    Well, I don't know enough basketball to actually know even what would need to change, but someone has to do something to make it less like a hockey game. I honestly don't know all the things you'd need to change but my god if you're ever at a game it is so much more apparent than on TV, it is nuts in the lane, guy just hammer each other.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Technically...the flop could is considered to be technical foul worthy as the very nature of it is unsporting conduct...good luck calling the T though and getting coaches, players, fans to understand.

Refs shouldn't bail out teams and call thoughtless fouls when the call would never be a foul if it happened in the first 30 seconds of the game.
    As others have said, two hands on a guy is technically a foul...but beyond that, if you dont call that and the guy actually has to "foul" that leads to a whole mess of problems for rising tempers to coaches and fans screaming INTENTIONAL!!!!

    I dont think people really grasp how coaches, players and fans conduct in the game and outside the game impact officiating...case in point: foul count. A game could be going on and one team could be racking up fouls the other not so much. No one outside of the officials and the coach/players/fans on the lower end of the count can possibly conceive that the other team is in fact fouling more, thus the 8 to 2 foul count is perceived as unfair or "the fix is in", so officials are advised to keep the count in mind because, to simply put it, people are morons when it comes to their team and fair. Coaches and the bunch get angry, you have to start T'ing people up, maybe eject coach/player/fan for ridiculous behavior and the next day it's an article about how poor the officiating was...no mention that the other team was fouling more

    Good Referring has a saying. Call the obvious. Stay away from the 50-50 calls and NEVER guess

    If we could get stripes to live by those guidelines college basketball would be enhanced imo

    Go!! Zags!!!

    I used to talk regularly at my gym with a guy named Ron Goodman, who was a running back on Notre Dame's natl champ fb team in 1973, but I think bb was his first love. He played rec ball w/ ex-Sonics and the like into his 40's, coached in the youth program at Mercer Island, and reffed hs ball for a long time.


    In his words, football used to be a contact sport, and now it's a collision sport. Basketball used to be a non contact sport, and now it's a contact sport.


    As to the TT game, I agree it was nonstop mugging.
