Conversation with a coach

I notice a player is wearing a bracelet during the game. That's against the rules, and she's required to leave the game.

ME: "Coach, I need a sub for number 11. She's got a bracelet on."

(#11 immediately takes it off.)

PLAYER: "It's off. I can stay."

ME: "Nope. I need a sub for you."

COACH: "It's not a bracelet. It's a hair scrunchy."

ME: "She was wearing it around her wrist. She can't wear a bracelet. She needs to go."

COACH: "The rule says she can't wear a bracelet. It doesn't say anything about hair scrunchies."

ME: "She's got to go, coach."

Never in a million years did I think that I'd get in an argument with a coach over what is and is not a bracelet.
