Is Pro Footbal fixed by the league through the officiating to Protect the interest of making money
Debate Rounds (2)
The league acknowledged the officials call more penalties earlier in the season than later in the season. They are admitting their guilty.
Logically speaking, if bad teams lose early in the season then the league is leaving money on the table through loss of income. BUT if bad teams win a few games early in the season then their are more dollars for the league to make plus the fans will still support their team
Then think of the communities when it comes to building a new stadium. Does anyone believe communities would support paying 1 Billion Dollars through increased taxes to pay for a new stadium?
Why aren't the owners building their own stadiums? Other businesses have to pay for their buildings.
There is much discussion that the NFL is fixing games. These accusations are both true and untrue. The NFL has obvious favorites. I have obvious evidence that the NFL has favorites. As a Oakland Raider fan, I have seen moments where penalties are called, but they would not be called on lets say... the Packers or the Patriots.
Some teams are favorites, but there is no evidence that the games are fixed. They referees may like to make a few "questionable calls" to make the games closer, but it seems that usually, the teams with the better players win. I don't think the NFL is all about business. They definitely like it, though. They definitely spend more on some teams, but the NFL is an amazing organization that I believe is a genuine corporation that has teams winning or losing thorough the season on their own.
The Patriots are a great story. GOOD COP / BAD COP - People want to come and watch the Villain lose. This story line goes back to our childhoods. FAKE as FAKE can be. In Baseball Pete Rose is banned in Football their IMMORTALIZED.
The question that should be asked is: what teams need to advance? Large Market teams, Larger revenue teams, Where are the largest fan based.
BUFFALO MAKES THE PLAYOFFS 10-6. WHY 1) the amount of season tickets sold - the most ever in the franchise history. Watch 7 and2 over the next 9 games. The refs will help.
Case in point: Pick any game they are all the same, but I will pick the Bills against the Jaguars.
1st half if you want the Jags to win the refs just have to sit back and watch the Bills self destruct.
2nd half the refs through field position and playing the statistics, Buffalo defeats the odds and came back. Then with Buffalo ahead the MYSTERY INTERFERENCE flag is thrown. From an odds perspective, the Jags are going to at the least score 3 pts and maybe 7 odds are in favor of 3. The Jags score 7.
Buffalo needs a TD what are the odds. We are talking a terrible QB buffalo loses.
1 timed call by the REFS - GAME OVER!
Nothing illegal -
The NFL is all about statistics - Put teams in bad field position and no matter the team the game is goes in favor of the Bookies and the League. If the game is not in the direction for the League the refs can control the rest.
POINT 2) Last Winter under a Traffic ban throughout Western New York which is buried in 7 ft of snow, the NFL wanted People to drive and over to the stadium and shovel out the parking lots. It took the Local News and the County Executive embarrassed the NFL before the game was rescheduled to be played in Detroit.
