NFL player confession. All games are rigged.
Sure, I bet I'm going to get a lot of "fake" accusations over this, but there's no way I'm going to identify myself here, so either believe it or don't.

I play football professionally. Not going to say which team, position, or number of years playing.

In case you didn't already assume this, the culture of drug use is rampant. Everyone in the league, and I mean everyone, uses PED's. We have to in order to perform at the level we're expected to perform; it's literally an unwritten, unspoken part of the contract. If someone decides to be captain moral high ground jackass and refuses to use them, they'll end up being marginalized by the coaching staff and looked down upon by the rest of the guys for not contributing in every way they should be.

Contrary to popular belief, the league doesn't test for them, besides a few specific substances, and everyone knows the routine and how to beat it.

What I hate most however (and this may sound contradictory given the first thing, but it isn't and I'll explain why) is the degree to which games or point differentials are fixed. Everyone knows it happens, but most people aren't aware of how often it happens. It's way, way, way more common than most people are aware of. Players laugh about it like it's all a big joke and it pisses me off.

I've participated in a couple of fixed games. I absolutely hate myself for it, it is a lot bigger of an issue for me than the PED use. I feel like I am shitting all over the sport that I love and it isn't fair to the fans who pay to see what they think is a genuine game.

Re: NFL player confession. All games are rigged.
You're paid well to keep your mouth shut about the fixing of games so the people higher can make even more money. Doesnt really surprise me, maybe thats why I dont watch professional sports. About the drug issue. They should just legalize it. I'd say almost every pro athlete in every sport takes the stuff. If they actually enforced it do we think that sports would be fun to watch. Imagine in the next year if NFL actually tested every player and everyone in the league got clean. The sport would suck. There would be a bunch of skinny guys barely making it to halftime. Not only that, when they injure themselves it would take more than a few weeks to recover. If what you say is true thanks for not being afraid to tell the truth.

Not only pro atheletes take these things either. Touring musicians take them to help get thru performances night after night and keep their voices up. Actors take them to prepare for roles within weeks time (Christian Bale, Mark Walburg to name a few). As long as you've got the money you can take this stuff.

Re: NFL player confession. All games are rigged.
i don't believe this for a second...! and no one else should either...! obviously there are ways to get around the PED usage but it would be impossible to "fix" an NFL game...

soccer would be easy they've been doing that for a while-- it's documented.

...given you could pay off one player to have a bad game, but to actually fix a game would be impossible

anything can happen--there are too many variables and too many cameras

the only way would be to pay off a quarterback but like i said too many variables, even he has to hand the ball off

just complete nonsense period

This guy makes it sound like what he is saying is a Spinal Tap 11. More like a WWE 1.3. Fixes to a point. Guys that were freak on PEDs now cant even make the field. The biggest fix is with the refs,

Ravens winning with DPIs is what I see as Goodell having his thumb on the scale. It doesn't always work. Ex. Steelers beating the Giants at the Meadowlands after Hurricane sandy.

nice argument...

???

no its not--you've clearly never played and know nothing about it

NFL at that level has too many variables

flat out impossible

like i said you would have to pay off the quarterback to throw incompletions and interceptions...

even then the defense can score too so there is just no way

Re: NFL player confession. All games are rigged.
the ref's can change the outcome of the game, and they do, every week.

false start here, holding there, pass interference, bad spots, etc

if it was rigged it would be through the refs, they have the most control over the game

Pay off the quarterback. That's all it would take, really. Just have him throw an interception at the right time or call a bad play.
