Disgraced NBA referee Tim Donaghy is making the rounds. Sunday night he spoke to CBS' 60 Minutes and described in lurid detail how he gambled on NBA games, even games he officiated. Donaghy was found out, charged, and ultimately pleaded guilty to federal wire fraud charges, he served 15 months in prison. He's out now and has written a book, "Personal Foul", detailing his 13 seasons as an NBA referee, his gambling addiction and ultimate downfall. But that's just the beginning.

The FBI conducted a full scale investigation and in the end concluded that Donaghy was telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. And that truth pointed the finger at his fellow referees, the NBA, and it's commissioner David Stern. And what was David Sterns reaction. Stern said his league is clean, that there is no problem. He called Tim Donaghy, "a rouge referee". Going Rouge, where have I heard that before?

In his 60 Minutes interview and his subsequent national interviews on Monday, Tim Donaghy told the same story. Donaghy insisted that his fellow officials would allow their personal relationships, good and bad, to determine how they called NBA games.
b4a8946265954968a1b07166a2688a9e.jpgAP PhotoAccording to Tim Donaghy Alan Iverson suffered the wrath of NBA referees
One player at the center of Tim Donaghy's allegations against fellow NBA referees was Alan Iverson. Donaghy said when NBA referee Steve Javie was on the court, Iverson would not get certain calls, but when Joe Crawford refereed, Iverson would have more freedom to perform. Video shown in the 60 Minutes interview confirmed Donaghy's charges. And it wasn't just the players who were subject to the referees whistle. Certain NBA coaches could expect a certain game when a certain ref was on the floor, and a referees relationship with team owners and general managers also carried influence.

And what gives Donaghy's comments merit, the FBI believed him. Investigators with nearly 30 years of experience were assigned to the case. And they found Tim Donaghy to be truthful, and in the 60 Minutes interview, they said so.
p1.donaghy.jpgAP PhotoTim Donaghy called the NBA more of an entertainment show than a true competition
So with all that in mind how are we to look at the National Basketball Association? Is this Professional Wrestling, are we dealing with Figure Skating and the Russian judges?
These are legitimate questions. And where is the commissioner?

Monday David Stern said his league is fine, that there is no problem with the his referees, and the NBA continues to audit the men who calls the games. It's what he's said for two years...and it's just not enough.

As David Letterman would always say, "It's not a competition...it's just an exhibition...please no wagering." You can say that again!

title of the thread makes it seem like Donaghy was the one effing iverson over, which wasnt the case. he said he never affected the outcomes of games he reffed in.


but thats with referees in anything. you'll get some guys who dont like a certain player and he doesnt get calls when he should. not really right, but thats life. shit like that happens all over the world, you get something because someone likes you, or you get shitted on because someone doesnt like you. shit happens.

Honestly, this doesn't surprise me. I think the NBA needs to put an asterisk next to the Lakers '02 title cuz there was some spotty reffing going on in the Lakers/Kings series.

over dramatized yes. But those calls on scot pollard were bullshit. and that charging foul called on chris webber was complete bullshit.

I think the NBA needs to do something like the NFL where you are allowed to challenge a few calls per game. It might slow the pace down a little bit. But the networks and the NBA go too far to protect the credibility of the refs. Notice that when a controversial call is made, they often won't even show a replay because showing a replay may prove that the ref in fact made the wrong call. Notice that the refs are allowed to use replay footage. But i've even seen them fuck that up a few times such as the Bulls Bucks game this season when Brad Miller busted the game winning shot and the footage was not enough evidence to prove whether or not the ball was still touching Miller's fingertips, but the refs reversed the call anyways and gave teh benefit of the doubt to the Bucks when the Tie should always go to the shooter just like a tie goes to the runner in baseball.

If crooked NBA playoff series were heavyweight boxers, then the 2002 Western finals (Lakers-Kings) was George Foreman and the 2001 Eastern finals (Bucks-Sixers) was Earnie Shavers. Translation: People remember only George, but Earnie was almost as memorable. To briefly recap, Philly's wins in Games 1 and 4 swung on a controversial lane violation and two egregious no-calls. The Sixers finished with advantages of 186-120 in free throws, 12-3 in technicals and 5-0 in flagrant fouls. Glenn Robinson, one of Milwaukee's top-two scorers, didn't even attempt a free throw until Game 5. Bucks coach George Karl and star Ray Allen were fined a combined $85,000 after the series for claiming the NBA rigged it. In that game, Milwaukee's best big man, Scott Williams, was charged with a flagrant foul but not thrown out, only to be suspended, improbably, for Game 7.The defining game: When Philly stole a must-win Game 4 in Milwaukee despite an atrocious performance from Iverson (10-for-32 shooting), helped by a 2-to-1 free-throw advantage and a host of late calls. How one-sided was it? When an official called a harmless touch foul to send Sam Cassell to the line with two seconds left and the Bucks trailing by seven (maybe the all-time we-need-to-pad-the-free-throw-stats-so-they-don't-seem-so-lopsided-afterward call), the subsequent sarcastic standing ovation nearly morphed into the first-ever sarcastic riot. And this was Milwaukee, the most easygoing city in the country! Nobody remembers this. The real loser was Allen, who exploded for 190 points in the series, including a record nine threepointers in do-or-die Game 6.

I saw that one ref on 60 minutes and he said that he would bet on a game depending upon the mood of the refs (when he wasn't reffing). he said Iverson did something once and all the refs had it in for him after that...........I wonder if they do that in the NFL?
