Jesse Wagstaff Should be Flagged by NBL
Over the course of his career Jesse Wagstaff has become synonymous with: grappling, hooking, throwing elbows, blatant moving screens, flops, delaying the game, and generally anything he can get away with to provoke the opposition and fool the referees.
The worst part isn't that he is a repeat-instigator of these actions, but that it's one of the league's worst kept secrets and nothing is done about it.
The referees supposedly look over the game tape as a form of review after matches: surely it should be plain to see that Jesse being tangled up with an opposition player 20x in a single game isn't coincidence... yet he is given the benefit of the doubt when it comes to foul calls and technicals.
Coincidences don't just occur over, and over, and over, and over again. This happens every week!
Wagstaff and players like him should be flagged after sufficiently defining their playing style around parlour tricks that are a detriment to the game.
