It may seem so at times when you got a dynasty in New England begin right after 9-11 the whole red, white and blue Patriot thing ... then you got Saints getting good after Katrina goes down the list ... But seems too hard to rig the NFL. The NBA on the other hand?!?! Well that is rigged IMO. I know this isn't a NBA thread but it pisses me off so much how rigged that stupid lottery system Commish Stern uses. All done behind closed doors which is shaddy in and of it self. The NY Knicks magically get 1st pick when Patrick Ewing is on the board. Knowing the the LA Lakers are in a downfall with Kobe on his last leg, Stern despertly wants Los Angeles to relevant so he conviently gives the Clippers land 1st pick (even without the worst record the year prior - see the rigged Lottery format) and land Blake Griffin. But Commish Stern doesnt stop there to add to the "new upstart LA franchise"; he blocks trades and lets CP3 Chris Paul go to Los Angeles to get that Clipper team relevant knowing that Kobe is on the downside of his career and the downfall of the Lakers is inevitable. It goes on down the line but the NBA is virtually unwatchable because you already know which 2 or 3 teams will make it far and to the Finals.
