It's also important to note that the NBA has full-time officials, not a bunch of CEOs that are refs as a hobby. I wonder if any players will be implicated in point-shaving as the investigation wears on - that's MUCH more difficult to catch than refs possibly fixing games.

I know ...this has the potential to get really ugly really quick...and with the season only about 3-4 months away.

This could have really serious longterm implications for all sports.

Somewhere I'm hearing Seahawk fans go..."I told you so..." I still say eff them.

Still, the NBA has an image issue enough as it is, now they have this hanging over their head. Even if this is one guy, he could be connected to any players. This is pretty serious.
