Basketball has the worst officiating in all of sports. Can't compare it. Wasn't letting them play since Crab didn't get a chance to play.
No, of course not, but unless he's being tackled, bound and gagged and robbed at gunpoint, no referee is going to call anything in that situation. It doesn't make it right, but would you consider what happened there 'letting them play'? It's like holding the ball for the last shot of a basketball game, and you're down by 1. You better make that shot, because the refs are putting thier whistles away.
Earlier in the day I was thinking wouldn't it be cool if Destiny's Child came out. Wonder if this means a reunion tour (if it hasn't been announced already) is gearing up.
Wasn't even borderline. Any more holding and that DB would have looked like he was "blocking" on the intentional safety play.
