Big Surprise. The NBA is Fixed.


The 40-year-old Tim Donaghy resigned from the NBA two weeks ago and is the man of the hour. Accused of fixing games due to gambling debts, he is thought to have been a mafia target to change game outcomes. HE also is known to have bet on games that he officiated. I doubt this guy could get a job selling vintage fabrics at this point and is pretty much a leper in the sports world.

Man the NBA just gets worse and worse every time I try to get back into it. Fans everywhere always complain about the officiating in any sport, but this time they have good reason to believe that games really are fixed. I've watched so many NBA games the last few years that I have wondered many times if some of these referees were ont he take. I guess now my suspicions are founded.

A point-shaving scandal is an enormous problem in any sport. This one, which might involve an NBA referee, has the potential to permanently scar the league.

The NBA acknowledged Friday the FBI is investigating Tim Donaghy for betting on games, including ones in which he officiated. read more...

Bonds Hits 2 HRs today looks like the Evil Barry Bonds is only 2 homers away from catching Hammerin' Hank and his truck toolbox in the all-time HR race. Sitting at 753 career home runs, Bonds needs only 2 to tie Hank Aaron for the most homers by one player in MLB history.

Most people actually care that Barry allegedly used steroids. I do not and never will. The guy still has to hit the ball and swinging a bat is more about speed than anything. Whatever you say about Bonds, this is an amazing accomplishment. isn't like he is going to hold this record for more than 10 years anyways. A-Rod is going to hit 1000 HRs.

Michael Vick

This guy is not only a terrible quarterback, but he is a questionable human being. I guess he is now indicted by a Federal Grand Jury over his dog fighting escapades. On top of this it has been said that he was present during not only a dog electrocution, but also the drowning of another dog. I don't expect he will need any sort of ionamin to make weight this year with all the stress of the government rolling down on him.
