    Default People complain about "fixes" in the NBA & NFL... but the world's #1 sport is the one with REAL problems

    http://www.cnn.com/2013/02/04/sport/...html?hpt=hp_t3


    680 games in all being probed across the globe, including major world cup qualifying matches, European championships, champions league matches.

    There seems to be a real organized crime connection with officials governing the sport.

    I am not a "futball" fan, but this is fascinating to me, the scope of the misdeeds. And no, I do not think it justifies conspiracy theories about Stern or Goodell fixing outcomes at will, but it does indicate that widespread corruption is possible and can be ignored and denied by most, for a time.

    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)
