Save the NBA from itself! Act Now!
Given the fact that a vast majority of fans now believe that the NBA officials can not be trusted, concerned fans at SpursReport.Com (http://www.spursreport.com) have decided to make it as easy as possible for others to contact their political representatives in order to urge them to call for congressional hearings into the matter.
ďIf you truly care about the game and want to feel secure in knowing that situations like the Donaghy case and his accusations are no longer part of professional basketball, we the fans need to take matters into our own hands and contact our congressional representatives for hearings into the matter,Ē writes board administrator Peter DePalma.
No matter how forthright the NBA claims it is being with the gameís fans, it was the FBI who discovered the improprieties involving the refs- not the NBA! We can not trust that the league will objectively investigate and fix the problems we have all perceived all these years. And if congress can spend time and energy cleaning up baseball and steroids, then it should certainly look into the possibility of tampering by NBA officials.

I am writing today first as a consumer and second as a fan of the National Basketball Association.
I care about the sport, but am very concerned that league officials have lost their sense of impartiality and professionalism.
It is important that you help us regain our trust in the commercial sports performances that have been severely broken recently.
Frankly, the officiating has been broken a long time. In which other sport do fans worry that involvement by the referees will end up determining the outcome of key games more then they do in the NBA?
Itís time to launch an official investigation now, during a time when the publicís confidence is shaken by headlines reporting the breach of trust by corporate executives. You must help us find a maintained a sense of impartiality and professionalism in commercial sports.
I and other NBA fans urge you to order a review of the gameís officiating, perceptions and suspicions, however presently absent any evidence, will abound.
I look forward to your response and action on my behalf.
