Flagrant or not? Rondo


Recommended Posts

It could not have been anymore of a flagrant call in my opinion, the way Rondo went after brad, there was no intent in going for the ball. Do you buy into the debate that the refs cant make that call to change the game in the last minutes? What a crock, a foul is a foul, aflagrant is a flagrant.

i think that was a joke, he went for his face its pretty clear, he was bleeding and it was a 2 shot foul???? I think its gonna be more interesting with Howard with his elbow he tossed, will he get a 1 games suspension

Should have been flagrant, but better than no call. Check out the moving pick about 9 seconds in by Miller. MAKE YOUR FREE THROWS!

It was reviewed by the nuba and they made the "right" call. I like watching Rondos eyes focus right on Millers head anybody else notice that?

You must have been watching another game man because that was a cheap shot by Rondo and a gutless call by the refs who are known to swallow their whistles in the closing minutes of a close game. It was even more gutless by the NBA office who reviewed the play "for hours" before coming up with the conclusion that there was no flagarant foul. Would you expect them to rule against thier refs? NO Because if they did then it would put a taint on the outcome of the game, WHICH IT SHOULD HAVE! Miller should have been given two shots and as a result of his injury with a flagarant foul the BULLS could have elected who they wanted to take the two shots AND then had the ball as well. Instead, the gutless refs would not pull the trigger and make the correct call so Miller was forced to shoot the two shots with a bloody lip and hazy vision after being mauled by Rondo because a simple foul with an injury would have allowed Rivers to name the player to shoot the shots. Totally bogus imo.

Glad the Bulls stuffed it to the Celts tonight and looking forward to them stealing game seven and sending the Celts to early tee times! GO BULLS!

Windy we are on the same page here, you must not have read my first post. I cannot believe it was not a flagrant. I just wished the Bulls would not have got hosed in that game with the no flagrant call. Last night would have closed the door on the Celts. That would have been sweet!

Totally my bad Fishin, I did not read your first post. Can you believe it went down that way? I can, got to protect the star players and keep the "champs" hopes alive! Sorry dude, I guess we both get excited about the game. Here's to a Bulls victory in Game 7 and I hope KG plays and gets smoked!

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"

      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!

      I had a good start to the season on opener. Fishing was slow but consistent. I had four eaters in the box by lunch dragging perch raps. Crappies were biting. I haven't been up since so don't know how things have changed since then, but I'm sure the walleye continue to migrate out into the main basins.

      Let’s start this by congratulating Brianf and son for winning their second City Autoglass Walleye Classic last weekend. These guys know how to fish.  We just got to the lake for the season. Chores are almost done and I’m ready to fish.  red(new dog is more yellow)labguy

      I tried starting a 2024 Lake Vermilion Fishing Report topic but it doesn't show up on this board.   Maybe somebody else knows how to do it?

      Yep crazy. 🤪 I played goalie in HS and my two grandsons play hockey now.  
    • gimruis
      Hockey gear in general is very expensive.  I was in a Pure Hockey last month to get my skates sharpened and while they were doing it I looked around at gear.  A new pair of CCM/Bauer customized skates can easily top 1000 bucks.  Then you need everything else.  It would be several thousand before you had everything.  And then your kid grows like a weed so you need to buy bigger gear.   Then there's goalie gear.  That's enough to buy a small boat.   Nothing cheap about that sport by any means.

      That's a good idea Mike.  But, my sweet wife who's never killed anything in her life, wants them all dead and their skulls on poles! 👹  🤣
