For years, fans that regularly watch sporting events have always alluded that some things seem to be scripted and now they might have that evidence.
On Friday, the Uber Facts Twitter account stated the National Football League is actually recognized as entertainment instead of a sport, which means they can legally fix the outcome of games.
“The NFL is recognized as an “entertainment” business rather than a sport, and they can legally fix the outcome of games”
Let’s take you back a few years when former NFL player Benny Cunningham shocked everybody by exposing that the league was scripted and they made them sign a paper to not go into detail about it.
Former NFL player and Super Bowl XXXVII winner Dwight Smith admitted in a sports radio interview that the winner of major NFL games is predetermined by the league and that both teams know literally every play that the other team will run. As he puts it, “the games aren’t decided on the field.” He also states that the NFL picks teams for the Super Bowls for the storylines they will generate.
Conspiracy theorists will look to pounce on any opportunity they get to label the NFL as rigged, but is there any truth to what is being said by Uber facts? We don’t know, but some fans also look to the timing of certain events like when the New England Patriots won a Super Bowl following the tragedy of 9/11.
You can also look to when Hurricane Katrina devastated the city of New Orleans, Louisiana on August 29, 2005 and caused extensive damage to the Louisiana Superdome. Just a few years later, the Saints finished 13-3 and won Super Bowl XLIV over the Indianapolis Colts. Their Super Bowl victory is seen as a major success story for New Orleans post-Katrina.
