Deron Washington Would Like To Challenge Paulus For The ACC Flopping Title (And Dirtiest Player Award)

Friday, January 25, 2008

It was well documented how dreadful Paulus' flopping was against FSU, but his antics were nothing compared to Deron Washington's show last night. In a game against Duke the Virginia Tech Forward proceeded to flop, trip players, try to get into the Duke huddle, start a fight with Paulus, AND undercut Demarcus Nelson on a dunk attempt.

Here's the video.....

It's one thing to flop and look like a complete idiot (*ahem* Paulus) but actually trying to injure people during a game is unforgivable. That undercut of Nelson was premeditated and dirty as hell. Washington should be suspended for at least a game if not more.

It's a shame because he's a talented player that just let's his frustration get the better of him.

What a prick. I'd have given him a T for the flop (something I think ought to be automatic if it's that bloody obvious - it would certainly cut down on flopping if it got guys thrown out), and then for the trip I would have tossed him.

There's no place for that kind of shit in basketball at any level.

I can't stand Virginia Tech- they are one of those schools whose alumni and students think their all that and the greatest ever

The flop was uncalled for. But the undercut, now that was an excellent maneuver.

I sure had a good time watching that game. Wouldn't have been as good without the violence.

Who doesn't respect a guy who blatantly tries to injure people??? Especially if he bounty hunts Duke.

I noticed when they were doing the starting line-ups Mike Patrick called Paulus Ron instead of Greg.

Its players like him that give Virginia Tech a bad name - and Virginia fans plenty of material to trash the Agriculturists
