Boston Celtics Jermaine O’Neal Gets Flagrant Foul Downgraded: More Proof The Refs Were Terrible
The NBA downgraded Jermaine O’Neal’s flagrant one foul to just a personal foul. This sounds like a good thing, but I wish they had not. The NBA officially said that in a pivotal moment with the Celtics clawing back into the game, the refs blew the call and put another nail into their game one coffin. Can they take away the five point swing with Bibby draining a three?
The bottom line is the refs were awful. They blew call after call. Yes, the Celtics were terrible, but sadly they could have had a chance to steal the game had the game been called down the middle. The real problem is that the NBA may take the foul away, but it does nothing to fix the real problem. This officiating crew should be suspended for the entire playoffs at a minimum. If at my work I grossly make a mistake that costs the company in some way, I will be punished. The NBA lets these guys get away with murder. If they make a serious error, it is swept under the rug. How else does one explain Joey Crawford with a job still? They are given absolute power without any fears of repercussions and thus abuse that power. I know I would think twice before I made a brain dead call or no call if I knew there would be a serious punishment. The sad fact is until the refs are held accountable the NBA is only a step above the WWE in sports entertainment instead of a sport. Remember Go Green Or Go Home!!!!!!!!!!
