View Full Version : Ref Joe Crawford.

11-27-2010, 04:03 PM
I think the NBA should consider retiring him because he's so ineffective. He's been making so many mistakes lately that I think it's not just a coincidence anymore and maybe his age has caught up to his vision.

Was just watching the Hawks/Knicks game, Josh Smith had a clear block, no contact whatsoever and Joe called a foul, even his co-refs appeared surprised. Then 2 possessions later a Hawks player blocked a Knicks player, again Joe called the ball out of bounds, possession for the Hawks. This are 2 easy calls he got wrong among many others.

he's the worst ref in the world no clue why they had him ref a game 7 other than to fit Stern's agenda

Thank you, finally someone who was paying attention to that game 7. The calls in that game in the 4th quarter were horrible.

Joe Crawford is Sterns evil monkey. Not only does this old ******* need to stop officiating, he should just jump off a cliff.

11-27-2010, 04:53 PM
Completely agree. Joey is a *****.

I think a majority of the refs in the league suck. Of course they're only human, but I mean come on; it gets to a certain point where it's like "what the **** were they watching?".

What pisses me off the most is when they get all into their calls. Ugh.

11-27-2010, 05:21 PM
Narcissist. And that's dangerous when you're a ref.

11-27-2010, 05:37 PM
I've been saying this forever.I'm so glad someone brought this up.i wish someone involved in the league would do something about him.hes easily the worst ref.

11-27-2010, 05:39 PM
He's been awful forever. I don't know how he's kept his job.

I remember when he ejected Tim Duncan for laughing back in 2007. The dude is pathetic.

11-27-2010, 05:54 PM
nothing angers me more often than Joe Crawford.

11-27-2010, 05:58 PM
Senile, bitter old man.

11-27-2010, 06:03 PM
He needs to be fired. He's the worst ref I've ever seen. Too bad he's in Stern's pocket.

i kindve like him :rolleyes:

Joe Crawford is the Commish ***** that is the reason he hasn't been fired. Why do you think he is always in the main event games during Playoffs and Championships. Don't be surprised if you see him in the Lakers versus Heats game. This guy and Stern are part of the reason I sometimes believe the NBA is fixed. Stern Knows he makes a lot of money off big game showdowns and upsets. That is why as much as I hate to say it it will be the Heat versus the Lakers in the Championship this year cause he knows he will make billions off of it.

Joey Crawford is the best ref in the NBA period.

11-27-2010, 08:47 PM
give him a break for this game. his entire family was playing today as in jamal and jordan. i cant find an excuse for his other games tho

11-27-2010, 08:57 PM
umm why would the nba get rid of there best official thats doing this job just the way stern wants him to.. fixin it. duh u guys r blind. nba is fixed..

11-27-2010, 09:06 PM
He is the black night that carries out sterns wishes.

In other sports, refs are held accountable at least somewhat for their mistakes. Whether it is through league apologies or holding meetings to go over mistakes or clarify rules.

In the nba, stern makes new tech rules to protect his agenda. I've never seen refs in the nba held accountable for any of their shortcommings.

I am by no means a conspiracy theorist or a bitter fan of a long term cave dweller, but at this point you have to prove to me the nba is not fixed.

11-27-2010, 09:09 PM
yea i dont see why people still argue that its not fixed, i think the only fan base that wont do it is boston and the lakers hahaha... even as a bulls fan i can tell u that the 90's were prolly fixed.. i was to young to realize it but the 2000's were so rigged :))
