    You tell me what you see. And why would they want to manipulate for Dallas to win?

    You're entertained no matter what, you just said it yourself and so am I. We'll be back for more next week against NO.
    After a game like that it's ok to question what's going on, always question something like that, always.
    Some say it's foolish to consider game fixing, some think it's foolish not to consider it.

    Either way we have no evidence one way or the other, so it's a good discussion

    Another rule that changes everything....Offensive coordinators can't radio down plays 15 seconds before the snap. All communication is cut off per the NFL....why is that?

    It's all about controlling the outcome.

    And it all started under the Goodell watch...

    Every off season...Another rule is added just to strengthen the leagues grip on deciding games. It's so obvious now....

    It was never about player safety....that was just an excuse to change rules so refs had just another tool to dictate outcomes.

    I can certainly consider it but without any hard evidence or exposé of some operation, the much, much more plausible explanation for these theories is that people need to make up an excuse for why their team lost and that refs are humans who aren't 100% accurate. The latter we know is fact. There are no facts on the other side of the fence of this, just suspicion. If this were something much more serious and life-affecting for you and your family, for example, which way would you bet? The side that has at least one set of facts or the other side with nothing but suspicious theories where there's personal bias to see them as such?

    Did you wear a trench coat? Otherwise this sounds fake.

    Remember "This one's for John?"
    Patriots win SB after 9-11?
    Peyton gets a ring?
    New Orleans wins after Katrina rebuild?
    Eli gets a ring?
    Eli got 2, so Peyton gets another.
    The Cardinals go to the SB when they are getting funding for a new stadium?
    The Falcons get a new Stadium and go to the SB?
    Titans go to SB after relocating to Nashville?
    Story lines go on and on.
    As for the regular season, do you really believe that Dallas didn't have the game won vs the Rams in their opening game in their stadium? Jerry threw it to help them sell tickets.
    And do you really believe that so many prime time games finish close by chance?
    The NFL is the new WWF.
    It's all about sales, hype, and now, gambling.
    Just like boxing.

    Is it an excuse or an observation? We lost because of penalties period. Whether the penalties were correctly called or not is questionable.
    Here's a fact: The Raiders received (7) 3rd down conversions on penalties plus the overturned fumble recovery.
    That's (8) change of possession calls that led to 27 of their 33 points.
    Plus the refs took away the Shultz TD, The 40 yard Pollard run and called a terrible 15 yard roughing call on Parsons.

    It’s sad, but many on here will have no clue of what you reference.

    Right

    The fact that officiating missed so many crucial calls costing teams over the years is why we implemented Instant Replay. It might be time to start reviewing some of these penalties as well.

    Entertainment is for stage, screen, Hollywood and frustrated Cowboys' fans! :grin:
    Otherwise, it's (by far) the most exciting sport ever to be found in existence!:thumbup:

    That one is close. I'm not in on the scheme so I don't know why but it's whatever the agenda is at that time.

    The Thanksgiving game I can't comment on in its entirety because my attention was elsewhere with family and I haven't downloaded the game yet to watch without distraction. I saw a replay of the Parsons foul and agree it was crap. I also saw the Raiders center get called for bobbing his head while in shotgun, which almost all centers do so that was crap too. But when you point out equally crappy calls for the other team, there's always blowback that it's not the number of fouls, but when they're called. I heard "late, game-affecting" yet when I posted that Anthony Brown facemask no-call that would have given NE the inside track to the win, then it gets dismissed and people try to change the subject to Dak at the goal line. Lol. It's like there's always an excuse and always a minimization of crappy calls happening elsewhere. Sorry, but unless there's a study involving the 31 other teams, we don't have much of anything except crappy calls. Which can happen all by themselves without something sideways going on.

    If pulling a facemask in 2 different directions is close, we have a different definition.

    So okay, you're saying there's no anti-Cowboys conspiracy exclusively. I didn't realize that so that's good to know. But you're saying there's roving agendas that switch up. Can't understand how one pins it down to know that what you suspect is happening, is happening in the slightest then. It's just seems like never-ending haze to me.

    I read every post and he's my take after six pages.

    Anyone who thinks the NFL is rigged knows nothing about how this stuff works. First off if the gambling biz thought NFL games were rigged and they were losing $$$$$ because of it, here comes some very serious situations the NFL wants no part of. And the TV honchos want no part of anything like fake pro football. What business wants to be associated to lies and bad business. So there goes all those sponsers.

    Nothing is rigged, no refs don't do anything but the best they can, anyone thinking that isn't how things are is a fool.

    The NFL has been with us since 1920, if anything illegal was going on we'd know about. Too many people involved to keep anything like fake pro football a secret.

    Now if anyone could....

    My uncle was an NFL ref for 10 years his name was Robert Helms, he told me about how he made $$$$$ from the mob for fixing NFL games.

    Where is that kind of thing at, what......it doesn't exist? That's right it doesn't.

    How far did pro rasslin' get trying to fake it. We all know that yes boxing has had fixed fights, we know about college basketball. Noway a fixed NFL would have last this long.
