There isn't a multi-billion dollar enterprise on earth that leaves its success to chance.

The NFL is no exception. People should stop pretending the NFL is the ONE three-comma corporation in the US that doesn't do everything legal (and sometimes illegal) to ensure maximum profits.

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.

It's a bit sketchy, but after rewatching the kick multiple times, Sherman is really diving from the right. I think Walsh wanted to avoid it and just veered off left too hard to the left.

The cold also probably played a role.
>>
idk why they would rig it when people will watch it regardless. I mean why would they have chicken parm get BTFO in a superbowl?

And that also implies that Wilson intentionally threw a pick which implies he has the skill to throw a pass this accurately

No. The Broncos would have beat the Seahawks at SB48 if it was.

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.

Broncos will win the rematch in SB50 and Peyton will ride of into the sunset, just as Goodell planned all along.
>>
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.
>>
Have you ever seen a worse field goal attempt?

I'm not a huge NFL fan but I watch a lot of soccer and even pro soccer players miss penalty kicks which are easier than a field goal

but seriously, that wasn't even close. He shanked it HARD, like he kicked it really really hard the completely wrong way

seems pretty intentional to me desu senpai
>>
>>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.
>>
Influenced by the refs, sure, but outright rigged, no.

People don't notice as much when a call changes the outcome with the spread, or pushes a game just north of the o/u. This is where it comes into play, not outright win loss.
>>
>>64834673
Probably the second best defender after Watt was dive bombing from the right. He shanked it too far left because he thought it was going to get blocked.
>>
Not as rigged as the NBA, but teams do get some calls in their favor at times.
>>
>>64834689
And it gave them a third play to work with against the clock, and the best chance to win the game.

Oh but your thing sounds good too

The replay era really actually does more to keep it from being rigged than to help rig it seeing as everyone can see bad calls.
>>
>>64834721
>Oh but your thing sounds good too
They had 40 seconds and 2 time outs.
If they wanted more clock time, they didn't need to risk it with a throw.

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.

>>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.

okay mateo. When the Panthers win this year and have a new booming bandwagon fanbase and this trent continues forever come back to me.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
>>
>>64838755

>>
>>64839191
That's not what that means anon. Non profit means they don't hold funds at years end. It just means they pay out 100% of their income to their employees.
>>
>>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.

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

He was within a hair of blocking the third field goal.

I think its kinda funny how the Chiefs are suddenly super bowl contenders right after the Royals won the WS.

The post celebration in KC was expecting around 150k people but damn near 1 million people showed up.

I'd say someone somewhere wants that to happen again just this time with the superbowl. Then they can see some real revenue in KC.

If it was fixed, the Cowboys would win the Owl at least every 3 years.

I'm not saying the refs don't favor certain teams or don't have some agenda, but the notion that everything is scripted behind the scenes is bullshit.

What the fuck do people want from this guy? He's literally playcalled out of the game in favor of giving Peterson 30 carries up the gut and you all still piss and moan.

I'm not saying he's great or anything but Bridgewater is at least 3rd or 4th in line in terms of blame.

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.

Did they actually think the play was over?

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.

29% way back in 2002, and its been on a long downward trend, which has most likely continued.

It's also much lower among people with college degrees.

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.

Actually if you watched the NFL for more than 2 years you'd know the playoff teams shift wildly.

Also if the NFL was rigged, a leak would be very easy. All it would take it one ex-ref or disgruntled employee to spill the beans.

>>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.

>>64838657

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.
>>
>>64834415

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.

The man missed the field goal. A chip shot.

The NFL didn't make him miss.

Also, I'd like to know how the balls felt. It was extremely cold. Were they made a touch soft?
>>
>>64843348
the flag was picked up because a ref with another angle informed them that the Det TE grabbed the Dal LB's facemask and pulled him forward
>>
Its impossible to rehearse crazy last second plays that win the game and if they did people would know about it. Refs, steroids and intentional injuries are the only way the games could be rigged.
>>
>>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.
>>
>>64846403
And te fact that Sherman touched his last FG
>>
Well slightly.

1. Compensatory picks
2. Unreviewable penalties
3. Uneven suspensions

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
>>
>>64847222
Adding on. For those unaware

The nfl gives out compensatory picks to teams

However, here's the catch

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.
>>
Serious answer: partially rigged, and the refs admit it. Not as bad as the NBA.
>>
>>64840558
>women not thinking constantly about getting fucked by rich men
>>
>>64847222
None of those are fixing games, they're just bad rules or incompetency in the case of suspension

>>64847288
do they dictate which players teams have to pick to?
