so what did he say in there? basically that he just bet on games and certain refs call the game differently? a whole lot of talk with little substance.

someone's just trying to make money by selling book...

Absolutely sickening. And what's a player supposed to do? They complain about the {clearly acknowledged} bias/cheating and then the refs take it out on them even more because they said something about it?

I don't know how anybody could behave like them, let alone those supposed to have the most morals by being refs.

I remember hearing about this book years ago and I heard something the David Stern and the NBA threatened to sue him if he wrote it. Anyone remember that? Also when does it come out?

The bit I hated the most was when they decided to let AI get hammered throughout whole games cos he moaned about a ref...that guy took it to the rim hard, basically got ignored at times.... this is an old story but he was and still is scum.
