I did not miss the point, I acknowleged the point was a valid point and one well taken! Yes Im on the bench,as a trainer, but will defend the coach and his actions,as well as the bench for stkitts. Like I said to begin with,Im not blaming either team,It was both who were to blame. As long as a game such as this is goin to continue instead of being called off, we can control our players only so much without calling it off ourselves. The game is ultimately played on the floor, and the last I checked the refs are the ones in chrg. I really dont thk trying to get the refs to get a grip on the game is a waste of time, and again I will assume with you as well, you have been in this situation before. This wasnt a missed leadership opportunity, this was a game that seriously went for a crap! Like you said you were,nt there, which always makes it to tough to throw out the criticism you do. I truly think all efforts on both sides were to noavail, sometimes this #$#* happens. I still stand by my original point. The OLA makes the rules and the equip rules shld be easy to uphold,its not like trying to make a tough call in the heat of battle(buttend,icepick,etc),stuff that came later. This was easy,but was an indicator of wht was to come. Funny you guys are critiquing the point but cant wait to see if this happens in any of your minor games either early on or later when it counts. Maybe I shld of left out my opinion(lame) of the rule change,but if its there,then lets call it!
