Default Fouls Are Ruining Basketball

The way they call these touch fouls is taking all the excitement out of the game. Refs dictate too much.

A lower scoring game with a lot of physicality is a lot better to watch than a whistle blowing every 25 seconds to send someone to the free throw line.

Gotta agree with you on this point. Every minor touch or bump is called a foul... these are grown men playing basketball and yeah there is going to be some contact, but it doesn't mean a foul should be called every time.

The foul called on Carrera at the end (and-one), he didn't even touch the guy. The ref called the foul because the guy fell down because he was off-balance from weaving his way between two defenders.

I think this is what is leading to the flopping issue that we see in the NBA. I can't blame the players for beating the refs at their own game. If you going to call it I'm fall down and make it look good every time someone gets close.

31 PFs called on USC
20 PFs called on A&M

Combine that with 17 turnovers to 11 turnovers and that's your ball game

Default Re: Fouls Are Ruining Basketball

The reason that more fouls are being called is due to the fact that the game has progressively gotten more and more physical over the past 20 years. The NCAA Basketball Rules Committee met last summer and decided to call the game tighter and try to bring basketball back to where it was previously. It will take time for all teams to adjust to this. Are the officials doing a good job at what they want to accomplish? Maybe not as consistently as they want to. There will need to be some tweaking done, sort of similar to the tweaking the Football Rules Committee needs to do with the targeting penalty. The spirit behind the change is correct. It is just a matter of time to get used to it.

Hmm... I never would have thought the game was getting more physical. That's the complete opposite of what players that played 20 years ago are saying.

What would happen if the refs really did call "carrying"? People would have to go back to dribbling with skill...

It's the complete wussification of sports in general, and it has finally come full circle to football. I used to love basketball and played many years growing up. I cannot even watch it anymore. Especially NBA.
