In sports, an ejection (or dismissal or sending-off) is a disqualifying action assessed to a player or coach by a game official (such as a referee or umpire), usually for unsportsmanlike conduct. A referee is a person who has authority to make decisions about play in many Sports Officials in various sports are known by a variety of titles including referee A referee is a person who has authority to make decisions about play in many Sports Officials in various sports are known by a variety of titles including referee Unsportsmanlike conduct (or unsporting behaviour, or archaically ungentlemanly conduct) is a term used in many professional Sports to refer to a particular
Many ejections occur for such actions as fighting (or attempting to instigate a fight) and persistent arguing with a game official. Usually, a warning is given to the offender before he/she is actually ejected.
When the offender is ejected, he/she must leave the immediate playing area; in most cases, this means going to the locker room or other part of the venue out of sight of the playing area, or leaving the stadium grounds. If a player or coach refuses to cooperate, additional sanctions may be levied (such as forfeiting a contest or being suspended).
In NBA and most other basketball games, a player or coach is ejected from the game if he accumulates two technical fouls over the course of the game, except when the technical foul is not of an unsportsmanlike nature. Basketball is a team Sport in which two teams of five active players each try to score points against one another by propelling a ball through a 10 feet (3 m In Basketball, a technical foul (also known as a "T" or a "Tech" is any infraction of the rules penalized as a foul which does not involve physical contact Participants who commit fouls of violence are ejected summarily regardless of the number of technical fouls accumulated. Ejected players/coaches must leave the court area for the remainder of play, and must do so immediately, or else risk even heavier fines/suspensions. In the NBA, an ejection will result in, at minimum, a $1,000 fine. In domestic games, refusing to leave after being ejected can result in a player being put on report. If being put on report does not provide enough encouragement for a player to leave the court, the official may award the game to the opposing team, regardless of score.
A significant rule change was made in 1981 whereby the NBA eliminated the ejection of a coach for three technical fouls caused by an illegal defense. Year 1981 ( MCMLXXXI) was a Common year starting on Thursday (link displays the 1981 Also, in the NBA ejections are not permissible if a technical foul is caused by an excessive timeout, delay of game, or accidental departure from the coach's box.
Basketball also features disqualification, also known as fouling out. A player who commits a certain number of personal fouls in a game (5 or 6 in most leagues), is removed from the game and is said to have "fouled out". In Basketball, a personal foul is a breach of the rules that concerns illegal personal contact with an opponent Unlike ejection, fouling out is not considered a punitive action--it is considered a "normal" part of the game. Players who foul out of a game are permitted to remain on the bench with the team (instead of being sent to the locker room, as with an ejected player); and are not subject to any further penalties (such as fines or suspensions).

Strike Zone is a Star Trek The Next Generation novel by Peter David. Strike Zone is a Star Trek The Next Generation novel by Peter David. In Baseball, a Pitcher may commit a number of illegal motions or actions which constitute a balk. This is especially true for catchers who turn around and question the plate umpire regarding a ball/strike call. In some cases, an ejection is followed by a fine or a suspension if the player, or manager or coach, reacts in a very hostile manner towards the umpire. Managers have been known to engage in raving arguments with umpires to provoke an ejection, in hopes of inspiring a rally from their team, also known as "firing up the team". Baseball has a rich vocabulary for describing ejections: a player or coach may be ejected, run, thrown out, banned, given the ol' heave-ho, sent to the clubhouse, hit the showers, tossed, kicked out, or booted.
A player who makes intentional contact with an official (e. g. touching the official to get his attention) will be ejected, and along with the ejection of the offending player comes a 15 yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty against the offender's team.
Unnecessary roughness such as a very late hit may also result in an ejection, as will intentionally punching or kicking another player. Parts of this article need to be merged into American Football, and parts of that article need to be merged here

In some instances, a player or coach who is ejected must serve a suspension. Often, this is one game for the first offense, with harsher penalties depending on subsequent ejections and the severity of the offense, or when they purposefully attempt to hurt another player, a coach or a referee.
Sometimes in professional sports, a fine may be sanctioned against a player or coach.
