Jackson also said as he reviews game footage in frame-by-frame replay he comes across countless occasions where referees miss calls right in the lane because of the strobe lights set up to aid photographers — temporarily blinding referees.

“They put their own referees in jeopardy,” Jackson said of NBA powers. He went on to say: “No one will admit it. How stupid are we?”

Never thought of that :shrug:

There are a million reasons why they miss calls, which is why I always try my hardest not to blame refs. We have the advantage of instant replay, slow mo, multople angles and multiple looks...they don't. They get one chance from one spot on the court with players flying at full speed.

But that definitely makes sense. You see lines of camera men lined up along the baselines...flashing pictures literally every time a play takes place. Makes sense :shrug:

Never thought about that.

Hmm, I dunno, could be a possibility.

Interesting point that nobody has mentioned before. I always thought the flashes were just from the camera men.

Only a coach with that many rings can come up with that conclusion. Awesome

Maybe wear tinted goggles but Stern would probably ban them.

Never really thought about that. Also whenever Phil Jackson has an opinion on something how come it is always a huge deal?

Maybe because he has more rings than fingers?
