Is there someone on this site like Bobref on the other site who answers questions for people that do not understand a call?
If not we should get one going. Not that I think I am as good as Bobref but between all the officials on this forum we should be able to answer a lot of questions.

All right! We can make this thread the official place to go when you have a question about a play or situation. Thanks stripes.

Not a ? about a call, but your opinion as refs will do. Has any move been made to take the timeouts out of the hands of the coaches and back on to the floor where they belong? Nothing more iritating than to see good defense negated by coaches instead of the kids on the floor.

Is your question whether only eligible players can make a time out call and not just coaches? The new rule book this year states
Rule 5 section 8
Time out Occurs and the clock, if running, shall be stopped when an official:
Art. 3... Grants a player's/head coach's oral or visual request for a time-out, such request being granted only when:
A. The ball is in control or at the disposal of a player of his/her team.
B. The ball is dead, unless replacement of a disqualified, or injured player(s), or a player directed to leave the game is pending, and a substitute(s) is available and required.

So if that was your question than the coach can still call a timeout. So as of right now if the coach of the team on offense wants to call a timeout than they do have that right. That being said it is not always easy for officials to hear it in intense game situations when the coach is on the other end of the court. Good officials know the situations to listen for such requests though.

Yes, and good coaches know that officials here them better when the coach isn't yelling all the time. Eventually they have to tune out some of the constant whining!

Have the rules changed this year regarding injured players? In the two games that I've been to this year, a girl has been injured resulting in a stoppage of play but, instead of being pulled from the contest, has stayed in the game. Is this a rule change?

The rule change for substitution due to injury is the time allowed to replace the player.
The new rule is you only have 20 seconds to replace the player once they are off the court so coaches do not use this as a time out.

The rule your question is:
Rule 3 Section 3 Article 5:
A player who has been injured to the extent that the coach or any other bench personnel is beckoned and/or comes onto the court shall be directed to leave the game, unless a time-out is requested by and granted to, his/her team and the situation can be corrected by the end of the time-out.

So in response to your question it just depends on the situation. Each case is different, was there a time-out, did the coach have to come onto the floor?
Hope this helps.
