vs. MIN: Opponent Game Thread Highlights

March 16, 2012
tags: ,

Today’s Opponent Game Thread host: Canis Hoopus.

2 hours of non-stop complaining about the officiating + a torrent of insults directed at Paul Millsap because the home team’s announcer (Matt Harpring) says more good things about him than Kevin Love + Mormon comments = Canis Hoopus game thread.

FUCK YOU JAZZ, SHOWING RICKY INJURY

They are sick people.

someone is screaming 3 seconds every time the wolves pass into the post

and are really excited about it
by domesticllama on Mar 16, 2012 9:35 AM CST

I’m not sure they’ve invented double digits in Utah yet.
by Cynical Jason on Mar 16, 2012 9:35 AM CST

then how do they tally up all their wives

That’s why they don’t have a problem with polygamy.
They can’t count that high.

there should be a law against utah basketball
by CoffeeJanitor on Mar 16, 2012 9:42 AM CST

At least when Wolves teams suck, it’s usually funny in a macabre way
But this mediocre jazz team is about as entertaining as being used as an archery target.

The Jazz style of basketball is about as popular as a snake in a sleeping bag
by ArchAngel79 on Mar 16, 2012 9:51 AM CST

Think it’s a state law
by Rodman99 on Mar 16, 2012 9:52 AM CST

The rebounding differential is bananas.
-15?!?!?!?!?!
by PDGirl on Mar 16, 2012 10:09 AM CST

Everything is dropping right into a Jazz player’s hands. It’s stupid.
by Cynical Jason on Mar 16, 2012 10:11 AM CST


Two quick bullshit fouls on Pek.
by Cynical Jason on Mar 16, 2012 10:35 AM CST

Wow, refs are completely one-sided on blocking/charging calls. Every one of them going against us
by ArchAngel79 on Mar 16, 2012 10:35 AM CST

someone needs to remind the refs that we’re the better team and are supposed to get the call bias

ARE YOU SHITTING ME
by AndrePatterson on Mar 16, 2012 10:36 AM CST

I don’t care if we were up 10.
Officiating has been fucking terrible.
by Boss10 on Mar 16, 2012 10:40 AM CST

We are getting hosed by the refs
by ArchAngel79 on Mar 16, 2012 10:39 AM CST

by Malastare on Mar 16, 2012 10:51 AM CST

by Killboard on Mar 16, 2012 11:09 AM CST

we would be winning right now if this game was called correctly
by ballllin on Mar 16, 2012 11:11 AM CST


Of course, they don’t call the foul on Hayward . . .
by Cynical Jason on Mar 16, 2012 11:16 AM CST

Jazz hire there own ref’s
by Stay classy, Joe. on Mar 16, 2012 11:31 AM CST

Jazz got lucky, Love have a sprained thumb.
by abcnerdd on Mar 16, 2012 11:31 AM CST

Jazz got refs paid off
by Grape Drank on Mar 16, 2012 11:31 AM CST

we will give you two 14 year old wives apeice just make sure we win
by holymackerel on Mar 16, 2012 11:34 AM CST

We got killed by the refs tonight
Really believe we were the best team out there
by Bob Mcflallergy on Mar 16, 2012 11:32 AM CST

I want Johnson’s two blocks back
Those are two of the worst calls I have seen all year. The homer Utah announcers said that Johnson’s block was clearly goaltending because the ball was clearly on the way up. What?!?!?!?!
by xraraavis on Mar 16, 2012 11:49 AM CST

Physics is a dark art in Utah….
NBA rules are even more esoteric….
by Dogpile on Mar 16, 2012 11:50 AM CST

Joey Crawford is a mormon.
by AndrePatterson on Mar 16, 2012 11:54 AM CST

For the record: Minnesota 33 FTAs; Utah 27 FTAs.

    Got to agree w/ xraraavis up there on the goaltending call. Harpring did say that, which makes you wonder if he ever played IN THIS LEAGUE. Absolutely wasn’t goaltending.

    Wonderful wonderful post, Moni. I laughed all the way through my breakfast.

    I love these posts, always a good laugh. And in regards to the ref bitching, apparently its something they do often. A member in the post game thread over there actually complained about how much complaining the other members do about refs every game. My motto is, if you have more FTA’s, then you can’t really bitch about the refs.

      I’ve been doing OGT for a couple of years and I’ve never seen them this bad (or so many Mormon comments). Canis Hoopus’ threads have generally been good reads in the past. Thanks for reading :)

    I have a theory: basketball fans tend to get really pissed off at refs shortly after they begin watching NBA games. I’ve been a basketball fan all my life, but only started watching consistently after league pass (because I am Brazilian). At first, I’d totally overreact to the refs bad calls against the Jazz, and only later got to realize they actually call it pretty even for the most part.

    Because the Wolves sucked so much for so long, I guess those people are barely watching their first basketball games cheering for one of the teams in years. When they sucked, only the most seasoned fans were on the threads.

      Good theory. This could very well be the case, or the commenters might all be a bunch of kids.
