    Default NBA Reviewing Jeff Foster fouls

    http://sports.espn.go.com/chicago/nb...ory?id=6409539

    The NBA is reviewing two hits Indiana Pacers center Jeff Foster leveled against the Chicago Bulls during Game 3 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinals series on Thursday, according to a league spokesman.

    Foster banged into Derrick Rose in the third quarter when the Bulls guard was driving the lane. Rose also was hit by Tyler Hansbrough on the play. Rose responded emotionally by getting in the face of Foster, who was called for the foul.

    "He's so fast, I just went in there and ended up hitting him," Foster said. "He reacted. It's the playoffs. I'm sure he's going to get hit plenty of times."

    Rose called the foul "a little irritating" but didn't seem angry after the game. "That's his job," Rose said. "But you have to stand up to it. I was just trying to go to the basket and create contact."

    Later in the quarter, Foster dropped an elbow to the head of Luol Deng and drew a foul.

    Neither play resulted in a flagrant call.

    "This is the playoffs. There are going to be hard fouls," Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. "In my eyes, that's what they've been doing the whole series. They're fouling hard. That's part of the game. When it crosses over the line, I think the officials will make the call.

    "I have a lot of respect for Foster. He's a hard playing guy, a tough guy. He's been a good player in this league for a long time."

    ESPNChicago.com's Mark Montieth contributed to this report.

    Well if he's going in looking for contact i'd prefer a good hard foul over a touch foul that does nothing to stop him from scoring and still sends him to the line....

    I hope we don't get soft inside because of this, it's game four do or die...

    I really don't think Foster's fouls have crossed the line. Hard? Yes. The Bulls have fouled hard too though. Noah and the rest of their big guys are not soft. Of course we don't have a superstar that people want to protect so it doesn't get noticed.

    The player they need to review is Carlos Boozer. It's not his hard fouls but his dirty play. He gives cheap shot after cheap shot. The foul he had on Tyler in game 1 was dirty (not hard but dirty). Tyler is on the break and dunks it and Boozer pushes him from behind. That was dirty.

    Boozer is incapable of boxing out or rebounding without using his forearms liberally and shoving players out of the way.

    I think Jeff's fouls have been the perfect balance between soft and just trying to hurt people. In other words, playoff fouls.

    Rose and Tom's quotes tell you how pointless this review is.

    Wow, this just shows how soft the game is becoming. Compared to some hits I have seen the Oak Tree and Davis Bros land this was a love tap.

    The cynic in me says the series has been too close so there needs to be something done to reduce the Pacers' chances even more.

    I'm expecting Jeff to be suspended for tomorrow night's game. If it was, oh, say, Boozer hitting someone in the head with an elbow while trying to push him away, now THAT would not be a flagrant or a suspension.

    Of course not, it would have been a blocking foul on us or some other defensive foul called.

    /of course I'm not really serious.

    Looks like he was going for the ball to me. Someone needs to prove otherwise.

    correct me if im wrong, but an intentional elbow to the head is a suspension, whether or not someone got hurt.

    there is no way to tell from that video whether there was intent there or not.

    aside from hooking jeff up to a polygraph, there isn't going to be an answer to that question.

    so whoever is reviewing the tape will have to make a determination, and he will be influenced by his biases (whether unconscious or not)...now deng is not some huge star, but i doubt that the backup center on the eighth seed is going to get any kind of benefit of the doubt on a call like that...however, it does help at least that jeff is a vet (and again, that the NBA's revenue stream isn't dependent on the volume of jersey sales in Sudan)

    Because the cynic in me isn't always rational?

    And that discussion was about bias for decisions on the floor, which this is not about.

    Typical NBA Bull****. Jeff will probably be suspended. He doesn't play for Chicago.

    I suppose they'll be reviewing Boozer too. Right? Right?

    Sigh. The post-90s NBA is pretty lame.

    So do we review Thomas' elbow to Hansborough too?

    And in that situation we've got a guy with one ugly ear to back up the take down.

    Just wanted to say polygraphs are junk science. Oh, and Jeff Foster's fouls weren't that hard at all....as someone said previously, it just shows how soft the league has become...that is all.

    Thomas got a one game suspension for that. HA! Of course not.

    Quick question, there was a foul called on Hans when it looked like Boozer just hit him in the face. I was at the game and missed the replay, but was watching Hans when it happened and it really looked like Boozer purposely just hit him in the face. To be honest I was a fairly long way up in the balcony. Anyone know what I'm talking about and have a replay? Thanks
