There was a supposed noncall on Marcio Lassiter. Alaska representative Dickie Bachmann complained at once because he was right there. When the play was reviewed, it was clear that the referee’s view was blocked and so he failed to see if there was a foul or not,” Marcial related.Marcial said this system considerably improved the performance of the referees and somehow made all the teams appreciate calls or non calls—an integral part of commissioner Chito Narvasa’s mission to make officiating understandable to fans as they are to game officials and coaches.Narvasa likewise expressed satisfaction for the above-par performance of the PBA’s pool of 16 referees in the ongoing Governors’ CupHe said none of them have been suspended or fined so far and he’s looking to cut the pool to retain the higher-grade referees during the semifinals of the season-ending third conference. “The cameras are really a huge factor during games,” said Marcial. “Technical officials can monitor the entire game well and make accurate judgments.”The technical committee reviews a referee’s performance after every game. This serves as basis in determining the referee’s rating or grade level.“When a referee performs badly in consecutive games, he or she can be suspended or meted out stiff penalties,” added Marcial.But a referee can’t always be suspended or fined because of wrong calls.The technical committee looks at a referee’s position when a missed or wrong call takes place before making any decision.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READlast_img read more

Nash Racela throws shade at ‘perfectly officiated ball game’

I don’t really question that and I’m happy our players did their best and gave ourselves a chance.”ADVERTISEMENT And even though Racela took a different approach Friday after TNT’s 106-103 loss to Ginebra in game 3 of the PBA Governors’ Cup semifinals, his message was still filled with resentment.READ: Ginebra nears finals, nips TNT in game 3FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“Obviously, it was a perfectly officiated ball game, you can’t really question the obvious,” said Racela with a straight face but with a heavy tone of sarcasm after the KaTropa moved on the brink of elimination in the semis.Racela was called with a technical foul in the second quarter when his import Glen Rice Jr. got into several scuffles with Ginebra rookie Kevin Ferrer.

They’ll certainly find interest in Irving, but it may be challenging to find comparable talent in return.That’s where Rose comes in. If healthy, Rose is a dynamic scorer capable of taking over a game, and paired with LeBron James, he could be even more dangerous. Not long after reports surfaced of Rose’s agreement, James posted a message on Twitter with five rose emojis followed by, “Let’s Rock G!!”Rose drew interest from other teams. He met with Cleveland’s front office on Monday, when the team promoted Koby Altman to be its full-time general manger after he served as the interim GM since mid-June.Rose just completed his eighth since being drafted first overall by Chicago in 2008. He was named the league’s MVP in 2011 while with the Bulls. Rose sat out the entire 2012-13 season following knee surgery.Because the Cavaliers are so far over the salary cap, they could only offer Rose a one-year deal. But the possibility of playing alongside James, who can become a free agent next summer, and to contend for a title will offset any financial concerns for Rose.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Lacson: SEA Games fund put in foundation like ‘Napoles case’last_img read more
