    You know, there were several questionable non-calls in the Skins game. A Redskin almost tore Jones' helmet off on a kick return with a facemask, right in front of the ref and there was no call. There were lots of other calls that had the look of pass interference that went uncalled. Even the announcers remarked about the non-calls, saying it was a 'bad week for the officials.'

    Wow. The charade continues. Once again, it is an insult to anyone's intelligence to believe that this team of mediocre players, led by an awful black QB, can now plow through the league's best teams, even on the road. I will not believe this is legitimate, even if they break all NFL records and play a turnover free season. For those of you who don't know, this ignominious bunch has not turned the ball over a single time in 5 games.

    The Redskins are just as unlovable as the Cowboys. Odious owner Daniel Snyder is the only competition Jerry Jones has for most objectionable NFL owner. Clinton Portis is perhaps the league's most ignorant player (and that's really saying something in this league). The QB is black, and due to this winning streak, he will be assured of the job for several more years, no matter how poorly he may play. The "innovative" and mysteriously productive offense features two of the worst WRs the NFL has seen in glorified kick returner Antwan Randle El and James Thrash, whose pedestrian skills were used up about 5 years ago. The defense is all black, with token Reed Doughty being replaced by a 7th round draft pick who is somehow an unstoppable force.

    There is nothing about this team to root for. Yet they are about to hit an incredibly soft spot in their schedule, and are likely to be 7-1 in a few weeks. I'm sorry, I don't believe it, and the success of this team epitomizes why I think NFL games are as scripted as pro wrestling. Even with a belief in the fix, I can see how certain teams have a lot of talented players (well, what passes for talent these days). But these Redskins are not the least bit impressive.

    Yeah, it's like the Dolphins beating the Chargers yesterday (and the Pats 2 weeks ago).

    I think we all understand why a game like "Dolphins VS. Chargers" would be a gambler's dream....IF gamblers knew the Dolphins were going to pull the upset.

    As for the Redskins...I really dont get it. I'm not sure why they're doing so well. They looked literally dreadful in Week 1 against the Giants. Maybe this year it is indeed "in the script" for the Redskins.

    Even if everything is scripted, which at this point, after thousands of caste examples, and the overall insane behavior of this "league" and nearly everyone involved....I might be willing to officially consider this to be a factual claim.Edited by: Thrashen

    Why are the Eagles 2-3? The media (and the NFL) are absolutely infatuated with McNabb -- right?

    The Eagles are currently 4th place in the NFC East, and some jock-sniffers are openly frustrated about this -- and one of them was wishing out loud that the Eagles were in the AFC East. The media realizes that "their guy" and his team are in some danger right now.

    BTW, Chris Cooley had a big game - so he hasn't exactly been "phased-out" yet.


    Seriously, I just reread Don's write-up on the Eagles and they are incredibly dark. Eli and the Giants are playing well. If the Skins make the playoffs, the Eagles won't be in the post-season and I see nothing wrong with that. The Caste media has a lot more invested in McNabb compared to Jason Campbell. At this point, it looks like McNabb won't ever get a Super Bowl ring.

    As for winning on the road, look at what Matt Ryan just accomplished at Lambeau!! Was that "fixed".... He threw for more yards than Jason Campbell!

    I don't see Campbell or the Skins as a "threat" when you have teams that are just as black like the Eagles. And, with their defense, the Eagles would pose a bigger threat in the playoffs. There's still a lot of season to go. If the Skins make the playoffs, I see them getting eliminated fairly early.

    Deadlift,

    My "fixed" theory doesn't revolve around race. If the games were fixed strictly because of that, then the Jaguars would be the NFL champs. Also, Mike/Michael Vick would have won at least one Super Bowl. You point out that the Eagles are very black as well; that's true of every team in the league to one extent or another. Even the teams with the most white players (Green Bay, New England, San Diego), have a majority black roster. My point was that the Redskins are clearly lacking in talent, while the Eagles and especially the Cowboys have a lot more skilled players. The media may love McNabb (what black QB don't they like?), but he is undeniably talented. Campbell isn't.

