Will Donaghy Bring Down the House?

The first thing I thought when I heard that former NBA referee Tim Donaghy would be "naming names" of other referees was "if I'm going down, then so are the rest of em'". It also looks like "well if I was caught gambling and was wrong, so are they". It seems as if Donaghy will be discussing other referees involved in some sort of betting action, but were they involved with the Mafia? That remains to be seen.

David Stern's take (reported in a USA Today article):

"Why would we believe anything he says?" Stern said. "What we're going to do is give all 60 referees a chance to give us information about their activities, while legal, that violate our rules."

A very good point. To believe that someone who's facing felony charges and possibly fearing for his life is going to be upfront might be far fetched. Tim Donaghy may very likely be trying to throw himself into a whirlwind of controversy just to take the focus of himself.
