The National Football League (NFL) is one of the most popular sports leagues in the world. Every year, millions of people tune in to watch the best players in the world compete for the chance to win the Super Bowl, the biggest prize in American football. But is the NFL really as fair and competitive as it appears on television? Or is it all just a carefully scripted drama designed to keep viewers entertained?
There is no denying that the NFL is a business. And like any business, its primary goal is to make money. So it stands to reason that the league would want to do everything it can to ensure that its product (i.e. the games) are as entertaining as possible.
This might include ensuring that certain teams are more successful than others, or making sure that key players are always in the spotlight. After all, if viewers are not entertained, they are not going to watch. And if people are not watching, then the NFL is not going to make any money.
Of course, there is no concrete evidence that the NFL is indeed scripted. But there have been a number of suspicious incidents over the years that have led many people to believe that something fishy is going on behind the scenes.
For example, there have been multiple instances of teams inexplicably losing key players to injuries at crucial moments in the season. These injuries always seem to happen at just the right time to throw off a team’s chances of winning, and they often occur when there is a lot of money riding on the outcome of a game.
Another suspicious thing that happens frequently in the NFL is “coin flips.” If a game is tied at the end of regulation time, then it will go into overtime and be decided by a coin flip. The team that wins the coin flip almost always goes on to win the game.
In fact, since 2007, there have been 97 games decided by a coin flip, and only 12 of those have been won by the team that lost the flip !!! That’s an astounding 86% success rate for teams that win the coin flip!
So what does all this mean? Is the NFL rigged or fixed? It’s hard to say for sure. But based on all of the evidence, it certainly looks like something fishy might be going on behind closed doors.
