    yeah, the fact that they actually reviewed it and still sustained the bs call is more stunning than the call itself.

    adelman said in the press conf. that the explanation he was given was ron hit pau in the head. my goodness...

    this should be downgraded to a regular personal. but knowing the league, they most likely will give him a flagrant 1.

    If they are going to treat him like this anyway when hes actually changed his act, he may aswell just go out and punch Kobe so he at least he gets ejected for something that is actually worthy of it.

    So.. if Ron gets a flagrant 2 foul in this game and he did get some ball contact.. Why hasn't Rondo received one flagrant foul through the entire play offs? You're telling me that because Rondo is smaller than Miller that justifies the contact that left Miller bleeding leads to nothing?


    Nba, where Conspiracy's happen.


    They really want it to be Lakers VS Cavs, I swear.

    If this gets cleared and Ron is not suspended for Game 4, will the NBA look at what's going on with the ref's poor calls during the playoffs?

    If the NBA lets this series continue to be called like this and we lose, I might seriously boycott the rest of the playoffs. My time is valuable and I won't let them disrespect me like this for entertainment.

    This is pretty important- two ejections = suspension for a game am i right? They better rescind it or at least not suspend Ron. Effing refs basing it on his past... :mad:

    Now that the Fakers has regained HCA, I don't think Ron would be suspended. But to play safe, they might suspend him to make sure Rox is down by 1-3. :mad:

    ref nazi's are out of control.......flagrant fouls are now judge on how hard a guy falls/lands rather than the actual foul, ron actually got a lot of ball, if gasol landed better, it would've been nothing

    freaking rondo basically slaps/scratches brad miller's face and it's a personal, then ron artest, it really wasnt even that hard a foul........gets flagrant 2.......gimme a break

    Yeah I started that thread over there.

    I'm sure emotions are high over on these forums but I want to say two things:

    1. That is such a B.S. flagrant 2.
    2. I hope Yao is healthy, I respect him absolutely not wanting to come out of the game - he is a classy, warrior.

    Night fellas, see you Sunday.

    How about Battier getting his head bloodied when Vucochick came down hard on him in game 1???

    i can gurantee they'll reduce the flagrant 2 foul and almost certain it'll just be a regular foul. I have to say though the officiating tonight was decent for the most part. We just lost the game. No ball movement, no making shots, and loads of turnovers killed us in the second half.

    I watched it about 20 times on the DVR. Ron got all ball then slipped off and hit Gasol's arm. Gasol hits himself in the head with his own arm after Ron hits the arm. Gasol tumbles to ground and make a pathetic face. After the game he keeps saying "He hit my head". lame

    With his 2 flagrant point from game 2, and if this holds up... He will be suspended on points, if not just this. Even if they drop it to flagrant 1 (which will still be bs in my opinion) he will have 3 points. You know that will effect his play, knowing that he has to worry about any little thing that if someone might flop they'll give him a flagrant 1 and suspend him. It's very disappointing. How can you screw that up even after seeing the video?

    Even the Laker fans are saying it's a bad call.

    No suspension.

    I'm actually a little worried about Shane getting suspended.

    He grabbed Gasol's ass on that play. :)
