Within the club of basket of Saint-Saens (Seine-Maritime)the 117 licensees “have, on the whole, been diligent in training and matches”, was able to note with enthusiasm the president, Joël Lefaux.

However, a subject came to tarnish the table of this season : the behavior of several coaches. And the president wanted to make a clarification on this subject.

Some coaches come to play district matches as if they were playing World Cup finals. They have no respect for the rules of the game and insult the referee to the point of being obliged to sanction them and report to the disciplinary committee. This shouldn’t happen. Players, like spectators, must accept refereeing decisions even if they disagree.
