As of 5:32 this afternoon Sheed was officially suspended for Sundays game against the Clippers. Detroit Pistons forward Rasheed Wallace has received an automatic one game suspension without pay after receiving his 16th technical of the 2006-07 season, it was announced today by Stu Jackson, NBA Executive Vice President Basketball Operations.
A player or coach receives an automatic one-game suspension after receiving his 16th technical foul. Every other technical foul beyond 16 (18, 20, 22, ect.) will also result in a one-game suspension without pay. —NBA.com.
I’ve gotta say I’m really relived that Sheeds suspension came on one of the three games against below .500 teams on this road trip. I just hope that he doesn’t get two techs in the next 3 games, or that means another suspension for either the Suns or Mavericks game. I’m gonna start praying tonight cause if that happens, my TV is going to be broken from me throwing my remote control at it.
I agree I am happy as are most pistons fan that sheeds out for a team under 500, however do count out those team either. Was the tech really for yelling hte ball don;t lie?
Anyway got to love sheed for not letting this get to him, I as well as most fans thought this day would have come to us sooner. I am not sure how he stayed away form this for so long with the new stupid rule. As well he is the first player to be effected by this rule so now you well me was it meant for him or not. Yes it was
NBA is stupid, Stu Jackson and David Stern are as moronic as the 2 dingbats sitting in the White House. League is now full of ME first thugs and Floppers like Wade and Ginobilli. This is why the USA team suck against the world.
It’s OK for a nut like Artest to beat a woman who is not even his wife to say sorry and come back and play. But it’s a mortal sin for an emotional team player like Sheed to even “roll his eyes the wrong way”
“It don’t matter to me,” Wallace said of the fine he’ll draw. “They think suspending me one game, I’m losing all this money and this and that. Money ain’t nothing to me for the simple fact I wasn’t born with it. Just as fast as you get money, you can lose money. Money’s not going to change my character, money’s not going to change the person I am.”
This is why people love Sheed!
he joey d
just curious.. who exactly are you? do you have a blog of your own also? what is it? and im not trying to be sarcastic, just curious!
for real f@#k david stern! even more for his like you said 11:27 creation of offensive driven flopping bitches and the idea that people dont want to see a defensive game. that 2004 playoff run was the best playoffs in the last 10 years at least from the confrence finals on. and he killed that shit. and if anything who doesnt want to see more passionate loud players, sheed is about the only i ever really get to hear watching games on tv.
Is the game today being broadcast on TV?
Does anyone know where someone outside of Michigan can watch this game? I don’t see it listed on League Pass…
nopeee the next game on tv isnt until we play dallas
:[ toooooo longggg
they are going to have it taped at 7 on mytv20.
Sheed Deserves the suspension….pistons don’t need sheed!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nat take all the time you need, you ahve a good person to step in while you are a way. We are all hoping everything is goiing well for you. Again thank you for all you do for us.
4:12 you could not be more wrong, sheed is the backbone of the pistons. the reason they have a recent championship and if you dont know that then you have a mentally retarded basketball IQ. He is losing it to age but he is the best overall player in the nba.
