DISGRACED NBA REF BET ON OVER 100 GAMES

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ACCUSED GAMBLER AND WIFE ABUSER TIM DONAGHY

Here’s a huge story the mainsteam media is virtually ignoring.

Disgraced basketball referee Tim Donaghy placed bets on over 100 NBA games he worked in over a four year period. That’s the word from federal prosecutors in New York. A New York Post story says Donaghy bet on about half the games he worked in during the last four years of his career as an NBA ref.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

VERTICALLY CHALLENGED EGOMANIAC DAVID STERN

The league is obviously vey sensitive about this topic. Commissioner David Stern has continually chided reporters and interviewers who ask him about Donaghy betting on games. Stern always maintains that Donaghy has never been charged with influencing the outcome of games (a laughable position if he bet A HUNDRED games he personally worked in and no others) and also wasn’t charged with betting the games. Stern’s position is Donaghy was charged with giving information to illegal bookmakers.

 A couple of weeks ago NBA announcer Kevin Calabro was forced to come back from a break and recant his statement on the air that Donaghy was charged with betting on games. It was obvious that somebody from the league office gave him hell.

Also, ESPN (the NBA’s “broadcast partner”) pulled the AP story headlined, “Donaghy Bet on 100 Games, Prosecutors Say” off its website. The story is still on www.foxsports.com

The league’s website NBA.com also has no mention of the Donaghy story.
