[Mod edit: This thread is merged from a multitude of other threads all about this topic. Please try and keep the discussion about the "rigged" NFL here. If this kind of discussion irritates you, please use the "Ignore Thread" feature under "Thread Tools" up and to the right.]

I don't remember if this was ever posted here - if it was, I don't remember it.

Very long, informative, and depressing.

And what do expect everyone to do about this IF they want to be one of your followers? How is the casual football fan going to supposedly bring down the NFL,TV,Mafia and Vegas IF this is all true?
Holding calls, replay downs until you get the correct outcome.

Isn't it amazing that the very year the U.S. suffers the worst terrorist attack ever on its soil that a team called The Patriots goes on to play in and win the Super Bowl and when being introduced prior to the game decides to take the field as one as in United We Stand,Divided We Fall.

Just my .02
That is a silly connection. There are two New York teams that would make much more sense if they were fixing it.

Edit - I see now that this discussion has already happened.

That's all that is needed.

The tuck rule game says it all. If it can happen once it can happen again. Shit, the fact that the Saints won after Katrina should have been another tip. What about the Green Bay/Seattle game this year. It goes on and on.

Manning V Manning, that's all I saying

that's why its a pass happy league, because they know two qb fantasy football leagues are where its at.

Yes, the guy is insane if he thinks they players would be trusted and that everyone plays to a script.

If game fixing is true, all that it would take is one ref in some important games only making a single holding call.

I would suspect that it wouldn't be Bronculi or any of the other attention whores, it would be a non-descript, "nobody cares who he is" guy.

I believe that 99% of the NFL is legit, but some very important calls over the years have been butchered beyond believe.

I want you to show me ONE time a QB pump faked and fumbled but it was ruled a imcomplete pass before the Tuck Rule fiasco.

I won't hold my breath, because it doesn't fucking exist.

Was the rule on the books when they called it? Yep, sure was.

So the rest is just butthurt.

Sorry but the idea the Patriots got in because they have a Minuteman on their helmet is just laughable.
Didn't have one then. It was already the Flying Elvis, a symbol of national unity for all Americans!

Just like if the NBA decided to call traveling correctly against Patrick Ewing on the last shot of a playoff game 7.


Never called it before! But it's in the rules!

Get a clue. :-)

Whoever disagrees and thinks it isn't rigged needs to do some more research. Of course it's not going to stop me from watching the games, it's entertainment but at the same time you really have to take in that the NFL is all about gambling and dirty refs and dirty owners. Players get paid to drop balls in big games and fuck up, sooner or later, we're gonna have a situation on our hands in the NFL where someone is going to speak out about this. The NFL claims it's never rigged a game but it's just too obvious to me nowadays, since this chiefs season was so horrible. I would mostly watch other games and try and see how rigged it was, doesn't anyone else get how fucked up it was when we had those replacement officials, that was all for a fucking story.

The reason the Patriots got in is the same as the Steelers. Their owners are crooks.

A manning vs manning superbowl would not be the biggest cash cow, Eli is boring. Now if it was Brady and Rodgers, that'd be a different story.

It's supposedly been going on since the 1950's yet suddenly NOW we're going to have a situation on our hands?

There's 2 possibilities here:

1) They've kept it quiet for 60 years and it will continue to remain quiet or

2) It doesn't happen with the frequency some people would like to believe.
