Are the Technical Fouls In the NBA Too Strict?

As if you haven't heard the Technical Foul Rules have gotten more harsh this season. From what I've heard the new guidelines is calling on the referees to call more technicals on any comment the players make toward the referees. The referees of course already had the authority to do this but its now like the league is insisting on them doing so. Do you think its overkill? I think it is because even the referees can make mistakes on calls and if a player mouths off they can get a technical they don't deserve. Also just the emotion of the game can cause players to naturally get upset. Such a reaction is called being human but the NBA is too ignorant to realize this. I really think the NBA is starting to go too soft now. You now got personal fouls being called too easily from what seems like just putting putting a finger on a defender and it looks like sooner or later there's going to be a record amount of technicals being called on players. By where things are headed why not just allow players to make an uncontested layup,lol.

hi eliko no I really do not agree as in earlier years some players'became known for theier rough and over bearing downright' meanness as they got by with murder almost. so maybe the NbA has gone a bit too far the other way bu t its better than what it was a few years back. several players were really getting out of hand and someone had to call a halt before some player was badly hurt. I think it will even out in a year or two and come back to more'normal rules.

well those type of players got a 1 year suspension without pay by the league. i think that punishment is bad enough in it self.
