[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.

This completely fucks up football for me.

The tuck rule, the Saints winning after Katrina, the sack that wasn't called that resulted in a fumble and a touchdown by the Chiefs, but it was called back and the Steelers win in overtime. The fieldgoals that aRE chip ins for good kickers, but somehow they shank it wide left or right. THE EIGHT DOLLAR BEERS...............FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK

This makes Durt sad.

Maybe if Kansas City gets wiped out by an F-5 they'll toss us one. :-)

How fast? He was in the grasp and forward progress had stopped. They waited nearly 3 seconds to blow the whistle.

That rule has been in place for nearly 60 years. Get over it.

Really I don't give two shits, even though magically we did get fucked over by the refs in that game.

Like I haven't seen it before?

Is the Tuck Rule a whacky, weird rule that doesn't come up often? Yes. IS IT A REAL RULE? Yes. Are many butthurt over it many years later? Yes. Is it karmic redemption for the phantom roughing the passer call when the Patriots played the Raiders in the 70s? I'd like to think so.

What's horrendous about the call?

Here's the rule:

Also, if the player has tucked the ball into his body and then loses possession, it is a fumble.

You might not like the call, but the rule is the rule. Is it a crap rule? Maybe, but that's a different argument.

How does Eli forcing a trade to NYG "thus force Peyton's hand later to play for another AFC team"? To set up the pre-ordained Super Bowl you're talking about? The one that COULD HAVE (but didn't) happen when he had excellent teams in Indy?

And if Manning vs. Manning DOESN'T happen, does that prove that your pulling this completely out of your ass, or do you just forget about it and move on to the next conspiracy theory?

Inquiring minds want to know.
First off I realize it's a conspiracy theory and if it doesn't happen I'll still own up to my comments because I believe shit does go on to give the fans a match for the ages if you will.Now to answer your question what's 8 years the boys have won 3 SB's in that time and Archie would now like nothing more than to see his boys face off in the big game and yes I believe the NFL would love it too,by forcing his hand I think Peyton chose a possible route to see a SB for the ages vs. being a clear cut favorite and signing with the 49er's.

Theory yes but you have to agree a Manning vs. Manning SB would be one of if not the largest cash cow the NFL might ever see and oh the marketing possibilities,brother vs. brother,2 SB wins vs. 1 SB win,the game to settle who is the best etc.

Yep, and you saw glaring evidence of it as soon as the real refs came back.

And would have been last year, or the year before, or the year before that...
