This Could Be Huge


The FBI is reportedly investigating an NBA referee who was allegedly betting on basketball games, including games he worked in the past two seasons. The New York Post first reported Friday that the year-long investigation is focusing on allegations that the referee bet on games and was making calls that affected the point spread on games. The newspaper reported that according to sources, an arrest of the referee was imminent and that NBA Commissioner David Stern is aware of the investigation.

Can you imagine? If this is true, this will be the biggest sports scandal in years. And what if he was a ref in the Dallas/Miami finals from last year? Do you think Cuban will go crazy?

As a former coach, I can tell you it is VERY VERY frustrating when the calls go the "other way" and you KNOW the referee is on the take. There's nothing you can do about it either, unless you have absolute evidence.... which is almost impossible to get in high school sports. Don't think it doesn't happen, folks. It does.

Why are you surprized on this? How many referees, etc. do you think haven't been caught for this type of behavior?

This is going to be almost as good as when Bush/Chimpy/Gedub/Dumbya/the idiot you idiots elected POTUS gets impeached.

REALITY CHECK: As if that will ever happen. Probably not. Oh well, I'll make do with this new sports scandal right now.

Oh, and we still have that Madame's phone list.
