Default Should team "fouls to give" be raised from 5 to 10 per quarter?

With the way they're calling fouls now, many ends of quarters are becoming ft contests and it sucks. Would you be in favor of extending the limit to 10?

10 might be too much, maybe 7 or 8 would be good though. I agree, it slows the game down so much with all the fouling, it just gets boring.

Wouldn't there be more fouls if the penalty for them was lessened?

The problem should be solved at the source, but going from 5 to 6 wouldn't kill me.

That'd be better than hand-cuffing teams on defense late in close games. Also, teams can't be aggressive on the boards whe they're in the penalty...

Yeah agreed, rules don't need to be changed, some teams only foul like 15 times a game..
