Hearing HORRIBLE Rumors; Thinking HORRIBLE thoughts.

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; The "highest scoring offense in history" didn't not play a top 6 defense, not even once. Until they were shut out by #1. Yep.. Not only did Denver's defense allow 43 against the Seahawks but they allowed 48 to Dallas.. ...

The "highest scoring offense in history" didn't not play a top 6 defense, not even once. Until they were shut out by #1.


Yep.. Not only did Denver's defense allow 43 against the Seahawks but they allowed 48 to Dallas..

And when they finally met teams in the playoffs:
Denver's offense only put up 26 against the Patriots 26th ranked Defense, and 24 against the Chargers 23rd ranked Defense.

Good point but also consider our first game was played in Seattle the Broncos had a neutral field. Give our staff credit the second game we had a much better result.

No, I don't bet on football.

However I have a major bookie in my family, and he/she is convinced that the fix is in, but only in the big games, which include some Monday night games.

There is no question that the NFL has their favorite teams. However wouldn't doubt that the League would weigh in on supporting cities
and promote the NFL in some of the lesser markets. In my opinion
the NFL is a business first and sport second.

Re: Hearing HORRIBLE Rumors; Thinking HORRIBLE thoughts.

The NFL doesn't have the testicular fortitude to fix the SB. Think about how many people lost large money because they bet on Manning. Mattress Mack that owns Gallery Furniture here in Houston lost 7 million on his own. When you start fixing those sort of losses people visit your front door at night and they are not there to talk.

Your not just playing with a billion dollar industry you are playing with your life and a corporation that has congressional oversight....

I suppose the Government is involved in this conspiracy also?

'Mattress Mack' forks over $7 million in Seahawks win - Houston Chronicle

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

Re: Hearing HORRIBLE Rumors; Thinking HORRIBLE thoughts.

In an age of instant information and multi-media, where anyone who wants to know what celebrity ate for breakfast can, I have to ask, why have none of the said conspirators ever come forward? Why has no info ever been leaked?
Even Seal Team 6 got leaked.
Yes, there was the pro basketball scandal, and there have been allegations in college basketball as well, but when has any NFL player, coach, or official ever even hinted at a fix?

Sorry, I am not buying any of it.

It's very hard for two people to keep a secret. It's almost impossible for more than two.

Re: Hearing HORRIBLE Rumors; Thinking HORRIBLE thoughts.

I don't believe the NFL fixed the Superbowl, however, I do believe the Seahawks are cheating. Today's NFL is all about passing and offense, more yards, more points, more excitement, more money. So how did the Seahawks shut down both Payton Manning and Drew Brees in the same year? Spygate 2.0 and PEDs. Don't get me wrong, these guys are tremendous tacklers and have a nose for the ball, but there's something else to it.
