    Can we get rid of the charge call?

    This is the worst call in basketball, at all levels. Totally swings the game by taking away an offensive bucket a lot of the time. It usually goes to the home team. And it encourages flopping & faking. This isn't Hollywood, it is sports. I hate flops.

    The worst part is that this year they added this zone where supposedly there is no charges to be called. Watch almost every charge and the dude's heels are always on the line but yet, surprising, charge call. Refs totally ignore the stripe on the court, it is pathetic.


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    Seems charge/block is a "missed" call just as often as it is called correctly. I don't agree with your logic, but I do agree with your idea.

    We probably still lose. Scotty kept dribbling into no-man's land, and turning it over.

    But I just really hate the charge call in general.

    While the charge call has F'd us over all year, no, it can't be taken away. It's a great play when called correctly. And we did have a few charges tonight but some of those shouldn't have been called.

    Will never happen...charges are when refs get to jizz themselves.

    What will you do when you see a Mizzou fan? I'll look for one that has small children and push them down and laugh at them!

    Re: Can we get rid of the charge call?

    I think it should only be called if the offensive player is out of control when a defender is actually trying to play defense. The sliding underneath a player going up for a shot in hopes of getting a charge call is ridiculously dumb.

    Hahaha.

    Amen, let's get rid of the charge call.

    And let's get rid of that pesky 3 point line! EMAW!

    And who the hell decided to take the bottom off those peach baskets?!?

    Here's a concept, why don't we teach some of our guys to stop their stupid out of control drives by taking a charge.
