    So?

    It is all "Sinister" Conspiracy (by the NFL) to get a SB1 Rematch?

    Like WWE?

    Is that your position?

    Anyway after what I saw from Frisco on Saturday, and considering the game will be in Frisco, I like Frisco.

    Not a conspiracy, a controlled storyline, but otherwise yes. The NFL controls the outcomes of their games.

    My position is that absolutely none of that matters. If the NFL wants GB to win for marketing and storyline purposes, the Packers WILL win, even if the refs have to make bullshit questionable calls in order to cause them to win.

    I'll be here to eat my crow if it is not KC and GB in the superbowl.

    When more than one person is involved in a secret, it's impossible to keep a secret. There's no way to control hundreds of players, office staff, coaching staff, etc., with media everywhere all the time, to keep it a secret like that. The White Sox couldn't keep a secret in 1908. Nowadays? Pfft... Also, convincing a great team to intentionally blow a game AND keep it a secret? All it takes is one player telling the wrong girlfriend, who becomes disgruntled at some point, and bam, it's over.

    I wouldn't discount Green Bay, but I agree that SF is the likely winner.

    Packers lost 37-8 at Frisco on 11/24.

    So, on Sunday they have a rematch 8 weeks later at Frisco.

    As of now SF is favored. The Line is -7.5/-110 or -7/-120.

    Depending on if one wants to pay an Extra 10 cents in Vig to buy the hook.

    It's quite possible.

    There's no need to control all of that. The NFL has control over their refs and their incredibly vague and subjective rule book. That's all the control that they need to sway games however they desire them to be swayed. Potential control beyond that is irrelevant.

    Like I said above, potential control over anything other than their refs and their vague subjective rule book is irrelevant.

    Various players themselves (and past players) have already made comments about horrible officiating and the league being rigged. The most recent one (from this year) that comes to my mind is Burfict from the Raiders. I could've swore Richard Sherman also said something of the sort in the fairly recent past as well, but I could be mistaken about that. Thing is, people just choose not to believe them, like you're choosing not to believe me.

    But mark my words. Chiefs and Packers will be in the SuperBowl, even though the 49ers are a much better team than the Packers are. The media hype will be all about the 100th year of the NFL going all the way back to the very first SuperBowl (between the Chiefs and Packers). It's all a sham. It's no different than WWE.

    You're still talking about a huge conspiracy involving hundreds of people throughout an entire football season.

    If the NFL head office is telling each ref team, "this week, team A wins no matter how much they suck," and that happens for 250+ games over 20+ weeks... someone is going to spill the beans. Maybe it's a disgruntled ref whose favorite lifetime team has been designated to lose, even though they are clearly winning the game. Maybe it's a chatty secretary who types up the "who is winning each game this week," list...

    Conspiracy theorists are always so sure that hundreds upon hundreds of people can keep a giant conspiracy a total secret over many years. Good ole' Occam says, "nah..."

    Why do spy agencies have such strict need-to-know policies on the big things? They know all-too-well that every extra person in the know adds to the risk of it getting out. Why do they believe that? Because it's true.

    I heard if Mahomes has a healthy career he will surpass Favre, Montana, Brees, Brady, Staubach, Tittle, Testaverde, Marino, Rodgers, Young, and all the greats.

    Surpass those QB's concerning what, exactly? But yeah, who knows what'll happen with him. He seems destined for a very successful career though.

    If he has a long and healthy career, it's very possible.

    He reminds me of Warren Moon, if Warren started in the NFL. He would have been an all time great.
