    I too don't think that this was a flagrant. I believe the definition of a flagrant is that you aren't going for the ball. As much as I hate Anthony he had both arms in the air going for the block, he did bring them down into DWill but that makes it a foul not a flagrant.

    I don't know about you guys but I find AI to be the most difficult player to watch in this league. If anyone even looks in his direction the refs fall all over themselves trying to make the foul call. It should be embarrasing to the refs to watch the replays of some of the calls they make. You really get the feeling that they are getting more and more like the WWF refs, they don't serve any real purpose but to stand around and pretend like they're doing something.

    To Page: I respectfullly disagree with you. I don't think that Denver has more talent than Utah. They have two great players but the other 3 starters and the bench, Utah has them beat hands down.

    Dude, it was a bad call. I love the Jazz, but did you look at the replay... there was no ill intent involved. He went for the ball, and there was some contact, but it wasn't flagrant.

    anytime you beat the tuggets its a good win. They Denver have more talent than the Jazz no question about that, but its called a team for a reason. If the Tuggets played as a team they have enough talent to be at the top of the western conference not the bottom.Keep playing team basketball that is why the jazz are going to win the west. go jazz.

    "...it was a bad call."

    This from "blow-on-me-and-I-fall-over-AND-get-the-call" Iverson. He drove on Williams earlier in the game, Williams stepped out of the way, Iverson did his usually, flailing his arm around like he is having a fit, and they, of course, blew the whistle.

    It blows me away how one-sided the arguments are and how short their memories are. Accept the foul call and move on. The Jazz lost in Dallas because they were too concerned with complaining about a no-call on DWills 3, which you know for a fact the refs WILL NOT change, and so they did not get back on defense against Nowitski.

    We watch these "professionals" behave this way and we wonder why there is so much bad sportsmanship at lower levels. Look at what our kids (and some of their parents) have to pattern their games on.
