The coverage should not amaze you, Pete Rose still gets talked about regularly and that was a long time ago. Gambling on sports by people in sports will also get a lot of coverage because the biggest draw of sports is that the competition is fair and natural. Anything that could take away from that like the potential of fixed games is going to garner bigtime attention.
Also throw in the fact that one of the top 2 greatest players ever is involved and its a huge story.
