Caitlin Clark and the Indiana Fever played Washington DC on Wednesday night at home in Indianapolis.

During the game Caitlin Clark was once again assaulted on the court – and once again the flagrant foul was completely ignored by the refs.

Caitlin Clark is clobbered by another WNBA player on Wednesday night. The refs did nothing.

This was the latest assault on Clark, the savior of the league, in a WNBA game in front of thousands of fans when the refs looked the other way and her teammates did nothing.

These women sure seem to have something against Caitlin!

Here’s the video.

of course, this was not an isolated incident. We are getting used to these attacks on Caitlin Clark.

On Sunday, the anticipated rematch game between the Chicago Sky and Indiana Fevers turned ugly when Chicago’s Angel Reese delivered a brutal elbow to the savior of the WNBA, Caitlin Clark, during a layup attempt.

The incident occurred during the third quarter of the match when Clark, showing her usual agility and speed, went in for a layup.

Reese, seemingly aiming to block the shot, swung her elbow with such force that it hit Clark’s head, resulting in the player falling.

The referees intervened, reviewing the video footage before categorizing the foul as flagrant 1. However, this decision has been met with criticism from fans and commentators alike, many of whom believe that the severity of Reese’s action warranted a higher penalty.

A flagrant foul, penalty 1, is when a player makes unnecessary contact with an opponent that could cause injury. This is considered a dangerous play that indicates a disregard for the opponent’s safety or an intent to harm.

According to the NBA:

Referees may use replay whenever they are not reasonably certain whether a foul meets the criteria for a flagrant foul.  Previously, the foul had to be called flagrant on the floor in order to initiate instant replay.

The definition for a flagrant foul is:

  • Flagrant Foul Penalty 1: Unnecessary contact committed by a player against an opponent
  • Flagrant Foul Penalty 2: Unnecessary and excessive contact committed by a player against an opponent

When a flagrant foul call is made, referees conduct a review and consider the following:

  1. Whether the foul call be categorized as a flagrant 1 or flagrant 2 (thus ejection) or stay as a common foul or changed to a technical foul
  2. Whether any other players committed unsportsmanlike acts immediately prior to and/or immediately following the foul.

Here’s another angle recorded by Dave Portnoy:

This was the second time Caitlin Clark has been assaulted by a player from Chicago Sky.

These women sure have a weird way of welcoming their savior to the league.
