NFL Is Rigged: Wild Card Round
 
So the results are in, you can check how some of our participants did in the week 18 thread here: http://chiefsplanet.com/BB/showthrea...341721&page=44

So LV wins out over L.A in the "New Stadium Bowl".

Steelers and Big-Rape get rigged into the tournament at the sacrifice of Taylor, Wentz and the Colts. Baltimore clearly fell out of favor at some point with the NFL and they're out. So lets re-analyze moving forward.

**Note** A mod asked that i keep it all in one thread, but that thread is so far lost in the weeds that it's hard to get proper interaction and stay on topic. Dont be surprised if this thread gets merged.

So, assuming the NFL is rigged, what's your theory on this week's events? What gets rigged, how is it rigged and who is doing the rigging and why?

Patriots vs Bills: Patriots take this one for the East Coast market. This is more than an AFCE WC game, this is a battle of the upper east markets. Lets be real here, Buffalo isn't cared about by anyone outside of Buffalo. NFL isn't going to tune out the entire AFC east coast in the WC round. And BB is the ultimate NFL insider who took one for the team last season. The NFL will look to pay him back this weekend. BB Winning here sets us up for a divisional round matchup against a team with a similar style and coach in Vrabel. Vrabel vs BB will generate huge ratings.

Raiders vs Bengals: Raiders win in the "upset" *chuckles* here. Now we see why they were rigged into the playoffs: To set up a divisional showdown with the Chiefs. Raiders vs Chiefs will generate significant ratings in the playoffs.

Chiefs vs Steelers: The Steelers are merely a pawn here. Their sole existence in the playoffs occurred as a byproduct in order to produce the matchups we have this weekend. Expect some weird Chiefs shenanigans where we purposely turn the ball over and the play calling looks suspect at times. That's to keep it close for the sake of ratings.

AFC Divisional Round:

Chiefs vs Raiders
Titans vs Patriots

SF vs Dallas: SF takes this one. It'll be a thriller. Jerry Jones has been playing nice for decades now, but his trigger finger is itching for a playoff win. It won't be here, but the lords will make sure it's at least close enough to keep his fan base hooked going into next season. Dallas has to lose this one. The NFL does not want the Rams headed to GB in the Divisional.

Rams vs Cardinals: L.A Market. 'Nuff said. The NFL got exactly what they wanted in this Cali vs AZ west coast showdown.

Buccs vs Philly: Tom Brady. Epstein. Dark magic and hexes. Philly doesn't stand a chance here. I mean, the game may stay close, but they have no real shot at winning this. Best bet of the week.

NFC Divisional Round:
Greenbay vs SF
Buccs vs Rams

With the recent death of John Madden, this starts to make a lot of sense. But there is also something to be said for keeping us fans on our toes and not making anything TOO obvious. For that reason, and because Burrow and Chase are budding superstars, Cincinnati wins this game.

Patriots @ Bills: The Bills have an exciting offense and are just more fun to watch than the Patirots.The NFL can't have Bill Belichick's Pats only throwing the ball a few times in the playoffs, which is something he's shown a willingness to do this season, and against these very Bills. Buffalo wins this game.

Eagles @ Bucs: Upsets are a key part of the NFL brand, and this one would be huge. The NFL has a soft spot for Philly and its gigantic TV market. Tom Brady goes down and a Cindarella is born.

49ers @ Cowboys: This is a ratings dream for the NFL with two storied franchises from huge TV markets with national fanbases facing off. The NFL has its eye on Mike McCarthy's eventual return to Lambeau Field in a juicy storyline that pits him against his former star QB, Aaron Rodgers. The Cowboys win this game.

Cardinals @ Rams: The Rams are the super team this year and have mortgaged their future in recent trades. Star power rules in the modern NFL, and no one has more than L.A. Arizona doesn't stand a chance against the second-largest TV market in the league.

Steelers @ Chiefs: No one likes watching Ben Roethlisberger, not even Steelers fans. Kansas City wins easily.

It's completely reasonable to have a new thread each week on this. As if we have so many awesome threads on the front page that one more football-related thread is gonna mess things up.

Never bet against Brady...never bet on anything concerning him.


"According to the 41-year-old quarterback, the other equally important part of the equation is the pregame rituals that his wife, Gisele Bundchen, has him go through. In the days after the Patriots' 13-3 Super Bowl win over the Rams, Brady described some of those rituals.

First, Brady noted that Gisele makes an 'altar' for him at every game.

"I've learned a lot from my wife over the years," Brady said. "She's so about the power of intention, and believing things that are really going to happen and she always makes a little altar for me at the game, because she just wills it so much. So she put together a little altar for me that I could bring"


Sounds harmless right....I'm sure he HAS learned quite a bit over the years.

FTR, the main point on that is we have plenty of "NFL is rigged" threads that are mostly a platform for the same few people to spew their garbage, so having it all in one place makes it that much easier for people to go to thread tools and ignore.

Not that an extra few clicks to ignore one new thread a week is the end of the world either.... and this does at least have a different spin on it that will hopefully help prevent the same old garbage debate each week.

Is this the thread that gets me into the mod lounge?

Depends on if you can crack the NFL's code to rigging games.

So will you answer my witch questions in this thread?

What you're saying is, no matter how powerful the NFL and Vegas are, they are still powerless against Brady's wife's voodoo magic.

Makes "follow the money" and the "Jesuits" kinda pointless, eh?

St. Patty's Fire 01-12-2022 02:24 PM

Buffalo over NE bc Buffalo is a low key big tv market

Chiefs over Steelers because Mahomes is the golden boy

Cowboys over 49ers because Prescott’s girlfriend is a wicken

Rams over Cardinals because “the league wants LA to succeed….the dark powers are all in on LA teams”

Raiders over Bengals bc you need at least 1 upset or the peasants start to suspect things are steered

Bucs over Eagles cuz Tom Brady

No more conspiracies', the cream will rise to the top in the playoffs (well unless you are The Saints, then you just get hosed)

I'm going to bet that 2 teams will play and then one of them will win. That cycle will repeat until after the Super Bowl. Mysteriously, after the Super Bowl is over all of the teams will stop playing and there will be no more games - conspiracy?

DrunkBassGuitar 01-12-2022 02:25 PM

Gonna try something here

I'm going to pick randomly and come up with a narrative based on the randomness and see how I do. This would probably be better to do during the regular season but I just thought of it.

I'll have a random number generator pick a number between 1-100, 1-50 is home team wins, 51-100 is the visitor wins.

My expectation is that I should do about 50-50.

We'll compare how I do with anyone making predictions based on rigging.
