this is professional sport for you, it is a problem not only for the nba but for every other sport,,, I watch a lot of european soccer and the stuff you see there makes the nba refs look like saints. I remember watching man city vs man utd, the game was tied at 3-3 but manUtd were pressing in the final minutes so the ref let the game go 6 minutes into extra time (usually the maximum time awarded would be 4 or 5 minutes in extreme circumstances) and only stopped the game when manU scored.
refs bias will always be a problem because they are human and as humans we subconsciously let our preferences influence our decisions ... i think this all adds to the drama of the game ... now it is a major problem if refs are betting on it and making profits like in Donaghy's case ... but it didn't seem that any other ref in the game is involved in the betting..

I'm sure there's some truth to all of this, but Donaghy has absolutely no credibility whatsoever.

The truth is somewhere in the middle. I don't think it's as extreme as Donaghy's making it out to be but it's also obvious that the issue isn't nonexistent.

Lamell McMorris said Thursday that Donaghy also threatened fellow referees, whom he has accused of misconduct during a series of interviews this week.

"His attacks have been malicious and his claims continue to be unfounded," McMorris said in a statement. "Donaghy is a convicted felon and a compulsive liar with loyalty to no one but himself."

McMorris declined to give specifics of the threats, but indicated to The Associated Press they came when Donaghy called his office after McMorris put out statements on behalf of the referees after the Donaghy betting scandal broke in 2007.

McMorris also cited Donaghy's "pattern of intimidation" and issues with his temper, including a dispute with his neighbors while living in Philadelphia that the NBA investigated. His statement said Donaghy's life "has been marked by a pattern of dishonesty," noting that he was forced to return to prison after he was accused of violating terms of his probation.

If you have some time, I suggest watching this...I was 14 when this took place -and cheering for the Lakers- but even I was able to perceive how fraudulent it seemed at the time..

Yep, there is no way Kings should have lost that game. The refs made sure Lakers got the win.

I was cheering against the Lakers with all my heart. The Lakers should always get an asterisk next to their championships. Yeah - I'm exaggerating, but it's a terrible thing.

Makes me want to hurl. The refs were either stoned or well paid.

I can't believe the Kings kept their composure and kept playing.

who likes man city, man u was always the better team. Ur right fifa does have issues with certain players and teams. The best example was in the world cup. Ghana vs Brazil. They just didn't wanna call offside
