    If I'm coaching againt this team from here on out, I tell my guys to go Lambier and Mahorn on their asses. This is total BS.

    They scored too many points, so it's okay to try to hurt them.

    Nice moral structure.

    They fouled intentionally to try and score 100 points. Don't lecture me about moral structure.

    Do you have some sort of reason to think the fouls were dangerous?

    Agreed. What a jackass coach. Nice to see someone frustrate their plans for a change.

    What does that matter?

    Because unless I misinterpreted what was said, there was advocation of escalating from unsportsmanlike conduct to actively trying to physically hurt them.

    Poor babies. Sorry to offend your sensibilities, but if it was my team, for every intentional foul they made to get the ball back and try to rub in my guys' faces, they'd get it back double. There's a time when this kind of bullying needs to stop.

    The refs could start by calling intentional fouls. They've got that discretion. That would give Yates opponents free throws AND the ball back.

    I don't want to advocate violence. I think something else needs to be done to send a message here. Maybe teams refusing to play these guys. Or a coach pulling his team off the floor and forfeiting the rest of the game with Yates up 98-whatever.

    Either way, karma's a bitch, she's got game, and she's coming for these guys. Soon.

    Ding ding ding ding.

    Double ding ding ding ding. If these guys have such an awful inherently unfair advantage, quit playing 'em.
