    That's why I changed it to balaclava. It's fun learning new words.

    Since we started the forum, Darth and linwood have taught me all kinds of words I never knew before like

    %%%%
    %%%%
    %%%%
    %%%%%
    %%%%

    and many others.

    I hear Bavetta would bring one coach cookies before the game.
    The coaches rate the refs. which gets them playoff games, good reports equals more money.

    The investigation should probably advance to Foster. Then his phone records will probably show others, etc.

    That middleman didn't really throw them off, did he?

    At least he wasn't dumb enough to do it all via text messages.

    This is awesome. Luckily, the Pistons never get the benefit of this.

    Right? ;)

    The article says he was 27-10 betting on games. 27 and freaking 10 against the spread!!! Nobody is .700 against the spread, unless they're fixing the games. Oh, yeah right. I forgot. He was fixing the games.

    He probably had trouble outweighing the other refs in those 10 games... cause they had bets in the other direction.
