    For a split second I could've sworn the title of this thread was David Stern fapping.

    the fact they only fined Vogel $15k leads me to believe the league agrees with him to a certain extent...

    Stern needs to stop flapping his flopper "well I PERSONALLY addressed the issue with the competition committee" ppffftttttt. my ace

    I don't believe him at all. I think he'll pay lip-service to it, but he'll never do anything concrete to deter flopping.

    until the commissar and his minions stop catering to the divas, things will never change. It will only get worse. Initiate contact and fall down is already greater than the pick and roll.

    Hand out post-game techs upon review. Done.

    Stuff like Paul's tornado flop or the more common "Shotgun Blast Recoil" has to be dealt with.

    He already destroyed Kevin Martin's strength after making us keep him. Might as well get the rest of 'em.

    this is my beef. with what they did to martin, it is clear that they could get rid of all of it if the commissar really wanted to.
    but in reality when you take the fouls away from the invisible player that keeps fouling the divas..you take away 6-7 points away from the divas' point total averages. Wade averaging 17.9 isn't as sexy as wade averaging 23.

    F' the commissar.




    ^he mad. =)

    To each their own, but I try not to eye other people's flopping flap out of respect for their privacy.
