have u read the letter???...if not STFU
donaghy claims league officials instructed refs not to call techs on star players or take them out the game...um, okay. if i'm not mistaken, fans and even media members stay saying the players that take a team to the postseason- the stars- should not be taken out of the game because of refs.
obviously league executives want their moneymakers on the floor as well since it is what everyone wants. but, i guess you feel donaghy really dropped a bombshell with this one.
who really cares if the refs a.ssociate with players, coaches, or other team members? if they show obvious bias in a game, they will get dealt with. do you know how closely the nba monitors these guys? it is against league rules, but it seems pretty minor.
if yao ming was setting illegal screens, then the refs should look for it closely, especially if it is giving his team an unfair advantage.
how can donaghey prove that foul calls were ignored? should we really believe that another ref told him that he purposely extended the series?
basically, until donaghy comes up with some video, tapes, letters, and/or emails this letter fails to prove anything
