“It’s great. Any time you’re playing for your life, these [games] are life or death, literally.”
Ummm, not quite, Mr. A-Rod, sir. Not quite.
I think this is great. The NBA has the worst officiating of any sport in the world. Inconsistency, allowances for “star” players, home crowd influence, and so on. It drives me insane sometimes. If a game were called consistently, you’d either have no fouls or 100 fouls. Players are constantly pushing on each other and then they get called for a foul when they hand-check? What?
I meant to post this video of Colt McCoy after the BCS National Championship game, in which he was hurt badly enough to miss 3/4 of the game.
I admire his answers and composure.
