StarCraft South Korean pro players accused of throwing games for money

They are calling it the equivalent of the "Black Sox" scandal in baseball, only there's no Charlie Sheen involved in the movie version (at least we hope not). News reports from South Korea (and translated by other sites) indicate that a number of the StarCraft pro players in that country have been accused of gambling violations including intentionally throwing games for money.

As some of you may know, the original StarCraft is pretty much the national sport in South Korea with some pro players paid and treated like the US treats basketball players and the rest of the world treats soccer players. It's currently unknown if this scandal will have any effect of the release of Blizzard's sequel StarCraft II.
