    In every Ohio St. game in this tournament, Oden should have fouled out by halftime. Durant of Texas was a little better with the fouls, maybe the beginning of the second half, but he is out now anyway. Noah of Florida (who I just plain can't stand anyway) would probably get away with tackling opposing players on the court.

    These players are being pampered, babied, and have had every single call go there way. The announcers talk of them as if they are gods. They could take a hockey stick on the court and bash peoples skulls in, the refs wouldn't call it a foul, and the announcers would say it was a good no call by the ref.

    I can't stand it, these players from the lower ranked teams are busting there a$$es out there and playing great games against them only to be whistled for fouls they didn't commit, or be raped by one these "stars" and not have it called.

    Something needs to be done, someone call batman.

    I hate people who can't watch a sporting event without whining and crying about the officials. Oden's been in foul trouble every game, so STFU.

    That's half the fun. The other half is whining and crying about the management (at least in Toronto it is).

    I must admit first that I'm a Florida fan. I agree with you that someone who whines about officiating is missing the whole point. Joakim Noah has NEVER been in foul trouble, nor has he been accused of flagrantly using his notoriety to get away with anything. It pains me that most people don't like the team.
    Noah is ugly, and looks like a mutated Judy Garland. But to blame officials for letting things go is inane, and short-sighted.

    I hate you to.

    I almost never whine about officiating, but this has been obvious and many people know it, to act like this has been a well officiated tournament is what would be short-sighted.

    noah is a dirty player who uses an abundance of energy as an excuse to throw large numbers of cheap elbows.
