A "rumor" brought to you by the same folks who think the moon landing was staged in a Hollywood studio.

I started reading and I thought you were talking about wrestling. :P.. No NFL is not fake and no way is it a setup to who will win the SB. To much would have to take place to set a game. Scripting is for sports like WWE and stuff, not for NFL, NBA, MLB.

Yes. I've seen too many games with outcomes that couldn't possibly be scripted. The "Immaculate Reception," "Music City Miracle," "The Catch," - no way in hell is the NFL scripted.

the only thing set up was the patriots after 9-11 and their constant salary cap circumvention.

other than that, its all legit.
