Bulls disagree with Rondo decision

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks

Not surprisingly, the Bulls didn't agree with the NBA's decision on Wednesday not to upgrade Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo's hard foul on Bulls center Brad Miller to a flagrant foul.

"I think definitely it was a flagrant foul," Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro said. "I mean, I just think when a guy gets hit in his mouth and gets 10 stitches... I saw Dwyane Wade's flagrant foul in Atlanta [Wednesday] night and I didn't think that was a flagrant foul. It barely seemed like he hit the guy.

"You can't worry about that. You have to get ready to play the game and, hopefully, the officiating is consistent for both sides. That's all we're looking for as coaches, consistency."

AT FIRST I DISMISSED THE FLAGRANT FOUL, BUT IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT RONDO
DID WITH HIS HAND AFTER IT WAS IN THE MOUTH OF BRAD MILLER, YOU WILL
SEE HE TRIED TO DISRUPT MILLER'S SHOT BY COMING ACROSS HIS FACE,
IT WAS A VERY DELIBERATE ACT, RONDO KNEW THIS WAS THE ONLY WAY TO
CAUSE MILLER TO MISS THE SHOT, NOW THE REFS CAN'T REVIEW THE FOUL,
AND WITH EVERYTHING HAPPENING IN REAL TIME AND NOT SLOW MOTION,
THIS SITUATION IS VERY HARD TO ACCESS PROPERLY!
NOW IN THE TRIPLE OVERTIME GAME RONDO THROWS AN ELBOW AT KIRK, I
BELIEVE MR. RONDO WILL MISS GAME 7!
STAY TUNED!

That was a great game!!! I've been unemployed since Janurary 2009,and has not been feeling well, But to see the Bulls fight and not give up, really help me during this very difficult time in my live. I think Rondo is getting away with way too much physical play! I hope that take a serious look had his flagrant foul on Hindrich. He deserves to sit at least a game. Although I think the Bulls will win with or without hin playing in the 7th game. The game really took me away from dwelling on my personal issues. GO BULLS!
