Yep can't believe he went down. Way too cocky now. Even afterwards Aylen looked really pissed off at him and warned him like a school teacher talking to a kid.

Goulding's problem may be that he has a 26 inch penis which could be causing a lot of the issues this series.

"Is it because Ervin kneed him in the balls last game?"

Its because he is a flopper who if Ervin didn't make contact would have fallen to the floor. You don't stand up smiling after getting a call like that for no reason.
He also flails his head constantly for no contact, whines about not getting calls when he pushes players off him to get a shot.

He is talented but makes people lose respect for how much of an actor he is.
He should cop a huge fine for this one though, is the penalty $10,000???

Daft thing to do! His head wasn't in the game tonight though. I think the crowd got to him. Tigers needed him to shoot it a lot more than 5 times for the game!

Its his first finals series as the go to guy though, so hopefully he'll learn from this. He's got a lot of ability and I'm looking forward to see what he can do for the Boomers later this year.

Isnt a flop like that a tech foul? im pretty sure it is in the NBA, and should be if it isnt, its disgraceful, needs to be stamped out.

I think we saw tonight why guys like Gibson make Boomers teams and Goulding doesnt, Gibbo wasnt Michael Jordan or anything but played really well, contributed in many ways to his teams win, but Goulding was a negative imo.

Also why Ennis should be MVP and is way better than Goulding, look at Ennis's finals and compare them to Gouldings, Ennis is a way better and well rounded player any way, i dont think Goulding is even close, he is just a volume scorer, he is pretty damm good at it, but Ennis is a better rounded player, and a major reason his team is in the Grand Final.

Clearly not in the same category but what about Petrie flying to the floor after the slightest of contact from Goulding in the first half? That was an almighty flop, especially when you consider the difference in size/strength between those two.

#466439 Goulding scored 37 last game and got his team one win away from the grand final with a lot less help.

He didn't play well tonight, although 36ers did a great job running 2/3 players at him each time he made a move.

Do they take stats on Goulding drawing a double and kicking to a wide open player who misses a jump shot, because Goulding did that a lot tonight.

Goulding is a great player. Ennis may well be better, although a tough game isn't probably the time to downplay his season and how much he has improved over the last few years.

6ers should do a third umpire style video replay on possible flops. Show it a few times for the crowd before putting up flop or not a flop on the screen haha.

In a decades time I hope more than two things stick in people's memory about this semi final series. Sadly I think Ervin's attempt to knee Goulding in the groin (after tonight I have reasonable doubt about whether Ervin made contact at all in G2) and Goulding's falling (flopping?) to the ground after brushing past Petrie while running down the court.

Two of the best players in the NBL tainted their reputations these past few days and its a pity because they are great players who had momentary lapses of judgement. Just goes to show the pressure these guys must feel. I hope both players learn from their mistakes and become better people from their experiences.

I just dont understand what Goulding was thinking. Your one of the best pure shooters the country has produced in the last 15 years, let your game do the talking. Gaze, Maher, maybe not so much Heal, but the great shooters never flopped so blatantly, and for this, Goulding will find it hard next season to get as many 50/50 calls, the refs saw the replay in the timeout and were pissed. Goulding was immediatley regretting what he did, he knew it looked bad on the TV, dumb move by anotherwise great player. And when you look back on careers, things like these are what critics use to determine who was better then who.

Well done champ, you screwed the pooch on that one, bet he cant get out of Adleiade quick enough!

The way I see it is, you can either flop/fall to the ground or you can get up in the guys grill...whichever way you lean says a lot about your character, regardless of pressure.

Ervins actions were wrong but the guy is passionate and a fighter....Goulding on the other hand, well...

Quality import centre, Boomers PF, solid option in Walker, league's assist leader - yeah, that's a poor starting group. Import off the bench, Ballinger (15ish in SF1) too and the captain Greer.
He didn't play well tonight, although 36ers did a great job running 2/3 players at him each time he made a move.
Once the crowd rattled him, he spent half his time in the corner with Gibson waiting for him to move. Tigers at times double and triple teamed Schenscher even, plus anyone penetrating - that's what D does.

