Default Have you ever thought NFL games were rigged?

Have you ever thought NFL games were rigged?

If you ever have bet on NFL games or even watched the point spreads.

Or

Just watching the games with out betting.

Like Raiders Vs. Pats fumble that wasn't called even after replay and the whole 9-11 thing when the Pats won the Superbowl!

Sometimes I wonder about games and blown calls

Maybe the Zebras have money on the games?

The games can't be rigged because jobs are on the line every day.

Just sometimes I wonder and as the saying goes

Things that make you go Hummm.

IMO, you making something out of nothing.

Bad calls are inevitable, but saying it's rigged is derived from an awful lot of fabrication.

No, just saying...

Wasn't really my belief as I stated

People will loose jobs if they loose.

Just saying sometimes I wonder

The NFL itself is always on the lookout for things like this.

In Super Bowl XIV (1979 season) for example, Rams kicker Frank Corral missed an extra point and the Rams, who opened as 11 1/2-point underdogs, lost 31-19 to Pittsburgh. The league did actually conduct an investigation, but found no evidence of any wrongdoing.

Think of how many people it would take to "rig" a game, and to keep quiet about it?

The NFL is multi-BILLION dollar industry. No way it's rigged. That's oliver Stone type thinking on your part.

One.

An interception here, an incomplete pass on third down there.

Here's yet another reason the NFL would seem to be clean:

No one ever says, "Boy, that game sure seemed to be rigged in my team's favor!" People only wonder or make that accusation when THEIR team is gypped.

Akron would have gotten into a bowl game if Michigan State beat Hawaii on Saturday. Instead, Akron is the only bowl-eligible team left out. While I'm very disappointed, I'm taking a sabattical from the Akron Zips message boards, because everyone there is convinced the refs were on the take to get Hawaii into a bowl at home. They are petitioning the NCAA or something, blah blah blah...I'm too disgusted by the We-lost-it-must-be-a-conspiracy! attitude.

Well how about this

MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL

DALLS Vs. Seattle

K. Johnson catches what seems to be a TD catch but actually wasn't. Less then 2 mins to go so Seattle can not throw a Red Flag out to challenge and for some reason the Refs up in the booth do not take a time-out to look at it.

Maybe not rigged but I think Zebras and the guys upstairs have money on the games.


Well about to many people knowing if a game was rigged....

The government says Area 51 is made up and doesn't exist
Or Roswell.....

The NFC is completely rigged this year. I paid everyone off just so I could have the joy of seeing my team in the Super Bowl once in this lifetime so I can die a happy man. I mean what else could be a logical explanation? :lol:

Look not only does everyone hate you guys from (fill in your region or area here), but were gonna GET you, m******f*****r's! In fact, we hate you so bad, we're gonna fix it so you don't win s**t 'cause we have the power 'and we HATE you!

Since that's how (everywhere else but my region or area) feels, of course the games are rigged.

Well, if your gonna try and use that Keyshawn play as an example, then guess what? EVERY sport is "fixed" then, since refs blow or miss calls in every sport, because guess what? They're human and make mistakes.

This isn't boxing, where a group of people PICK a winner and can be bought off. Or wrestling, where the outcome is predetermined.

The notion that the NFL is fixed is crazy enough, but to try and back up that assertion with some of the examples you cite is boarderline lunacy.
