Default Re: Feds investigating NBA ref in mafia betting scam

Doesn't anyone remember the story that ESPN ran on... and I believe it was Joey Crawford... a year or two ago? Something about how before being an NBA ref he had mob ties... and that he was working against them... undercover or something or other. I can't remember to be honest. All I remember is Joey Crawford had ties one way or another pre NBA.

But it's not him... some reports are saying that it's not him.

Anyways...

In 1998, Crawford was one of 10 NBA referees charged with filing false income tax returns. An Internal Revenue Service investigation was the result of cash being pocketed by referees when airline tickets provided by the league were downgraded. At the conclusion of a four year investigation, Crawford pleaded guilty on July 1, 1998 for falsely stating income of $82,500 from 1991 to 1993 and resigned from the NBA effective immediately. He would be reinstated by NBA commissioner David Stern in 1999 and did not miss a game due to a players' lockout to start the 1998-99 NBA season.
from wikipedia so take it for what it's worth but that sounds right...

he did not ref any of the past 2 Finals. However he was involved in at least two playoff games this year. I'm just too lazy to go check every box score on ESPN to see what other games he did.
