Normally I try to respect the guys in gray, its a hard job, and we all seem to expect that they won't ever make a mistake. But recently I have just been amazed at how poorly things have been done. I wont go into the whole debacle at Washington, its already been done. Anyone watching the Clippers game saw quite a few harsh touch fouls, it wasn't just one, but alot of them. JR got T-ed up to, we all know JR is a passionate guy but he rarely takes it to the refs. Then today in the Kings Nuggets games, which we all should care it about, the refs blew it again. AI was dribbling down the court, when he got a blatant shove in the back and went crashing to the floor. No whistle, so Iverson gets up and fouls Kevin Martin while trying to steal the ball back. He then simply looks at the ref, then turns around and runs to the bench because he has three fouls. He is then T-ed up by a different official for "disrespecting the game". In my opinion thats a load of BS. What happened to letting the players play the game?
Why are the refs going crazy?
