Is there a form I can fill out and submit for these suggestions. Perhaps one with dal-mavs company letterhead. I have a fax machine at home I haven't used in a while

Seriously though, yes! These are like 7ft guys with size 18 shoes trying to tiptoe around the line. Its absurd.

My pet peeve: players have been allowed to do a one dribble catch. Pick the ball up. And then dribble again. Its become ubiquitous because they NEVER call it anymore, kind of like palming the ball. But it is a "dribble". Its not a catch. You see it a lot when a player is falling to the ground rebounding the ball, on errant outlet or post/re-post passes and also in the small space near the sidelines.

Fax it to Commissioner David Stern. And definitely use the Mavs letterhead.

Yeah, given the way the game is moving farther & farther from the hoop, there should definitely be more space in the corners... And I'm kinda warming up to the 4-point line in Big-3. I mean, why not? If you can hit a shot from there, then it should count extra. Imagine the high stakes buzzer beater highlights!

5 from beyond halfcourt.

Also install a trampoline under the basket https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ouXw328WYI

I was almost about to suggest 5 from beyond half court... And, damn, I totally forgot about SlamBall!

I have a fair and honest question for you

As a mod what makes it right to use the term bitch towards someone in a post as opposed to someone saying you need therapy?


I'm asking this question because I was banned briefly for using the term therapy and yet the word bitch was used without a ban.

Do you find that to be fair treatment?

I'm just curious because I've hated many debates with a few posters on here and even though we may not agree with each I've never used profanity towards anyone or called them out their name

Now I know all forums have rules but it just seems like unfair practice to ban someone over using the term therapy and then not banning someone for saying bitch

I'm just trying to find some logic behind this forums policy

I didn't ban you, so I can't speak to that. For me it would be less about language used or one-off insults and more about a pattern of behavior -- if you're doing nothing but antagonizing people, then you might get put in timeout.

The rules around here are simple: respect our house or we'll show you the door... The more we get complaints about a particular poster, the less tolerance we have for their behavior (and just to be clear, people have been complaining about you).

Honestly that seems pretty petti if you ask me

I have at no time disrespected anyone on here

But your telling me if specific people don't like my opinions or if they deem it annoying then I'm in danger of getting banned.

Yet a guy can blatantly call another poster a bitch it's more acceptable.

On the flip side of that if I don't agree with a poster or I find a poster annoying I just don't respond to them

But I guess some people can be easily be upset on a sports message board than opposed to others

Have a great day sir

Thanks for great feedback on how the forums operate towards forum rules
