Is there any game besides SB 51 that you can think of that looked rigged or scripted?

Not to be a conspiracy theorist but do you find it a little odd that when Shanahan left for the 49ers that he got Garappolo from the Patriots?

Things that make you go hmmmmm

2015, home game vs the Carolina Panthers.  They were undefeated at the time (we gave them their only loss) and it was late in the game.  The ref's called 3 straight false starts against us, which I had never ever in my life had seen before and because of this, barely any time ran off the clock.  Those refs/league were trying to keep the Panthers undefeated.

Wonder if you could make a Poll to go along with this thread, how many believe the NFL is 'flat-out rigged', 'compromised by ratings', 'gaming influenced', 'not rigged at all', 'referees can be biased' etc.

If not, I will see if I can come-up with one, but since you have this thread thought it would be better for you to post in tandem.

I will let you do it. I tried to do it but it didn't work. My android won't even let my use a profile picture (which would just be a picture of a Falcons player) on here. Says it's not the right size.

Yes, tough to do with mobile apps. Thanks

That was the worst game I've ever seen. They called an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on Freeman for just saying something to a Saints player. We never had a chance that game with Sean Payton crying all week leading up to it.  

I agree that was one of the worst officiated games in history. That's a far cry from real evidence  of some predetermined 'fixing' of it, though.

Plays like Lattimore tackling 11 before the ball gets there is just bad. Sometimes there are bad and missed calls. Isolated plays like that will probably not have an impact on the game and are probably just coincidence  

 

Ps. The saints sure got their payback for that one tho.

"We" didn't do anything, Kyle didn't run the ball when it was obviously necessary to do so. :tiphat:

Another one was in 2007 a Monday night football game Patriots at the Ravens. The Ravens said publicly after the game we can't beat the undefeated Patriots and the referees.

How is it rigged when you choke the game away ??, i understand they made some crazy calls but the refs didnt blow a 25 point lead in the 4th qtr. yall cant really believe that was rigged putting personal feelings aside , there is no one to blame but us 

What if the choking was a part of the rig??

It was holding penalties on short runs. Penalties were declined but offensive penalties stop the clock until the next snap. I’ll say this was a big turning point for me. Still watch every Falcons game, but I’m certainly not as invested into the NFL as I was.

This. Wasn't that the same year that the refs allowed the Saints to rape Brett Favre? That game was obviously rigged.  

If it was rigged then that means Favre was scripted to throw that pass across his body instead of running 5-10 yards and kicking a game-winning FG. If that game was scripted in our favor, they wouldn't have flagged us 9 times for 88 yards.

The most obvious one of all, besides SB 51, was this last season. Of course that would be the Saints and the Rams.

Where do you begin. The NFL has been so poor at covering-up their predetermined winners over the years that you could point to almost every Super Bowl, and many of the Post-Season games especially. 

You sure are courageous for opening-up this topic, but I am going to stay out it, just want to see where it goes without my help.

Not only just our NFC Championship vs. the Rams, but the AFC Championship this year too. Before January, there was only 6 Conference Championship games that have gone into overtime, so what are the odds that for the first time in NFL history, BOTH Conference Championship games go to overtime in the same year due to bogus calls (and no-calls) from the supposed "all-star officiating crews"? They can go sell that bridge somewhere else. Outright rigging I'm skeptical of, but they're definitely influencing and swaying games as they see fit to make more money.

Coincidentally, that SI article I linked above just so happened to be posted... you guessed it, the day of the Conference Championships this year. Hmmm.

What do ya say about the tuck rule game? Sure looked like a bad call to me. Kind of gave new life to the Pats. Took the air out of the Raiders. Who came up with that bogus tuck rule anyway? I had never heard anything like that till that game. I call BS on that trash. 

Nothing funny going on here.

Exactly what happened in the NFC Championship. Both instances shouldn't have resulted in overtime but did.

To anyone with functioning eyes could see, that was a fumble and that was pass interference.

What about the super bowl of the 49 ers v Ravens?  The blackout in the SuperDomme?

