Degenerate (called a degenerate with love from a former degenerate) NBA ref Tim Donaghy was sentenced to fifteen months in prison for his role in the betting scandal that plagued the NBA.

“Though we believe no sentence would ever be able to repair or justify the damage caused by this criminal and scoundrel, we are glad to finally put this behind us,” Lamell McMorris, spokesman for the National Basketball Referees Association, said in a statement. “Tim acted in a completely selfish and unforgivable way, and has forever compromised the way people look at sports and officiating. However, NBA referees will continue to officiate with the highest level of integrity and professionalism.”

“I’d say the odds are about 4:1 that he learns what a real flagarant foul is his first night.” – Jesse H.
