to upgrade the foul?   “Teamwork!” verder lezen

Charge/block will never stop being  a spectacular topic where players and refs will have different opinions. So make sure you know the rules!  “Charge block refresh” verder lezen
