The NFL is in hot water this week as they face accusations of fixing a game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Green Bay Packers.
The Cowboys suffered a controversial loss to the Packers during Sunday’s playoff game that left many to question whether or not the game was fixed. In the fourth quarter of the game, Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant made a huge catch on a fourth-and-2, which brought the Cowboys closer to the goal line.
Unfortunately for them, the referees overturned the play after initially calling the play a catch. The decision outraged Dallas Cowboys fans everywhere as they questioned why the referee would change his mind.
Interestingly enough, it is not illegal for the NFL to stage their own games. The league could make millions in gambling profits from just paying off referees to rule the way they want them to.
If the NFL has been rigging games all this time, the jig may finally be up for them. Fans are onto their scheme, and they aren’t going to let them get way with it!
