CUONZO'S COURTSIDE DEMEANOR


QUESTION: People around me at the men's games are quite unhappy with some (actually many) of the refs' calls. But they are equally unhappy with the fact that it looks like Martin never challenges them or shows much emotion. Do you think he should get more upset with the refs?

MATTER: Cuonzo explained last year that he doesn't rant and rave at officials — and I think it's one of the best qualities about him. But he constantly works the officials. All the time. If you sit close enough you'll hear him talk to them all the time between plays and during plays about calls they missed or things they need to watch. He just doesn't humiliate them for the cameras.

He explained his demeanor last year. Share this with the folks in your section: "I’m not a guy who’s going to swear, curse or cuss out an official. I’m not doing that to another man, because he’s a man first, and he’s doing a job. If I can’t talk to you the way I need to talk to you then we’ll live to fight another day. Because if you’re officiating the game the way you’re supposed to officiate then I shouldn’t have to say certain things for you to change what you’re doing, because that’s your job to do. And you’re hired by this league to do your job.

“I’m not going to demean another man just to get a call, because I am teaching young men what it looks like to be a man, how you act and how you’re perceived.”

“Now, is it tough? Yeah, it’s very tough. Imagine how tough it is to restrain sometimes. But I have to do that. It’s not an easy thing to do, and there’s a lot of prayer just to keep my focus and composure, especially when I feel like (the officials are) doing that to my guys. That’s painful for me. There’s not a lot I can do about it. You get a tech and then what? You change a call? Then you’re not doing a very good job in the beginning.”
