Surprised There is not More Outrage Over Monday's Officiating

I posted this elswhere, and it got locked..not surprisingly.

Never Thought There Was Such Blatant Tampering By Refs Until

I watched the Nets Clippers game on Monday.

I'm not complaining about the outcome, we're the Nets, we're used to losses and I'm not sure they altered the outcome (despite the fact we came back from 17 to tie the game half way through the 4th). But I have never seen refs such blatantly cheat by not making 3 obvious calls tonight. I'm not sure who was in on it among the refs, who told them to do it, how much they get, but this was obvious.

Twice, the Clippers goal tended 2 shots that had already hit the back board, yet the call was not made. It is hard TO miss when the shot hits off the back board and then gets swatted, yet all 3 refs missed it?

One other time, Griffin clearly hit the ball out of bounds and the refs even reviewed the video which evidenced this and said it did not!?! The camera scrolled past half-court and the announcers after the call. I thought it was funny watching the set of Net announcers talking about the call, while most others (LAC announcers I assume) were silent. Again, the refs had video of Griffin hitting the ball out of bounds, they watched it, and said it did not.

I don't have the clips available, but if anyone does please post them.

The point is, I am now a firm believer the officiating in the NBA can be manipulated. Now I'm curious as to by who and how they are compensated for their cooperation.

Please lock or delete this too Netsdaily if you think this will get me or your site in trouble. Otherwise I think it is a fair observation.
