and i guarantee you, that couch has ALOT more insight on the workings of the NFL than you, or me, or that idiot that wrote that website has.

Larry Bird made comment that game 6 of the 1984 finals was fixed because David Stern wanted a 7 game series to maximize ratings and interest in the NBA.

The problem is i dont think coaches believe in fixing, and oh by the way, if they do, they get fined big time. They are also portrayed as whining tin foil hat wearing crybabies who probably wont get a job in the sport they love again if they do attempt to blow the whistle.
lots of REALLY GREAT examples from the NBA. they've proven that there were shenanigans there already. and as stated before, smaller crews, small amount of players, smaller field of play...much easier to "fix" something with those conditions.

so these coaches that are cool with fixing...they just want to coach and get paid right? they don't care about winning. they don't care about the integrity of the game. they don't care about their own integrity either. they're just puppets doing what the NFL makes them do.

wow. and to think you guys buy into everything needed to make fixes happen...

wow. just wow.
