>>64834415 Wrong Vikings game to imply it was fixed. If anything, I would assume based on lines and what vegas wanted that the Vikings would be the team they would try to have win (general public pounded Seahawks -6 and pros pounded Vikings).
If you are going to imply the Vikings were cheated out of a win by some fixed game, you should probably refer to the bountygate game.
>>64834532 I've often reccomended to people not to get too strong of a bro bond with any one person because the innevitable heartbreak that comes with losing a best friend through marriage is litterally more depressing than any breakup can ever be.
The NFL is rigged and the Seahawks/Pats Owl was supposed to be the "legend killer" final nail in the coffin for the Patriots dynasty and the jumpstart for the Hawks dynasty, but no one told Malcolm Butler and he ruined everything. Roger Goodell was so furious he assumed Tommy B masterminded the scheme and used Deflategate as a way to get back at him.
What people don't understand is that the rigging is selectively done. There's only a few times a game where they try to slant the gamex and that's more so usually to give boring games an exciting finish or moment to keep them in the news and popular culture than to actually effect the outcome.
Because of this, the predetermined desire that the rigging has doesn't always go as planned. Other times it does.
Also, there's a good chance none of the players are in on it. So for example, Walsh's kick was probably just a bad kick. Last year at the owl however, while I don't think Wilson was TRYING to throw an int, I do believe the powers that be dictated that the play be a throw simply because the chance of a turn over was much higher with one happening.
>>64834645 Pretty much everyone acknowledges that the decision to throw the ball last year was part of Paul Allen's scheme to turn the team into a Wilson-centric QB offense and get away from Lynch/Sherman being the faces of the team due to their poor media fiascos and the fact that having a QB as the center of your success story is always easy for marketing.
>>64834532 >getting married in the 20s Risky >getting married in the EARLY 20s Divorce guaranteed
26 is the absolute earliest you should be getting married these days. This isn't the 60s anymore. If you haven't literally lived with your f2f for at least 2 years and dated for at least 4, then you're jumping the gun. Even if you're high school sweethearts and are now like 22/23, you still don't know if you're ready to take on the modern world together.
>>64834532 You have to convince him to divorce her. But make it subtle. You don't want to see his child to grow up be a liberal vegan faggot. Next she's going to claim that the son is trans. Get your buddy back. Save his future son
>>64834832 >They're students in law school. Still assholes >They had to do it during break but after the holidays. No they didn't. They could wait until spring like normal people. They're assholes because they imposed on all of their guests (who also have time limitations on their breaks) and effectively said "we want you to give up the end of your break and also forego one of the best weekends in football and possibly travel through very inhospitable weather in order to attend our wedding" Fuck them. If your friend weren't a spineless beta fuccboi he'd have her to wait until May-August which is the traditional season for weddings.
>>64834532 shes going to make him choose between you and her eventually and hes obviously going to choose her since he seems like a bitch nigga if hes going along with her plans for him, just drop that nigga now save yourself some trouble
>People so mad at Seattle when they win people suggest NFL is rigged
Honestly though, I would have taken the Vikings on the spread even though I'm a hawksfag. It's kind of dumb to think a playoff game with a home dog isn't going to be close. Especially with the weather playing in Minnys favor
>>64834608 Don't worry the fix is in this year and the us12s will get another ring, defeating the jobber Broncos again. The Broncos literally only exist to put over other teams in the Super Bowl. The dynasty starts here.
>>64834495 English names are shit all over. From nigger names to hippie names to whatever type of faggot names their kid Dakota to the ones in that picture, the English speaking world has lost the ability to name kids. Expect to go to the doctor when you are 90 and have Dr. Friendliness Brown-Rychel-Jones operate on you.
>>64835017 This, I don't like seattle myself but if anyone thinks the NFL is rigged I'll point to Manning's last superbowl any day of the week. Why in the world would you rig a game to be an uninteresting stomp in the fucking Super Bowl?
>>64835037 The Broncos have a contract that obligates them to get fucking raped in the owl once per decade to promote the idea of fair play in the NFL. In return the Broncos were given a couple Super Bowls themselves in the 90s, and will be supplied with more guaranteed in the future. The Broncos getting assfucked gave rise to one of the new biggest fanbases in the NFL, the Seakeks, which NFL marketing was told was the new team on the rise with the millenials. The NFL then found it prudent to give them instant success, and now they have made a shitload on Seakek jerseys and ticket sales.
The Broncos always have an established fanbase, they don't have to worry about their fans not showing up. Building new markets of fanbases is top priority, and that is why the Panthers will win this year for the black/sjw crowd. Tag me, this is all clear as day.
>all these casuals pretending its an absurdity that the viqueens lost
they aren't even a good fucking team at all. Adrian Butterson is over the hill and "Sleep Tight Memey" is nothing but a poor game manager who will be a career backup after the hype wears off in 2 years.
