ah good to hear. If they didn't rescind it, he would've been suspended for game 4 because he has 2 flagrants.

good job in unplugging one of your bolt-on nuts stu jackson....


once we're applying the finishing death blows to the rockets and this raging lunatic takes another cheap shot at the lakers, what are you gonna do? suspend him for next season?

That's the right call; but, what I hate about this stuff is the fact that the player cannot be re-instated for the game in which he was just ejected. The 2 shots and the ball (the ball part) can't be taken away.


Retroactive fixes only help so much.


In this instance, it's no big deal, but I've seen plenty of games where overanxious refs making Flagrant foul calls (that were later rescinded) have cost teams games.
