I'm not blaming the refs,they did as good of a job calling it in real time as possible. I'm talking about Stu Jackson & Co. up at the league's office. This should easily be upgraded to a Flagrant Two resulting in a one game suspension,it was retaliatory and excessive,considering Collison didn't even have the ball and was checked from behind(resembled a defensive pass interference penalty in Football). That's why you review incidents after the fact to make the correct judgement.
Hinrich is bigger than DC i'll give you that but you need to check both replays again. Kirk didn't even hit the ground and was hipchecked running side by side with Posey,he even had the ball lol. No way that play was dirtier than Wade's cheapshot.
Flagrant "2" (FFP2) - unnecessary and excessive contact committed by a player against an opponent. The opposing team is awarded two (2) free throws and possession and the player committing the foul is automatically ejected.
