Default Tell me I am just being paranoid...please!

This is Bettis' last year. He is from Detroit. The Super Bowl is in Detroit. The Steelers have won an unprecidented trip to the Super Bowl from the 6th seed.

The year of 9/11, the "Patriots" go to and win the Super Bowl.

I hope I am just being retarded on this matter, but can someone please reassure me that the NFL DOES NOT artificially shape the Win/Loss columns to get better ratings.

Also, why would the NFL try to screw us over on three different occasions in that Indy game If they conspired for us to win the Super Bowl this year?

The best team wins in my opinion.

The coincidences are not that.. they are DESTINY!

Conspiracy paranoia will get ya everytime.. Theres no way a conspiracy that big could even remotely be possible.. Think about how many people would have to be involved as well as secrets kept.. impossible.

If games were "artificially shaped" I would have thought the either of the NY teams or Washington would have won in 2001.

JustaFan beat me to it, but I agree. If they were fixed, the Jets or Giants would have won that year.
