Now the NBA has a Pete Rose

9 posts in this topic

How much do you guys think his betting on games has to do with an outcome of that game? He's not the one shooting the ball, I am thinking this is going to come down to ethics, and do you think more will come forward?

An NBA referee has been accused of shaving points and gambling on NBA games he was officiating plus other games he wasn't officiating.

Sounds like he was hooked up with the mob. Not a good thing.

I think the NBA needs to get at the root of their officiating problems. Pay the refs more money, police/review the calls afterward like the NFL, use instant reply, do something.

I think he was the only one. I think it would be kind of hard for a ref to shave points and gamble on games he did. He is not the player playing or the coach sending guys in.

I think the NBA is the hardest to officiate. On every play a player is whining and complaining about a call or non-call. I think there should be more "T's" handed out. NBA players should quit whining and play harder. It seems like there are no fundamentals in basketball anymore. On a missed shot nobody boxes out, they all turn and look at the basket. No one practices free throws anymore, the last two minutes in the game is free throw time. Everyone is working on how sick a dunk they can do. I don't watch the NBA anymore because it is all one on one. Well, not all of it. There are two teams that play together IMO, Utah and San Antonio. I don't like the NBA because it doesn't seem like it used to. Just my opinion.

Yeah thats the thing- he wasn't shooting the ball, so, I don't know how much his input affects the game, but I am sure he had a little to do with the results

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
