    Niang gets the most worthless fouls

    called against him all the time. how does this always happen? it is like every time he actually commits a foul he doesn't get called. then he just stands in the way of a shooter straight up and they jump into him and he gets a call against him.

    just like last season with the various "charging" calls he got called against him.

    i really don't know what my point is with this post but it seems he picks up at least 3 ticky tacky calls every game.

    anyone else notice this? or am i seeing things with tunnel vision?

    I agree. There are many times he stands straight up and they run into him and they get a foul call, and then there are times he hacks and gets away with clear, obvious fouls. Not sure why.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Yeah, on the late one, he basically stood there with arms straight up and the guy bounced off his chest. Not sure what else he could have done there except run to get out of the way.

    Re: Niang gets the most worthless fouls

    Hogue was the one who got the mystery calls last night. The double foul was crap, the one where he was called for a foul when Mika was draped over his back was crap, and the block/charge at the end of the game was crap.

    Georges does a good job getting in position and getting his hands straight up but he leans in with his body and draws contact with his chest. I think a lot are ticky-tack and should be no-calls, but that's why they get called. I noticed a lot of plays last night that when coming over to help on the drive he didn't foul but has a tendency to reach. He needs to stop doing that as well.

    This....99% of George's fouls are, in fact, fouls. He leans in big time with the body and nudges. He thinks the hands straight up will make it ok.

    What's he supposed to do though. If he doesn't brace for the contact and falls then he's going to get called every time too. It seems like there isn't a good situation for these. I would like to see these ones called on the floor because neither the offensive player or defensive player can really do anything and that seems to kind of neutralize the penalty some.

    A lot of fouls he gets called on I ask myself " what else was he supposed to do?"

    Ejim gets my vote for some of the dumbest fouls. Can't wait until he stops throwing his elbow or shoulder into everything. Easy charge call every time.

    Re: Niang gets the most worthless fouls

    I seriously thought he was called for about 7 fouls last night. In the second half he got whistled and i was like "crap that's 4 on him." Then the announcers (who were really bad) said that was his 2nd.

    Re: Niang gets the most worthless fouls

    Ejim's charges last night. The two he was called for were bad I thought. The defender flopped hard on both occasions and was still moving anyway. Then he bulls over a completely stationary guy later in the game, and no charge is called. Very inconsistent.

    The issue with that opinion is you could say that about every post player's defense, yet they get away with "it".

    IMO the refs are calling anticipation fouls. Georges might as well go after the block and get more physical like everyone else if the refs already have their mind made up.

    My theory has always been if you are going to foul then foul hard and don't let them make the basket.

    Agree on what you are saying, but it makes it easy for the ref to call when he sees that forearm extended.

    Re: Niang gets the most worthless fouls

    Niang is still young. While growing up he was probably the biggest and best player around. He learned he could get away with those things because of his size and dominance. Now that he's playing with better and bigger players (and better refs(!!1) those will get called. He'll learn and continue to get even better. Dude's a beast and I'm glad we got em!
