    Really interesting. I wonder how much information, if any, gets passed back to the players / teams. Does someone call them up and say, hey, that was a good call, you really did travel...

    Wish I could believe this. I think the review system is designed to address conspiracy therories but its more for show than substance. You would have to be a complete moron to think that some unknown players gets the same kind of calls that Wade gets on a typical national broadcast.

    I wish they would make it a practice to see EVERY foul they call, not just the 6th ones.

    They seem to be admitting that they are not sure on a lot of calls. If you aren't sure, then don't call it. That is the kind of bs that created these Flop artists.
