Is anyone fed up with the Technical Fouls that Sheed and Rip are accumulating faster than the National Debt? Are the Techincal calls justifiable, or are they just some referees trying to insure some pistons players miss enough games to impact the playoffs? Is it realistic to empower Rasheed and now Rip to man up take the call and move on? How much are these ticky tack calls impacting the play of the Pistons? Is it just me, or does every year the players seem to hit the fatigue wall right before the post-season? With Sheed having to sit out on every other tech received, this will undoubtedly affect us going into the home stretch. Rip Hamiliton is only a sneeze away from being in the same predicament, I am at a standstill as to what (if anything)that can be done from a coaching perspective. We have been going deep into the playoffs for the past 5 years or so, with the same core players, how much impact does this have on post-season performance (chicago did it, lakers did it, maybe they changed a few core palyers in between, not sure). Hopefully by the pre-season, I think the tech foul situation resets, whatever players that are fatigue, suffering from malaise, i.e. will pick up their game and the techs will slow down which I doubt seriously.
