My point is: when Charles Barkley gets fined, it's cute, but when any Piston
gets fined, it's not punishment enough for the bastards!

Since you didn't hear: Rodman wrote a formal apology letter to Pippen for the
push in the last game. Pippen accused Dennis of not writing it.
When Scottie fouled Bill Laimbeer hard in Game 5 of the 1990 E Conf finals
(I got a picture of it: it looks like he's trying to break his neck)
he had no apology.

Let me say it loud so you can all hear: DOUBLE STANDARDS!
