Charles Barkley...

...go home. That was quite a rant in the studio after the ND/Xavier game. Apparently rules weren't meant to be enforced the entire 40 minutes of the game.

I agree. He needs to stick to the NBA. Referees shouldn't decide the game, players should he says. Well, a player decided to break a rule. I wonder how long HE would last with a whistle.

Didn't hear the rant, but honestly I'm not a huge fan of the lane violation

Wasn't a lane violation, but a violation by the defender outside the circle behind the free thrower.
As to "not being a fan" of it, I'd be interested in the post-game review and how a no-call would've been critiqued had it not been called.
Quite a rant. "The officials should not decide the game like that." I guess players brainfarting like that should be overlooked, for the sake of the game. And as to the attempt to stop the clock by grabbing the opponent's shirt, yanking it out of his pants, I guess that doesn't qualify as intentional to Sir Charles.
Wow.

He's a certified idiot.

"John Adams, I don't care if it's the rule!"

Those are clear and obvious infractions under NCAA rules. They weren't even close. Hell, under NBA rules, if that player would have grabbed that jersey like he did before the ball was released, it would be an away-from-the-play foul and be one FT for anyone on the floor and the ball back!

That lane violation was clear as day...literally 3-4 steps on the court. You CAN'T ignore that!

Exactly. The NBA is much more strict on end of the game fouls etc.,

Thanks

Agreed.

Also, who was the other commentator that effectively said the officials should not have penalized the lane violation, but just given them a warning first?

Stupid commentators.

It has to be called. Too big of an advantage for a player of either team to enter the area below FT line extended before ball hits rim. The rule as written is not broken.

Get the ESPN guys in the studio. The ones that actually cover the college game!

Yes, players lined up in the lane spaces, but players not lined up have same restrictions as the shooter which says ball has to hit the rim.

Players/coaches have to give us an opportunity to give them a warning...if you violate so egregiously before you can warn them, then you have to go and get it first time it happens.
