NFL exec claims Rams-Seahawks was year’s ‘worst officiated game’ as referees face heavy scrutiny: report
Some NFL execs are reportedly pushing for changes to how referees are trained after crucial calls were missed during the high-stakes Week 18 game
On the radio back in the old days there used to be a scam between the disk jockey and the owner of a new record, it was called Payola. The disk jockey would repeatedly play the same record over and over for it to gain popularity and he would get a nice fat envelope at the end of the week from the singer or record producer.
In November 1959, in closed and open sessions before the U.S. House Oversight Committee, 335 disc jockeys from around the country admitted to having received over $263,000 in “consulting fees.” That figure was only the tip of the payola iceberg (before the hearings, Phil Lind, a DJ at Chicago’s WAIT had confessed that …
Corruption comes in many different ways shapes and forms. In the NFL and other sporting activities, there are some unscrupulous referees that make bad calls or no calls at all to shift the possibility in favor of their team winning the game. I called Payolla football style.
Charlie; look under your seat when you get in your car, there’s a nice fat envelope there for you.
This kind of crime goes on constantly in all walks of life.
The fixing (boxer throwing the fight) of boxing matches became so prevalent years back that they were thinking of banning boxing.
Wherever there is $$$$ to be made, the cockroaches come out of the walls to get their dirty fingers in the pie. Unfortunately, THE FIX has become a way of life in the United States and worldwide.
Wikipedia explains it in more detail:
In organized sports, match fixing is the act of playing or officiating a match with the intention of achieving a pre-determined result, violating the rules of the game and often the law. There are many reasons why match-fixing might take place, including receiving bribes from bookmakers or sports bettors, and blackmail. Competitors may also intentionally perform poorly to gain a future advantage, such as a better draft pick[A] or to face an easier opponent in a later round of competition.[B] A player might also play poorly to rig a handicap system.
The real problem is the authorities that oversee these transgressions rarely take any steps to prevent RHE FIX. Why you may ask?? Charlie; look under your seat when you get in your car, there’s a nice fat envelope there for you.
THE FIX is universal, not only in the sporting world but in every walk of life, business and occupation. How do we think that Pelosi (AKA NASTY NAN) and her old man have become such wealthy people? Inside information.
In all fairness, they are not the only ones, this happens thousands possibly millions of times a day with people on the inside. As a matter of fact, it would not bother me at all if someone whispered in my ear. Why not take advantage of it if it is available. Inside information is just another form of THE FIX.
I will give you 10 – 1 that neither of them changed their skivvies today. Make that 20 – 1.
