So is it up to the official as to whether a player is disqualified or is does any technical on a player automatically result in disqualification?
Most types of technical fouls do not require (or even allow) ejection for a first violation - but the second one is an automatic ejection. A few technicals do carry a penalty of automatic ejection but Colin wasn't even close to committing any of the required acts. The refs apparently decided that he was guilty of "flagrantly (severe or extreme) contacting an opponent while the ball is dead" - which does carry a penalty of ejection.
As I mentioned in my post from last night, the replay makes it very clear he did no such thing. Most of the time what he did would not even get him an ordinary technical foul - let alone one calling for ejection.
