Duck! and Gather

I just added an Essay on the Donaghy NBA scandal. Here’s the abstract:

On Friday, July 20, 2007, a story broke that shook the NBA to its foundations. An NBA referee is about to arrested for point shaving and disclosing secret information, by way of helping the mob in its gambling activities. Early indications are that this ref engaged in this illegal activity during the past two seasons. Ironically, or as this essay argues, consistently, the same ref was promoted by the NBA for performing his job so well during the past two seasons. How can it be that a ref’s performance of his job can simultaneously please both the NBA and the mob? This essay argues that the answer to this question calls for the dismantling of the NBA corporation as we know it.
