I don't understand how "a player's movement away (in ANTICIPATION of contact) results in them falling to the ground" unless they are flopping or just extremely lacking in coordination.

I LOVE the grey and grey and black looks.

VA changed several years ago to a horrid wide stripe shirt. I can only hope they go grey or at least back to regular stripes. Don't see it happening...

This is laughable hyperbole.

IMO, the only credence to any of this "sky is falling" because of end of game fouls is another argument for more states to adopt shot clocks.

All of the rest is...
