Now the NBA has a Pete Rose

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

Good chance he's the only one.......I don't like the Rose anology.

      Last night my son and out went out for quick panfish trip to a local lake after dinner. Did not have any live bait but we usually do well tossing small jigs/plastics. Surprisingly we were the only boat at the landing and the only boat out fishing on this heavily developed lake. It did not take us long to find the huge sunnies. They were really stacked in 4-6'. The lake was pretty calm and we could hundreds of them swimming under the boat. We didn't stay there long but they were very aggressive. I had one that touched 10" and a few others over 9. We did not keep any. Looking for active crappies we went to spot number 2. Again going super shallow we could see quite a few in 2-3' around there beds. They of course were pretty spooky and did not like the boat being so close. We backed out and tossed into and around lilly pads. We ended up catching about a dozen. All released. I wish I wouldn't have left my phone in the truck as I would have loved to get a picture. Just amazing how black they are right now! Again didn't stay very long. Just a quick trip to scratch the itch..

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.
