Donaghy book fiasco update

According to Deadspin, Tim Donaghy has found a new publisher for his manuscript.  The newly-titled Personal Foul: A First-Person Account of the Scandal that Rocked the NBA will be discussed on December 6th, when the former referee appears on 60 Minutes.  It is unclear when the interview was taped and thus we don’t know if Donaghy was offered an opportunity to respond to claims made by his co-conspirator, former pro gambler Jimmy Battista, in a recent appearance on HBO’s Real Sports program.  Considering Donaghy’s guilty plea and other filings with the government, it will be interesting to see how he offers anything new or noteworthy that would not result in criminal charges.  I will also be keen to assess what evidence exists to back up whatever claims are made in the book and during the related media blitz.
