De grens tussen aanvallende en verdedigende fouten is soms dun, maar zorgt vaak voor zenuwachtige reacties bij betrokken partijen (en daar bedoelen we ook het publiek mee).
Als je dus beter wilt worden is het slim om jezelf te trainen in het herkennen wat er gebeurt. “Aanvallend of verdedigend? Wat is je call?” verder lezen
Officiating is cool and as soon as you start recognizing situations and are able to make the right calls, to get plays right, it gets better and better. That’s why we often share nice eclips with interesting situations. As you all know: Everything can be prepared. It’s good to think things trough, if only on the beach with other officiating-junkies. We are happy to share the next clip. What would you do and why? “What would you do?” verder lezen
Sometimes you cannot avoid punishing players that are already out of the game. On this play, RED-7 commits an Unsportsmanlike Foul against WHITE-24. RED-7 commits his 5th personal foul. After this, during the Dead Ball, RED-7 kicks an advertising board. The Official calls a Technical Foul against the Team Red Coach, recorded as “B”, for the unsportsmanlike conduct by RED-7. “Technical foul for an excluded player” verder lezen
It happens to the best of us as is shown in the clip below: One ref calls a foul, the other a violation. It brings us to: Communication. How will the refereeteam handle the situation? In a future blogpost we will share our thoughts on fouls versus violations. But for now: What would YOU do being the trail in this clip? And what would you do being the center?? “Now what?” verder lezen
Seeing this picture immediately brought back memories of a game I did in 2003 or so together with my well respected collegue TR. It was a game at the highest regional level and in the stands we had our collegue RH as an observer. The game went pretty smooth and by halftime we both had a smile on our face. This was a good game and we were going to get a very good note on this one. “Don’t get mixed up in between!” verder lezen
One of the reasons I like basketball better than soccer is the rule that if a player fakes a foul in order to have the refs call a foul on his or her opponent it should be enough to warrant a technical foul. Players should win the game by basketball actions, and not by trying to get an unsportsmanlike advantage. “Flopping and its penalty” verder lezen
