and not get penalized for it... Yet any mouthing off in basketball is a quick technical foul

The main reason may be the level of penalty and pace of game. Basketball is too fast paced, the refs dont have time to sit and discuss, where as football and even baseball coaches have time to talk to the officials. Also, in basketball you get 2 techincals before you are thrown out... so you can get one w/out really hurting yourself. Where as baseball you get ejected and are gone, without warning, per say. Football.. not sure I've ever seen a coach ejected.. or penalized for that matter... that is an interesting question though. I think if you watch though, basketball jaws just as much as baseball and football before getting penalized, but I don't know why football coaches get away with more.

I am a HS football referee. We don't even get verbally destroyed. Any smart ref knows coaches are full of crap. All coaches are.

I got blacklisted from one HS last week because I didn't call something they wanted.

When coaches "chew us out" and "verbally destroy us" it is because they are crying for a call, which we don't give if it isn't there.
