Technical Foul, Continuous Complaining

This is an example of a Technical Foul for continuous complaining by a player. Players can react to calls with which they disagree, provided the reaction is not overly demonstrative, disrespectful, or prolonged. Following the initial complaint here, the player in the blue uniform continues to complain to the referee well after his immediate reaction, until a technical foul is called. This type of complainining, exceeds the “Respect for the Game” guidelines, and results in a technical foul being called.
