I'll recognize it because it won't be rigged.

Neither was the Broncos win.

you wrong. stupid and wrong. 

NFL = WWE.  It's all rigged. especially high profile games and nationally televised games.

See Monday night for latest example.

Packers RB falling down and not scoring. His handlers had the under and he took a knee for them.

Refs bad. Kept the game within the point spread for Bookies. 

Sports betting running the game.

But you go on keeping your head in the sand.

You ain't about that life. you ain't woke yet.

Riiiiiight.

I'm sure 53 plus players and a bunch of coaches and others who lose money when games are lost (per team) not to mention a bunch of billionaire owners with massive egos would all willingly participate in a system that rigs the results.

Likewise, I'm sure through 100 Years of football, everybody has just accepted this system and nobody has ever lodged a complaint about it.

The whole "NFL is rigged" ideas just based in sour grapes and tinfoil hat theories. There's no substance to it at all.

The Super Bowl was lost because they had Wade Phillips and we had Mike Shula— period.

Shula wouldn’t adjust to Wades relentless run blitz attack and that’s what lost the game.  That and Cam letting it get to him and losing his poo.

shula was like the John Fox of offense. If we had still had Chud or Norv then we win that Super Bowl.

Not to piss in your cornflakes, but the RB not scoring is a strategic move. GB was behind by 2, score a TD, go up by 5, but there's still time on the clock to return a kick for a TD or a hail mary. Stop, run the clock down to nothing, kick the FG, game over.

Stop it.  You're killing my market for tin foil hats man.

I'll say it can be influenced with referees. There were a myriad of questionable calls in SB 50 and even more no calls. While it's not proof of anything, I find Talib's tossing of Philly Brown by the facemask and the subsequent 25k fine disgusting. Talib came out after the game and said he deliberately tried to hurt PB and take him out of the game. And the NFL laughed and said good job. Even Broncos fans I was with when it happened said he should have been ejected. There were calls that were so blatantly wrong it absolutely influenced the outcome, and by the NFLs reaction, it would give one reason to think they approved.

That's what they want you think.

In the overwhelming majority of games that I've seen, the bad calls go both ways. They may or may not even out, but there's enough on both sides to accept that it's not "rigged".

As to dirty hits, pretty sure some other fans would point to some of Thomas Davis' big hits that weren't flagged as evidence of the league favoring is.

What if the Broncos offered Von Miller and a couple 1st round picks for Cam? Would you take it?

I'll agree that a majority of games this is true. But in big games, especially one like SB50, I absolutely believe that the league influenced calls to nudge toward the desired outcome.

I wish people would actually think about how ridiculous it would be for the NFL to actually rig games.

First of all, this would have to be coordinated with a large number of people, namely the referees. The more people you have involved in a conspiracy the more likely it is to get out.

Secondly, if it were ever to get out it would absolutely ruin the NFL and cost the owners billions of dollars. The extremely tiny amount of money there is to be gained by rigging games does not even come close to offsetting the high risk it would get out and destroy the league.

There is no chance the NFL is conspiring to fix games. There is always the possibility of a rogue referee like with Donaghy in the NBA but there is definitely no league wide conspiracy. If there was you would think they might try helping the most popular team, the Dallas Cowboys, rather than let them languish in mediocrity for decades.
