• Players making aggressive gestures, such as air punches, anywhere on the court.
• Demonstrative disagreement, such as when a player incredulously raises his hands, or smacks his own arm to demonstrate how he was fouled.
• Running directly at an official to complain about a call.
• Excessive inquiries about a call, even in a civilized tone.
well sheed got out of the game just in time. its gonna be such shit the refs have more power to change a game. like air punches go both ways.. im really pissed i love basket ball but the david stern era is a crock of shit. my blazers will suffer from these new calls. and the rose garden will let them know. last year when dalles came in to town the calls were so blatant that the reffs had to be rushed away from an angry mob that was forming at the loading dock.
it seems that that now when you get fouled you must be calm and collected with a smile on your face and be happy when a bullshit foul is called on yourself you better be in good spirits about it.... it is taking away the emotion of the game.
this is what we can get ready to expect this season!
