First uploaded on 7/29/08 (976,000 views on http://www.youtube.com/NFLranking) on the day Tim Donaghy was sentenced to 15 months in prison, however Tim WASN'T a referee in game 6, 2002 of the Western Conference Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers vs. the Sacramento Kings (Dick Bavetta, Bob Delaney, Ted Bernhardt were the 3 officials). Donaghy used that game in his defense versus the games he officiated, citing a "NBA culture" of officiating that favors the bigger markets. With that knowledge and the other officials' tendencies he won at a staggering 77% against the spread. There are some who oppose him, mainly his bookie Jimmy Battista, that refute most of Tim claims, yet all the major sports networks refuse to cover this story with the exception of 60 minutes, Foxnews, and Real Sports on HBO. I've followed this story since 2008 and as a lifelong Kings fan, I can't help but think if they had won in 2002, the Kings wouldn't be in jeopardy of being sold to Seattle.
