do you think professional sports could be fixed?

i do.... i think it is fixed via the bookies (and casinos) in vegas/ gamblers around the world... they have to be sure to make their money. and they do it through the ref's ... the calls are so very different for the same actions. the ref's fix the game, i dont think any coaches and players are 100% sure of it.

  • and if you think they are not fixed ---- WHY? (ps. i am asking here - because this is a question that men wont even begin to discuss... it is like telling them their fav soap operah/ professional wrestling isnt real ... the toothfairy all over again or something. )

  • I do not think it is possible now a days. There is only a few times where referees call things wrong. If they were calling gmes in favor of one team or another the fans would throw a fit.

  • I think professional sports are the biggest killer of ambition in this country. Ask a middle schooler what he wants to be. He wants to play in the NBA or the NFL. They don't need an education because they are going to be drafted right out of high school. All they see are hugee $$$$$ signs. The money being paid to these men to play a game is obscene. It isn't like they are curing cancer or AIDS. They are playing a game. I feel the same way about the salary to movie stars. It is obscene.
