Oakland Raiders Threw Game Over National Anthem Protest

If you were unaware, the Raiders are the only team in the National Football League (NFL) where 100% of their line happens to be African-American. And during last weekend’s National Anthem controversy, their offensive linemen decide to sit down in protest.

However, quarterback Derek Carr stood. And because those linemen have the job of protecting the ball and the quarterback, the Armstrong & Getty radio show are getting multiple reports that something serious happened at that game that fans at home missed.

The host opined, “So Derek Carr, who is never sacked, was sacked four times by the Redskins, (in) back to back (plays) on the second offensive series of the (Oakland) Raiders. The first series, he threw almost immediately and was intercepted, so that series was over before it began.”

Then he added, “Also, three times, the extremely dependable never does this [sic] center, the guy who snaps the ball to the quarterback, snapped it before Carr was ready, three times. He ‘hiked’ it, as the kids say, into Carr’s knee before he was supposed to.”

They are claiming the Raiders threw the game on purpose to teach Carr a lesson.

Listen to the broadcast here:

They wondered if this “throwing” of a game was just a one-time deal, or if there are other examples. They added, “If this story is true, you’ve got an animosity between a white quarterback and a black offensive line that you can’t fix very easily.”

The hosts claim to have an inside and “extremely reliable” source that can confirm the game is thrown. This, if confirmed, would be a legal nightmare for the NFL. It’s illegal to throw a game, and players could end up in prison, as Bill O’Reilly mentioned on his recent Fox News appearance.

Agree. If found out to be true the NFL needs to step in or someone is going to get seriously hurt.

Sounds like trump as the reliable source.

I'm going to wait this out to see what this is really about but being in sports and watching football all my life, I truly believe that Washington did their homework on their O-line and overpowered them.

If this is true, it's illegal! Some serious repercussions should happen!!

With the amount of money gambled on the game. It's a major risk to throw a game. People might realize that it's all fixed anyways.

The NFL is ultimately ran by the bookies

One of these dudes will find a horses head in his Lamborghini and it will all come to an end

Washington is not that good.
I have to say though that there should be an investigation.

I still think there may be some truth to the idea it is an entertainment industry rather than sport so I am not sure that they can even make this claim.

You think that the outcomes are predetermined?
