    Default Is the NFL manipulated or fixed?

    Many various polls of NFL fans are showing as much as 80% majority of NFL fans believe the games are fixed, or manipulated to help favored teams win...such as refs making calls shaving points. What is your opinion, do you think the NFL is manipulated or fixed for higher TV ratings & profits, and/or Vegas odds profiting?

    You already know where I stand as far as this is concerned & it started rearing its ugly head in the late 90's.

    The NFL isn't fixed IMO BUT it's also not a 100% level playing field Stars get calls. If you have a star QB you get calls it's that simple





    • Alex Smith isn't a "star" QB there's no way our O line would get away with this. You can still beat those teams but it isn't a level playing field. It's tilted

    I totally agree the likes of Tom Brady and Peyton are the elite as was Steve Young,Marino,Favre they are and were protected by the league.not for sure if it's for the rating or for Vegas but they are protected.

    I saw this freeze game photo, as well as many similar, especially in Donkey games, and I must admit, it infuriates me that the refs allow these types of holds when opposing defenses go after Manning in particular. It makes me want to choke hold the refs!
