Hey NON, I just thought of something that could possibly tie into your conspiracy. First, if you sportsbettors/fans pay attention, you'll see that the analysts and pregame shows don't talk about the gambling aspect of sports. The spreads are mentioned a bit here and there on shows like the Herd and SVP & Russillo, but for such a HUGE part of the NFL, gambling is still a behind-the-scenes atmosphere for the most part. It's like an "unwritten rule" per se.
So if you didn't know, Colin Cowherd had an unbelievable NFL season with his ATS picks. He went 49-21 last season ATS, not FTW. Thats almost unreal to win week to week like that. Colin's 2012 season
It is possible, given his audience and reach, that after last season he, 1) given your theory has some validity and the outcomes to a certain extent are known, 2) the NFL is strictly entertainment thus the wins/losses are "governed" and 3) money is involved (most important part), that Vegas obviously understood the public/Cowherd's audience would follow Cowherd's picks for 2013. It is possible that "the wiseguys", knowing the game results, gave Cowherd a chunk of change to give wrong picks. Not so? Let's look at Cowherd's NFL record so far this season: 8-21 !!! Blazing 5
Yeah yeah yeah, they talk about "parody" in the NFL and sports in general. Maybe they do so to keep the truth in the background (like every other corruption). The truth being, the game is rigged??
Again, it's not illegal if its purely entertainment. If nothing else, there are definitely different levels of conspiracy to consider. After all, we don't "KNOW" anything. And perhaps we only "KNOW" what they want us to.
Keep your tinfoil hats close everyone!!
