Re(4): Players taking the money

"The expectation is that players give full effort" Are you kidding me? Since when the early 80's? Bennett there is no way they can prove a wild shot was intentional. I have seen players blow game point with a wild shot. Do officials investigate that? I mean the player could have fixed the point. The fact of the matter is that lock and feed clearly exsists and it is a strategy that players have used over the years. What about playoffs for 4th place? No boleto and won't effect the ITM%. Are those playoff points that are cleary dumped given the same look by the officals? I don't think so. The respect of the game has taken a downward spiral by both the players and fans. We know this trickles down from the top. Everything has become so lax with the sport its a tradgedy.
