Super bummed about that one. I guess his music should've been a clue he's a creeper.


His music? WTF? :noway: He makes music about raping 13 year olds? I need to hear this so-called music.


Ryan Adams didn't rape a 13 year old. He was an psychologically abusive jackass to people of age.


One of the allegations is Adams had nude and completely sexual skype calls with a girl from the age of 14 to 16

The other allegations is he used his influence to be an abusive jackass to women of age

His ex Mandy Moore has spoken about his ways and it doesn't sound good

Why can't he be all 3 of those things? I know I'm not the only one who recalls the the messed up comment he made to Kobe's wife when he was ring chasing during his stint in LA. The Mailman seems pretty scumbagish to me.

I always thought there was something off about Malone with the whole trucking thing. Seemed strange for a wealthy grown man.

It definitely has never been posted, not since I've been around.

I'm actually just more surprised that you haven't heard. You're one of the more knowledgeable posters on here especially with its history - being as how you were also around when Jesus walked the earth :naaa:. That was cheap, sorry Wingo.

But I think it's good you posted it since I bet a lot of young posters never knew this. But then again, I bet they don't even know who Malone is, let alone the #2 player on the NBA all time scoring list

Well, he was a small town kid. That's really the mentality we're brought up with - when you're finished with HS, time to go to work right away. If you happen to go to college, you come back when you're done and follow the path of your parents. So I'm not surprised by him wanting to do that stuff when he was done with basketball.

Being naive to the real world can be really **** when leave your small town. Youre brought up thinking people are genuinely nice and look out for one another. You don't have exposure to how **** up and **** people are until you leave your small town.

It doesn't excuse what he did. And I'm surprised he hasn't been exposed as much as others

Ha!

The only thing I ever heard bad about The Mailman was that he sexed Kobe’s wife. And even then there wasn’t any stories about this that I recall

The son made it to the NFL. That's kinda when it became public. And then the Cheryl Ford story has always been out there. Malone came from a different era where the media protected athletes not outed them. Michael Jordan was protrayed as a family man, not the guy that knocked up Juanita and married bher because Phil said it would mess with his endorsement image. Larry Bird has a couple illegitimate children that he never acknowledged and was a dead beat dad towards, but they rarely talked about it. Magic's sex parties were only a story once he declared he had HIV.

The info is out there, but the media climate isn't what it is today and so it wasn't considered that big a deal compared to their prowess on the courts.

OT: FBI Agent Regrets Involving NBA In Tim Donaghy Probe 

Post#1051 » by 2010 » Tue Feb 19, 2019 5:40 pm

Phil Scala, a former FBI agent that worked on the Tim Donaghy case, regrets briefing David Stern, Adam Silver, Joel Litvin and Bernie Tolbert on June 21st, 2007 about one of their referees betting on his own game and giving inside information to a gambling ring. The NBA was not told about potential game-fixing.


Scala recounts Stern mostly being upset that the NBA's in-house security didn't discover Donaghy's wrongdoing prior to the NBA.


The feds had planned on using Donaghy as an informant and to get other allegedly corrupt referees to incriminate themselves. But the probe leaked to the New York Post.


"If you're going to ask me if I would do it differently now, the answer is yes. I would not have gone to brief Stern," Scala said.


"Our plans were blown up by the fact that somebody leaked this," Scala lamented to me. "I don't like to talk in terms of coulda, woulda, shoulda, but if the Post story didn't come out, [Donaghy] would have worn a wire, and I don't know where it would have gone. Things may have been different. That's the bottom line."


Both Donaghy and the NBA tried to convince the FBI that he didn't fix games.


"They told us, 'You can't fix a game in the NBA. It's impossible,'" Scala said. "When someone tells you something's impossible, you know they're full of s---, because nothing's impossible. But that was the company line."

Re: OT: FBI Agent Regrets Involving NBA In Tim Donaghy Probe 

Post#1054 » by 2010 » Tue Feb 19, 2019 6:02 pm

Tim Donaghy refused to take a polygraph test in 2009 on whether he fixed NBA games because he would fail it. Donaghy has publicly denied fixing games, but he has taken a different position privately at times.

Researchers found that his foul calls favored the team that was bet on more heavily 77 percent of the time in the 30 games that were deemed competitive during that stretch. In those 30 games, Donaghy's calls favored the team he bet on 23 times, went against the team he bet on three times and were neutral four times.

The NBA released a statement revealing that it did not come to the same conclusion after doing extensive research in its own right:

"To be clear, the Pedowitz team and the NBA performed substantial statistical and data-based analyses to determine whether Donaghy attempted to manipulate games he officiated. All of our efforts were focused on understanding precisely what he did and how he did it so we would be best equipped to protect the integrity of our games going forward. ... These analyses did not support [ESPN's] finding that an unbiased official would not have made the calls that Donaghy did."

Per an account in New York magazine in 2015, the NBA somehow persuaded Random House to kill Donaghy's memoir. Donaghy then found another publisher: a small, independent, newly established outfit run by Shawna Vercher.

No doubt games were fixed back then. The Kings def got robbed. I am sure there were others. Not that the officiating is perfect or great nowadays, but it was next level during that era.

We got lucky. The NBA has never even come close to helping the Knicks. If anything it has been the opposite.
