During the HS Football game Juab@Manti, Sideline warnings are not ONLY given when an official makes physical contact with another person within the 2 yard buffer around the field. In fact, they are most often given for coaches coming out onto the field of play without a time out. Other reasons are; Team Personnel making unprofessional comments, continued complaining about a prior call, sidelines just getting out of control for that level of game.

@Kevin. That was a great game. Both teams figured each others weakness and capitalized. You're remarks are accurate. However, there were several calls that weren't justified or not called. On the same play the runner was clearly brought down by his face mask in full view of another official. He saw the flag thrown and assumed that would be it or something. It happens all the time, even if they're supposed to through the flag at what they see. Nothing was called. As the game went on that particular sideline judge started throwing flags at anything he could. He single handedly racked up close to 100 yards in penalties on the templars. It's one thing when a player loses his cool but entirely different when an official does. He obviously did!!

I guess at some level this all comes around. When Provo played Manti they had 120 yards of penalties in the first half alone, ended up with 185 penalty yards on the night. They had a punt return for a TD called back in the early stages of the game on a highly questionable call.

In their last game Provo had just three penalties for 25 yards. So I guess strange things are afoot whereever and whenever you play. :)
