Using derogatory language about an opponent's mother is apparently still fair game :D



According to the new rule, there are a plethora of derogatory remark subjects that will NOT result in a technical foul against a player; limited only by the student-athlete's imagination. Just a couple of possibilities - comments concerning the size of an opponents member or the opponents criminal past (e.g., for an opponent convicted of theft: "Way to rebound convict. You jumped so high I thought there was a stolen credit card taped to the backboard.)   

The new rule does not appear to cover coaches, managers, trainers, etc. so they may have to pick up some of the derogatory remark load.

I would like to think this will help our movement on offense with more spacing.
