Default Bogut fined...thats it?

http://www.nba.com/news/bogut_070314.html

Good, he was being an ass all night.

What is more intresting here is that he recieved just a fine. Watch these two videos:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRFwQ6dIeJ4

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RRuHXkWpdJ0

So Bogut is fined for a) giving the home crowd the finger b) elbowing Chris Bosh (unnatural act no?) and c) shoving Bosh at the end of a clear loss. Bosh even complained about him after the game and said that he played dirty all game and that, he threw multiple unneccessary elbows at him. So where is the suspension in this case? I mean, these days you get suspended for your follow through, shouldn't Bogut also be suspended?

Are you going to tell me that Kobe could come away from ALL that with just a fine? He is clearly being overly scrutinzed by the league and this is just another example of it. Also keep in mind that Bosh actually complained about him while Jaric and Ginobili acknowledged Kobe's elbows as inadvertant, and did not think he should have been suspended.

Can we get some consistency here?

I have to agree, the elbow wasn't such a big deal but that push was flagrant dirty play, certainly not better than Bryant's elbows. Consistency is lacking.

I knew this was a tread by a raps fan before clicking it.

Bogut's shove wasn't that bad. You see stuff like that happen all the time. His elbow wasn't very nice but it wasn't a huge issue. The finger wasn't cool. Could've gotten a 1 game suspension but I guess that's up to the Bucks org.

You're sounding like Kendall Gill anno 1995. Pampered whiner.

If Kobe did that he'd be gone for a week.

I don't know about yall but during the early 90's and late 80's (although I didn't see much of the late 80s) you'd see people fighting, throwing elbows, pushing around and people wouldnt get fined, wouldnt get thrown out of the game either. No suspensions. These guys played hard an a little dirty. Especiallywhen they were losing games.

You'd see clotheslinrs every other game. Pushing guys late in games too.

Now I understand Raps and Lakers fans getting kind of emotional, but remeber Kobe hasa history of elbowing people. They're trying to get a message through I guess. agree they have to be consistent, but don't cry over such pansy fouls.

If the elbow had made contact with Bosh's head and the league did not suspend him, then I would say you have a case to gripe. In Kobe's case, he has been suspended for making contact to the head. Am I wrong?

The Raptor fans do whine a lot but in this case Fatal has a point. That shove was very bad, Bosh couldn't see it coming and Bogut didn't even pretend to be going after the ball, he just pushed him from behind, and Bosh could have fallen and hurt himself. How is it any better than one of Bryant's elbows?

You don't have to be a raptors' fan to understand how much worse this play was from what Kobe has been receiving... Kobe unintentionally hit somebody and got a suspension... Bogut, first intentionally elbowed Bosh (obviously there was intent to injure), then later on, while Bosh is unbalanced, he pushes him towards the baseline...

in both cases, there was an intent to injure, I don't care if anybody thinks that is blowing it out of proportion or not, there was intent to injure... and to top it off, he flips off his own fan... and that for some reason, does not warrant a suspension...

Default Re: Bogut fined...thats it?

Everyone knows that Bogut should not be suspended BUT when you consider what Kobe has been suspended for in the last month, then Bogut should be suspended if the league is going to remain consistent disciplining players. If Kobe hadn't been suspended TWICE for inadvertant elbows then this thread wouldn't exist. But since a precedent has been set, why has Bogut not been suspended for something worse than Kobe's elbows? Consistency is all people are asking for...

Bogut's an ass. Props to TJ for sticking up fro his teammate. I appreciate that. And because of so, I am slowly becoming a Raptors fan.
