QB dog killers, cheatin’ referees: sports downward spiral intensifies

by on July 20, 2007 updated April 19, 2014

Pop quiz: What would you rather own — Atlanta Falcons tickets or NBA basketball tickets?
It hasn’t exactly been the best of weeks for either the Falcons or the NBA.
First, Michael Vick, Atlanta’s electric quarterback, is indicted in a federal dog fighting investigation. Then, reports break that an NBA referee was gambling on games he officiated.
What’s next: An instant replay official failing to consider blatantly obvious video evidence and allowing Oregon to defeat Oklahoma?
I’m not sure the solution to what appears to be an increasingly aggressive downward spiral in the sports world. But what I am sure is that both Atlanta Falcons tickets and NBA tickets will be under intense scrutiny for awhile.
