Love it or hate it?

I love the premise but I wish there was in game ejections/fouls for flopping a la soccer and hockey.

I'm kind of undecided on how I feel about this... it'll be interesting to see how this impacts how players play.

That'll be enforced for the first month or so and then it'll relax. It's the same as the "stop complaining about calls" rule. Everyone got T'd up for a month and the players were "trained" to stop.
