HoopIdea - ESPN's attempts to improve the NBA

Hey there my fellow Blazer's Edgers!

So True Hoop (via Henry Abbott and Royce Webb) have announced Hoop Idea - an engine for improving the NBA and the sport we all love. See the story here:

http://espn.go.com/blog/truehoop/post/_/id/36635/hoopidea-an-even-better-game

So they want you to e-mail

hoopidea@gmail.com or go to the facebook page http://www.facebook.com/yourNBAdestination

and tell them your ideas. Well I sent an e-mail, and I'm sure you can guess what it says:

1. Goaltending needs to be a reviewable call.

2. Scott Foster should never officiate a professional basketball game again. (Seriously, the guy has been implicated in the Donaghy gambling scandal, what the hell is he still doing with a job in this league?).

3. Half court refs shouldn't make calls they can't see. (I don't know how you enforce that, but I'm bitter so I put it anyway)

Yes, yes, I know, the Blazers had every chance to win this game before and after the Goaltending Call Heard 'Round the World, but the fact is, the game would have most likely ended then and there.

So I encourage everyone to write into this HoopIdea with similar points. This was some horseplop and the fact that nothing will be done about it is despicable!

Thanks for reading,

Alex
