This is an example of a Technical Foul for an overt gesture that exceeds the “Respect for the Game” guidelines. Players can react to calls with which they disagree, provided the reaction is not overly demonstrative, disrespectful, or prolonged. On this play, the offending player ‘air punches’ away from the official. And although he does this away from the official, the act still violates the “Respect for the Game” guidelines, and will assessed a technical foul.
