    Barnes was trying to set a screen to get Klay free and it was illegal so deserved a call.


    Flopping to exaggerate a call has been around for years and I don't have a huge problem with it. Hell...

    Do people realise this guy is actual an Australian? By playing in Canada for his last year of high school he can bypass college and do something similar to what Exum did, except Exum played in...

    Umm what? They weren't trying to 'punk' the US players. Simply doing a traditional war time cry of the Maori people. I don't see why people are making such a big fuss out of this? New Zealand respect...

    Money is another thing for these guys. I know one of the referees who did the Gold medal game during the London Olympics. He was giving a talk to a bunch of referees and said that he enquired about...

    I can guarantee that all 3 refs were NOT looking at the ballhandler, at most 2 were. If all 3 refs were watching the ballhandler, who watches the off ball contact?

    And you needed super slow mo to be able to see it.... And that is why it was not called a foul. How the hell could a referee see it if you needed super slow mo?

    So you expect the officials to get every call correct? How many of these did you need to watch the replay for to find? I'm going to say 99% of them! Remember the official has less than a second to...

    Players are fined for behavioural issues not errors. If a referee has behavioural issues on or off the court then I am all for fines/suspensions but as players aren't fined for missing shots or...

    Whether the referee is right or wrong does NOT give a player the right to argue a call in any situation! Remember these guys are humans and mistakes can and are made. From the games I watch, the vast...

    Ok from reading this not many people have any idea whatsoever it is like to be a referee or that evaluations are actually done on games and that performances do go into future appointments. So a...

    Dante Exum Interview

    Here is an interview Dante Exum did on TV in Australia recently. Just shows how down to earth this kid is and once the scouts get a better look at him I reckon he could go top 3 easily! The interview...

    Ok so the way it works in FIBA is the player who 'flopped' will get a warning from the officials on the first instance. Same as happens with all techs that aren't just plain obvious. On the next...

    I'm not trying to excuse him for a crap call, just trying to explain why it occurred. I would be willing to bet my house on the fact he had a new hole ripped into him during the postgame
