Well, I'm not a huge sports fan, but I've kept up on football (usa football, not soccer) for a few years now. Last year was pathetic as there were
certain things, mostly calls by the refs that were like wtf?? Convienently, it seems certain calls have been made that make the other team win by the
exact amount of points that were disregarded as a result of the penalty call. For example, Tonight Raiders vs Chargers.. Now, I am a Denver Broncos
fan, so I can objectively say that I really don't care which one of those teams won. The raiders played real well, but then when in the 2nd quarter,
the raiders made a pass into the endzone it was ruled incomplete. The announcers were like "well if this is ruled incomplete then that wouldn't be
right!" etc etc...after they had shown the play multiple times proving that it was a complete pass.
The refs rule the pass as incomplete and the raiders ended up getting a field goal instead. Even the announcers
are stunned. So the raiders lost out of 4 points because of the bad call. At this point, I called BS and knew the raiders would lose by 4 points. At
the 4th quarter it became rediculous. Clearly the announcers were predicting plays etc then the raiders quarterback was injured and out of several
plays. If anyone has recorded that game, then I ask you watch that part over again a few times. Listen to how fake it gets!!! It's unreal. The
quarterback was CLEARLY acting and it was almost like they were just trying to waste time so that the clock could run out. Ultimately, the raiders
lost (and i could care less normally) by 4 points. Rediculous! Is football staged??? Sometimes it really seems like it. I mean these players are pros,
if they wanted to stage something, I'm sure they would be willing. Afterall they make millions to do what they do while the crowd cheers..
