Tim Donaghy and the lie detector
By Henry Abbott
Through all the he-said, she-said, don't you kind of wish someone would just hook Tim Donaghy up to a polygraph machine?
He says they did. His book includes some questions about other referees that Donaghy says were on a polygraph he passed with flying colors. In addition he promised, on camera, to give me the results. One question he says they didn't ask him is, oddly, whether or not he fixed games.
I'm looking forward to seeing the results. I followed up with his P.R. team after the interview. Initially, they said we'd have it by the end of the week. Now they're saying they'll release it in January, with a lot of other information to substantiate his claims.
