Okay, I know that refs aren't supposed to be influenced by a home crowd. But the truth is that when there is contact (or even sometimes just the appearance of contact), the indignant roar of the home crowd increases the likelihood of the whistle being blown. I'm sure that Morey, Cuban, Hollinger, et al have some kind of secret stats to back this up, but I think we all know this to be true just from watching the games. With the foregoing in mind, when Yao and Przybilla begin wrestling for position on Friday night, I think everyone in the building should start yelling about it. This does not mean booing every time Przybilla touches the ball or when he just checks in. I'm talking about the crowd getting on him and getting on the refs every time he starts grabbing, hooking, and pushing Yao. Let the refs know that it's not legal and not fair. I'm sure that if everyone was on the same page it would end up in Yao getting a few more calls, and that by itself could be huge in a close game. Getting Przybilla in foul trouble, getting Yao free throw attempts, forcing Przybilla to give Yao a little more room - multiple benefits. We need to truly be the 6th man here.
