NBL needs to act on flopping
So what happened? I thought the NBL was going to stamp this out?
It's sad, Goulding was probably the best player on the court against Perth, and spoilt it with his award-winning flops.
Then on Saturday night, Oglivy spent more time on his back flopping than on his feet. It was laughable.
(To be fair though, I think in one of those cases he was moving forward and slipped, but the ref still called the foul.)
Then obviously Redhage decided he'd have some too and just randomly threw himself to the floor. It was cringeworthy.
I think that the refs need to start looking at the replays, maybe introduce a "4th ref" system like other sports. It's so frustrating as a fan, when the replay is shown on the big screen and the flopping is so blatantly obvious.
I gotta say, I thought the MU v Cats was a great game, even though we lost.
Despite the massive win, Saturday night's game was marred by poor reffing. It just goes to show that its not ALL about the result.
