Not really sure what is nuanced about it at all, so please do explain. :?

As I said, two different games. In American Football if a player even touches an official he is ejected. In baseball its part of the theatre for coaches and players to get right in the umpire’s face shouting and arguing. Two different ends of the spectrum in terms of respect and behaviour, and neither is remotely relevant to rugby. Same as football.

Interesting deets Leb and good to expand the thread from rugby to football to other sports. Thanks. ;)

With Lockdown and no domestic rugby we have to expand our conversation or wither on the Lockdown/Stay At Home vine.

Go well GM!
Leb - never really understood why baseball managers go through those theatrics. Almost always ends in ejection. There are stats available for most ejections - think Bobby Cox (Braves) broke the 160 barrier, which is basically a season's worth of games. You'd have thought he might have learned at some point!

I think there are two reasons Tim. Firstly as you say they almost always end in ejection which I think is the idea. It’s a way to try and change the momentum in the game. Secondly, as I said, it’s all part of the theatre.
