My Advice: If you Bet on NFL Games: Don’t: the League is Rigged

The Super Bowl was rigged in February. I have watched three games which were rigged by the official and it’s only the second week of the season.
If I had access to all NFL films, I would make a documentary of how many games, many of them season changing, were decided by the officials.
It’s not just the result of an intentionally bad call, “momentum” can easily change the outcome of a professional football game. When the “zebras” decide the games with bad calls or non-calls, it is a travesty. The NFL is the most profitable sports organization in history. Most corporations fail in comparison.
The most obvious effort by the “zebras” was on the first game of the year between the Cowboys and the Buccaneers. One of the quarterbacks was Tom Brady, so the play which decided the game was no surprise. Throughout his career the officials have protected him and allowed him victories he did not deserve.
On September 9th, a no call on obvious offensive pass interference allowed Tampa Bay to kick a game-winning field goal.
A fact I have heard from football “experts” is that in the NFL a penalty could be called on every play. That nearly became a reality in today’s game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Los Angeles Chargers. Among the many penalties were two after the Chargers had scored touchdowns. Guess which team “won” the game.
I am not bragging, but I know the game of football better than most players, coaches, and definitely the officials. I began watching the game in the late 1950’s, and have been a student of the game for my entire adult life. I do not “party,” including the Super Bowl, because the game is everything to me. I watch it alone. The truth is that I am finished with professional sports. Making millionaires out of players who are owned by billionaires has ruined baseball, basketball, and now football.
My only refuge is the USA Women’s Soccer Team. They are without a doubt the best team in all of sport.
Finally, America is not a country and professional sports are not based on talent: they are corporations, and in our nation, profit is more important than integrity, and people.
