  1. That's what were talking about, putting it on the 25 and 4 downs to score. Then keep pushing them back 5 yards if they are both successful. Only TDs, no 1st downs. I like the 2pt conversion requirement.
  2. Forget timed OTs, just let them go at it and first to score after each get a possession wins. The only thing I can think is if they both score on the first possessions, then each get another set of possessions (maybe jest move the back 5 yards and 4 downs to score like before). If neither score on first possessions its first to score wins.
  3. But they do give a possession to both teams. It just makes it quicker to score. Put them on the 25 and say you've got 4 downs to score. Each get a turn and then first to score. Its the same way as you're suggesting except they don't have to go 80 yards.
  4. In basketball, is it the first to make a basket? How about soccer or hockey? NFL is the only one that is that first one to score wins (FGs excluded for those that want to be petty).
  5. Does anyone really have a problem with how college ball does it?
  6. The reason you are not going to devote time is the same reason nobody else really does. Thus nothing ever really gets proven or scrutinized. People will continue to believe what they want because they don't want to question it. Why would the sports media call out something they are making money from? Would you really delegitimize the very thing your making your livelihood from? I think not, therefore why even attempt to question it. Plus, this isn't common knowledge. Nobody in the sports media cares to research the laws because they do not see it as real. Once you look into it, it could very well be a possibility, but you don't know what it is that you don't know. There is nothing to discuss because they are legally allowed to do it only by what they are told they cannot do. Nothing explicitly states it, but therein lies the reason they can do it, because nothing explicitly says they cannot either. The go to argument against saying there are to many moving parts is a fallacy. You only need the refs for the most part. That is not a lot. The refs are not permitted to talk to the media, and guaranteed they are under non-disclosure agreements about anything the NFL does or does not do. So long as the games go as they want, there is nothing to be done, but if not the refs can help. It does not need to be all 256 games, only select few to ensure certain teams are in the playoffs and certain teams make it to the championships.
  7. The 2010 spygate case. The ruling provided does not explicitly state they can, yet the ruling contends the NFL is only an entertainment event as argued by the NFL. The wording of the ruling allows for wiggle room. There are also currently no laws on the books that prevent a sports organization from influencing the outcome of their own events (look to WWE as example). The quiz show act only applies to contests of intellectual skills and knowledge. Nor does the sports bribery act apply because it applies to those outside of an organization from influencing the events within.
  8. Fair enough, but at some point there's some things that cannot be chalked up to human error, that rams game and the video I posted previously. Those are just far too blatant. At what point do these coincidences become more than that?
  9. Devils advocate, does it really matter or can argue he is if it's scripted?
  10. Two refs were there with two drastically different angles. It was ignored
  11. This should not have become a brady vs manning debate. Its old news and no-one agrees.
  12. Powerful NDAs are all you need. Who would want to be on the hook to repay the NFL for billions?
  13. The offensive side deserved to lose because their D didn't get a stop? Logic lacking.
  14. It won't increase the time. Three challenges are still three challenges, regardless of what you're challenging. There's more commercial timeouts than anything.
  15. Impossible? Do you not see the refs on the field? Did you not see the PI that wasn't called that allowed the Rams to win? Numerous other games with no calls or phantom calls like the roughing the passer that saved the patriots drive and game. Draft picks and four games is not enough to prevent the games from being scripted. How about this Or just this fun fact: The NFL argued in court that it is not a competitive sport, rather sports entertainment. They won and are LEGALLY allowed to fix games for the best entertainment, that which gives them the best profits and ratings. Only other "sports entertainment" is WWE and roller derby. They are not obligated to ensure fair games, as made evident in the Chiefs Colts game. When Chris Collinsworth says that its bad when talking about the Colts, that says something lol. Kraft got Goodell the job and has kept him in power. Repayment is championships. It is also grand entertainment when Brady overcomes these 'setbacks' and still manages to win. Even players have hinted at it in the past. Refs have huge sway over the outcome of the game. And if the league understands it is about entertainment, then they will comply. When the league shares revenue as they do, then it is in the leagues best interest to ensure the storyline that will generate the most revenue, not the actual best teams. That's just one example of how the league is set up to benefit from entertainment and not competition. Would a colts and cowboys game really generate as much ratings and revenue as the patriots and rams? Not saying they aren't the best teams, just giving example. There's tons of shady things when you go looking. The most famous argument is SB III, without it, the league would not be what it is today. I'm just saying look into it.
  16. Not bitter, just foresaw the trend and storylines. There has been a team to win at least 3 SBs every decade since 1970, patriots were the only ones to do it this decade. They had the storyline for brady and belichik already before the confetti even finished falling. Evidence of other games that fit scripts and rectified outcomes during the season (I.e. browns redskins game was terribly blatant). Im over getting mad at games now that I see it. Mahomes will most likely be the next Brady for the AFC honestly (unless pats draft some 'all time great' again). Brady retires this year or next if he doesn't win, but guaranteed one when he announces retirement, just like every other great has. People were calling patriots to win this year, not because they were good, but because it makes a nice story and fits the script. Unless you research yourself, can you really mock?
  17. Called it weeks ago, and they were pushing "Brady's first SB" narrative immediately.
  18. There's evidence of rigging already. Browns redskins game had a fumble by the browns RB, before the ref even got there to rule the browns rb was standing up away from the pile with the ball...The ref ruled the redskins had it and nobody but a couple of browns players acknowledged the fact they had the ball before the pile even began.
  19. Ya, they already are setting up the defense of the patriots and the fact brady has already beaten the Chiefs, that weather isn't a factor. We'll see.
  20. His contract is up after next season. He could call it after this one. Where championships count, nobody will ever get 6 again.
  21. Do what do you think? Pats win it all, Brady and belichick get their 6 in the same stadium as saban. Belichick and saban would be the same age when they get their 6th, 66 years old. This year or next (brady last year) they are going to win.
  22. It really was amazing to see all these accounts that are 3+ years old but only have less than 200 posts. Some hadn't even signed in since 2016.
