If you're going to show me Digger Phelps whining like a biatch, your headline should be about Digger Phelps whining like a biatch, assmitter.

Can somebody please give me the secret to turing off autoplay on ESPN videos, permanently forever?  I turn it off every time one of their stupid videos starts and every time I return to ESPN, a new video autoplays. I know I am pretty stupid, but it really shouldn't be this difficult.

funk_soul_bubby: Better link with video.


Thank you!  Typically EatShiatPn link shows analysts (emphasis on the Anal) talking about something they should show.

i do it by not clicking on their farked up pages most times. Or if i do feel i have to, it's straight to the stop button.  or, have an account.  Don't know if it really works because I don't have one.

The initial dead ball technical foul on Richmond for the push seemed reasonable. I mean you have to call something there. The Richmond player was dumber than dirt.

The foul on the 3-pt from half court being in the process, was a bad call. The rest kinda followed from that.

Agree, the shove tech was the right call. The ball was already trough the basket when he shoved the player.
Giving Charlotte 3 fouls shouts was stupid.

If you create an account with them, you can change the settings for autoplay permanently. You can also filter the front page news stories to match your interests

The thing I took away from that is there are now 4 post-season basketball tournaments. What the hell, college basketball? Is anyone actually watching the CIT or CBI?

Only if their team is in it.

This.

But Digger was right about one thing:  Those refs should be banned from all tourney play.  Calling that foul in the act of shooting was horrendous.

And they T'd the coach up a little too quick on the second one as well.

The front page filtering doesn't go far enough.  I'd love an option to mute all scores and stories related to the NBA, as if they don't even exist.

I assume you mean the 2nd halfcourt shot, the one that led to the coach getting ejected.  It looks like one of those "at game speed" calls, personally.  The push is obvious; the coach getting ejected probably is obvious to those who can transcribe what he said to the refs.  Why he freaked about them choosing to have Henry shoot the first technical instead of the guy who got fouled is beyond me, but it seems like that's what just snowballed into coach rage.

Well, he may be right, but there's a reason that the A-10 is a very poor man's Big East.

\all that being said, yay Niners!

You're an idiot

From the replay, it actually looked like the guy was taking a step to attempt a long shot (well, draw the foul is more like it).

That call is not as bad as some make it seem.

No autoplay here.  Flashblock FTW.
