Given the early interviews I have entertained for Gaming the Game, it is apparent the issue of Tim Donaghy’s numerous and repeated claims made after his November 2009 release from prison will be discussed for some time. In this regard, this page will serve as a repository for interested parties (especially those in the media) for “one-stop shopping” when it comes to how Donaghy’s claims stand up to scrutiny, particularly when assessed by federal law enforcement officials with direct knowledge of the investigation and prosecution, and how they compare to the actual, documented record (some of which is available online – see here, and here).
