Tim Donaghy Sentencing

So... recently Ex-NBA ref Tim Donaghy was sentenced to 15 months in prison for the whole gambling/cheating ordeal. I thought he should be sentenced for a longer time in prison like 5-6 years because what he did was absolute blasphemy. I mean, think about it, paying off a ref in playoff games... that seriously skews things up. I was reading the Yahoo Sports article and I quote

"Donaghy didn’t stop there: In June, he marred the NBA finals by making fresh accusations that the league routinely encouraged refs to ring up bogus fouls to manipulate results but discouraged them from calling technical fouls on star players to keep them in games and protect ticket sales and television ratings."

Wow... now he's preaching to other refs to make crappy calls... thats the paragon of a messed up person. What do you guys think about it? Here is a link to the article on Yahoo:
