    Re: We think we've got some bad calls

    It's not the worst call I've ever seen. Anybody remember the failmary from the packers Seahawks game with the replacement refs??? Who knew you only had to catch the guy who caught the ball.

    Think of the principle of verticality. If a shooter jumped straight up and down and a defender undercut him, its a foul on the defense. In this case, the defender did not jump towards the shooter, and the offensive player undercut the defender. It seems reasonable that the offensive player can get called for a foul for undercutting a defender if the defender can get fould for undercutting the shooter.
    Both his legs were pretty much together through almost the whole motion and the only reason they separated at the end was because the defender ran into them. And a big reason his legs were in front of his body is because he was falling away from the shot. If you think that's kicking the leg out then you have a pretty low threshold for what a kick means. Like the announcer said that was his normal shooting motion, and that should never be a foul even if they changed the rule.

    1) Who cares (unless youre a Raptors fan)
    2) Why doesn't anybody ever post a "Wow, that was a great call by the official" thread?

    Re: We think we've got some bad calls

    Kind of seems like Voldemort, er, Crawford, feels like the game should revolve around him.


    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.

    Re: We think we've got some bad calls

    Just did some reading on Joey Crawford.

    In 1998, Crawford was one of eight NBA referees charged with filing false income tax returns after an Internal Revenue Service investigation found that cash was being pocketed by referees when airline tickets provided by the league were downgraded. At the conclusion of a four year investigation, Crawford pleaded guilty on July 1, 1998[6] to falsely stating income of $82,500 from 1991 to 1993[7] and resigned from the NBA effective immediately. He was reinstated by NBA commissioner David Stern in 1999 and did not miss a game due to the players' lockout that started the 1998–99 NBA season.[8]
    And

    On April 15, 2007, Crawford ejected San Antonio Spurs superstar Tim Duncan for supposedly laughing at Crawford from his seat on the bench during a game against the Dallas Mavericks. Duncan also supposedly insulted Crawford with an expletive.[8] Duncan alleges that Crawford asked if he wanted to fight.[9] On April 17, Crawford was suspended for the remainder of the 2006-07 season and the 2007 Playoffs as a result of this altercation, ending his 21 consecutive Finals appearances. The league also fined Duncan $25,000 for verbal abuse of an official and warned that a repeat incident in the future would result in an ejection. Commissioner David Stern said Crawford's actions "failed to meet the standards of professionalism and game management we expect of NBA referees."[8] Crawford met with league officials on July 30 to discuss his future in the NBA but no resolution was reached.[10]
    On September 17, 2007, the NBA announced Crawford's reinstatement. Commissioner Stern met with Crawford and stated, "Based on my meeting with Joey Crawford, his commitment to an ongoing counseling program and a favorable professional evaluation that was performed at my direction, I am satisfied that Joey understands the standards of game management and professionalism the NBA expects from him and that he will be able to conduct himself in accordance with those standards."
    Sounds like its just a case of a former commissioner with a hard on for Harry Potter.

    Re: We think we've got some bad calls

    Pretty bad call. This is a great play to look at to compare the typical NBA foul shot when the shooter waits till the defender goes up in the air and then jumps into the defender and shoots the ball and 9/10 that call goes against the defender.
