    Just announced on ESPN. He's the guy who tossed Tim Duncan. Crawford won't referee the rest of the season or in the playoffs.

    Just for ejecting Duncan? The new best-seller: The Duncan Rules.

    Are Joey and Danny Crawford related?

    Too bad he wasn't in WWE. Slow counts and missing blatant rulebreaking gets you a permanent job.

    Well, if Crawford did challenge Duncan to a fight, as Duncan reported after the game, the suspension seems legit.

    Damn, I didn't think that refs would get nailed for stuff like this. Is Steve Jaffe next on Stern's shit list?

    Methinks it was for challenging Duncan to a fight.

    Hey, Danny Davis made a nice living that way. And I dunno about a suspension just over things said in the heat of the moment (cue Asia video).

    Wow. He was wrong for the toss. But, I think he got suspended more for what happened after/before the toss.

    There are bad T's everyday in the NBA.
  10. About. Damn. Time.
    Bud Selig, please take note.

    Joey Crawford lost his damn mind. Stern and company helped him find it.

    Joe West would have been suspended every season.
