THE FIX IS IN: professional sports (video)

It is not just football but professional sports worldwide -- futbol (soccer), cricket, baseball...
(Brian Tuohy) The Fix Is In -- professional sports matches are rigged for billions in profit. Our sports are Larceny Games: Sports Gambling, Game Fixing, and the FBI
  
The Fix Is In (Brian Tuohy)
Brian Tuohy (thefixisin.net) is a frequent contributor to the CBS Sports website (bleacherreport.com), where he chronicles sports scandals and conspiracies as stories break. Tuohy has been interviewed by The New York Times, ESPN, Fox Sports, and The Power Hour radio program.
 
How much of our lives have we spent watching televised sports, attending games, talking (useless babble) about sports, listening to sports radio, checking websites for updated scores and statistics, then taking in SportsCenter or another highlight show at the end of the day?

How much of our thoughts have been consumed with the big upcoming game? How many nights have we stayed awake wondering how "our team" blew that huge lead? How often have we reminisced about that impossible comeback win as if we had played in the game?

How much money have we emptied from our pockets on tickets, DirectTV packages, bets, jerseys, hats, trading cards, autographs, and overpriced salted junk food and beers over the course of our lifetimes?

Rabid Alex Jones talks with author Brian Tuohy about his latest book,
The Fix Is In: The Showbiz Manipulations of the NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL & NASCAR,
which delves into the dark underbelly of professional sports.
 
What if all that time, emotion, and money was wasted on a lie?
Gambling, Game Fixing, and the FBI
What if the action on the field isn’t what it appears to be? What if we, and millions others like us, have been duped -- outright lied to -- by those franchises we hold so dear to our hearts, all in the name of greedily making an easy buck?
 
Well, it has been happening. And although our name might not be “Mark,” we have certainly become marks to those running the carnival known as professional sports.

When a win seems too good to be true -- it is too good to be true. When an impossible turn of events changes the course of a game -- it is an impossibility. When an improbable underdog rises to the top like some sort of Hollywood screenplay -- it is a screenplay.
 
The leagues, hand-in-hand with the TV networks, which pour billions of dollars into professional sports, have fixed their own games to squeeze every ounce of drama they can out of each season and to ensure we remain committed to our sport and glued to our TVs.
 
TheFixIsIn.net is dedicated to shining a light into those dark corners and exposing professional sports leagues and their athletes for the money-grubbing hypocrites they are. Some may call these sports conspiracy theories. Brian Tuohy calls them the truth. More
