Question by xtrabigs: What exactly are the limitations placed on referees in regards to gambling?
Like, are they only allowed to gamble on some things (obviously not the NHL) or some sports, casino games alright?

Im bringing this up due to the Tim Donaghy situation in the NBA.

How about the other sports like the NFL, MLB or NBA in regards to their refs gambling rules.

Do they all have the same basic limitations?

They are not allowed to gamble because it can breed debts and strange bedfellows which can lead to game fixing.
Also, NBA referees are not even allowed to tell anyone, even their families, their working schedule of upcoming games they are supposed to ref. I just know this from reading up on the Donaghy situation.
