    Are major sporting events fixed?

    This is something I have talked about with people in the past. I don't watch much sports anymore but when I was into it, part of me always felt certain aspects of the games were indeed fixed, rigged, or targeting to pull in one team's favor. Have you ever heard of anything like this? Do you believe it yourself?

    Sure, fixed matches are indeed a thing. A while back, I didn't think it was even possible for sports results to be fake but ever since people started selling odds, it hit me! Coaches and managers for the big teams actually agree to stage matches with fixed results. They get a huge cut once lots of people bet on those games and agree to share. This is purely my theory, so don't be too sure..lol

    Some things just never added up for me. Like some games just look like they are being throw or something but if this was going on, I doubt any of the players would be aware of it. Someone would eventually rat them out.

    I wouldn't know how often this is attempted, but...it's certainly not unheard of.

    This reminds me of the deflated football scandal in the NFL that happened not too long ago https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deflategate

    It is amazing what people have got caught doing, it makes you wonder what they have gotten away with.
