Good stuff on NBA ref Danny Crawford
Posted May 07, 2009 - 06:19 PM
*As we pointed out before Sunday’s Game 1, in Mavs playoffs games worked by Crawford from 2001-to-2005, the Mavs record was 0-8. (Those years, Dallas was 41-37 in games NOT worked by Crawford.)
*Now we’re updated to this additional info: Since 2001, the Mavs are 53-50 overall in playoffs. Dallas record when Crawford is NOT working the game is 52-35. Dallas’ record when Crawford IS working the Mavs game is. … 1-15.
*Want more? The one Mavs win under Crawford’s watch was in the 2006 Phoenix series, a Dallas blowout victory. Also in 2006, in the NBA Finals, guess who worked Game 3 against the Heat, when Dwyane Wade was allowed to shoot as many FTs (18) as the entire Mavs team made, all leading to Dallas’ two-point loss? That would be Danny Crawford.
And in Game 6, when the Mavs lost by three points?And Wade shot 21 free throws, two fewer than the number shot by the entire Mavs team?
Danny Crawford strikes again.
Seriously, Danny Crawford is the damned Grim Reaper.

And what's the reason for him hating Dallas?

NBA has the biggest officiating problem of any league by far and it's not even close. It's almost like baseball's huge steroid problem sometimes in a way.
That's actually a good comparison, Chicano.
As long as revenues are up and people are buying the product, the league's ignore the huge white elephant in the room.
Now, if the league truly began to suffer, I could see the next comissioner come in and really clean up the league's officiating.
After-all, you don't have to get any profits back when you admit to a mistake, just ask Bud Selig.

I've always wondered if the refs get graded or reviewed. I guess not....
