The Warrant of an Ejection

it ejection

 

Ejecting a player/coach from the game is no easy task.  Matter of fact, certain ejections bring confusion and chaos to the game when it isn’t warranted.  I stumbled across a discussion online about justifying an ejection in baseball.  (https://umpire-empire.com/topic/65264-what-warrants-an-ejection/)

Very similar with sportsmanship and respect for the game, they utilize the 3 P’s (Personal, Prolonged, and Profane) to constitute an ejection. I’d thought I’d share this with you.

Let’s take a look at this play that resulted in an ejection.

 

As Lou Williams began to react to the questionable call by the official, he prolonged his reaction.  As it prolonged, it became profane.  The technical was issued.  The second technical was automatic as it became personal.  The ejection was self-explainable.

Here’s another clip.  Players from opposite teams do play around with each other sometimes during dead ball.  During those times, it may look weird, but the intension may not be there.  There was no profane, no prolonged but a possible personal.  This ejection was almost confusing.

 A single technical foul can be warranted for an ejection.  You don't have to be a basketball professional to know what constitutes an ejection.  An ejection should be an action by a player or coach, that speaks for itself with no explanation.  Rethink your game if you find yourself explaining why that ejection was warranted.
