I was at the game last night. The celtics all acted like jerks and refused to sign autographs for their fans. Throught and after the game all the hawks fans chanted boston sucks and paul pierce sucks. A classic.

and rondo just lied to the press saying he didn't do it on purpose... what a jerk he is

yeah artest is artest yet he clearly bumped the ref on purpose. what an idiot

Troll? Really? Are you comparing a blatant elbow to someones head and a slight chest bump?

Want to get my facts straight before I respond, if you are actually comparing the 2.

As a Boston fan I can fully admit that Rondo's second biggest flaw, besides his jumper, is his attitude. I love the guy, want him on my team for sure, but I just wish he could control himself a bit better in certain situations, especially critical ones like the playoffs.

And the other truth here in that Rondo/Boston haters need to simmer down. Yes, Rondo "chest bumped" the ref, and it was out of line and he should get whatever punishment he gets, but let's not make it out like he injured the guy or did anything even remotely close to what Earth Wind & Fire or whatever the hell Artest's new name is....it wasn't smart, but it wasn't anything flagrant.

1. Why does everyone love the word troll? how many times do you type it a day? troller, trolling, troll... its really not that fun to type why is there such an obsession? ha

2. back on topic. i dont think what rondo did is anywhere close to the severity of artests elbow to kill someone. but in itself any contact with a ref is pretty severe and any 'intentional' contact is severe. yes he didn't punch the ref in the face but the no contact rule is one of the biggest no no s in the sport.

my whole point is artest intentionally threw an elbow and tried to play if off as an accident or unintentional. and millions of people were up in arms saying just admit it and get on with it. now rondo clearly and intentionally showed up the ref and chest bumped him and what does he do? he makes the same excuse that artest did saying that it was an accident and unintentional... that is the same exact thing artest did and i think rondo should be trashed for it too. yes the 'power' and viciousness was different but it is a very similar situation in which rondo is also lying to the medias face... just be a man and accept what you did. don't be a little prima dona and act like you didn't do anything wrong...

im not saying the two things are a clear comparison. but artest intentionally did something to a player - lied about it and got punished. rondo intentionally did something to a ref - lied about it and needs to be punished...