Goulding was booed in the first half because it would put him off his game. Crowds don't need much of an excuse to find someone to target. He was booed in the second half because he flopped. The crowd was very effective.

Perth fans will ride Adelaide too, and Adelaide fans will go after Perth players in G2. It's how it is.

"Goulding was booed in the first half because it would put him off his game. Crowds don't need much of an excuse to find someone to target. He was booed in the second half because he flopped. The crowd was very effective."

I think that about sums it up. I believe the initial boos were to put him off his game and to upset him as Melbourne rely on him for everything. As you note Isaac, the Melbourne team has a pile of individual talent. The claims of him head butting and doing things off the ball don't go down well, but I think that just added to the initial fire and once a few people started booing, the "snowball effect" happened.

As soon as he flopped after brushing Peach, well that's when the crowd respect evaporated, particularly when the replay showed it for what it was.

With professional sport being 99% mental, a crowd can do wonders for their team. I actually think Chris Goulding is a superbly talented player and considering the NBL players voting him the best shooter, obviously has a lot of respect from the players themselves. Talent is just 1%. There are plenty of former players in any sport who had the talent to be world champions, keeping the right mindset under all circumstances is the thing that makes world champions.

Isn't it traditional for the most parochial crowds to find someone to target and single them put for booing the entire game? You don't need a logical and valid excuse - just pick your target and boo him. That's your job as a fan.

Agree with the sentiments, Goulding has damaged his brand some what over both issues, it certainly clouds the severity of the groin strike impact, now people are asking did he milk that one too??

He is as others have pointed out a supreme athlete and Basketballer, he doesn't need to do these kinds of things.

Second to that he has shown some chinks in his armour by allowing the crowd to impact him, mental toughness and resilience are just as important in big games as is ability.

Evaporated? There was no respect.

I thought the shot of the night was Goulding sitting on the bench watching the replay and burying his head in the towel when he saw how bad it looked (his reaction is cut off the end of the Youtube video).

At least Petrie's flop was an exaggerated reaction to the contact, not that that looked too good on replay either.

Agree with Isaac's comments regarding the booing of Goulding. I don't get what people are complaining about, the home fans who pay for their tickets have every right to boo an opposition player to put them off their game. Goulding has always played with a bit of attitude and I think it's great to have players like him in the NBL but it does mean he is more likely to be targeted by opposition crowds, especially considering he is his teams best player also. Melbourne fans complaining about this probably don't understand considering there is minimal atmosphere at Tigers home games and a much less vocal crowd than Adelaide, which is one reason why Adelaide's home court provides a much bigger advantage.

Goulding unfortunately for Melbourne did let the crowd get to him. The best players will thrive on that sort of crowd treatment and play better (see Reggie Miller at MSG). However Goulding is still young and I am sure he will mature and deal with this sort of crowd treatment in the future

(shrugg)

Any Player who provokes passion through something that is perceived as harmful to the club, our chances of winning or disrepectful will usually get the sustained "Boo" the home crowd. We are passionate and have always thought of ourselves as an extra team member at home games.. not just spectators.

Thnking back a little:

Bradtke - starts perfoming amazingly well, becomes the Sixers fave Son then decided to take an offer at Melbourne. Result - Consistent Boo's every time he touched the ball to ensure he is aware of the level of fan disapproval.

Heal - Acts like a twat on court, makes the crowd vocal, he subsequently gives the crowd the middle finger on existing the game. Result - Consistent Boo's every time he touches the ball to ensure he is aware of the level of fan disapproval.

Goulding - Hams up and acts out every piece of contact against him, acts like a smart-arse, headbuts seemingly at-will, strives to ensure key opposition player gets suspended for a deciding finals game, keeps up the act of pretending to have been seriously injured and then uses it to blatently try to get another opposition player in trouble in what was the most blatant and shameful act of flopping I think has ever been encountered in NBL history and an act of flopping that would even be laughed at in Soccer Result - Consistent Boo's every time he touches the ball to ensure he is aware of the level of fan disapproval.

Agree or Disagree with fan's reactions - we need make no apologies for having a passionate voice that contributes to the intensity of the game in our own house.

While I agree with everything in the above post...Patty Mills' flop against Cairns during that brief period he was with the Tigers is far and away the worst flop in NBL history
