You do realize they were holding on purpose because even if it was penalty, the result would have been the same:Safety. The holding permitted to runoff a good chunk of the clock.

NFL has been rigged for years.. or at least it seems so if you watch all the games and BS calls in everyone that helps certain teams win when they had no business being in the game.

Yep. Too many times in just about every game I just shake my head and think to myself, "does the NFL really expect us to buy this stuff?" I guess they do and some do.

The point is that there were no flags. The whole line was literally tackling the rushers (obviously because they were instructed to), and there should have been a flag or 3.

It wouldn't have changed the outcome, but how can you not throw a flag?

Also, I'm not a conspiracy theorist. Just saying they screwed up the safety play.

I remember seeing the 49ers holding a LOT last night that didn't get called.

That play was a good call. Both had eachother tangled up and pushin off eachother. Thats why it wasnt called.

90% of posts have been complaints about the refs. You live in MD. Of course you hear Ravens fans complain. If you lived in VA, youd be whining about obnoxious Skins fans.

Totally agree...but not one official threw a flag.

It doesn't affect the outcome but it is a great demonstration of how awful they can be.

I just think the "suits" have a script they want played out. Keep games close, make sure fan interest doesn't wane, build up certain stories, etc.

The refs just help that and sometime the players blow it.

The NFL wanted the Hawbawler bowl last year but the Ravens couldn't catch an easy TD and missed an easy FG...the 49ers fumble a punt....and all of a sudden we have a new story to push.

Sounds about right. I think they go with what they think will create the most interest among the fans and bring in the most coin.

Mars304:

Just wanted to let everyone know, as long as the Bengals win tomorrow, we will never have to see umkubus AGAIN...EVER. I have made a bet with him, that if the bengals win, he can never post on this website again. If the Bengals lose, I will disappear forever. I will take the bullet for the possibility of nobody ever having to read the robots posts ever again.

From 02-04-2013:

#17

The holding that wasn't called during the safety was the most atrocious non call I have ever seen. If you watch the game again, you can't miss it. Its right on camera.

MAR304: You have not honored your bet Stay off these message boards Keep your word - umkubas

Why would the NFL fix its own games? The league is hugely profitable regardless of who makes the playoffs or plays in the Super Bowl. It's absurd to think that they'd compromise the integrity of the league to bring in a few more bucks. If you don't think the league is on the level why do you follow it?

Ben came back from his suspension and went to the Super Bowl...where he was beaten by the "new best QB" Rodgers. That forwards the story quite well doesn't it?

Not fixed...just "pushed". Greed is a horrible disease. If have a lot you want more.

One non call here...one holding on a big play that didn't get called all game...its not hard.

Do just enough to keep most games close. Keep the fans interested.

Ever notice how fans get up in arms when the Patriots run up the score? That's called publicity. Like a bad guy in wrestling getting good heat. The league eats that stuff up. So if the Patriots get away with a little more DPI and offensive holding then so be it. If they have to protect the "stars" a little more than so be it. Then come the playoffs or Super Bowl the "bad guy"...the guy who "cheated" always loses. Been that way since Gooodell took over. The 2nd best offense of all time scored 13 points in a playoff game...at home...this year. Really?

Again, the players still have to play and make plays...but I think the league knows what "stories" it wants out there.

Do they always get it that way? Probably not. Mistakes happen. But they know what they are doing.

Was asking about 2013-14.
Didn't know a SB appearance could make a rapist into a non rapist.

It made a murderer into a non-murderer.

Of course Ben was never charged with anything let alone convicted...so there's that too.

This is one reason I love to joke about Ray Lewis being a murderer...the amount of butthurt that comes from Ravens fans, if you even just mention it is quite hilarious

So you're saying that the league instructs the referees how the games should go. How do they keep the refs from talking to the media about this? Do they pay them off? A ref. could write a book or magazine article about this and make millions.

Do you understand the damage it would do to the league if it came out that they're fixing the games. . The NFL has been the most profitable sports league for decades, they don't need to do this..

There will always be good story lines regardless of which teams do well. There's so much media covering the NFL that they can always find something to talk about.

Games get fixed all the time. NBA? College football?

One gets caught here and there.

But I'm saying the Chiefs are playing the Ravens...in KC...refs know this should be a romp but they let a little holding go for KC and call the Raven DB's a little tighter on the DPI. You get a closer game.

Maybe not a fixed result...but "controlled".

Protect the "stars" by calling anything close to a personal foul and getting the players to back off them a bit.

Seven officials on the field did not throw one flag for holding on the last play for the Ravens. Now it wouldn't have affect the result of the play, but not one flag was thrown at all to even show they SAW the holding.

They are either, incompetent, blind or stupid. Or they didn't care if the punter ran around for an extra few second because they had the result they wanted.

First of all there's no difference between 'controlled' and 'fixed', any degree of outside influence is fixing.

I'm not saying fixing can't happen, but not from the league itself. There was an NBA ref a few years ago who got into debt gambling and was shaving points. It didn't come from the league. Please give me an example of a major sports league instructing the refs to influence the outcome.

Please explain how the league conducts this and gets away with it. Someone would spill the beans and get rich doing so.

I like how you use the KC/Balt game as an example. How could keeping this game close benefit the league? They negotiate rights fees with the networks years in advance, the profits are built in. Do you think someone hands the league more money 'cause games are closer? Plenty of games are blowouts.

By your logic you can take almost any scenario and say 'see the league wanted that to happen' Close game, they wanted that. A blowout win by the Pats, they wanted that. A popular player or coach goes far in the playoffs, they wanted that. Totally absurd.

Fixed implies the results are set. Controlled means they'd like it to go a certain way but they aren't in control of the entire event. A WR can drop a pass and screw the whole thing up.

Its not about money from the networks...its about interest from the fans. Fans buy stuff and they watch the networks. And the networks make money on the deal too... especially when the viewership is high. I think networks are quite happy when games are close and viewership stays high through an entire game vs a blow out.

And they don't have to do it with every game and every team.

If I had concrete proof it wouldn't be my theory but a fact.

You don't have to believe it. I was simply responding with my theory on the league and how its ran.
