Memphis company offers to pay David Fizdale’s fine
David Fizdale’s rant about referees was well-received by a whole lot of people, including one Memphis business.
Memphis-based ServiceMaster, which operates brands such as Terminix, offered on Tuesday to pay any fine Fizdale got for his now-famous “take that for data” rant after the Memphis Grizzlies’ Game 2 loss to San Antonio.

Fizdale did, indeed, get fined for his outburst, but nobody seems to mind. The team itself has embraced Fizdale’s comments, and there’s no doubt that many fans would be happy to join with ServiceMaster in paying off the coach’s fine. Besides, if it gets him a more even refereeing performance in Game 3, it’ll be worth it.
