Exclamation Donaghy Lawyer: Coaches, Players Altered Games

Disgraced basketball referee Tim Donaghy told investigators in the NBA betting probe that relationships among officials, coaches and players "affected the outcome of games," his attorney said. The league said the charges were unfounded.

Donaghy's attorney made the assertions in a letter filed in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn on Monday, in which he argued that his client should be sentenced to probation because he fully cooperated with prosecutors and has been undergoing treatment for his gambling addiction.

The attorney also suggested that Donaghy told investigators about the gambling activities of other NBA officials and about a referee who passed "confidential" information to an unidentified coach.

The attorney, John F. Lauro, wrote that the U.S. attorney's office for the Eastern District agreed to plea agreements with other defendants in the case, even though his client told investigators about NBA matters outside of the government's initial investigation. Lauro said the disparity in treatment could not be fully explained because prosecutors have "surrounded this case with a cone of silence."

Heres an idea. Why dont they "mic" up the ref's to see what they sayduring a game. They dont have to play it on tv, but something that both teams should be able to go back and analyse or at least the league.

I love how in rugby (in england at least) the ref's are mic'd up so you hear what they say. With the big $$ that rolls around these days, transparancy is key if you are going to get fans to trust in officials decisions.

I dont htink this invades the privacy of a decision because it will make refs "think" about waht they say and how they make calls...IMO, would make it better for everyone.

Of course that praly wont ever be allowed.
