If NFL games are fixed, our team sucks at fixing games. You'd think we'd have a few more wins.

Re: is the NFL shady or legit ?

I wouldn't be surprised at all if there was some match fixing in the NFL. It's happened in the NBA and throughout the soccer world, why not NFL? Are they so morally superior to every other sport that they're above it? Doubtful.

That being said, I don't think the entire product is guided like this article implies. It seems to make the argument that SB champs are preordained before the season even starts, lol.

I hear Scully and Mulder are working the case. The truth is out there.

So I can buy a super bowl but I can't buy my way through drug or player suspensions .

Re: is the NFL shady or legit ?

these rules make it convenient to bend games by officials

Now, here are some plays in a game that are non-reviewable:
•Penalties. Under no circumstance can a penalty call be reviewed.
•Forward progress. It's a judgement call on the field by the officials.
•A fumble after the whistle has blown. At that point, the play is considered dead and can't be reviewed.
•Any kick going above the uprights
•Inadvertent whistles
•Recovery of a fumble in the field of play

Actually I think the 2 fumble rules are wrong now. I am pretty sure both are reviewable. BUT, from a tinfoil perspective, having non-reviewable plays actually makes the game harder to fix. If you have non-reviewable plays you have to set more tracks in motion to affect the outcome of a game. Once plays are reviewable, you can fix it with the replay official, and steer games in your direction by gradual changes.

Re: is the NFL shady or legit ?

you guys keep saying 'fix'. there is no fix, the NFL is legally allowed to manipulate games as they choose because they are an entertainment business as government has said so.

the Pats made it to a conference championship last year with 14 signed rookies. I'm sorry but Brady and Belichick aren't that good LOL and its their 14th year of success including the SB with the Packers before the 14 year run.

Then why are you a fan? What's the point of fandom if it is all determined in a smoky back room?

Why would they manipulate to give one team a 14 year run? What other teams would approve of that? Where is the head of the manipulation, and what is it's designed goal. Certainly it would be more entertaining to watch Belicheck fall from the heights, or Brady get stood up on the field and then by Giselle.

The NFL probably could do it if it wanted, but fans and media would root it out, and the NFL would lose it's fan base. Heck when spygate came out, there was a huge outcry, and when they put in bad refs the fans outrage at the poor officiating certainly played a role in bringing the regular officials (bad as they can be) back to the field.

The NFL has a high value product by letting the human forces of the team game play out on the field. It would be a fool's errand to increase a small percentage of entertainment value at the expense of the (pretty strong) integrity of the game.

Re: is the NFL shady or legit ?

To many people would have to keep their pie hole zipped. That's the only reason I'm not a believer. Same with the Kennedy conspiracy theory. If more than one is involved or gets pinched they always talk. Httr.
