John Howard lived in Chicago and in the San Francisco Bay Area, two areas with enthusiastic football fans. While teaching history, his love for sports and an avid season ticket holder led him to spend several years coaching basketball and football. Like many fans he thought bad calls changed the outcome of some games – albeit few in number. All sports rely on the integrity of referees and with a touch of imagination came the thought of what would happen if any one referee purposely overlooked infractions or intentionally made bad calls. With retirement came the story: Questionable Calls.

Professor and referee Todd Jensen is video taped in bed with Darla, a young student hired by a gambling gang. He calls games to favor their bets, but when he wants to marry her she turns to Detective Dymond for help. The gamblers fear their exposure and a clever hi man, Angelo, is sent to kill her. Dymond uses her to set a trap for the dangerous killer while news of fixed football games creates a media blitz. During the fury of player and fan demands to correct scores of games officiated by Jensen, Angelo escapes Dymond's trap.
