NBA Suspends Referee Joey Crawford - Discuss

I think it's about time. Referee's need to know that they are going to be held accountable to just like players and coaches and that they are not "above the law". Being a MFFL I still thought it was a shitty call on Duncan and didn't deserve the ejection. Crawford did the same thing to Nellie a few years ago for being at half court with his hands on his hips staring down Crawford. Discuss.

NBA commissioner suspends referee indefinitely
Stern hands out stern penalty in aftermath of Crawford-Duncan incident
By Jeff Caplan
Stat-Telegram Staff Writer

If NBA referee Joey Crawford was looking for a fight with Spurs forward Tim Duncan, he instead got one from NBA commissioner David Stern on Tuesday.

Stern indefinitely suspended Crawford for improper conduct after hitting Duncan with two technical fouls and an ejection late in the third quarter as Duncan was laughing on the Spurs’ bench during Sunday's 91-86 Mavericks victory.

Crawford’s suspension will cover the rest of the regular season and the entire playoffs.

“Joey’s handling of this situation failed to meet the standards of professionalism and game management we expect of NBA referees,” Stern said in a statement released by the league early Tuesday afternoon. “Especially in light of similar prior acts by this official, a significant suspension is warranted. Although Joey is consistently rated as one of our top referees, he must be held accountable for his actions on the floor, and we will have further discussions with him following the season to be sure he understands his responsibilities.”

After the game, Duncan accused Crawford of having a vendetta against him and said that Crawford asked him during the game if he wanted to fight.

Stern was upset with Crawford’s assessment of the second technical foul and ejection following laughter by Duncan while seated on the bench and Craword's inappropriate comments to Duncan during the game.

Duncan said he complained about one play and that Crawford had egged him on during the game.

“He looked at me and said, ‘Do you want to fight? Do you want to fight?’” Duncan said after the game. “I didn’t say anything to him anyway. If he wants to fight, we can fight. I don’t have any problem with him, but we can do it if he wants to. I have no reason why in the middle of a game he would yell at me, ‘Do you want to fight?’ ”

Crawford said afterward that Duncan was incessantly complaining. He said that Duncan continued to laugh “behind our back” and continued to complain, “so I threw him out.”

David Stern doesnt want the Mavs to win in the playoffs. Can you imagine the Burs beating the Mavs without Duncan?

He deserves it....however I can think of a whole gang of refs that should have been suspended for their conduct last year....like the entire crew of game 4 when Wade shot 30 free throws.

Hopefully this sets a precedent for the officials and they call the games fairly throughout the playoffs.

Agree.

Stern still doesn't want the Mavs to win, he hates Cuban - but he has to do something like this to seem fair. lol

I thought Crawford was picking on Duncan.

Do I think the Mavs will beat the Spurs if they meet in the playoffs??? Yes...

Do I think it will be a matter of officiating if they do meet....no

Who said I was mad!? He probably does. Duncan is known as a whiny bitch by all the officials in the league. I don't know what he said to Crawford, but I'm sure it wasn't, "Great call on Umberto!"

Duncan is a whiney bitch and I got a huge kick out of what happened. If you'll remember a few weeks ago, Dirk got a T for making a smartass remark from the bench. Two and you're out. It's not like he just ejected him.

Did he whack a player across the face with his stick? Did he "make it rain"? Did go into the stands to punch a fan in the face?

Otherwise I don't understand it....

Did Dork laugh, or actually make a smartass comment?

From what I saw, he merely made a comment. I wasn't within earshot (or even in the arena) to know exactly what Dirk said. But no, he did not laugh hysterically like a little girl being tickled.

Tim Duncan is the biggest BITCH in the fucking league. Waaa waaa waaa waaa. Fucking grown ass god damn cry baby. Pussy mother fucker.

That being said, I'm glad Stern finally did something (bout damn time) with the fucking circus freaks errr refs. Hopefully this will be a wake up call to them, and things will change now that they know they aren't the third coming of Christ.

Duncan/Spurs complain about a ref and get him tossed for the rest of the season.

Mavs complain about a ref and get fucked in the Finals.

Injustice? Bias? I think so....

Did the Mavs just whine about general foul calls, or did they get a phantom T called on them too?

I can't believe you Mav homers are actually siding with f'n Joe Crawford. Take off the blinders. If this was Dork that got the T, Cuban would be starting campaigns for David Stern's assassination and all of you would be spewing conspiracy theories.

Just because Stern has a personal vendetta with Cuban, doesn't make what is going on right, fair, or anything else. Someone in Stern's position is supposed to put personal issues aside, and it's quite obvious he's incapable of doing so. Does that mean it's ok? Fuck no.

We're glad douchebag Crawford got beaned for this latest one,he has some personal issues and don't need him on the floor trying to run the games his way.

Still doesn't surprise me he called Duncan out for a fight on the floor.