>>64835278 okay mateo. When the Panthers win this year and have a new booming bandwagon fanbase and this trent continues forever come back to me. The Patriots just got one to recharge their fanbase and stay strong, all these shitty small markets don't matter to the NFL. There's a reason New York got two almost impossible wins, they need that New York $$$$$
I don't think this one was rigged. Walsh has choked a lot this year and missed extra points. I've seen some games where the only conclusion I could come to was shit was rigged though. In this game I don't think they cared too much who won. Seattle isn't Superbowl bound.
>>64834415 dude, you can tell both the kicker and the holder choked so fucking hard. Their nerves were probably like jelly knowing there was so much riding on the line on them winnning, and it probably didn't help that Sherman is probably the hungriest defender out on the field.
>>64834471 >There isn't a multi-billion dollar enterprise on earth that leaves its success to chance.
The success of the NFL isn't determined by the winner, so it's not something they are concerned about. Even when the Bucs won in a one sided contest, the ratings and viewers count continued to trend upwards.
So yea, the league has other shit they need to worry about.
>>64834415 Yes. >NFL lawyer Gregg H. Levy said the league is making a narrower argument, as "long as the NFL clubs are members of a unit; if they compete as a unit in the entertainment marketplace ... they should be deemed a single entity" and not subject to antitrust law.
>>64834645 So what, you're suggesting that goodell told Carroll to call a pass and he went with it? So the coaches are in on it? >giving credibility to crackpot conspiracies with less evidence than the hollow earth theory I must be retarded, too.
>>64834673 He missed by a couple of feet. During the week 16 Broncos-bengals game, McManus missed a game winner so fucking badly, I'm not sure if the ball even went through the damn endzone. Do you watch football?
I wouldn't be surprised at all if refs were in on influencing games but not the players, no. There's a lot more that goes on behind the scenes though on the players side such as lax drug testing that the NFL turns a blind eye to.
>>64836939 You're suggesting that the refs are rigging games? Do you realize that the refs went on strike a few years ago, and the NFL let it run damn near halfway into the season before the caved? Do you really think they would risk pissing off people that could easily turn a billion dollar business into a laughing stock overnight over a couple thousand dollars? Surely if this stupid conspiracy theory was true, the refs would be able to prove it easily. If even one pissed off ref let it slip, boom. The league is gone. Anyone who believes the league is rigged is retarded.
>>64836994 Im not suggesting anything, all I'm saying is I wouldn't be surprised at all. I've seen at least 5 different games this year come down to bad red calls and even more TD's taken away. It's been the worst year I've ever seen.
>>64834415 It's not rigged but there's definite favoritism amongst those in power: the refs, the networks, the owners. That Pittsburgh/Cincy game just reinforced it all. If you watch that game, I mean the whole game, not just replays, you can see. Literally everything went the Steelers way. Certain plays weren't replayed, the announcers, the refs, it was just so completely skewed. It's just a joke at this point. The role and power the refs have in determining the outcome of the game. Referees calls can't be reviewed. Like when a scuffle happens: at least in the NBA, they review the scuffle and then determine penalties. Why can't they do this in the NFL? The worst part is the best team didn't win. The Bengals were a better team than the Steelers. It's a shame they didn't get a chance to move on because of bullshit calls/no-calls.
>>64838780 I'm not sure of the exact rules (because football rules are completely non-sensical and subjective), but, if a helmet-to-helmet is called on the Shabaz-Bernard hit, does that negate the fumble and recovery afterwards? Or is tacked on to the next play/kickoff?
>>64837023 Haven't been watching football long, eh? Officiating isn't easy.
>>64838905 Risk vs reward. They make enough money without risking it all for a few extra dirty millions, especially considering the amount of people you'd have to involve. Basketball is, because 1 player can decide it (see: Hardin in last years playoffs)
>>64838933 The NFL itself is non-profit. The teams absolutely are for-profit.
Further more, the League is only-non profit because it basically acts as the distributor of revenue. All revenue goes to the NFL, which then distributes the revenue back out to the teams. The NFL doesn't report any profit on its balance sheet, but that's only because the revenues are distributed back out to the teams, not kept by the league.
The NFL itself is therefore legally a non-profit, but the NFL and the 32 franchises it oversees are, as a whole, a for-profit enterprise.
>>64839191 The NFL is a distinct entity from the 32 teams that make up the league.
The NFL itself is non-profit, because they don't keep any of the money they bring in. All of the revenue the NFL takes in covers their own expenses, and then everything thats left is evenly distributed back out to the teams.
The teams are separate entities that do record a profit, and do pay taxes on that profit.
You really need to stop listening to shit leftist dipshits on HuffPo write.
