Re: Football is corrupt !

I think here in the 'States the corruption is more centered around the television coverage.

Witness the "strange" power failure at last night's NFL Championship game.

The Game was turning into a rout. More seriously, in danger of being over before the TV "hole" was filled.

American Football is a 60 minute game crammed into a three hour time slot.(four hours for a Championship Match)

The biggest sin is not providing enough show to fit in all the commercials.(for which the advertisers pay millions of dollars for fifteen seconds!)

American Foootball is also one of the biggest betting draws in the nation.

Though I'd guess the the total handle on College Basketball is higher.

We have pretty severe penalties for teams and players caught being influenced by "outside" interests.

That does not mean it does not happen, but such criminals have to be very, very discrete, because the people who run the betting don't want the "numbers" thrown off by outside influences. (people will not bet on games they know to be crooked)
