So its statistically known that fouls go up during the post season. A simple matter of players playing harder and more intensely. That said, a certain amount of roughness is typically tolerated. The let em play mentality. This post season I haven't really seen much 'let em play' thinking. I've heard folks comment that its soft refs getting softer.
One trend that seems pretty bizarre to me is that I feel like there are nearly as many offensive foul calls as defensive in this post season. Has anyone else noticed this?
