I Got a Basketball Jones

The sports universe is bothered by the charges recently levied against NBA referee Tim Donaghy, that he wagered on games in which he personally reffed. One thinks this would effect his performance. Surprise. If this guy could cheat at this level does that mean there are like shenanigans either occuring or destined to occur in other big-time sports?

Personal Truthism always bites back hard. Donaghy obviously justified what he did or he wouldn't have done it. Or, if he felt conflicted doing it he wasn't conflicted enough to get help to have himself dragged away for the good of the game and mankind at-large.

Not many people have a problem believing there's massive corruption at the highest level--with government officials. Not many people are surprised when pedophiles get exposed mixing their "priestly" duties with their sexual proclivities. So why are we surprised when a NBA ref makes bets on games he's reffing?
