anyone see the 60 minutes episode yesterday? Tim Donaghy was interviewed (the ref who gambled on nba games) anyways he basically said that refs hate and love certain players and will either call or not call fouls accordingly. Allen Iverson, for example, is hated among the refs and certain games refs would say before the game...I dont like that guy..lets show him a lesson tonight. Meanwhile, Kobe was generally loved by refs and they let him get away with more stuff. Of course this is was Donaghy said, but he worked with the FBI for a lighter sentence with the condition that any lie would break the connection, so I tend to believe him more than not believe him. The interview also mentioned that refs were urged to extend playoff series and favor the big teams during playoffs in order to increase ratings. I think i generally always thought wow this ref is gunning for this player, but to actually hear it be true was somewhat shocking. the nba did not participate in the interview..they said no comment effectively. In the past they have said this ref is lying. thoughts?
