I don't even know what your point is so I'm not sure how I proved anything. All I was trying to point out is that bitter fans blame officials all the time, whether it be fans of your particular team or those who opposed it. Whether there's any validity in the argument or not is personal opinion, one which I obviously do not share.
These guys have to make judgement calls in real time, and its not the easiest thing in the world to do. Go try officiating at some local rec league or AAU tourney or whoever will have you. People get hit under the basket all the time without it being called, players flop while not in the ref's line of site and he has to make a call, two players collide and again he has to make a call. I get the whole fan thing.....I've gotta put up with ******* parents all the time whose kids have never committed a foul in their lives. But so long as its a human making the call there are going to be mistakes that slow motion video capture will make sure to propagate.
Can't wait till the NFL season with replacement refs.......every fan is going to know their team could have won the game if it wasn't for that one pass interference or holding call that turned the whole game around.
the league, in mine and many others opinions seem to get worse by the year or they pick their spots to be horrible.i realize theres probably absolutely no reason to continue pointing this out,but it is upsetting sometimes when it appears they have an agenda.
as for the NFL we can only hope for the best.
to switch things up a bit,ive had a change of heart.i think the thunder are absolutely nasty,but i think ive gotten over lebrons "the decision",(didnt like the way he did it).
im going to root for the heat to win the title this year.please just do it.do it now.OKC will surely win some down the line,but let lebron get his first ring.
I just think its hilarious how you guys all think you're so unique in your little tirades against officials. Go to a sports bar with a bunch of expatriates during the euro games and you'll receive a nice little education in how everyone is out to screw them over and keep them from reaching the finals, which of course they'd win easily if they could just get there. The officials are all out to get them......and the different nationalities of the guys making the calls is what really makes it entertaining.
I just see you guys as all the same person.....whether its the goofball dad at his kid's sporting event or Berlusconi screaming from the poshest seats in the house. Everyone knows everything is rigged against them......unless they win of course. Then it was all fair play.
The NBA is doing quite well in recovering from its doldrums. They struggled to recover post Jordan, but that was more because the play sucked.....who really wanted to watch the Spurs play the Cavs or the Nets? I don't blame people for tuning out of those series. The Lakers/Celtics have been a hit though, and Miami/OKC would be highly entertaining and draw in the viewers. Not that it really matters. If you think the quality of officiating is that bad turn the tv off and go do something a little more productive with your life.
i definitely don't watch much tv...and def don't take the NBA that seriously,so its a push for me.definitely have more exciting things going on in my life besides the NBA and that includes the spurs.
