Labor union getting involved in the "Sheed Rule"

by | Nov 9, 2006 | 1 comment

Billy Hunter of the Players Union is talking about the new tech rule.

With technical foul calls nearly doubled compared to the same point last season, union director Billy Hunter wants commissioner David Stern to lighten up on the NBA’s crackdown on complaining or he might even seek legal action against the league.

“I think what may ultimately happen if it continues to occur is we will probably be compelled to bring an unfair labor practice action or something,” Hunter told The Associated Press. “Try to seek some relief, at least to have the issue either heard or at least elevated so that it gets a lot more public attention than it’s currently getting.”

I guess Mr. Hunter doesn’t know about the Petition yet.

    I am happy to see someone wants to be something about it. The techs can change a players game and some are called for but others are not. I think the refs are taking this rule to extreme.
