Draymond Green fined $25K for criticism of officials

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green once again made a lot of headlines recently when he blasted the referees for how they officiate games.

"It's bad", Green told Slater. Five more this season and the Warriors star will be suspended for one game.

How Trump's wall pledge is complicating a DACA bill for 'Dreamers'
Almost 700,000 dreamers were enrolled in the DACA program, started by Obama in 2012, when Trump terminated it in September. The wall now represents a complicated political question for Republicans and Democrats.

"It's ruining the game". "It's bad. It's disgusting", he said. He will face an automatic one-game suspension if he gets 16 technicals, and a one-game ban for every two technicals after that.

Given Green's intensity and style of play, we have a feeling he'd end up loathing the "new crop" of referees in short time.

NFL Playoffs: Falcons favored over top-seeded Eagles in next round
The Divisional Round of the NFL's postseason will feature 20 players from Alabama high schools and colleges. The Philadelphia Eagles are about to make some National Football League postseason history.

"They can get a new crop (of referees), a whole new crop", Green said.

The idea that things have become so untenable that the league should replace its entire officiating crew seems radical, but Green truly believes that certain players, him in particular, are being singled out. I don't know what it is. However, he's not in everyone's good books these days; in fact, he's saying that his beefs with National Basketball Association referees are getting a little too personal for his liking. The league on the hand has been consistent in being on the side of the referees and is not allowing any player or coach to blast them publicly. But I think it's ridiculous. "Too much 'me against you.' It just don't work that way".

8 children among 21 killed in Syria Idlib strikes: Monitor
The Observatory says 159 rebels and government soldiers have been killed in fighting over the base since December 29. The Syrian army and its allies have vowed to take back Idlib and the neighbouring Hama Province.

Following Monday's shootaround, Warriors guard Stephen Curry defended Green, saying that officials treat Green unfairly because of his demonstrative reputation. I've seen way worse; had a blind eye turned to it. It's a give and take, but there have been more than enough instances where he's tried to compose himself and tried to have that communication and he's not given the benefit of the doubt. Curry was thrown out of a game early in the season against Memphis for throwing his mouthpiece toward an official.
