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.

Yeah, I agree.

You'd have to be completely naive to think cheating doesn't happen. There are always going to be outcomes that are affected by outside forces, whether it's gambling, politics, or any number of things.

But to suggest the NFL is COMPLETELY faked, ala the WWE? No, I don't believe that.

The tickets to the last game I saw were free, too. I haven't bought any official NFL merchandise in years, and now I'm not even buying the knockoff crap on eBay.

Following this team has been a major part of my life for decades - that won't dry up and blow away overnight. At this point, I don't watch a fraction of the games that I used to, and when I do, I'm generally not paying much attention to them.

At this point, I don't believe the Chiefs will ever win another Super Bowl UNLESS they manage to land somebody who turns into a bankable star that will sell merchandise outside our tiny fanbase. There's just no money in it for the league.
That's an honest answer to my question. I respect that.

I sent him a copy of this article. I doubt if he reads past the headline before he deletes it.
There's some validity to this line of thinking. I know you don't want to hear it but there's a hint of truth to it.

Yeah, that's what I was getting at too...

At some points, his case is compelling. And at other points, it really sounds like this:

Some truth, and some speculation and conjecture.

I do think there is an element to fixing games (the steelers/chargers mentioned was totally fixed imo) but I really do not think players don't care about winning and just do whatever they're told. I think most of that happens between owners, refs, and the NFL. Players are pawns.

I don't think it always works out the way the NFL wants either, but there's manipulation going on there to influence the results.

They've had plenty of chances and not produced one yet. I wouldn't worry about it.

Yeah the players not wanting to win is idiotic. He sites that they get paid either way, which simply isn't true. If players don't do their best and try to win they are out of a job.

Some of it is interesting, and some of it just silly. If everything in the NFL is fixed, and Tebow so massively profitable, then why was Tebow shipped off to New York to do absolutely NOTHING?

Some of the stuff I have to accept on face value, or not. Others are true, and many others make no sense or don't add up. It would take hours to really analyze it all point by point.

Bottom line -- doubt it. Very much doubt it.

So.....the NFL waited 8 years and several neck surgeries to get Manning vs. Manning in the main event? That makes ANY sense to you?

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.
