Simple question. Is professional wrestling or the NBA the bigger hoax.

Everyone thinks pro wrestlers is fixed ahead of time.

There is at least one referee in the NBA that has been accused of affecting the outcome of games over the last couple of years. No telling how many other game officials will ultimately be charged. Bad calls made in the future, will be suspect of ulterior motives.

Sports fans, what do you think....

d00d if there are corrupt refs in NBA well then there are corrupt refs... It needs to be dealt with, as would any corruption anywhere.

However, WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) is of course 100% planned, memorised, practiced and acted. There is no doubt about it. It's entertainment not a sport. It's a show.

No conspiracy there.

BRING BACK BROCK LESNAR!!!

Go NBA refs - spice up a dull game with a lotta rigging and shaving and stuff.

Bounce, bounce, foul. Bounce, bounce, er foul *let me check with my employer* yup that's a foul!

Women have All My Children.

Men have WWE.

They are both scripted, rehearsed and chock-full of sex, drugs and drama. Sports Entertainment is just that- Sports ENTERTAINMENT.

The NBA however is a sport. A competition between athletes. If there are bad refs, it doesn't make it just another TV show. There is still a level of competition unseen in WWE. Points count in the NBA, not in professional wrestling. The athletes facing each other in the ring already know the outcome.

No question.

As to:

WWE is the largest hoax!! And I love it.

NBA will wish to have the worlwide fan base that WWE has. I bet that more people watch WWE than NBA if you count that viewers outside the US.

The NBA is getting worst and with this scandal it;s going to take them a while to regain public trust.

NBA is obviously much bigger and more profitable than WWE. How many wrestlers do you figure are making 10-20 million per year.

I agree that the NBA has shot themselves in the foot. I think that most of us have come to expect players to frequently get into trouble of one kind or another. When something of this magnitude happens with a game official it really does raise serious creditabilty questions for the sport.

You are right. It will take a long while to regain the confidence of the majority of the fans.
