Tim Duncan always trying to keep the refs down. :)

I don't think it'd be a fair fight. Although Crawford is pretty scrappy.;)

Maybe the other sports should take a look at this.....

Interesting the article said it was the first suspension of a ref since January. How many other sports suspend refs that frequently?

Joe Crawford is awful. Has been awful for a long time. (The ref, not the UK guard.)

Fans don't attend games to watch the ref!

Now if the NBA would only get rid of the rest of the refs and get replacements who actually will call the games straight up then maybe I will watch a game.

Just saw David Stern on ESPN talking about Crawford. The man is not happy. At all.

As you can imagine, there is much rejoicing in San Antonio over this news. Now if they could just convince Stern to replay or throw out the score of that game against the Mavs. ;)

There are a couple of other refs who are equally reviled by Spurs fans: Steve Javie and Dick Bavetta.

There are more refs reviled by Pacer fans, everyone of them who have ever refereed a Pacer playoff game.

And he's brothers with ump Jerry Crawford (and their dad was an ump too)

Listening to Stern yesterday, he intimated that Crawford would never officiate a game in the NBA again.

Stern didn't take it well when Crawford's first response to the suspension was "So do YOU want to fight?"
