this is something that has made me laugh and :facepalm: for ages now. i frequently visit many game day threads from different teams forums on this site (my raptors forum included so im not picking on anyone in particular) .. and its getting really old how you can barely go 10 posts without someone claiming the refs are intentionally screwing them over. people stating the refs are fixing games because they dont get calls -.- .. its getting kind of annoying. no refs are fixing these games... no refs are out to just screw over your team and the NBA certainly doesnt have it out for your team.. this thread is kinda pointless and yes i see the irony in me complaining but its getting sad.. refs will blow calls. in fact they do it alot. but shut up they dont have a personal hate out on your team and they will make calls in your favor in other games. .. deal with it..

drink more koolaid man, you are the type of fan that allows them to get away with bad calls over and over again. You are the type of fan that believes the all-star players should get away with a different set of rules compared to other players on the floor.

You are wrong, and people are starting to not only take notice but also call the NBA out on it, so much so they created a website to try and show when they are right, when they are wrong and why....

People have to challenge the NBA because they won't allow the players, coaches or owners too or they take money away from them.

Its getting worse and worse, and to turn a blind eye too it makes no sense, unless you want to keep allowing the game to get less and less attractive and competitive.

lol okay explain this to me.. i have more than once watched a game lets say (total example) the bulls are playing the Pacers... i have been in the bulls forum after a blown call and they will say the refs out to get them and ****ing them over.. blown call the other way i will go to the pacers forum and see the exact same comment claiming the refs are screwing the pacers over.... explain how that works?

Agreed. The NBA doesn't have an agenda. The refs don't get every call right. The home crowd can clearly have an impact on some calls. Star players do get star treatment. But thats just the way the game is. It's been that way for a long time. There is no conspiracies. Anybody who thinks the refs are really out to get their team needs to get their head examined.

thank you.. yes i will 100% agree star players get treatment which makes sense its something you have to earn. besides that refs **** up... they just do . sometimes ya it will hurt your team but somewhere else in the season it will help your team. no agenda 100% agree

All star calls? Rose was the MVP and he still gets pushed from behind, hacked, etc going to the lane and only avgs 5 ft per game for his career.

In regards to the Donahue scandal - are you claiming he made it up? Pulled all of that out of his ***? It seems a little crazy that he could make that much stuff up.

I think if given the chance the NBA will definitely try to peddle it's best teams (I'm still not sure what to think about the Chris Paul dealings), but whether that extends to out and out cheating, I'm not sure.

Also, if you believe the conspiracy about MJ then you have to believe the NBA is capable of backdoor dealings.

For me it really would not surprise me if it was proven that the NBA was in fact cheating for its best teams, but I'm not necessarily convinced at this point in time that they are.

And he called out other refs too. Some weren't using it for monetary reasons but for their own enjoyment. Wallace couldn't even look at the red without getting a T. Than you have dwill, wade, lebron etc that get away with a lot of stuff when Wallace couldn't even stare at them. Or is that another isolated case?

So then my question is why did he implicate so many other Refs? Why did he tell very specific stories on when and how they rigged games? You'd figure a guy crying wolf would just be crying out how the league made him do it, not providing multiple examples across many years where the stats eerily back up his assertions.

I'm not saying I for sure believe him, I am saying it is enough proof to warrant a deeper investigation.

I don't complain about the refs. I don't think anything in life where there is big money or power involved can fully be trusted. There will always be people out for their own interests no matter what the segment of society - sports, science, religion, politics. Just as there are good people in this world you try to do things for the improvement of the world or something bigger than themselves.

Its sad that nba "fans" think this bias of the rules is ok. Looks like the nba corporation has got you. After all it is a business and making sure the fan favorites get different better treatment makes money...from fools that think its "part of the game" and ok.

