A combined 25-0 by bettors against Las Vegas not easily explained away.
During the 2006-07 period under investigation, TEN games refereed by Scott Foster had lopsided enough betting on one team to move the point spread by at least 2 points; those ten teams were UNDEFEATED against Vegas - meaning that the big-money gamblers won a perfect 10 of 10 times on Foster's games; the odds of that happening randomly are greater than 1000 to 1 against!Combined, the two questionable referees had big line moves in 13% of their games. A random sample of the first 100 NBA games of December 2007 resulted in only 6% of games having a line move of 2 points or more. RJ Bell of Pregame.com said: "Donaghy and Foster's games had big line moves over double as often as a random sample of NBA games."MEDIA NOTE: Print, radio, TV, and Internet media should feel free to quote any information above.

RJ, nice to see good work rewarded. I linked to your article on examiner.com for my readers to see how quickly David Stern's world can turn cloudy again.
Nice work RJ, thanks for the info which was helpful in my article as well. Glad to see USA Today picked it up, and didn't just go with the drivel presented by the NBA.
Great work RJ, keep this place growing my friend! :)