>>64836463 Yup. The way Seattle D has treated FGs is intense. Jumping the line, the way Sherman was 3 inches from the last one. Add in the cold weather? The pressure must've been unreal. To pretend the Seahawks weren't a factor is absurd
>>64834805 Divorce isn't actually as common as people think. The fact that "50% of marriages end in divorce" is misleading. This number is exacerbated by people who have gone through multiple marriages. Your first marriage is more like 20% likely to end in divorce. But if you divorce and re-marry, then 2nd marriages are like 85% likely to end in divorce, and 3rd and beyond are pretty much 99% likely to end in divorce. That doesn't count people remarrying after their spouse dies, just people remarrying after divorce. And then there's bullshit Vegas marriages, marriages for legal convenience like immigration or tax purposes, etc. etc.
Furthermore, if your first marraige makes it past 5 years, the likelyhood of divorce goes down to more like 10%. If you have kids *during your marriage* it goes down even further. If you own a home it goes down even further.
With all that in mind, I married at 23, wife was 19. We'd been dating for 6 months.10 year anniversary is coming up in a month. If you still aren't sure after a few months, the answer is no, so shit or get off the pot. Eitherway your advice is pretty shit.
>>64839949 Because Kam Chancellor can't cover a tight end. He mugged Rudolph because he got beat to fuck. That pass was on point. And Bridgewater turned right back around and disrespected Kam again the very next play.
>>64838898 Way to demonstrated you don't understand football. That was a textbook helmet to helmet penalty. There isn't such thing as 'incidental' but nice try pal. That should have been Bengals ball inside the ten yard line.
>>64839960 Look bud, I'm happy for you that you had a successful marriage at such a young age, but to take that as an objective source and tell everyone they should get married in their early 20s, their prime, is pretty obtuse.
>>64834805 Yea I don't get the whole you can't live together before marriage rule. I had an ex who's parents didn't care we were fucking and even joked about it, but when they found out we lived together, they almost disowned her.
The problem with rigging the NFL is it's a high risk, low reward system for increasing revenue. If the league focused more on creating a level playing field with a draft, salary cap, and free agency than they naturally create tight exciting games with none of the risk of the public finding out they're watching a scripted product.
>>64840333 I didn't say you should get married in your early 20s. I'm disputing the notion that no one should. If you feel like you've got a relationship that marriage material, then fucking do it. If not, then you obviously shouldn't. But don't let bullshit statistics and a bunch of opinionated virgins on a Bhutanese knitting imageboard dissuade you from getting married if its what you really want.
Ben and Brady dominated the AFC with a combined total of 6 rings and 9 appearances. Peyton has three appearance and one ring. His main competition were Ben and Brady.
>Peyton beats Ben and goes onto beat Brady and proves even at old age he's not to be fucked with
>In the landmark 50th anniversary Superbowl with all the special advertising and the GOLD campaign Peyton Manning will get revenge on the Seahawks and ride off into the sunset and people will call him goat again.
This. I mean, in the first half pit got like 8 first down calls. No holding on them, no first down penalties, and then later flags everywhere for touch calls on Cincy.
And then if you look at it with a broader eyes, you'll see how they helped Pitt through their playoff push at the end of the season. Jets were down on ref decisions on all of their games at the same time with huge penalties disparity in all their games. The most glaring being last game where they played the most penalised team in whole NFL, that then never got a single holding in that game.
I don't know. I know that there's too much money in the sport for there to not be some behind the scenes stuff going on, but I don't believe that whole seasons are fixed. Just little things here and there to maybe get people who wouldn't normally care to look up a play or two that people are talking about and the NFL gets a little ad revenue. A good example is last year's playoffs in the Detroit/Dallas game with the weird flag pickup no-call thing that happened. Something was really wrong with that situation, but Dallas just lost the next game anyways.
>>64843348 >I know that there's too much money in the sport for there to not be some behind the scenes stuff going on
The reason there's so much money is because people love the unpredictable nature of sports, if you take that aspect away you risk losing that money, it makes no sense from a business standpoint to put the most integral aspect of your product at risk just so the Cowboys can play another playoff game.
>>64846340 Despite what the NFL tells you, balls do deflate significantly in cold weather, also the laces were out which fucks with kickers heads for some reason. That combined with the pressure of the moment probably caused the missed.
I mean you can say it's not fixed at all but you are wrong. The proof is right there. The nfl is slightly fixed yes. You have to be a complete fucking moron to say no. It's blatantly obvious in some spots especially the compensatory picks. You can't argue that's not a fix
They've never actually revealed the method in which they decide who gets them. We have an "idea" but we actually don't know.
Meaning the nfl gives out extra draft picks using a secret formula. Yes the nfl gives out extra draft picks to teams they want to win. Otherwise they'd reveal the formula, but if they did that, they would lose that control mechanism. Same with penalties being non reviewable. If penalties were reviewable the nfl would lose that control. Same with suspensions.
