The issue is that we have more cameras and higher quality cameras and lower quality officiating so it looks like it's worse. I have no issue with the refs handing out techs if they are disrespected, but there is no way they are not going to get yelled at, in part because the arenas are loud and if you want to be heard sometimes you have to yell.
    I think somrthing needs to be done to remove the whining and the flopping all-together. Give em a T for blatant flopping and whinning, I'm cool with it.

I also like the way college handles the bonus- a little one and one makes the game more interesting
    No reason the main ref crew need be involved at all in the 3s. It can be adjusted on the sideline automatically.

    Calling the rules as they are written on carries, traveling, double dribbles, and all that means they need that 4th ref added.

    The screen rules, the block/charge rules, and the traveling rules need to be re-written.

    I think they should also have part of there pay be based on correct calls vs incorrect calls. Would be tough as if there is no call who gets the negative but something in that line.... maybe as a crew... not sure but If there was a way to "add" pay for better job I would guess they would do a better job....
    all that means is 4 crooks on the floor instead of 3...do we really need that??

    It can't be in-game. They put the flopping rules in years ago and I said at the time it would have no effect and it didn't. They need to have flops be reviewed after the game and I agree with you a flop should be a technical foul assessed after the game. If players kept doing it they'd eventually get suspended for games. I think it would be an interesting opportunity for the NBA to get fans more involved and have flops be voted on by fans.

    The complaining about missed calls or the "and-1" calls one every shot ... I think the officials can be empowered to stop that stuff without a rule change. That said some of that stuff can get out of hand on the official's side where players start getting techs for calmly saying "Ball don't lie".

    That's not going to happen. The defenses evolved and the rules committee realized that fans were not liking the way the game was played with the hand checking. Thank Pat Riley.

    Why not in-game? Curry is complaining and gets 2 T's in a game and gets tossed in the 1st quarter? Play the gane the right way. Complaining about every call isn't playing the right way. Where I grew up, it's called "being a puussy".

    The logical way to clean up the complaining and abuse of refs is to not allow players to complain to refs. Players may only ask for clarification on a call, arguing with a referee results in an automatic tech. The head coach may still argue calls.

    This cuts down on the constant bickering that slows dead balls, sets clear guidelines for what players may and may not do, reduces the amount of nagging refs have to listen to allowing them to concentrate on their jobs, prevents confrontations that could get players ejected, and eliminates any suggestion that star players influence the refs.

    Yes, 33% more chance one is honest.

    I was talking about officiating flopping. The refs can't see flopping now so we can't really expect them to suddenly start seeing it.

    And I agree that players shouldn't complain about every play, but I don't think most of them do. And the officials have the ability to hand out a tech if they are being abused.

    The first step they need to take is to discipline refs. You can have 4 refs but if they aren't disciplined, the terrible mistakes will still be made.

    Judgement calls shouldn't be reversible. Even if it is in the restricted zone.

    The only thing that should be reviewable is whether the player was there or not.
