prigs got his nose re-located yesterday with an elbow. but the only people in the arena to miss it - and the arena was full of 'foreigners' - were alltherefs. i'm not even saying theyre biased, just crap.

A lot of people seems to be flamming him (blaming) but shouldn't David Stern be on a hot seat? I know there's probably not enough proof to bring stern down but how did these died out without effecting the NBA in a bad way?

A player can get to the line 1000 times for all I care, if he blatant gets hit in the head and shoulder area without getting the calls...there's an issue. With Shaq and Dwight is sorta made sense because they were so physically dominant, but we saw Shaq get into altercations often in his youth and Dwight along with his coach at the time railed against the league for bias. With Melo who isn't a physically dominating force, it makes less sense that we see similar bias.

I wanna know what kind of game the refs had going in the first game of the playoffs last year against Miami. That was the worst officiated game I have ever witnessed as a fan.

And I don't trust NBA refs. Never have and never will.

They should replace them every damn year to get rid of the bums like Bavetta and Crawford. Very unlikely that would happen, but it should be done.

I just wish I had enough financial capital to research games/crews and bet on them so I could make some $ off this giant scam.

I mean, there are obvious ones, like always bet against the Spurs in a Joey Crawford game, cuz the team will likely be without Duncan.

But other times, it can be tricky. I would love to hire Donaghy as my financial planner.
There is no asterisk on ANY N.B.A. titles.

It's a rare day that I will complain about calls, mainly because I do not feel they influence a game to the point of wins and losses.

The refs are bad all over the place, that's an element every team faces.

here is the NBA admitting again the refs made a mistake.......

With one second remaining in the fourth quarter of the Chicago Bulls-Toronto Raptors game on January 16, officials called a foul on Chicago’s Joakim Noah as Toronto’s Amir Johnson gathered the ball while driving to the basket. The officials ruled the foul was on the floor but upon review at the league office, the video replay confirmed that the foul should have been called a shooting foul with Johnson receiving two free throws.

Poor Raptors, this is the second time this season.

see, when melo doesn't get any calls he becomes frustrated and he loses focus. same can be said for tyson chandler.

the ref's must love it when the knicks play physical games. when you get whacked so many times and no fouls are called, how much ---- are you gonna take?


edit:

melo should play safer, so he doesn't get hit as much.

Lebron gets away with a lot of non-calls though...

Yeah but so does Darrelle Revis against my Dolphins so unless you're a Giants' fan, we're even.

Yep, I'll never forget that Kings-Lakers series. Had none of this come out with Donaghy and you asked me what was the most absurdly officiated game Id ever seen it was game 6 of that series.

We always see questionable and even blatantly bad calls but that was the first time in my life watching sports that I actually thought something really shady was going on...it was too obvious..


IIRC, there was a play late in the game (after LA kept getting the benefit of whistle after whistle after freakin whistle) where Mike Bibby was either headbutted or hit pretty hard by an elbow or something and everyone was expecting a possible flagrant foul to be called, and they actually called the foul on BIBBY, with blood dripping down his damn face.

Absolutely criminal that game was..

I asked him about the game being fixed and how he runs his sports betting website based on his knoweldge of the game. I also spoke with a friend of mine who is a columnist for Slam Magizine about the game being fixed and his take on it. If anyone has interest I'll post the links below. Sorry for the whorish behavior but I felt like it actually fit the convo perfectly. Thanks to anyone who checks it out, hope it gives more insight to the deadspin article

I don't even think "the refs suck" is important when we're discussing Donaghy and the concept that the refs not only suck at their jobs but do trivial things like betting on who can go the longest without blowing their whistle or who can give out the quickest T...especially in our Technical littered year.