Bingo. The 49ers couldn't get their **** together in the allotted half-time and resumed their collapse in the 3rd quarter giving up a 108-yd kick-off return TD to start the second half. If there's never a prolonged delay and essentially a 2nd halftime for the 49ers to fix their broken gameplan, the Ravens absolutely mop the floor with them the entire game.

It didn't work. Ravens still win. The 49ers may have covered the spread but I'm not sure.

Who won isn't exactly the point, they were trying to dampen a blowout and keep viewers entertained (and it worked). From August 2006 (when Goodell assumed his role as commissioner) until that point in time, the average margin of victory in the Super Bowl was 7.2 points and no Super Bowl had been won by a margin greater than 14 points.

The Ravens had a 28-6 lead and they were about to get the ball back considering the Ravens just sacked Kaepernick and the 49ers were facing a 3rd & 13 from their own 40 until the blackout stopped play for 34 minutes. That combined with Jacoby Jones returning the 2nd half kick-off for a TD and the prolonged Super Bowl halftime show, the Ravens' offense had not seen the field for over an hour when they last touched the ball at about the 2 minute warning. So when they finally did touch the ball, their offense had gone cold and sputtered. Meanwhile, "oh the lights are back on... and so is the 49ers offense!" :rolleyes:

Another interesting fact was since this blackout occurred (if it was by the NFL's design), is what happened in the Super Bowl the very next year with the Seahawks slaughtering the Broncos. Had the Ravens-49ers Super Bowl been more competitive for its entire duration, I don't think the blackout occurs in New Orleans, but in New Jersey at MetLife instead. So you can imagine how pissed the League was having to eat that **** sandwich knowing they couldn't pull that trick out two years in a row.

I don't think games are scripted, but I do believe refs can A: get emotional and can be influenced by the crowd; B: be star struck by star players (i.e. flag players if they breathe near Tom Brady or Drew Brees) C: umps have favorite/hated teams too (i.e.  Jerome Boger and him stating that he didn't like the Falcons- the man shouldn't ref another Falcons game).

Brady, yes, but saying Brees gets roughing the passing calls frequently is a reach. We've benefited from 4 roughing the passer calls (including only 1 all of last year, including the playoffs) in the last two years, that's an average of 1 every 8 games (1 every 9 games when factoring in the 4 playoff games). Meanwhile y'all have benefited from 7 roughing the passer calls in the same time frame, nearly double.

The game where Drew Brees needed one more completed pass to get the all time record......and it showed his wife being escorted to the side lines in preparation for a family celebration, prior to getting a completion.

Because he only needed 35 yards to break the record and that record was going to fall on that drive considering our offense had 62 yards in real estate to accomplish it in. It's simple math.

No one forced Shanny  not to run the ball 3 times after Julio's catch. 3 runs, a chipshot FG, and the game is over.

Rigged? No.

ohh but did u forget the play where two falcons player literally fight over the ball and allows edelman to catch it when it should have been 4th down ? 

or when jake matthews decide to hold or sanu decided to grab the facemask ??

or when the defense literally couldnt stop anyone anymore ??

or when the offense went brain neutral in 3rd and 4th qtr ??

ohh but we cant forget the most important. Simply run it three times and kick the field goal and you win the game. 

Stop trying to look for an excuse when there isnt any. The team folded, they lost this game. Not the refs or the league. Im surprised yall are still blaming refs for the SB loss.

****. 2 grand slams in one thread.

YES.  this was exactly what they were doing...it was a desperate measure to make the game more competitive.  i mean the Super Dome has seen better days to say the least but man youre telling me that the lights went out magically and then magically came back on.  youd think there would be backup generators that could power an entire state in any nfl facility hostin gthe SB

Plenty of them. Russell Wilson's pass to Malcolm Butler. The catch by Santonio Holmes vs Arizona, which they tried a couple of plays prior on the opposite side of the field. The almost undefeated season Super Bowl vs the Giants.

The NFL worked really hard to get NE WR to catch that ball one inch from the ground... they had that planned before the season started... :angry:          :lol:          :golfclap:

I'm surprised the referees didn't favor the Saints vs the Rams because a Brady vs Brees super bowl would have done the best ratings.

As far as super bowl blowouts is concerned we know most of America would enjoy seeing the Patriots get their @$$es handed to them for 60 minutes on the big stage.
