    The whole swallowing the whistle until you see if the shot is made or not drives me insane. If its a foul, call it a foul, dont wait to see if he hits the shot and not call it.
    I agree with this x100. It's so common now that it's as if they had a meeting on how to call fouls in the act and completely changed the practice. If that is the case and I missed it, it's a negative change.

    I doubt it, if there was no such thing as a flagrant foul you would see many times more fouls that would qualify as a flagrant than we do.
    Well, that's what I mean. If we punish flopping it will still happen, but at a lower frequency. That doesn't mean will be able to completely remove it from the game, like punishing flagrants hasn't completely removed them.

    I think this is a great point.

    You can't try to eradicate flopping, just minimize it. Currently, flopping has a huge impact on games. They need to find a way to lessen that impact.

    i'm much more concerned about giving calls to superstars than flopping, and it's much more correctable.
