Is the NFL fixing games?

Carolina vs San Fran game should be looked at the way this San Fran fan looked at the Seattle game.  I'd dare say that Carolina had as many calls go against them as San Fran had go against them in Seattle.

 

I hate to sound like a whiner, but this San Fran fan did a great job of exposing several horrible calls that made the difference in the NFC Championship game.

Haven't watched yet.

That said, San Fran was one tipped pass away from winning. If that is how the almighty NFL rigs a game then they suck at it.

I think it is a matter of the game getting too fast for part-time officials. Look at the instant replay process.  Why should the ref stop the game, go to the sideline and stick his head in what looks like a peep show at a 1930's carnival, watch video for 90 seconds, and then return to the field and explain his ruling to the crowd?  Why do we have chains instead of infra-red lasers to measure first downs?  Why don't the noses of the football have microchips so we can tell if it broke the plane in a pile up? 

 

Fairness is attainable. They choose not to have it that way.  That tells me that they are willing to accept preventable mistakes as a part of the game.  Some may think they ENCOURAGE it.

 

 Officiating stirs emotions and emotions is what stimulates interest.  Griping about the officials is more common at the Monday moring water cooler than the State of the Union Address.  Why else would you not want better officiating? 

 

I have to think this is a fixable problem that is intentionally unfixed.

If you watch the youtube video, it's pretty evident that Seattle would not be in the game if all these calls had not gone their way.  Here is the full article.

I agree with the conclusion of that article. "Ultimately, the video in question had too many baseless claims, inaccuracies and hyperbole to be taken too seriously."

 

 

 

It's hilarious to see San Fran whine about calls after the game in Carolina.

I am not going to bother watching the video but can you please give me the reason the NFL would have an interest in assuring a team from the bottom half of the league in market size would reach the Superbowl instead of a top 5 market size team?

I saw about 50% homerizims and 50% actual blown calls.  The entire clock situation is really baffling too.

I don't think our game or their game was fixed.

 

I do think the refereeing in the NFL sucks and is getting worse not better.  It was a trend all season in various games.

    • I have to put what others think and ask for help. My mom has been in the hospital for 32 days with no end insight. My dad, my sister and I have been with mom everday especially dad since she fell ill March 22. The medical bills are starting to come in and dad will need help. My sister and I have lost out on money from this but we are going to be okay. Dad's fed insurance will run out soon for what is going to be paid for. He is okay for personally due to having numerous hours saved from working at Cherry Point but the medical expenses are going to be astronomical. March 22 dad took mom to urgent care which tested positive with A and B flu. Her vitals were bad at CCHC so they called an ambulance to send her to Carolina East hospital. Dad was told this, so he went met her there in the ER. They waited 3 hours until they were seen by a doctor who then did not do anything else besides give mom 2 Motrin to take and him saying so she was sent to the ER with just the flu like no x rays nor anything else performed. No tamiflu, no nothing. Dad called CCHC begging for help, for tamiflu which they finally wrote out a prescription for mom. Dad had a family friend to pick up the tamiflu for them since mom was not good enough to be left by herself. For over a day her fever was 103.8. Every 4 to 6 hours dad altered between tylenol and ibuprofen to get her fever down. March 26 fever broke and she started to get a little better. She plateaued Monday and started to regress Tuesday and then Wednesday even more with a terrible cough nonstop which he was going to take her back to the doctors on Thursday. Thursday morning dad calls me at 645am to meet him at the hospital in which I did. Mom did not recognize me anf she looked like death. Thank God no one was in the ER at Vidant at the time. She was taken in instantly. Come to find out she was suffering a heart attack then the x rayed her to find both lungs filled with pneumonia severely. Then as intubation happened and all to her into ICU she went into full shock. She was on heavy sedation for 21 days before having a trach performed. She has suffered many set backs from coming off of sedation. Delirium and having the life team to come in. I have seen my mom on the edge of passing more than my fair share. Then come to find out ARDS stage 3 has hit mom and has slowed her recovery. She is at 20% lung capacity and pulmonary fibrosis is slowly setting in. Either it will be severe or mild but her lungs are still adjusting. Either way the doctor at New Bern ER did not properly treat mom and she now has a death sentence due to negligence. I need a recommendation for a malpractice lawyer. I need advise in general. I do not know who to turn too or how to handle this because I have never gone through this before. I have some connections I have made work that I will be exercising tomorrow. Please help in any form. PM or whatever. Huddle I ask humbly. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers. Cherry Point told my dad to take as long as needed and that they will help him some but he will need more than that. My sis started a go fund me.  https://www.gofundme.com/3povwn4 Thank you to all who read this.
