[eDebate] The HEAT really is ON

I wish Stackhouse was in for game 5, escalation helps the Heat.  But it would be inconsistent for the league not to suspend him given their recent precidents.  Udonis did far less.  And support for the suspension comes from others, including Scottie Pippin last night on ESPN.  I just hope that no instructions to Refs to tighten up the calls came with the suspension; if they let em play old school, physical basketball, the Heat is in good shape.  Thanks for the SoFla love, KC!  Go Heat.
And go Canes in the CWS tonight!

First, your argument about Stack is insane (witness ESPN poll 70-30 against suspension) the hallmark of championship teams in the NBA has ALWAYS been ability to take a hard foul and not giving up layups on break-aways.  There are at least three plays like that in every finals I have ever seen and I have NEVER seen a suspension until this year.  That was a normal/typical "no layups" foul.   I could make a ton more arguments for why its a stupid suspension but I dont need to...NOBODY aside from people in Fla agrees with you (not even Shaq). 
Second, my rule is not from the University of Texas.  Your argument is like saying "dont go to the Red River Shootout because its in Texas.  You live in Oklahoma...your natural pro teams are Dallas teams (gee wonder how I became a fan hmmmm.......). 
You were much more persuasive on democracy in the topic process,

	Josh, I dont think that the situation is so much that people love the Heat, although Acosta and Steinberg are above reproach here, but almost everyone hates to see people from Texas succeed at things. Certainly my cause for supporting the Heat -- they are the "Not from Texas Team". Go everyone not from Texas. And seriously, no one is as sweet as DWade. 
	Also, calm down about Stack. He deserved it and everyone knows it. You dont get to do your flying, two-fisted Superman punch on Shaq or anyone and play the next game. That was a brutal foul that if he hadnt been suspended would have been the worst standard ever, the refs saying, "you can do that to Shaq, but no one else." 
	Please god, dont let Dallas win at anything ever.
