It's every Pro Sport, with how the referees handle situations or how the big leading Organisations refuse to input advanced cameras (like Goal
Cameras for soccer games, FIFA refuses ist) i ofen wonder, if it's just scripted.Sometimes it's as absurd as your regular WWE event. I can only give
the example of the NHL as i don't watch Pussyball (Basketball is lame) and only occasional follow the NFL.
As a Red Wings fan, i saw some weird things. Like in 2009, when Evgeni Malkin had an Instigator, 10 Minute Misconduct and Game Misconduct for his
behaviour. The NHL rule book says that this leads to an automatic 1 game suspension - yet Malkin was never suspended. Same this season with Weber
slamming Zetterbergs head against the glass, even his helmet fractured - yet there was only a 2,500$ fine (which a guy who gets 7,5 million dollars in
this season alone just laughs about), same goes on with a lot of other teams. Very weird as if the NHL tries to control the outcome of the playoffs
(and look at this season, most favourites are gone, what's left are mostly expansion teams and of course the Coyotes who are actually owned by the
There are a lot of scandals on in Sports. Here in Europe Football (Soccer) is big, in the past few years we had several scandals in Germany with
bribed referees and players. In Italy the same happened in a even bigger way (Juventus lost 2 of its Championships and was demoted to the Serie B)
You just have to wonder, how many bribbing acts got through, how many referees were paid to help one team or how many players were paid to lose
against another team (Here in Germany we had that one big scandal in 1970 were several players of different teams were paid so they played
'bad'against other teams as a measurement of what team gets demoted to the second division)
And of course don't forget the most fake pro sport there is: Boxing. So many scandals in the past 25 years, it's laughable.
There's certainly a lot of foul play going on in "pro sports", it's a big business with millions of dollars after all.
