“This is an example of a Technical Foul for an overt gesture that exceeds the ‘Respect for the Game’ guidelines. The defensive player, Cedi Osman, reacts to the foul call by ‘waving off’ the calling official. This type of overt ‘wave off’ will be met with a technical foul, as it exceeds the respect for the game guidelines, whether it’s directed towards an official or not. Players can react to calls with which they disagree, provided the reaction is not overly demonstrative, disrespectful, or prolonged.”
