In response to TommyRules' comment:
Flopping is not just on charge/block calls.
It is offensive players driving through the lane and as soon as they get touched, they throw their head back (Paul Pierce) like they were assaulted.
Flopping can be when someone falsl down from minimal conduct.
Flailing of the arms can also be flopping.
Flopping has made game nuch harder for referees.
Why wouldn't people want the league to have their back and help them after the fact with flopping.
Once the flops start getting to $30,000 per occurance, then the acting/flopping will change big time.
Thanks for rehashing what I said about 10 mins ago - flopping has been around since long before the Bad Boys of Detroit. Bill Laimbeer was one of the true "artists" of the flop.
It is harder for the refs to call because it is not called properly.
IF they set the tone at the beginning of the game, the flopping would stop DURING THE GAME. Never having the played any sport yourself, you wouldn't get that, and if you think you know more about this subject than me, then you are crazy!!
