Please Reinstate Joey Crawford

(Boulder-CO) It has been brought to my attention by David Friedman of 20 Second Timeout that Joey Crawford has been suspended indefinitely by Commissioner David Stern for the remainder of this season, including the 2007 playoffs. For those of you living in a cave, Joey Crawford ejected San Antonio's Tim Duncan for enjoying himself on the bench during their most recent match-up with the Dallas Mavericks. Duncan appeared to be laughing it up with Frenchy guard Tony Parker when crazy Crawford gave him his second technical and the early shower.

What amazes me about this story is Tim Duncan’s report that Crawford actually at one point asked the 6’11” power forward if he wanted to “fight” him after ejecting him from the game!

Is Joey Crazy? The answer is yes, crazy like a fox! It’s just too bad that he won’t be able to referee any of the Nuggets and Spurs’ first round playoff series games while continuing his tyrannical bias against Tim Duncan and the Spurs. Lord knows that the Nuggets could have used him!