    I have no idea how the NFL determines who wins which game, but there is little doubt in my mind that the games are scripted. If I could figure it out, I'd be able to profit financially from it. Anyone who watches the way these officials determine the outcome of games with a key call (or non-call) at the right moment, will understand what I'm saying. As I've said before, everyone associated with the NFL acknowledges that holding could be called on every play. Pass interference could also be called on virtually every pass play. Clipping or illegal blocking could be called on every kick return. The officials decide when to call these infractions, and that alone can sway the outcome of a close game.

    We all believe that the NFL conspires to hold down the number of white players in the league, and deny them any chance at all to play running back or cornerback. If an organization does something like that, with all the "win at all costs" coaches and general managers participating, then it is not legitimate by definition. Knowing this, why is the notion that the games themselves could be fixed so outlandish?

    bigunreal,


    If the Skins make the playoffs, how far do you think they'll progress in the playoffs? I think they would be defeated by a "more talented" team.

    I attribute the Skins record (and what Jacksonville did last year) to an incredibly watered-down NFL.

    Not trying to take anything away from the Patriots, but if the NFL wasn't watered-down, they probably wouldn't have had a perfect regular season.

    As long as teams continue to make money and fool their fanbases, they'll continue to perpetuate the Caste System. I don't think the NFL is in such a strong place right now. The holes are getting larger and larger, and a simple patch will no longer suffice. I agree that the "winning at all costs" line is BS.

    Ok, we all agree that the caste system is "fixed" in terms of:

    1) The racial funnelling of positions

    2) Keeping the league 30% white for 2 decades

    3) The intentional prevention of white males from succeeding in football (and nearly every sport) even from early ages (high school, college recruiting)

    4) The sports media's love affair with degrading every single white athletic achievment (by anyone not named Brett Favre)


    Why on earth would the enlightened few who post here at CF ever TRUST that these horrible, biased, racist villians are telling the truth about ANYTHING?? I'd like to say with confidence that the NFL IS NOT fixed....but I can't. I've seen way too many outrageous instances of insane behavior to say anything with confidence as far as the NFL, or any other pro sports league in concerned.

    Gentlemen,

    I don't think there's a "fix" involved because I think what you're confusing for a fix is just the fact that these blacks can't keep focused from week to week, probably more like day to day.

    Look at the poor slob Plaxico Burress. He can't even make a simple meeting. I'm sure there's plenty more like him.

    It must be a coaches mightmare, trying to keep a step ahead of a bunch of jerks like these blacks.

    Tom Iron...

    The coachesare paid to be babysitters and buddies. After it came out that Lane Kiffin didn't want the Raiders to draft JaMarcus Russell first overall, Russell was stunned. He said something to the effect that "Kiffin and I used to text each other all the time. He always treated me like a friend."


    During the game last night, a black Saints player was shown going to the sideline after a bonehead play. As he passed Sean Payton, Payton gave him a hug.


    It's all about getting along. Notice how NFL coaches when addressing the players always call them "men," whereas in white dominated sports it's always "boys." The media follows the same script. The one-sided landmine of race relations in society is also mirrored in sports -- do everything possible to appease blacks by pandering to them.

    I recall when college football players were generally called "boys." No one thought anything of it, and it had no "racial" or derogatory connotation. Around the mid-60's, blacks decided that they didn't like the word "boy," and you gradually stopped seeing athletes referred to as "boys," blacks especially.

    This is a case of blacks telling everyone that they were in charge of what could be said, and what could not be said. They would use a word if they wanted to, while having others ostracized or fired for using the same word. This is how it has stood in the culture for a long time.

    I remember a piece in The Sporting News by Buffalo writer Larry Felser in the late 1970's concerning what were the requirements for a successful NFL head coach. Felser thought it was a man who "had been around," with a relaxed style rather than a Lombardi-style disciplinarian. Regarding Chuck Noll, considered the best coach at that time, Felser wrote that Noll was looked upon "with bemusement" by the Steeler players.

    Skins just signed Shaun Alexander to a one year deal.

    I can't recall a healthy running back who fell off the map so quickly after a good year. This guy's career arc is one of the most insulting, screw-you, typical of the afflete mentality things I've ever seen. Seriously. He played hard enough to get his big contract and as soon as he got it he basically quit.
