    It doesn't help after the fact as much as you would think.  I bet 100% of the NBA players would try to flop at the end of a game to get a win.  If they succeed, the penalty is too late, the W is already in the standings.  There wasn't as much in the past (early 80's) because the ref's didn't put up with that crap.  It is on the refs.  It is their job to call it how they see it and if they can't see it, converse with the other refs to get the call right.  The key is to get the call right during the game, when it matters.

    Exactly - what do they care if they get the win?  30K is nothing to these guys, and they are just going to appeal them anyway.  The time to do something about them is DURING the games!!

    $30,000 is nothing for the top players but it is a big deal for most of the league.

    A $1m player will take home about $500k after federal, state and local taxes.

    They might be able to appeal but that will mean nothing.

    You are naive if you think this won't drastically reduce the amount of flopping that is in the league.

    Do you think Darko will murder anyone that dares to flop if he gets called for a charge?  Does that  thought frighten you?

    [/QUOTE]

    Darko won't get much playing time this season so the odds that he kills someone are not great. Plus, players will be watching their back when he is near them.

    No, it doesn't frighten me but I don't like gore movies so, I don't want to see any eyes gouged out or someone shanked in the eardrum or anything like that.

    [/QUOTE]

    You just said that Darko wouldn't have a knife or a gun, and now you say that you think Darko will stab people in the ear.

    I am really starting to think you actually might not be someone to take seriously, and that in fact you might be a very odd little creepy person.

    How will players watch their back when you feel that Darko will stab them in the ear?

    have you seen a doctor about these irrationial fears of Darko stabbing people in the ear?

    i think every penalty should be 5,000, and after 5 flops, you get a 1 game suspention

    I don't think you really GET that there will always be flopping.  There always has been, and there always will be. 

     

    It is not called properly, and that is the fault and job of the NBA official.  They need to set the tone at the beginning of the game, and the players will adapt.

     

    Tell me, when they see Joey Crawford is working their game, do they know what they can get away with and what they can't???

     

    It's the refs job.  Period!

    No scary was the look on Metta Wor.........  Oh what the hell, Ron Artest's face when he tried to stab Harding in the ear with his elbow!

    Re: New NBA Flopping Rules - Celtics Players

    The NBA on Friday, through its officiating website, offered a detailed definition of what would be ruled a flop:...

    "The main factor in determining whether a player committed a flop is whether his physical reaction to contact with another player is inconsistent with what would have been expected given the force or direction of the contact. For example, a player will be considered to have committed a “flop" if he falls to the floor following minimal contact or lunges in a direction different from the direction of the contact. 2 minutes ago

     

    Ah, same thing as it's always said - just call it right!!
