Thoughts on rigged sports
If you think of all the thousands of people involved in the NFL, from players to coaches to refs to front office people, there are just too many that would have to be in on it to keep it secret. Point shaving is one thing but to say that an entire season is choreographed, it's just not plausible.
Take the Saints - Vikings game for example. If you believe that game was rigged then you believe that Favre threw that interception to Porter on purpose. The payoff he was getting would have to be huge to overcome the money and glory he would have gotten by going to the Super Bowl. I have trouble believing that anyone would make that trade off. People that believe that sports are rigged are just another flavor of tin foil hat wearing conspiracy theorists.
