п»їVontaze Burfict thinks some games are ‘rigged,’ says ‘refs pick and choose’ when to throw penalty flags.
The Raiders linebacker is calling into question the integrity of the game.
It’s been nearly eight weeks since Vontaze Burfict played in his last NFL game of 2019. The Raiders linebacker has been out since the end of Week 4, when he was given a season-long suspension for a helmet-to-helmet hit that he placed on Colts tight end Jack Doyle.
Although Burfict has been laying low for most of his suspension, the linebacker did come out of the woodwork recently to do an interview with The Athletic, and let’s just say, it seems he had some bottled up emotions that he wanted to get off his chest, and most of those emotions had to do with the NFL and some key league executives.
For one, Burfict made a shocking accusation that probably isn’t going to go over too well in the league office: The Raiders linebacker said he believes that some NFL games are rigged. According to Burfict, the league is able to pull it off because the officials can control the outcome of any game. Burfict’s opinion on the subject came up when he was asked if he had been watching any football during his suspension.
„I honestly think some of the games are rigged,“ Burfict said. „The refs pick and choose when they want to throw their flags. There are flags on every play. The refs determine the outcomes of games, so I just chose not to watch it for the most part.“
Basically, Burfict is calling into question the integrity of the game, which won’t make Roger Goodell happy. With gambling now legal in multiple states, the NFL commissioner had been emphasizing the integrity of the game recently, and how important it is for fans to trust that there aren’t any „outside influences“ on the outcomes of NFL games.
„You don’t want to do anything that’s going to impact negatively on the integrity of our game,“ Goodell said in January 2018. „You want to be certain that there are no outside influences on our game, and that fans don’t even have any issue with that; they understand, whether it’s a perception or not, that there is no influence on our game. And that’s something we stand firmly behind on the integrity of our game.“
For the NFL, it’s not an ideal time for Burfict to make that accusation due to how bad the officiating has been this season.
Also, Burfict isn’t the only one who seems to think that refs might be throwing flags that don’t need to be thrown. After the 49ers’ Week 11 win over the Cardinals, Richard Sherman said he felt that he was being unfairly targeted by officials, which isn’t that abnormal, because most defensive backs probably feel that way. However, Sherman’s reasoning was definitely abnormal: The 49ers cornerback insinuated that refs were flagging him as payback for the fact that he’s a member of the NFLPA’s executive committee.
As for Burfict, if it does turn out that Goodell isn’t thrilled with his comments, the linebacker probably won’t care. Burfict didn’t mince words when he was asked about the commissioner, who he met with in October when he appealed his suspension .
„I met Roger Goodell in New York and he was a total b–-,“ Burfict said. „He was a b–-. He didn’t let anybody speak, he rushed us in and out of the meeting. The meeting was b––-. He already had the suspension in his hand.“
Players will almost never come out and question the NFL the way Burfict did during his interview, so it will be interesting to see if the league responds to his comments.
Current NFL Star Drops Bomb: вЂNFL Games Are RiggedвЂ™
NFL games are routinely вЂњriggedвЂќ by officials working on behalf of the league to choose the outcomes of games, according to Oakland Raiders linebacker Vontaze Burfict.
Currently serving a season-long suspension for a helmet-to-helmet hit, Burfict was speaking to The Athletic when he was asked if he had been watching any football during his suspension.
According to Burfict, the league is able to pull it off because the officials can control the outcome of any game.
вЂњ I honestly think some of the games are rigged ,вЂќ Burfict said. вЂњ The refs pick and choose when they want to throw their flags. There are flags on every play. The refs determine the outcomes of games, so I just chose not to watch it for the most part. вЂњ
The shocking accusation isnвЂ™t likely to go over well with the league office, which has been emphasizing the integrity of the game recently.
It is also a brave move considering the last NFL insider to publicly claim the league is rigged mysteriously вЂњdrownedвЂќ in a ditch after her car was run off the road.
Jessica Savitch was a pioneer, serving as AmericaвЂ™s first female anchorwoman, hosting the nightly NBC news. But after her epic NFL takedown, she was found dead months later, in a drainage ditch off the Delaware Canal outside of Philadelphia.

Meet the Conspiracy Theorists Who Believe the NFL Is Fixed.
Brian Tuohy canвЂ™t prove the NFL is fixed, but heвЂ™s convinced itвЂ™s the truth. вЂњIвЂ™m certain of it,вЂќ Tuohy tells me with a confidence only a conspiracy theorist can conjure.
What most fans dismiss as quirky plays, missed calls and statistical anomalies, Tuohy sees as evidence of the NFLвЂ™s corruption. вЂњWe see bizarre [referee] calls and bizarre plays and think, ItвЂ™s just one of those things ,вЂќ Tuohy explains. вЂњWell, I donвЂ™t think itвЂ™s just one of those things. I donвЂ™t believe in coincidences, especially when itвЂ™s a multibillion-dollar company calling the shots.вЂќ
Touhy became the de facto leader of the NFL truther movement in 2010 when he published The Fix Is In , a book about rampant corruption in professional sports published by Feral House, a publisher known for trafficking in fringe subject matter. вЂњThe same day my book was released, they also released The UnabomberвЂ™s Manifesto ,вЂќ he says. (For the record, Tuohy bristles at being called a вЂњconspiracy theorist,вЂќ a term conspiracy theorists generally regard as part of a conspiracy theory aimed at diminishing their theories.)
