Sigh...once again I will try to explain this slowly for our little jinxed buddy. None of us defended any call made by J. Crawford...we simply dumped on you little fanboys coming onto an officials website and b*tching about an official - not his calls, but b*tching about him personally...as I said before (if you bothered to actually read it) all officials make mistakes. Obviously Crawford made some and is going to pay - I never defended that...but I will tell you and other fanboys that you are wrong when you question that officials integrity or make blanket statements such as "he's horrible" or (like others did) make comments that Crawford was only calling things to make some team owner happy...discuss the calls all you want, but leave the personal attacks out of it...

Ya know, as much as we hate the fanboys that come running in here everytime their team gets screwed, I think that in this situation we have to admit that our boy Joey really jacked something up. I mean, for the league to suspend him for the entire playoffs, after admitting he's one of the top rated officials in the league, he apparently really jacked something up. I'm guessing that the assertion by Duncan that Joey challenged him to a fight was probably supported by some recording that picked it up, probably from some courtside mic or something, and that's why they felt such a long suspension was warranted.

So, let the fanboys have their fun on this one.

True....but a waste of time, DJ. Fanboys never get it. That's why they're fanboys.

Just another reason to not watch the NBA anymore anyway imo.

Isn't this kind of like a professional wrestling official getting dumped because he didn't see someone get hit with a chair? I think it might just be a ploy to get people to stop talking about teams dumping games to have a shot at Durant and Oden. It's the NBA. They do whatever puts fans in the seats.

Yup, a simple, "I was joking" would have done wonders on this one. Of course, you could always just dig your heels in and prove the natives right. You made the call.

I agree...he screwed up and is facing the consequences of that. Does that make him a "horrible official"?? Did he screw up just to "make Cuban happy"??? Is he a terrible person?? Nope to all of those...so let's discuss his mistake and how we can all learn from it, but attacking him as a person? Nope...

Even Stern admitted that both "he has a history" and "he's consistently one of the top rated officials."

Career over?

Just saw on ESPN's Outside the Lines. Stern intimated that Crawford may have officiated his last game of his career. That's just ashame.

Hell, they come on here hollering and whining like it was us who made the mistake and they fail to realize none of us on here are NBA officials. Heck, less than 5% of us actually could give a care about NBA. Joey made a mistake we all agree. He is human, humans make mistakes. Gosh noone comes on here hollering at the coaches when you are the cause for your team losing and probably because this is a basketball OFFICIALS forum, not a coaches nor a fans!

I'M NOT A FANBOY! I'M AN OFFICIAL TOO ! Joey was wrong this time. We all make mistakes. Duncan whines, but so does Nowitski, Bryant, James, etc. I'm tired of always being called a fanboy if I question an official on this forum. I don't mind when I get questioned by my fellow officials after a game. I try to learn from it.
