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.
