Reasons Why the NFL is Fixed for Profit

[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.

Obviously many people will never be convinced of this. My FIL and I got in a heated argument about this on Thanksgiving. In his mind, I'm just bitter and jaded because my team sucks and so I'm making excuses. The End. I don't think there's anything I could show him or any argument I could make to convince him otherwise, and the ironic thing is that he's a retired high level executive for a well known company and should damn well know how the game is played. Perhaps denial is just beat into such people - at least outside the boardroom.

I sent him a copy of this article. I doubt if he reads past the headline before he deletes it.

Yeah, this is more reasonable than the giant conspiracy tale other people seem to be convinced of.

This. And my objection isn't to his style of writing (which is awful). It's to the feast conclusions he draws from crumbs of evidence.

it took a few years but I finally convinced a good friend of mine.I hate to think it goes on but there's just too much coincidence for it not to.

For instance the talk is already heating up about a Manning vs. Luck play-off possibility or how about this MAIN EVENT a Manning vs. Manning Super Bowl which would have never been possible if...

1.Lil bro doesn't demand a trade and get traded to an NFC team thus forcing Peyton's hand later to play for another AFC team when he clearly was wanted by Jim Harbaugh in San Francisco and which made a helluva lot more sense then.

I've already said it numerous times but if that happens it'll be the first time I miss the big game,no hosting a party,no nothing.That said the hype and the money involved on betting would be imo the biggest ever.

Frazod truly believes the NFL is against the Chiefs. He thinks the refs always give calls to Denver and never give any calls to the Chiefs. Aren't you a Cubs fan too? Your teams just haven't been as fortunate as other teams, it's not fixed.

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?
How exactly can you blow a teams doors off when your 3rd and 6 for a 70 yard gain, is now 3rd and 16 after holding?
It sucks the life out a team.
I don't think many games are fixed, but I think it happens.
