Can You Give Time-Outs to Coaches?

In which valuable lessons are passed on. During a basketball game in East Knoxville, the referee made a call that two coaches disagreed on. When one tried to exert his authority, the other responded by running up to him and pushing him. Coach 1 tried to maintain the collective dignity, saying he was going to leave the game if Coach 2 kept misbehaving. But Coach 2 wasn’t having it. He answered by grabbing Coach 1’s throat and then wrestling him to the ground, forcing some innocent bystanders to break up the fight, which is when the police came on the scene. Oh, yes, by the way, the two men are brothers. And they were coaches on the same team. And those teams were made up of 7- and 8-year-old kids.