The Fix Is In covered how each of the professional sports leagues manipulates games to increase television ratings, and in turn, their popularity and revenues. Since then, Tuohy has kept a blog of the same name, chronicling the many ways in which the NFL has controlled the outcomes of games and deceived its fans into thinking they were watching вЂњpureвЂќ competition.
One piece of his evidence: The Green Bay Packers went 15вЂ“1 in the 2011 regular season, one win shy of a вЂњperfectвЂќ record. But Tuohy points out the Packers didnвЂ™t have a single offensive holding call made against them in 11 straight games that season. Holding can be called on just about every play in an NFL game, so for it not to be called against one team for that many games is more than mere coincidence, argues Tuohy. It was, in his estimation, part of a coordinated effort to vault young Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers to superstardom.
вЂњThe NFL sees certain storylines start to develop, and then says, вЂThis guy is national news. What if we give him a little help here and there and extend this storyline longer than it should naturally go?вЂ™вЂќ Tuohy posits. вЂњSuddenly a team that was supposed to be 8вЂ“8 is 10вЂ“6 and in the playoffs вЂ” and isnвЂ™t that good for everyone?вЂќ
The NFL concocted a similar plot last year, he says, with the Dallas Cowboys and their rookie quarterback Dak Prescott, who more or less ended Tony RomoвЂ™s career with his stellar play, and with Tim Tebow when he made an improbable postseason run with the Denver Broncos in 2011. Sometimes the league interferes with individual calls, Tuohy says, such as Calvin JohnsonвЂ™s infamous non-catch against the Chicago Bears in 2010. (The Bears would go on to win the division. Hmm .) Or when Dez Bryant suffered from a similar call in the 2014 playoffs. (Against the beloved Packers, no less. Interesting. )
вЂњ[The definition of a catch] is one of the gray areas the NFL can exist in,вЂќ Tuohy says. вЂњThe official could have come back on the field and said it was a catch because of A, B or C in the rulebook. Instead, he came back on the field and said it wasnвЂ™t a catch because of X, Y and Z. The rules are so gray in this area that it lets the league manipulate the game right in front of its fans. I donвЂ™t think itвЂ™s bad officiating. ItвЂ™s intentional.вЂќ
Similarly, he believes this past Super Bowl, which is widely considered to be the greatest comeback in the history of the NFL, if not all of televised sport, was also rigged. вЂњTo me, that was a script taken directly from professional wrestling, right down to Roger Goodell handing the trophy over and getting booed off the field,вЂќ Tuohy says. (In wrestling parlance, Goodell was a major heel vis-ГЎ-vis the Patriots for suspending quarterback Tom Brady for the first four games of the season вЂ” and for a crime many believe he didnвЂ™t commit or that Goodell couldnвЂ™t prove.)
Tuohy points out that the NFL is under no legal obligation to ensure a fair game. The games the league provides are entertainment, and it can produce that entertainment anyway it pleases.
As proof, Tuohy cites more than 400 FBI files he secured under a Freedom of Information Act request for his second book Larceny Games . The files show the Bureau was investigating rampant gambling corruption in the league in the late-1960s and 1970s. That said, the Bureau was never able to bring criminal charges.
вЂњOh, God yes, it [still] happens,вЂќ San DiegoвЂ“based journalist Don Bauder, a fellow NFL truther, says of Sunday point-shaving. Bauder first started covering the NFL in 1964 as a reporter at Businessweek . He left the job for the San Diego Union-Tribune , where he served for years as the paperвЂ™s finance editor and finance columnist. He retired in 2003, and now keeps a blog hosted by the San Diego Reader alt-weekly.
At its founding, the NFL was financed by mobsters who had an interest in making sure games went a certain way, Bauder says. The gambling persisted, he alleges, until the 1980s, only subsiding once player salaries started to skyrocket and throwing games was no longer worth the risk for them.
Still: вЂњI donвЂ™t think it goes on as much as it did in the past, but IвЂ™m sure it does happen,вЂќ he argues.
As proof of their beliefs, both Bauder and Tuohy could only speculate on possible scenarios and offer circumstantial evidence. They remain undeterred nonetheless. вЂњPeople say, вЂProve it.вЂ™ IвЂ™m sorry, I canвЂ™t prove it,вЂќ Tuohy says. вЂњBut if [game fixing] has happened once in the past five years or 10 years, because the league wants to further a certain story line, then the league has no integrity.
вЂњAll I have to do is be right once, and then IвЂ™m right across the board.вЂќ
