while the fact that the refs consistently make bad calls that influence the outcome of our games is acceptable to you it is not to me.

I know the refs are human and they make mistakes, but it's the CONSISTENCY of bad calls against the Grizzlies in the crucial moments of games that really bothers me. Think of it this way, how many times have the refs made a bad call against our opponent down the stretch that cost them the game? I can't recall even a single event, yet it seems to happen the other way around nearly every week!

I know complaining won't change anything, but I'm not one to just sit back and accept blatant injustices.

The yahoo comments section after the game is funny. Even Suns fans said that it was a bad call by the refs. LOL.

The sad thing is that we lost against a team which had a significant portion of their fanbase which wants the team to tank. Lose-lose scenario.

what is it about the Grizz that just wont allow the refs to give us a break on calls like that? I mean an obvious goal tending was not called against the Clips. Even Reggie Miller on 2 separate occasions thought the Grizz got hosed on calls down the stretch.

Last night, Marc got pushed into Dudley late in the game but got called for the foul allowing Phoenix to be bailed out after we had forced the miss. And at the end, Dudley is falling down and is out of control but Mike is called for some foul with 3.3 secs left.

Lionel doenst show up the officials. He rarely argues that vigorously yet we contiually get screwed. Poor Haddadi can sneeze on somebody and the refs will blow a whistle yet Rudy can get molested at times and will not get a call. i wonder if the refs feel he whines too much or what.

Missed calls are part of the game I know and will continue to be such as the refs are human. But sometimes, it just seems way out of whack.

Its obvious that we have to beat teams by 5 or more points. 50/50 calls in late game situations on the road we just don't get em.

Did you see the last two possessions in the game against the Suns...The same ref made two bad calls that cost us the game...We should get revenge when teams come to our house and give all close calls to the Grizz since cheating is so prevalent for home teams we shouldn't get mad,,,just get even.

the foul call against mc down the stretch was a joke. the ref should be fined.

the goal-tending that was not called against laclipps...i have no words.

it is my hope that these quacks are being fined.

I just don't understand why the league NEVER issues formal, public appologies to the Grizzlies for these terrible calls. They seem to do it for other teams, so why not us? That's another reason I believe some games may be fixed ahead of time. Maybe they only apologize for legitimate MISTAKES.

Rudy Gay is about to get ejected. 3 fouls in a row - 1 technical. They're coming unglued

No, tonight was definitely on us. We just had an off night.

Although it did upset me how Rudy said ONE thing to the ref and he retaliates by giving him a T, and then calling two or three cheap personal fouls obviously in an attempt to 'get back at him'. That was really unprofessional and verging on abuse of power, IMO. Refs shouldn't start making emotional calls under any circumstances. Rudy obviously got him mad and he let it affect his officiating.

Hollins also got T'd up because the refs blatantly gave the Spurs the ball in front of the ref when they knocked it out of bounds. I saw people start leaving the game after that - out of there seats and to the car!

The officiating was fair enough, we got good calls. This wasn't Clippers, Suns game level.

I don't think it really made a difference today, but still, EVERY single 50/50 call went in favor of the Celtics and an absurd number of 'ticky-tack' fouls were called against the Grizzlies.

Yet another disappointment in the officiating department. All I ask for is that the GRIZZ get fair treatment once in awhile.

This thread really needs to be closed. The whining is useless and reeks of negativity.

You don't have to reply if you dont want to.

It's a FACT that the officiating has been terrible this year. We have a right to discuss it.

We would have lost tonight against the Cs with/without the refs.

Just didn't bring it tonight. We need Zbo back now.
