    JOEY CRAWFORD will ref 1st Spurs game tonight since getting suspended

    http://espn.go.com/nba/playoffs/2013...urs-miami-heat

    This could be game thread but this is incredible and its a side story. cant believe that they would do this in the finals.

    Obvious distraction. Obvious slap in the face to Spurs. If it wasn't why would you let his first Spurs game be a finals game.

    Not saying the game is fixed or nothing, but there's an obvious conflict here if the guy has been suspended before for his officiating in a Spurs game and particularly handling Tim Duncan, allegedly challenging him to a fight.... This game could be officiated perfectly and this is still a bull **** side show.

    Lets combine the conspiracy theories. Popovich has cracked Tim Donaghy's da vinci code and knows what lineups to play vs certain refs. THIS is why he sent Duncan + Co. home and almost won back in Dec, Jan, as a nana boo boo to David Stern. This is Sterns answer, his number 1 goon , like one of the last bad guys Bruce Willis needs to fight before he gets to the russian terrorist in Die Hard 1.

    SO Who is getting tossed tonight?

    My money is on Duncan, obviously. I'll say Udonis Haslem because its his birthday. Probably one more guy gets into the mix. Norris Cole perhaps.

    All that aside, am I over reacting? I mean the guy was suspended for a considerable chunk of time and hasn't reffed a Spurs game since because of it. Why now, in the Finals?

    i don't see how any HEAt player could get upset with a spurs player to the point of getting tossed. The spurs are soo respectable and always say the right thing during interviews.

    Agreed. In a reverse way this probably benefits the Spurs. He's going to be extra careful not to slight them that hes probably going to favor them in the process.

    Yeah.

    Either way, if the Heat win I'm sure 50% of this site will just blame it on him.

    if it was officiated similarly to game 1, there should be no excuses

    or if it was officiated like the 3 series before that the heat played. there was a hairy game against the bulls, but besides that even the most "REFS ALWAYS HELP THE HEAT" people haven't been able to bring anything up.

    the refs have been solid these playoffs. i mean, bad calls here and there, and occasionally everywhere, but i don't think they've swayed anything really at all.

    hopefully all the talk and attention ends up just being pregame stuff.

    This shouldn't happen

    And if they lose, all the Heat fans will blame the refs. Its not a one way street here. You should probably get over it.

    For sure. I get PSD, bud. I understand how your ilk work.

    But the Heat haters outweigh the Heat lovers.

    Truth. But very few HEAT fans blame the refs for a loss. Just a few......they know who they are. I usually blame Bosh, Wade, LeBron(rarely), Spo, or Battier's stupid face.
