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.

Damn, I was coming in here to call Manning V Manning in the big dance, but someone beat me to it.

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.
EXACTLY.

I absolutely HATE that defensive PI is a spot foul. that right there can alter a game. Shit, I think teams who are desperate to move the ball, toss up a huge pass and hope for PI more than they hope for the catch.

That's not a conspiracy though, that's just good football strategy.

I don't think they use that to alter games, it's just that they suck at making the call. It is way to exposed for everyone to see.


The announcers say it all the time,"Holding can be called on every play." Think about it.

It's funny how our resident Denver and NE fans are backing the NFL. Their teams directly won from two horrendous calls in playoff games that led to Superbowl championships.

It's more the harsh realization of the way things are that's made me this way. Oh well. At least I still have baseball. It may not be perfect, but small market teams still have a shot occasionally.

Fair enough.

Just make sure you don't change your mind when Geno Smith is holding up a Chiefs #1 jersey this April...

Yeah, I can't wait until the next 13-3 bye one-and-done playoff effort.

Yup.

These guys take HUGE risks, and they have an enormous passion for the game. I don't buy that at all.

So is the downfield contact rule.

3rd and 17... Manning drops back... pass incomplete.

OH BUT WAIT! There's a flag.

Illegal contact, on a defensive back who barely touched someone, 5 yard penalty and free first down.

Some teams get a LOT of these bail out calls.

That and a lot of guys have incentives built into their contracts for winning playoff games/Super Bowls.
