    I thought the NBA got rid of Tim Donaghy. I had no idea they put him in charge of Officiating.

    As far as I know, it hasn't been even; the Raps have two, a couple of other teams have one, and that's it. It seems like they only do it with the most egregious plays...up until last night.
    Well, a disparity of two isn't too bad, but the NBA probably doesn't want it to get any worse than that, i.e. some teams with four or more apologies while others have zero.

    I notice it's always non-calls that affect us, rather than us being called for fouls on the defensive end. I don't think there have been many calls either way in the close finishes. Maybe the refs are just swallowing their whistles, and we should be hacking other teams the same as they're doing to us?

    I'm guessing that they try to make it more or less even so that it seems like no team has gotten it worse than any other. That way it looks like they're doing something about the mistakes, without making the officiating appear lopsided overall.

    simple as fining the refs when they fuck up like this. non calls or obvious bad calls. fine them.

    players and coaches get fined if they speak wrong. players are getting fined if they fall down on purpose now.

    fine the refs.

    all they get is ostricized and attacked when it turns out they work for the mob.

    some accountability that does damage beyond a "i'm sorry" is what is needed.

    How many apologies has the NBA been giving out this year? I'm guessing that they try to make it more or less even so that it seems like no team has gotten it worse than any other. That way it looks like they're doing something about the mistakes, without making the officiating appear lopsided overall.

    I'm happy Casey 'lashed' out at the refs but come on....really? That's all Casey had in him?!? Make the 25k worth it next time
    Not to mention he also praised the refs in the post game...L A M E.

    I honestly think BC is gonna reimburse Casey the 25000. Heard him on the Brady and Lang show saying he was proud of DC and thought he would have said something earlier. That kind of endorsement from management suggests to me that management will put their money where their mouth is and foot the bill.

    I hope so at least.

    Bad call, again. I can understand Casey's reaction. A no call at the end of the game is not the only reason for a loss. I saw the title of this thread and it made me wonder how the Raptors could play a zone defense last night and not be aware of Kyle Korver's location at all times. At this level it's a disappointment.

    Worth it. 25K is well worth that speech/comment.

    When Casey said his peace, no apology would be forthcoming. They would look even more foolish with a 3rd apology and then fining Casey to boot.

    If no fine for Casey comes, consider that an apology.
    Nope.... no apology!

    Marc J. Spears ‏@SpearsNBAYahoo

    Raptors coach Dwane Casey has been fined $25,000 for public criticism of officiating.
    But considering how Shaq, the Atlanta bloggers, and anyone with a brain who watched it knows the difference, whatever.

    If a few extra lottery balls propels us in to the top 3, well, that would be worth this all this angst and maybe the conspiracy was actually to help the Raptors than hinder.

    What about adding a couple** extra officials strictly confined to the baseline? wont fix everything but might help.

    It's really unfortunate that the calls haven't been going our way.

    The refs are professionals and they're doing the best they can. If you start "penalizing" the refs, you're going to get a whole lot of whistles "just to make sure" - that's going to destroy the flow of the game.
