The NBA

After watching Orlando/Cleveland, you cannot tell me that the NBA playoffs aren't fixed as a neutered puppy!!

I don't think they are fixed to the point where the powers that be decide that the winning team needs to win by x number of points, but there is no doubt that certain players with star power are going to get the benefit of doubt on calls and certain teams are going to be given ever opportunity to win any given game.

I like Lebron but that foul at the end of regulation was a classic case where if it would have been the other guy driving on Lebron for the game tying attempt, it would have been a no call or possibly even an offensive foul.

It's been this way for a long time. I remember Jordan in his prime hacking who he was defending to the point where if it had been done by some shmuck out on the street, he may have been charged with assault but no foul called and then when Jordan had the ball if the guy so much as looked at him wrong if MJ missed his shot, the refs would blow the whistle. I also remember how Shaq in his early years with the Magic couldn't defend those hacks that the Bulls had for centers but all of a sudden he becomes a Laker and a prime time team and all of a sudden he wasn't in foul trouble all the time. The list of star power players and teams that benefit from it has always been a problem with the NBA and I don't suspect it will change any time soon.

As a long time avid Chicago Bulls fan I can say with absolute certainty that I have no idea what you guys are reffering to when you say that Michael Jordan ever got calls that he did not deserve! LOL

(insert tongue in cheek here)

GO Magic, overthrow the King!

WCW,

MJ don't count. He was fouled every time they blew the whistle. No doubt about it. Been watching MJ since his Freshman year at UNC. Been on the Bulls wagon since the Portland Morons drafted Sam Bowie. Marvelous personnel move. Wasn't this same squad that drafted LaRue Martin 1st overall?

There has now been plenty of proof and evidence that the NBA is dirty.....still fun to watch though.

Sandy,

The NBA can tell the refs how to call fouls, especially if the ball in in lebron james hands'. But the NBA can't do anything to make the Magic miss shots. The Magics' team talent is too much for the NBA and Lebron to overcome.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
