Is the Super Bowl rigged? 2004-01-31 20:03:41 Reply

A conspiracy theory from a friend of mine (this is pretty much what he said):

September 11, 2001, a dark day in American history. Who won the Super Bowl the following year? The Patriots. Fast-forward to today; 2004, Sadam has been captured. Who is in the Super Bowl? The Patriots and the Panthers. If they win, this proves that the Super Bowl is rigged. If not, then I have to much time on my hands.

Any takers?

Has your friend ever stopped to think that maybe the patriots are just good at football?

CBS is asking for $2.5 million for a 30 sec ad space. However they are only taking it from companies, not any special interest groups. One group wanted to buy 30 seconds to air an anit-bush ad of some kind, but CBS turned them down, even though they had enough money.

and if my theory is correct, the Patriots will revile that their whole team has been replaced with T-1000’s...

They didn't want any problems from viewers, thats why. I dought that they would air any pro Bush stuff either. They'd catch too much shit if they leaned in any one political direction.

I think that the panthers are gonna win any way.

No. If they win, it proves the Patriots scored the most fgoals. This is sport we're talking about, here.

Your friend is nuts. It was a case of the underdog winning. I think the Patriots will win tonight, but you never know. That's the beauty of sports.

2 years ago we had U2 singing at halftime with all the 9/11 victims names scrolling on screen - we had red white and blue streamers and balloons falling at games end (what if the favored Rams had won?) and we had more than one commentator say "Wouldn't it be great if a team called the patriots won the superbowl after what happened on 9/11?"

So far this year we have had Tom Brady attend the State of the Union address and Bush purposefully pointing him out.
(Bush doesn't write his own speaches you know)

Who knows? It is suspicious.

BTW. . . Saddam's capture was a distraction from parts of the patriot act II being passed into law.

The unknown half-time show. There will be a car racing around the field with American flags on it. Tied to the back of the car will be Sadam Hussien, being dragged along the field. This will continue for the entire half time as somebody sings God bless America, Amazing Grace and some other patriotic songs. But then again it might not happen.

Why is your petition for peace directed at the UN when they are controlled by the same people that control Bush?
Just wondering.

the panthers endangered, perhaps theres a conspiracy to get them in. if the panthers win, more money for endangered species protection. if the pats win, then the endangered species act is repealed

A sport that's... obviously controlled by right-wing puppeteers!

Said friend is bi=polar with a touch of multiple personality disorder. So "nutts" would be a good description, but I could have sworn he had taken his meds that day.

I resisted flaming this when it was new, hoping it would die...

Who the hell cares?! It's just a bullshit game where guys wear tights and slap each other's asses. Could it beeee any more homoerotic??

Seeing how the game ended (field goal with 8 seconds left), it almost seemed too good to be true. The scenario ressembles the 16/14 win the patriots got on that other superbowl (sorry if Im not more precise, football aint my sport).

So im temmpted to say yes. But anyways, who cares? Football already a notch from being pro wrestling, and I believe the XFL proved that.

I'd have to say that with 4 seconds left on the clock, I don't care if it was rigged. It was a good show.

As violent as it gets, it isn't that far removed. You just need storylines.

I still think it was rigged though.

Professional wrestling is rigged to, but there are not near as many stigma's attached to Football as there is Wrestling because people believe that Football is REAL.
Do you really think it's fair to have people walking around so emotionally invested in something that is rigged from the start? I wonder how L.A. Raiders fans would react if they found out it was all a sham.

I have to agree. See, football is only half of the superbowl. The other part being a party mix of publicity and all around entertainment. With halftime shows including such an array of superstars, it not only appeals to old time football fans, but to the new generation of young tweenies who just adore pop icons like timberlake a jessica simpson. Then there's the whole superbowl advertising side. I mean common, we all are so intrigued at what new product and/or multimillion ad some faceless multinational is going to show during the commercial breaks.

But what I think first and foremost is that the superbowl is just a good ol' excuse to get together with your friends, drink beer, eat lots of greasy deep-fried food and doing all of this while watching "the" game on your new 72 inch flat screen tv you purchased especially for this special occasion.

Male cheerleaders? To get a touchdown, you have to fuck the other team in the ass? Make it pointless, poorly scripted, take away the game, making them fight for stupid little belts that mean nothing outside its organization? Wait, isn't that the WWE...?
