In his memo, Adams specifically urged referees to enforce rules against taunting, profanity, and gestures like "waving off" an official after a call. He also reminded them that coaches should be immediately penalized if they leave the coach's box to complain about a call. "These types of actions call for technical fouls. Call them!" Adams wrote. "Your coordinators and commissioners will support you.

seems fine to me....I think there is a problem when some refs enforce it and some don't, as people push the boundaries with lenient refs and then are slapped with a T when they get a stricter one, so I think what they're going for here is consistency
