Comment of the Day: Duke Floppers Ain't Got Nothing on the Spurs
We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.
So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.
This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.
Yesterday we pointed out that it is March, and therefore time to resume the annual hating of the Duke basketball team and their propensity to flop in order to get offensive-foul calls.

Jared wrote, mentioning the Duke defenders who commented:
Gotta say, I am forced to side with your "detractors" from yesterday. I find this post extremely offensive. I mean, seriously Sean. How do you not save the best (Paulus) for last? For shame indeed.
It isn't just the flopping though. It's the fact that they get away with it almost 100% of the time. And the pundits (Dickie V) who side with them. "Little acting there." "He pushed him though!" Really?
Of course, this happens in the NBA as well. It's called San Antonio Spurs basketball.
