Proof that professional sports leagues manipulate, script and outright rig the results of their own games

The NFL has far more to lose by not following its own rules then going for the "fix". Just ask MLB.

It is the different between ethics and morality.

Feels a bit weakly argued to me. But the answer is simple though. If you don`t like sports go and watch something else like your endless "reality" shows which, of course, are never fixed... :)

"Paul Allen bought that Lombardi trophy for the Seahawks this year, no doubt about it."

Huh? HOW?

By paying Peyton and every Bronco to play like s.hit?

Also, 99.999% of sporting events on TV are boring and interrupt the shows I want to watch. I don`t know why people feel any affinity with their "home" team, they are simply a collection of millionaires paid to perform in these entertainment performances.

He doesn`t say sports ARE fixed, the author is pointing out that the big four professional sports are businesses, entirely concerned about profit, and have little concern for sportsmanship or the fans. And, if the commissioners and owners decided it was financially beneficial for them to fix games, they would likely do so and there would be few, if any, consequences to those actions.

None of this should be a surprise to anyone.

However, admittedly, I have never seen the appeal of professional or collegiate sports.

Three people can`t keep a secret and this person wants us to believe that at the very least thousands of people are in on some kind of fix.

No it doesn`t, seems very relevant if you`re going to rabble on about some conspiracy in pro sports.

Still, if you want to watch the championship game of another game you still have that option. Gov money just gives ridiculous amounts of air time (and other insane perks).

DromEd has it right - loser hates sports, goes on Internet rant, has fun with fonts and colors and stuff.

How does the fix happen? Are only some players in on it and not others? Trying to do this seems a lot more complicated than just letting meatheads clobber each other and reap the billions of dollars.

Right on, no surprise. I never liked the `big sports` since it became obviously in love with money. Heck, it`s been pretty obvious since the 90s
