<<andakin: the director sucked. He would have the crowd pantomime whenever there was significant noise or dialogue. He had the opposing basketball team warm up in the background during dialog "Without having the ball touch the ground" because it made background noise. Obviously, this man knew little about editing, since the sound would end up being re-dubbed and mixed later.>> Obviously you know little about sound editing. It is one thing to lay down a background 'atmos' track - it is quite another to go through a scene trying to sync the sound of a ball bouncing. The director was trying to make the sound editor's job easier!
