Too Tall Tisdale

A foul? Yes. An intentional foul? Hardly. The guy didn't even fall over. The refs I suppose don't make their determination on the basis of whether the fouled player could have been hurt. The driving question is whether the fouler was making an attempt to go for the ball. I would argue that with Tisdale, awkward as he is at times, you can never really know. We probably would have lost the game anyway. But this predetermined the outcome. I walked away from the TV and didn't watch the closing seconds.
