:facepalm ESPN reports:

The NBA announced the guidelines for technical fouls will expand to include "overt" player reactions to referee calls.

The rule is intended to prevent excessive complaining from players.

When players demonstratively throw their hands in the air or demonstrate how he was fouled by hitting his own arm, a technical will be issued.

Even if a player excessively asks about a call in a civilized, referees are instructed to issue a technical foul.[/quote]
Would be nice if the refs didnt actually suck but that's not the case...bets these wont get called against the 3 headed monster, kobe etc..

Players - :facepalm :mad:
Bron, Wade, Bosh etc - :bowdown:
Refs - :rockon: :cheers: :lol :banana:
Stern -

****! Players should have the right to express their emotions after a bad call. Utter bullcrap.

if a ref Ts up a player for just getting angry at a blown call, the ref should be fined 5 grand.

BS. It's a competitive sport. Emotions run high in the game. That's when players are at their best. I'm guessing Stern never played sports as a kid. I wonder if "excessive" includes just staring at he ref (See: Sheed) or laughing on the bench (See: Duncan).

This is getting out of hand. Even last year there were some techs handed out to players who got a PF and then walked away in aggressive fashion :facepalm these players aren't robots, they should be allowed to show some emotion. I miss taunting too.

Looks like Sheed retired on time :oldlol:

wow this is a natural reaction/habit

you don't stop reacting because the rule just changed if you had been doing it naturally for years...

hopefully the refs understand this and take it easy for the first couple years

I doubt it gets enforced to the point where it's noticeably different. We'll see.

Stern's act is tired.

Somebody should tell him that having players act like robots (ala baseball) is not going to have more people want to watch games.

It's like he forgot what got the game so popular in 80s/early 90s. Heated matchups with strong emotions. (Lakers/Celtics, Pistons/Bulls, Bulls/Knicks, etc)

The brawl happened years ago. It's time to let it go.

just another tool to be used to screw w/ the flow of the game.

Retrospectively legitimising Perkins' tech from the Finals? :oldlol:

What a stupid guideline

This is pathetic. Already officiating is the worst ever, now even more "tools" against players? I bet Sheed is happy he retired, he would be suspended within 5 minutes every game. Passion is good for a game, players arent mindless robots, nor refs are faultless.
