the nfl is fixed post #1  quote:



i'm starting to wonder if the nfl is fixed. how could people payed so much, play so bad? i wonder if they alternate the super bowl champ every few years to guaruntee a fan base. if that's the case they forgotten the cleveland browns. although being an expansion team has bought "them" some time.

p.s. i hate denver

This is the greatest post I've seen in a while. A good friend of mine is a diehard Browns fan and I get an earfull every week about Cleveland's woes.

There's always next year... sorry dude.

The NFL is fixed, just checkout today's AFC Championship game. Walt Coleman refereed the game, and he also was the referee at the Patroits, Raiders game, when the Patroits, went to the superbowl the last time. Plus add to the fact that Coleman's crew this season called more penalties then any crew during the regular season, yet today they throw no flags, espeically late in the game. The bottom line is that it is easy to fix an NFL game, just Walt Coleman's crew. Think about it, they can throw a penalty flag at any time, for any reason, and can effect the outcome of the games, by throwing or not throwing a flag. Here's an example, say the NFL wants NE to win, so the crew throws no flags or no flags of value vs the Patroits, but does throw them against the Colts. Say the colts score, so the umpire could call holding, and call the TD back for any reason. Only in the NFL can a referee effect a team's ability to score. Yes the NFL actually stands for National Fixed League, and yes all us fans are the victims.

I agree with the lack of flags thrown during the game today. Especially late in the game (eg. Pass interference on New England.) Oh well, now I must root for Carolina or the Eagles. Anybody except New England. Where was Belichick in Cleveland? MVC my a$$, it's all determined by the amount of money a team has, for example the Yankees or Lakers. Go Carolina! Go Eagles!
