FBI Probes NBA Referee

Hey, maybe the Knick's were not that bad afterall.

FBI probes allegations NBA ref bet on games he worked
NEW YORK -- The FBI is investigating allegations that a veteran NBA referee bet on basketball games over the past two seasons, including ones in which he officiated.

According to a law enforcement official, authorities are examining whether the referee made calls to affect the point spread in games on which he or associates had wagered.
If this is true, and they can prove this guy made calls to affect points, we got trouble with a capital "T". A lot of professional sports revolves around gambling in one form or another, but it all depends on the games themselves being honest.

I wonder how many Knick's games this ref worked...

The lunatics at the PuffHost blame Bush. Naturally.

UPDATE: The referee's name is Tim Donaghy, and he has apparently already resigned from the NBA. Assuming he was connected to any wise guys, the authorities need to get him someplace safe and away from windows.
