Why not a dozen?

After Pierce fouls out in overtime, Jeff Van Gundy had the following wisdom:

"This is why I am a proponent of seven fouls. A game like this shouldn't come down to foul trouble. It needs to be the best against the best."


Wow

I took that to mean 7 fouls, if the game goes into OT.

Even more, Magic & Broussard are saying the D-Wade should have "jumped into" Daniels on the last shot to draw the foul. Granted, Daniels had no LGP whatsoever, and was moving in the air somewhat laterally, but even if D-Wade came into him, shouldn't that still be a no-call?

That's why I'm starting to wonder if it's worth watching NBA games to listen to him abuse both the game and the sportscasting industry.

And then he claimed that foul was a "play-on"? What? Pierce ran right through him!

Maybe they should just play the games under summer rules...no foul outs and running clock.

Dick Vitale has been a proponent of not DQing players for fouls as well.

And the game would go to hell in a hand basket if that was the case. There would be no incentive to not foul people constantly and it would be used as a strategy to make the game what these guys cry about, a foul shooting contest.

This is why I have to roll my eyes every time JVG speaks. Because even if they had 7 fouls then people would complain if a player got 7 fouls.

Peace

Players don't even foul out that often as it is. You only hear of this when a player fouls out during a playoff game or during the tournament.

Shaq used to foul out all the time and people suggested that more fouls should be called on him. People just want it both ways that is all.

Peace

No...that's a foul call on the defense 99/100 times.

I almost hurled the remote at the TV when I heard that one...Instead of getting an OPEN shot with a beautiful fake (which he did), these two geniuses advocate trying to draw a marginal, B.S. foul to win or tie by "jumping into" the defender. Had the shot gone in...these two would be babbling on and on about Wade doing the right thing...a brilliant decision...big time player...blah, blah, blah.

Between them and JVG's complete ignorance of ANYTHING related to the rules, I find myself talking to (yelling at) the TV more and more. My wife thinks I'm losing it. Next game will be watched with the volume off.

Fed is (4 * 8) / 5 = 1 foul per 6.4 minutes.

NCAA is (2 * 20) / 5 = 1 foul per 8 minutes.

FIBA is (4 * 10) / 5 = 1 foul per 8 minutes.

NBA is (4 * 12) / 6 = 1 foul per 8 minutes.

But because the NBA does have a very strong entertainment element to the game, I would enjoy (only) a 7th foul for games that go to OT. (4 * 12) + 5) / 7 = 7.6, which is not much of a change.

i'm with everyone on vangundy. What i do is mute the tv, and find a radio station that's broadcasting the game. listen to the radio guys (almost always much better) and watch the game. can almost always find a station that is in sync with the tv. it's a win-win.

I like the idea I've heard floated around that you don't foul out the players at all ... but any foul over (5 in college, 6 in NBA) is a technical foul - 2 shots and the ball.
