    Can you throw it out at the beginning of the game, when they announce the refs for the game - and go to the pen for relief.

    Yayy more opportunities for media to say Rockets b**** too much. Is there a challenge flag to call out biased media narrative?

    I’m interested to know how many each coach can use during the game.

    Considering how absolutely **** the refs were last season more so than usual, I can see coaches having a very difficult time choosing when to use it as there will be more than enough opportunities.

    Can you challenge a play for non-called fouls? Like when Harden is fouled on a 3 point shot but it isn't called.

    One challenge is dumb as ****, should've been at least 3 per team.

    we wont use it... ya know how MDA hates to interfere with the flow of the game - even if we're in a downward spiral...

    Sorry, Mr. Harden. Goodbye, 3pt foul shot.

    let's use it on every game just to annoy those refs.

    only a couple years too late...

    also with the way refs perform in the playoffs, we're going to need at least 5 challenge flags.

    Doesn't all other sports have more than 1? Why only 1? That makes absolutely no sense.

    not sure if this helps us since most of our issues are with non calls not calls made incorrectly
