NBA: Stop the Flop sign now

We petition the NBA to accept the addition of:

A FLOPPING PENALTY

We demand that the NBA institute a penalty for diving, flopping, faking, feigning, play-acting, theatrics, simulation, or by whatever other term it is known.

Flopping negatively affects fan interest. It adds delays to the game. At its worst, it determines the outcomes of games.

Sports such as hockey and soccer penalize flopping and we feel the NBA should follow suit.

We, the undersigned, petition the NBA to begin taking administrative steps to eliminate this lowly act of cheating which makes a mockery of the game, its officials and its fans.

Attached is a link for those who are unaware of this widespread phenomenon:

The Undersigned

    Flopping should be a technical, because it is a Joke, and players get up and are proud of something they know is wrong, you know what that is, mental sickness to think you have done something good when you know you are cheating.
