Lets add another one to the list.Please, note, i didnt bet it on it, but i will add it to the list of corruption i have seen.......

The tigers down 8, fouling with 1 min 30 left.......if u can find me an example in the history of NBA, NBL and Euro league where a team is intentionally fouling down 8 or so with 1 min 30 left.....conviniently pushing the second half over after it was pretty much gone.......Just find me an example and i will be quiet......

As the NBl season winds down, teams cant make it, why not get a bit of extra pocket money for your holidays.......tandy tried to do it, why not these guys?

Only 8 Rostos?

College ball that is FOR SURE foul territory.  Indiana was playing Purdue just a few days ago and there was 15 seconds left, Purdue up 13 points.  The line was Purdue -14.  Purdue inbounds, four of the Indiana playing just stand there, except for some bencher dude who fouls, Purdue drains two FTs and ends up winning by 15 and covering the spread.

ALL THE TIME.

This isnt college ball.........

I have never ever ever seen fouling down 8 with 1 min 30 left....NEVER in pro sports

I wouldn't say the NBL is a pro sport though.

The competition is lowsy and the players are garbage.

I have. Minnesota last year and Portland the year before.

I've commented on this before. In both instances to commentators said it was the coach trying to teach them about never given up.............. frankly I just the coach is a prick for doing that.

Hey I am not saying it isn't clean but sometime things just don't make sense to us. Alvin Gentry asking the Suns to run when they were up 23 in the last quarter. Any other coach would have said slow it down take your shots on 23 secs and play defense. Maybe he was worried GS would put up 6 x 3 pointers in a row

In the NBA, they will play pressure and try to force a turnover with 90 seconds to go, down 8.  If a foul occurs however, it will happen.  Intentional foul?  No, not down 8 with 90 seconds to go.  Force a turnover or missed shot and you can get it back within 5.

Down 8 with 30 seconds to go and I've seen fouling all the time.
