After making substitutions, we accidentally had 6 players on the court (5th grade girls). I called a timeout when I saw it (after maybe 5 seconds elapsed), and was granted the timeout. The refs did not realize we had 6 players until after allowing me the timeout when somebody from the stands yelled out.
I was then given a technical and still charged me with the timeout. Should I still have been assessed the technical foul? Should I still have been charged the Timeout? While I acknowledge this was a fault on my part, it seems unfair that I got charged with both the technical and the timeout.
