Default Violet Palmer

screwed us over again....how was it that Amir wasn't fouled? i really hope we can get rid casey because a coach who cannot draw up an inbound play should just be an assistant.

anyways, can someone please explain to me why the refs did not take a second look with the replays at the Amir foul on that inbound play? i mean sometimes they will make a call, then rescind the call and head to the scores table to review the play. but tonight, they didn't even bother reviewing the play when there's so much controversy? like how do they decide when to review and not review? is it just by feel? whenever they feel like doing it they will do it and if it's violet palmer she'll automatically screw the raptors.

i thought it is critical especially in the last 2 minutes of the game to review any questionable calls?? why wouldn't they do that instead of having to make the wrong call and then sending us an apology saying they fucked up again while it does nothing to change the outcome of the game? it's almost as if it's better if they don't apologize....it's like someone stabs a innocent bystander and then says sorry i didn't mean to do it, and since there's an apology issued he doesn't have to go to jail or compensate for the sin he committed? like wtf man, if only this works in the real world....too bad the NBA is not real, it's just fantasy sports with shitty refs like violet palmer shitting on whoever she likes.

can you imagine if this is a playoff game and some people place shit load of money to bet on their favourite team. their team would go on to lose due to a blown call so they lose their bet and shit load of money. the very next day nba would apologize saying they missed the call. so do they get a partial refund for the bet? probably not but you can see this is not just a game this might be life and death for some who bet heavy.

this is why the nba is such a joke, when you blow calls all the time and don't do shit to change people start to question if the league is legit....

Well what kind of play has a player in between two guys when you inbound the ball. It was a foul but when you throw what looks to be a TO, refs barely ever bail you out.

Foul calls do not get reviewed. Or rescinded. And I'm not convinced that Amir was fouled. A no call would have been nice. But why all the blame on Violet Palmer? Does she have some kind of influence on the other officials?

The Raptors lost legit. Too many turnovers. Bench showed little. Rudy Gay did very little in the second half. That's a loss on them, not the refs.

I still don't know what we were trying to do there anyway. My guess is Lowry inbounds it to Amir and gets it back for the 3, but not a good play call. Casey is so basic.

what bothers me the most is the refs will review the SHIT out of an obvious simple play when they don't need to just to make a point they are trying to be fair, such as when you can tell CLEARLY who knock the ball out of bounds from the 1st camera angle but the refs would take 15 minutes to review the play from ALL 4 cameras angles to MAKE SURE they are not blind.....

then on the ensuing play they will fuck up by missing a questionable/controversial call and choose NOT to review it. i would welcome the day when robots will call the games

They did not choose to not review it. They have no ability to review foul calls.

i get it now thanks LX....so anything else is fair game for reviews except for foul calls then?

well that puts a lot of pressure on refs then. if the league is NOT going to do anything to give us back the possible win then they should allow the foul calls to be reviewed. an apology is pointless without compensation. it's like a slap in the face saying we fucked up and you are responsible for it

I didn't think there was much there. Contact, yes, but nothing excessive. Lowry should have went elsewhere but forced it to Amir, sandwiched between Mullins and McRoberts, who, given the stage of the game, can be a little more aggressive going for the ball. It looked to me like Amir lost control and tried to sell a call.

I think Casey has perhaps gone to the well too many times with this particular inbounds play, where the inbounder gets the ball back for a three. He's run it a lot in these situations, especially with Jose, and with some success. But I do wonder if Charlotte was prepared for it, or whether Lowry telegraphed it too much. And yeah, in general, Casey doesn't impress me out of timeouts.

I like how you started this thread and named it Violet Palmer but right after the first sentence you go right into getting rid of casey??!!
