Game 5 In Phoenix
By I''m OUT!
You can't tell me that the refs had nothing to do with this
game, or the series. They miss everything Amar'e had done but
when anyone retaliated only they were called for a T! Oh but
today since it was not him there was finally a double T, but
it's a little late. Today in game 5 it was the refs all the
way. Every touch foul was called on us, none on them. There
was absolutely no hesitation calling fouls on us, sometimes
it even seems liked they anticipated calling it, but when
they fouled us they stopped and thought about it first before blowing the whistle, "Gee I guess that
was a foul. I should call that one."
It all started when they
called Andre Miller for an illegal d when we were up like 12,
but he was STANDING RIGHT NEXT TO HIS MAN! He even pointed at
him and said "He's right here!!" It seems an awful lot of
calls blatantly were messed up in their favor. Actually, as
far back as I can remember this seems to be the case since
I've been watching the Blazers. I remember listening to a
caller on the radio get mad today that we weren't being more
physical and I thought, doesn't this guy know we'd get called
for everything? (Why do i fear the refs even before a game
has started by the way?) Well we weren't even "more" physical
today and yet we got called for everything! That 4th foul on
Camby was absolutely ridiculous. Not only is this the
Playoffs, but Grant Hill ran into him!!! Camby tried to slide
by and got called for the foul. Camby also hardly ever gets
in foul trouble. But of course in a pivotal game 5 he all of
a sudden gets 4 of the quickest fouls I've seen. Oh wait,
Brandon had the quickest. Or was it Juwan? Of course the Suns
have the League's best defense so they did not commit any
fouls on us when we were driving into the lane. Roy never got one call, Miller hardly got any. If either one were Durant you can be sure they would have gotten a bunch more.
And then there is David Stern, the head of the Gestapo trying
to keep everyone's mouth shut about how terrible his
officials are. I gotta say, the NBA has absolutely THEE worst
officials in all of pro sports! I want to know, why the hell
he makes it public who he is fining for speaking "bad" about
refs, but the refs don't get disciplined or reprimanded in
public? And I sure would like to know how in the hell Joey Crawford is even a ref after doing some of the most obvious worst and baffling calls ever?! Like the time he called two techs on Tim Duncan when he was just sitting on the bench and ejected him. Also it's not like it's malicious talk to disagree
with a ref, obviously they are not perfect. I think he is so
damn arrogant he thinks this is the way to win back people's
trust or people won't notice after what Donaghy admitted to
and claims others do. He is also extremely biased and has
admitted his dream finals would always be Lakers and Celtics.
I wish some real 3rd party would investigate this garbage. I can still remember 2 examples even from our last game
against the Thunder. Durant does the under and up the defenders arm move to draw a foul. Then 2 plays later Juwan
does the SAME EXACT THING and no call! Even the first play of the game Lamarcus was fouled, no call, very next play Durant misses, foul on Batum.
I watched game 4 of the Spurs and Mavs yesterday. Great game, close and the calls were fair. WHY CAN' WE GET THAT!!!!! I'm so pissed off and frustrated at the NBA!!!! Something must be done.
