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 gestures away from the official and he does so in an overt and demonstrative manner, which is in clear resentment to the foul call. And although he does this away from the official, the act still violates the “Respect for the Game” guidelines, and will be assessed a technical foul.
