And he's got the legs of a 24 year old...
Might be worth a look in deeper leagues.

I remember when Crawford challenged Tim Duncan to a fight. The look of shock and surprise on Duncan's face is classic.

Couple that with the fact that NBA refs seem to be attaching the same significance to their presence as most MLB umpires (Joe West comes to mind as a good comp for Joey Crawford) and youve got a situation where they cant be trusted and are trying to make the games about themselves. This guys the prime example of the latter, I honestly believe he thinks people buy tickets to watch him call a game.

Ex-con/ex-referee Tim Donaghy confirmed what folks in Dallas have long suspected: NBA executives and officials are biased against Mavericks owner Mark Cuban.
Donaghy, who made an appearance on ESPN 103.3’s Galloway and Co. to promote his book “Personal Foul,” said that bias cost the Mavericks games and played a significant role in their collapse after taking a 2-0 lead in the 2006 Finals.
“I think there was numerous games,” Donaghy said. “Obviously Mark was very outspoken in regard to the referees. Referees have personal vendettas that they take out on certain players, coaches and owners. Mark was certainly one of those people.”
Donaghy claimed that Danny Crawford bragged that the Mavericks rarely won playoff games that he officiated, information Donaghy used to place bets against the Mavs. The Mavs have lost 15 of their last 16 playoffs game that Crawford worked.
If Donaghy can be believed, there were two major officiating factors in the controversial Finals collapse that was fueled by Dwyane Wade free throws. He said referees are trained to favor teams that are down in playoff series. And then there’s the anti-Cuban bias.
“It had been told to me behind the scenes that they were actually happy in the NBA office when Dallas was knocked out from the playoffs,” Donaghy said, “because it was less complaints from Mark, it was less e-mails from Mark and it was less work that they had to do.”
Of course, Cuban surely fired off a few e-mails after the Finals.
Cuban’s e-mail response to Donaghy’s comments on Thursday: "My position hasn't changed. But I've already paid for stating it, so I'm not going to repeat it.

joe crawford is a joke and is quick to turn on an entire team because he took an altercation with one of the teams players personal...it's amazing that he still has a job in the nba with his blatant antics. kobe got a technical from him in the 4th quarter and i knew for a fact that every 50/50 call was going against the lakers after that. the clip posted shows that it was obviously a charge, and even before the call was made, i guaranteed the people i watched the game with that crawford was guna call it blocking. he made maybe 5-6 questionable calls against the lakers down the stretch. his agenda becomes painfully obvious when he feels like he has to prove a point.
Couldn't agree more, even before the Tim Duncan incident (which made me lose all respect for him, it was the ultimate abuse of power structure) I swear every time I saw this guy on TV he just set off the a$s-hole alarm in my head, he gave me douche chills like who the hell does this bald little bully think he is!? I used to referee high-level hockey games for the state of NJ while I was in college (it was $100/hr cash ) and even the guys doing that had less bias and showed 1000x more restraint than this guy does and he's supposed to be one of the most respected refs in one of the largest leagues in the world. Not sure if you guys ever read the piece Y! Sports (I think Wojnarowski) did about him a year or so after the Duncan incident and they found out all he had to do after the Duncan thing was take an anger management class. If that was Duncan trying to fight Crawford you better believe he would've been suspended for weeks, and that ridiculous logic is one of the few things I really hate about Stern's NBA. It's as close to the 3rd Reich as any professional sports operation can be - question the fuhrer or his SS and you'll be sorry.
PS - Sorry if this is hard to follow haha it took me 15 minutes to write since I was doing 10 other things at once.
