Again, I'm not insinuating a "fix!!!!": like some netherwordly mafia/Vegas conspiracy. THAT is exactly what Goodell and his cohorts WANT. I am stating a1s FACT that Harbaugh Bowl was trademarked in February a FULL YEAR before the actual Harbaugh Bowl occurred. This is F-A-C-T. I am asserting that a referee crew ranked at the bottom of the league in officiating all season was suddenly re-evaluated , elevated to the top and given the Super Bowl to officiate. THAT is F-A-C-T. I am saying I and others who took the time , evalauted the post game video of the Super Bowl and discerned over forty clear defensive penalties in the backfield with only ONE CALL all game. I am stating as an eyewitness that Torrey Smith grabbed the SF defender's arms from behind and pulled them back right in front of an official with three minutes left in the half, with no call. 100% clear offensive pass interference giving the Niners field position and at least three points. I am stating as observed FACT that there was clear pass interference that even a two year old coulde see at the end of the game in the end zone. No call. That crew made ONE call all game in the defensive backfields, and that one against SF. So yes, I believe there is mounting evidence that the NFL is steering matchups toward favorable outcomes. I believe that the constant cry of "can't be!!! takes too many to fix games!!!" is a deliberate canard foisted on the public to hide the fact that the league, the advertisers and the networks are in collusion with the ultimate aim of constructing revenue streams that DWARF any kind of classical "fix" scheme by a QUANTUM factor. You fix a game you make what, at most a few hundred million? You steer matchups to reap the highest possible return through all the ancillary revenue streams both today and for years down the road? You're talking billions and billions of recurring dollars downstream. Ray Lewis..goes out a winner...immediately takes his seat in the corporation post game. The story.."Ultimate Salvation!!!"..."The Ray Lewis Redemption!"...buy your Ray Lewis jersey today...only $200...EVERYONE wants one! Flacco sure was a HUGE story last season...all season....they got their use out of him. This year it's Peytie Pope...he wins...the corporation gets richer. Next week's "classic" will showcase the valiant young gunslinger and future face of the league versus the royalty that is Peyton Manning. Manning will get this one...just like Ray Ray got that one. Luck's shot comes next season and the years following...I'm saying it now, just like I said it this afternoon. I'm an old dog and I know a scam when I see one. We, the fans, are nothing but sheep to be fleeced by these corporate oligarchs. The NFL as we knew it ended in 2001.
