That the coaching staff, players, and fans are showing way more excessive body language and facial expressions whenever a foul is being called? Yes, I'm trying to make a point that everyone is aware of the book and all have probably read the same excerpts. It is going to be pretty interesting as time passes because the NBA has made a statement that they will read the book and act accordingly.
I think Donaghy is scheduled to be released later this week so I'm sure he's going to be stormed by reporters about the book and if he can prove the statements are true. As most of you know he mentioned names in the book and those people can sue him for infringement... (I think that's what it's called from business law) so he better be careful on what he says during those interviews.
After reading the excerpts I've become pretty disgusted about the way the NBA was ran up till this season. There were probably games that were ran last season but this season should be different now that the refs have all been put on blast by the media. I hate knowing that games have been rigged for this many years because I gamble too and I've mostly been on the losing side =*(
The thing I think sucks most about this is that the refs probably hated the Warriors squad the most so games have always been called against us for years... no wonder we only made playoffs once in 15 seasons. Ok Ok, I know it's just silly excuses but I'm sure it had to count for a number of games over the years. Maybe I'm just crazy but I think these refs gotta go and I think we would have been better with those D-League refs... at least we know they could make trustworthy calls and improve as time goes by.
Whatever, but I think whenever you've worked the bizz for plenty of years you're going to know how to work the bizz for your own benefits. Am I right? I would if I worked the same job for 20 + years and no one ever questioned you besides a silly rating system.
