Ex-referee Tim Donaghy blows whistle on NBA dirty secrets

Tim Donaghy, who pleaded guilty to charges of betting on games he officiated, is now airing NBA's dirty laundry.

Ex-NBA referee Tim Donaghy told the feds two refs fixed the outcome of one playoff series - and that officials were told not to eject star players from games for fear of hurting ticket sales.

The bombshell allegations are contained in a court document filed Tuesday by Donaghy's lawyer. It describes the “inner workings" of the NBA in which top league executives used referees to manipulate games.

Donaghy, who pleaded guilty in Brooklyn Federal Court to charges of betting on games he officiated, told FBI agents “league officials would tell referees that they should withhold calling technical fouls on certain star players because doing so hurt ticket sales and television ratings," the document said.

Donaghy claims he was told that two refs who were “company men” acting in the interest of the NBA conspired to extend a playoff series in 2002 to a seventh game.

The referees allegedly ignored flagrant fouls committed by the team that needed to win. They also reportedly called "made-up fouls" against the other team which led to the ejection of two of their players. The team favored by the refs won that night and the next game to win the series.

The document does not name the teams. The Nets were in that playoff series, losing the championship finals to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Donaghy also claimed a supervising referee told refs that an unidentified NBA executive did not want them to call technical fouls on star players or boot them from the game.

Donaghy told feds the league reprimanded a referee who disobeyed that edict in January 2000 and ejected an unnamed star player from a game in the first quarter.

Lawyer John Lauro filed the four-page letter to Federal Judge Carol Amon because none of the information was included in the government’s letter to the judge seeking leniency for Donaghy when he is sentenced next month.

Lauro has gone to war against Brooklyn federal prosecutors for offering plea deals to Donaghy's betting accomplices that give them less time than the disgraced ref, despite his extensive cooperation.

Donaghy claims referees have accepted autographs, free merchandise and meals from team coaches and managers. He told probers one referee used a team's practice facility to exercise and another played tennis with an NBA coach.

"These activities were against NBA rules, indeed, such inappropriate relationships could influence the outcome of games," Lauro wrote.

Lauro said he withheld the names of the teams, referees and league officials because the feds may still investigate the allegations.

once again watch the tape, look at bibby grabbing kobe, then come back.
Dude i watched the game... Bibby was holding him like you said? Thats a foul on Bibby.. Kobe throws a elbow in front of the ref and thats a foul on Bibby... That sounds like a technical foul on person who throws the elbow... dont be bias now.

an accidental elbow does not warrant a technical foul

If it was accidental... but it wasnt...

You know it, i know it...

Dont try to turn a blind eye on the situation...

When we were watching that game at home, and that 4th quarter took place we said this sh*t was rigged..

6 years later... the truth comes out.

Accept it.

this is what you goat haters forced tim to do in his efforts to please you


also, considering jordan was the OG of benefiting from these donaghy shenanigans, i think it'd be perfectly fine if we just erased him from the history books. i nominate kobe take all but one of his mvp's and the other one go to sasha vujacic. and give the dpoy to nash. it cant possibly be any more embarrassing than jordan getting it in the first place :applause:


edit: "we"?


drop names, tim

This is nothing we did not already suspect or to our minds knew was going on. Certain games have been scripted like it was wwe lol. Its sad i have seen this garbage going on for while now. Im glad its coming to the light but they are still using refs from this corrupt system. I wish more people would speak up or be caught so the league can clean up this mess.

i dont understand how stern doesnt get run outta his position with this type of scandal that he obviously knew about. i think the league would be better from a competitive standpoint without him their having a hand in the outcome to help with revenue.

NBA is definitely "rigged" you can clearly see it, because if it's not the high school basketball refs in Florida are A LOT better then these "pros"..

What's funny though, is I believe Donaghy over Stern, dude has FACTS and evidence about what's going on, and the NBA is saying "no that's not true"....bi*ch throw some facts down on the situation. I live in Miami now, so I'm a default Heat fan so I go and cheer for the hometeam, and there was no way Miami wins the trophy if that series wasn't rigged
