    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: What's up with those Technicals? : They don't need to announce the rule change. Calling techs on a player is subjective, it's refs call. The 3pt line has to be moved physically, calling a tech on a player depends on the mood of the official.

    You're right Fierce. A change doesn't have to be announced. The refs would just have to ease up on the technicals.

    Besides, most of the players around the world will not have a problem with the NBA's new rule on techs. You will not find many players on the international scene that behaves as badly, on the court, as Sheed, Perk, and Kobe.

    Posted by P34[/QUOTE]Just for your edification Billy Hunter the President and lead council for the NBPA is already planning a law suit against the NBA for violating the CBA in direct connection of the implementation of this stupid rule. Also most players are very respectful of the worst referees in any sport,even though they haven't earned that respect. Just because a player doesn't like a call or demonstrates his displeasure by a gesture doesn't indicate a hatred for the referee but for the call he's making. It's too bad for the referees if one of their own (Tim Donaghy) outed them for being what they are,crooks who are in all likelyhood changing the outcomes of games to increase their personal wealth by way of the calling of fouls against the team they want to see lose or are told that the team who who gets the shaft is team X by the unscrupulous folks in Vegas.I'm a believer in what Tim Donaghy said regardless of how many phonies David Sterns brings in to swear his product is on the up and up. This rule will be abolished faster than a speeding bullet,it has no merit and it can only further distance the already strained relationship between the players Assc. and the league.

    Has there been problems with kids emulating the 'stars' performances in high school games? If there is a lack of respect for the officials at that level I can see why Stern may be doing this. If the stars set a good example then hopefully the kids will follow them.

    I thought KOME was one of the leaders in techs?  And thats without the throwing his fists at the refs. Of course the refs won't call that, they didn't before.
