In the past I haven't believed the refs were compromised by anything, but instead that they were incompetent. This thing has my head spinning, because it was going on under Stern's nose, and he was implementing zero tolerance which considering that at least 1 ref may have compromised, gave that guy even more tools to affect outcomes. I think we would be naive to believe that Donaghy was the only NBA ref who ever bet on a game. The question is, are there other active or recently active refs who may have been involved collectively or independently? If a ref gambled 20 years ago and retired, I'm pretty sure they will let that sleeping dog lie, unless they can prove a conspiracy that involved a number of officials. I'd be very interested to know how many techs and ejections Donaghy meted out last season.
