Why would anyone want to discuss FEEBLE rules?

I wonder if other Americans, like say for instance Scott Corbin, complains about FIBA rules.

I mean, he's a premium NBA official and an Olympic basketball official. In terms of success, it's hard to beat that.

Nobody here comes remotely close to being in the same ballpark as Mr. Corbin.

Obviously, you aren't English or an English major.

All 50 states play high school basketball by NFHS rules.

All colleges, no matter what state they are in, play by NCAA rules.

I have no idea where you obtained you misinformation but you are misinformed.

BTW, it is an American game.

It is not a FEEBLE game.

Apparently, the largest sport in Europe is surrendering.

Sorry - couldn't resist.

Why would officials from America want to know more about FIBA rules? Unless you are going to work a world tournament there is no need for FIBA rules to ever be discussed here or to FIBA rules to ever be used.

I am sure there is some FIBA forum on the internet somewhere. It is just not here right now. If there was a FIBA site here, there probably would be many threads without many responses.

Peace

JRut

I don't always agree with you, but in this case I do. There is not really a need for FIBA to be disscused here as most people don't use it or have an interest in it.

The only thing is Chrisgrassy was simply asking if anyone knew of ANOTHER forum like this one that dealt with FIBA. Not if FIBA should be discussed here or if FIBA is "feeble", just do you know of a place that talks about it SOMEWHERE else on the net.

For a first time poster to the site with a very appropriate question I don't understand the need for the put downs and insults. I mean Chrisgrassy even complimented this website in his/her post. JMO. I know it is the summer and things are slower, but I have been coming to this site for a few years and have found it useful and informative. But lately it seems to be jokes, pictures of squirles (etc), insults and not really about basketball.

Maybe others are enjoying it more than me, but I personally liked the posted that talked about rules and applications. I loved the links that tomgunn had to plays. I hope there is more of that.

In the end, JRut will tell me "you don't like it, don't read it." and maybe that will happen, but I am not sure that I am alone. If I am, thanks for listening and I will move on, but I will be sorry to lose this resource and the way it used to be.

And chrisgrassy, no I don't know of anothe webpage about FIBA.

To Chris or any others who want to discuss FIBA rules or ask specific questions as they pertain to FIBA, feel free to e-mail me. I officiate FIBA rules in Canada for high school games as well as NCAA rules for college games.
