The Fix was In

I wrote this once I saw that Mike Carey was the ref for the Eagles-Saints game and before Andy Reid surrendered. I'm a fan of neither team.

Sorry Eagle fans you had no shot. The reason? Mike Carey. Who is Mike Carey you ask? He was the referee who learned his trade from greatest game fixer in NFL History Johnny Greer.

I'm not exactly what you would call a conspiracy theorist but too many "fishy" things happen way too often during two of my favorite loves, Professional Sports and Online Poker.

Are the rigged? How do you even answer that without casting doubt in the eyes of the naive? I mean how can you believe in a god and devil and heaven and hell yet not believe their might be some impropriates in professional sports and online poker. Thats a story for another day though back to the Eagles-Saints.

What's the most probable way to fix an NFL game? How about pass interference, illegal contact and defensive holding. Then if thats not enough how about Holding? Sure you can make those calls on every play but why is it that they mostly get called in key game changing situations.

Key point in the game, late third quarter Eagles lead 21-20 Saints have the ball on the Eagles 40 1 and 20. Brees gets sacked for a ten yard loss but wait there's a flag. Illegal Contact 35 yards down the field? What? There is no camera on the supposed penalty so we'll never be able to judge for ourselves whether an offense occured. But hey its Mike Carey and his crew so you know some bullshit is bound to happen.

Another key point, Eagles driving down the field trailing 27-21. Brian Westbrook breaaks one for 25 yards and just as he's about to go down a suspicious flag come into few. Mike Carey calls a holding penalty.

Or how about the 4 and 10 false start with two minutes to go? Yea probably a penalty but in 99.99% of false start penalties the play is blown dead, why did he and only he throw his flag after the pass was complete for a first down?

Why would the fix be in for this game? Well thats simple too. New Orleans is a shit hole that nature (act of god bahahha) did a favor by exposing flaws in mans thinking and basically buried the city under water. Nobody, including the government really gave/gives a shit about New Orleans and it's minority majority and all common sense asks why spend billions of dollars to rebuild a cesspool thats below sea level.

Anyway it's a feel good story for the liberal world, the doormat Saints perennial donkeys of sports, advancing to the Super Bowl and New Orleans back in the National spotlight. What a heart warming fucking story.

That's where Mike Carey comes in. And watch out next week, if Mike Carey or his buddy Jeff Triplett, he the referee and crew leader of last years Jerome Bettis luckbox donkey Steelers Super Bowl, are reffing the game next week get to the window as soon as possible and get your money in.

I've gotten to know some sharps living here in Vegas. Every Thursday during football season the referees assigned for the coming weekends game are made public and its very important to know who is reffing which game and if the side your money is on is the side the "fix" is on. If you can figure that out you can make a a lot of money in this city, just ask Jeff Triplett and Mike Carey or the Godfather himself Johnny Greer.

As an astute sports gambler you should be happy about this because you took note and bet accordingly.

Oh, and your tinfoil hat may be just a leeeeetle bit too tight.

Best. Post. Ever. Bar none Don, excellent work as always.

Btw, about the first comment up there....it was the Patriots beating the Rams 20-17 on February 3, 2002 who won the Superbowl after 9/11. Not sure what that commenter is trying to get at with that....

Suffice it to say, the refs made sure that the Saints would go the NFC Championship game last weekend for sure. And Don, you hit on the two key fixcalls exactly -- the recockulous "illegal contact" call downfield on the huge sack of Drew Brees to take the Saints out of field goal range. There was a good camera angle though on the replay from that camera suspended above the quarterback, and it showed literally no contact at all -- let alone anything illegal -- by the player called for the foul. And then of course the false start that is only called once the Eagles complete the improbable 4th and 10 pass play. What a fucking flipjoke.

Anyways I will have my NFL picks for the weekend up on Thursday or Friday of this week. Hopefully I can win 67% again like last week. I think I've got a good handle on both games actually.

So Don, what can you tell us on Friday about who is reffing which games this weekend? Is the fix going to be in again for New Orleans up in Chicago on Sunday?
