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

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
