Tim Donaghy is Watching the Watchmen

Deadspin is having Tim Donaghy, a former NBA ref who served time for gambling on games, give critiques of the referees for the NBA Finals. See his reviews of game 1 and game 2.

I think this is great. The NBA has the worst officiating of any sport in the world. Inconsistency, allowances for “star” players, home crowd influence, and so on. It drives me insane sometimes. If a game were called consistently, you’d either have no fouls or 100 fouls. Players are constantly pushing on each other and then they get called for a foul when they hand-check? What?
