Skip Bayless says that flopping essentially is a part of the game because it is a player deceiving the ref into calling/not calling a foul. He then says he just expects the ref to call the right play and make the flopper look stupid there. How does he expect the refs to do that if they are being deceived, as he earlier stated? That is the whole point of this after game fines for flops, to closely examine deceit on a subject and fine them accordingly. THAT will make the flopper look like a dumbass. And I love it.

Well what this new ruling does is get rid of the big flops. See taking a charge and falling down when your getting hit is part of the game but doing this.

These kind of things just ruin the game. They are in no way skillfully done or fair. Maign someone look like they just hit you is a real flop. Thats why I love this new rule. The refs miss way to much of those flops and this will make guys like lebron who flop all the time think twice before doing it. Also if you getting fined all the time for flopping trust me you reputation is about to go down the gutter,
