Getting off on the technicals
The NBA has a strict policy on flagrant fouls, if a player accumulates 16 or more flagrant fouls over the course of the season they automatically have to serve a one game suspension (Sports Illustrated). So why is it that Rasheed Wallace of the Detroit Pistons has gathered 16 flagrant fouls and has not served his suspension. Well, according to Vice President of the NBA, Tim Frank, two of the fouls have been rescinded. This is idiocracy, if a player is called for a flagrant foul it should stick and not be rescinded, especially if the player has over 10 in a season. This shows that the player is playing far to aggressive, which is not all bad, but when it endangers other players health and careers they need to be taught a lesson.
According to the NBA rule book a flagrant foul "is unnecessary and excessive contact committed by a player against an opponent." (NBA) If players are accumulating more then 16 of these it seems like they are out for more then a game of basketball, they are out for blood. Any type of sport brings out the adrenaline and passion of an athlete but it needs to be controlled so as to not hurt others. Whatever happens to Rasheed or any other player that gets these needs to be disciplined and be let off on a technicality of review.
