    It comes down to if you think it is fixed. Personally, maybe I am naive, I don't think it is fixed. There is too much at stake should a government inquiry ever come about.

    I think humans make mistakes.... refs are stupid humans too.

    But I also think blame needs to be assigned to the Raptor players and coaching staff. 2 missed FT's in last 1:15 of regulation, dumb time out when Boozer had his shoes off, and very poor team offense in OT.

    There are too many instances where the Raptors could have taken the game on their own for me to solely lay blame on officiating.
    Once again, in full agreement.

    Thanks for the heads up on the realities of the league guys.

    In every part of my life I prefer to focus on what I can control versus what I cannot.
    Says the guy running twitter campaigns to get players traded....OK.

    To get one player traded.

    What can I control in that situation? Letting my displeasure be known. Considering the number of reports that Bargnani is as good as gone, it seems enough people are upset with the situation that something may come of it.

    But you keep blaming the refs for the Raps inability to pull out close wins.

    Officials Mistake in Raptors-Bulls game
    Jan 18 2013 5:00PM

    With one second remaining in the fourth quarter of the Chicago Bulls-Toronto Raptors game on January 16, officials called a foul on Chicago’s Joakim Noah as Toronto’s Amir Johnson gathered the ball while driving to the basket. The officials ruled the foul was on the floor but upon review at the league office, the video replay confirmed that the foul should have been called a shooting foul with Johnson receiving two free throws.

    Only the second time this happened to ANY team in the league if you look through the official statements.

    If we get to three all fans get a lollypop.
