Circumstantial proof the NFL is fixed?
 
If you watched the Bears Packers game, you saw the holding call on the punt return. The problem is that the player called for the holding was not even on the field. The penalty was on number 29. The problem is that the bears don't have a number 29 on their roster. They do have a 92 if the referee was dyslexic. He's a DT and is not on special teams.

The Las Vegas spread was +4 Packers. The punt return would have left the Bears 3 points out 27-24, beating the spread.

You can decide. I think an investigation is on order. I know it won't happen.

Take off your tin-foil hat and realize referees make mistakes, the NFL is not fixed.

no its probably because the nfl is hiring referees that are all 70+ years old and their eyesight is probably failing them, and they are big candidates for alzheimers

I agree the refs age is ridiculous, their eye sight and overall awareness is definetly going down hill at that age. I think its possible for games to be "fixed" or attempted to be fixed, but the NFL as a whole, I dont think so. The refs also have their favorites and I am sure goodell puts his two cents in during ref meetings too.

Are you insane? The referee clearly says "21", not 29. And just for good measure, #21 walks in front of the referee right after he says it.

Watch the replay: http://www.nfl.com/videos/chicago-be...that-never-was

It's hard to see, but #21 flashes on the screen at the 1-2 second mark, and you can see he's clearly gotten beat by the man he's responsible for, and he tugs at the guy's jersey. You can actually see the player's shoulder tip due to the hold.

Now wait a minute...Hayeksheroes might be onto something...

It could very well be that the refs have conspired to drug Mendy's Gatorade and THAT would explain his indecisiveness.

I'm going to go to the kitchen for some Reynold's Wrap and think about this!
