Technical Foul, Repeated Gestures

This is an example of a Technical Foul for prolonged complaining by a player. Players can react to calls with which they disagree, provided the reaction is not overly demonstrative, disrespectful, or prolonged. On this play, the player in the black uniform will demonstrate repeatedly that he felt he had been pushed. While the single gesture is not considered overly demonstrative, the consecutive and continual gesturing is considered a prolonged complaint. Such a reaction must dissolve immediately. Repeating the act puts a player in jeopardy of receiving a technical foul, as seen on this play.
