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.Shameful.
