If someone has to explain it to anyone then the fact they didn't get it means there is no point explaining it. Burtson fouled. It was hard and dangerous and intentional. He should be warned and not do it again and if he does he should wear the consequences. Simple. Conklins first elbow was hard but debatable if intent was to hit someone or protect the ball and swing with Hire over one of his shoulder who actually should have got a foul and the whole thing would have not got as far as it did, then Damo runs in hards as Conklin swings and cops it due to the height of elbow and Damos face unfortunately being the same. But the 2nd with Creek was hard elbow and swinging but this time outside of his personal cylinder which is the key issue, flailng and hard so warranted a penalty and warning of further incidents meaning further penalties. Obvious really and didn't look like it was an I'm going to hit Creeky or whoever behind me but that would be the same result every time int he future if this continues so fair call. Too risky not to force Conklin to reign it in and now Burston and anyone who is a repeat offender needs to have fair warning. Teys took a gamble to jump and made a poor choice the other week too but he is a clean player who knew that he had done the wrong thing and hasn't had a history of this nor likely int he future and he too should be warned if he does, again so should all players. Hard ball does not mean MMA and Wrestling enters this game and if that is what you think should happen then it will no longer be basketball and you need to look at MMA or AFL or where it is within the rules to bump and so on within the boundaries of the rules and if they go beyond those, boom a review and consequences. Whats the diff just diff rules for each game.
