The National Football League
The NFL continues to boast that it’s one of the only sports in this great
nation to have never had a single game fixed, or have a result of a game swayed due to the involvement of match fixing--not by organized crime, not by its own hand, and yet, with one of the newest sports betting sites turning over millions in its first year, the NFL still maintains gamblers have done nothing to take a piece of the pie.
| |As pointed out in my
book Larceny Games, the NFL has had gambling scandals in the past: the 1946 NFL
Championship Game, the 1958 NFL Championship Game, the suspension of
both Paul Hornung and Alex Karras in 1963, and Art Schlichter's entire
career just to name a few.
None of these "isolated incidents" meant a game was actually fixed...or so the NFL would claim. Do you believe that?
