Rasheed Wallace recently got his 16th Tech. which results in a one game suspension, then the 17th does nothing, 18th is another one game suspension...

Does that rule carry on in the post-season? Or are techs just techs in the post season?

Clean slate in the playoffs, but the 7th tech brings a supsension. This is pretty obviously a rule made solely for Rasheed.

Kobe isn't making it past 7 games. This is really only a rule that will hurt teams that are in the Finals or possibly the conference finals.

And if a ref gives Sheed a "suspension Tech" in the Finals or conference, he had better hope he's not in the Palace or he had better have a few bodyguards because that place would explode. There is no way that rule should be in effect during a crucial playoff/finals game.

Actually, it was also made for Ron Artest, but since he can't manage to play more than 50 games in 2 years people seem to forget that.

When Wilt came along they had to change some rules because they just hadn't realized what an athletic big man can do-- dunk free throws, give cause for widening the lane, offensive goaltending, etc.

Until Rasheed came along there was never any appreciation that one player could be such a whiny obnoxious jerk to officials that it would be conceivable that he could top 15 technical fouls in a season.

That's 'sheed: lowering the bar.

If the ref gives sheed a suspension tech, then sheed probably should have had his cup of STFU that morning.

If he has that many tech leading up to that point then he deserves to be suspended.

I think you view that in a wrong way Freshprince. If a player manages to collect 7 technical fouls during the playoffs, the suspension is justified, and the ref generally not in fault, of course presupposed the technicals were correct. If Sheed manages this, Detroiters should be angry at R. Wallace and not at the ref.

I agree, but it is always easier to blame the ref instead of the hometown player.

Ron used to be our local martyr.

I can put together a long list of PD posters who now scream about Ron that used to be first in line to defend him and blame the refs or someone else (uh.... JO, for example) for Ron's issues and misbehavior. Some of them would even deny that Ron had misbehaved in the first place. (And ironically some of them were the first to throw 'Sheed under the bus)

:flirt:

The Palace? Explode? C'mon...let's stop characterizing Detroit fans as those who are prone to misbehaving..it's not like they throw things or anything...Not to mention, the most games a team could play in the playoffs would be 28 so getting a technical foul in one of every 4 games is *really* detrimental to a team and Detroit fans only like players who play by the rules, not those that get violent on the court or yell at officials. They understand the value of playing right, just like we do.