We're human (refs included)

I find it hard to believe that anybody (refs included) can just contain the bias that lies in all of us

I am sure they used to root for certain teams when they were younger, heck some probably still do so it may make it a little easier to missing a traveling violation or a slap against the wrist, I don't say that they are "out to get my team" when it happens I usually say they're "cheating" but that's usually because it's been a bunch of bad calls or no calls and my team seemed to have been on the wrong side of all of those

However when the next game comes around, I don't even remember who the ref was or what the calls were

It doesn't have to be the refereeing populace as a whole it could be a select few of these refs. There will always be crooked people among society. However, if you feel better sleeping at night thinking there's no corruption in the nba or wherever else you desire then so be it.

giving star treatment....this imo means, not calling fouls on star, our baling them out when no foul is apparent.

Giving home team advantage...imo means, letting teams be over aggressive, our in some cases teams punished for being over aggressive.

These two above, are the main reason why people think the nba is fixed.it is apparent that their is star treatment...basically its cheating.of remember watching shaq a few times with 5 fouls commit an obvious foul as the refs swallowed the whistle.hell, the refs meet before the game to discuss eb and flow..basically how to control the tempo..but I could be wrong, but that guy donague or who ever, didn't help..and spoke on some peculiar games people openly had issues with and it want just home team fans, it was fans of different teams complainingabout those few set of games.

Another one I often see is when a star player clearly fouls but they charge it to their closest team mate instead.

02-08-2012, 03:14 AM
Yeah well the Warriors don't get star treatment or home court advantage ever. Ellis gets clobbered 30% of the time he goes to the rim, and they hardly ever call fouls. I mean, it's not fair. I'm not trying to sounds like a *****, but like Bob Fitzgerald said. The Thunder are good enough, there going to get calls on top of that. It really has been the difference in the Warriors season. If fair calls were made, the Warriors would be 12-11 right now, instead of 8-14.

I hate to disagree with a fellow raptors fan but I think you are completely wrong. I think the officiating is rigged. Yes they make calls but they favor superstar players heavily and as a raps fan you should see this night in and out with certain players but....

If you don't think the officiating is rigged how bout you ask my buddy...

Officiating is not rigged as much as Stern rejected the CP3 trade to the lakers because he thought it was a bad deal.

I disagree. I don't think it is "fixed" and I don't think they are "out to get my team" but I strongly believe that they'll do what they can to help certain teams. The money makers like LA, Boston, Miami, etc. The star treatment drives me nuts. I've seen Kobe in a refs face yelling, but other players give a ref a dirty look and they get t'd up. One statement that i hear from a local announcer all the time that drives me nuts, but almost proves my point is "your not going to GET that call as a rookie". I've heard it from national guys a few times too. If a rookie doesn't get a call, no one should and vice versa.

I hate to disagree with a fellow raptors fan but I think you are completely wrong. I think the officiating is rigged. Yes they make calls but they favor superstar players heavily and as a raps fan you should see this night in and out with certain players but....

If you don't think the officiating is rigged how bout you ask my buddy...

Officiating is not rigged as much as Stern rejected the CP3 trade to the lakers because he thought it was a bad deal.

lol i watch every game... i dont see anything close to drastic enough to suggest they refs are trying to make us lose.. i mean were losing because we suck lol

The refs are inconsistent with respecting a team on their home court, they are inconsistent with star calls, and they are inconsistent with make-up calls. I ****ing hate the NBA refs, but i will say they are better than college refs.

The superstar and earning a call stuff has got to go imo. A foul is either a foul, or it isn't.

Violet Palmer should be fired, she is not fit to be a NBA referee

she is only employed to keep the woman's rights groups off the nba. When they threatened the NBA with a law suit, her and Dee Kanter were brought in during the 1998 season if I remember right...with Kanter leaving to head the WNBA soon after.

This is a perfect example of how the NBA functions...

I agree. When your team is struggling it's easy to point at the refs. There are some bad calls no doubt, like the goaltending call in the Blazer/Thunde and game. Blazer fans are all upset and rightfully so, but maybe look at the teams late game execution and realize it should'nt have come to that.

I'm one to say that was a horrible call and get pissed, but I don't put the blame on refs. I go back to "oh that guy missed a layup", or "how did we give up those 2nd chance points". Even if the officiating is bad, teams can over come that by executing and hitting shots, and being aggressive, not throwing fits, getting T's. It makes it look worse to the fans too cause they start thinking "the game is fixed"
