Aints win the SuperB owl because Katrina
that it's all rigged by jewey satanic illuminati elites with gematria involved
Mj "retired" to pay his debnts
US was purposely cheated out of the WC
FIFA awarded the 1990 WC to Germany because of the Berlin wall fall, to generate union between the German people
If you rewatch the final you'll see we got blatantly refballed
Michael Jordan's father was killed because Jordan didn't pay off his gambling debts
Captcha: Subway comercial
MJ’s dad was killed by Charles Barkley because Jordan had just beaten him in the finals and completed the first 3-peat
You didn't got a single shot on Goal that final
Peru will win 2018 WC to jump start white nationalist movement in the country and eventually sweep through South America
fifa allowed the Panama goal to punish the US for probing their corrupt organization
the ref declared all the argentine shots null
he refballed them all
0-0 and winning on penalties is the thinking man's result
Brazil threw the World Cup final in 1998 on the promise that they'd win it in 2002.
Also South Korea were handed a semifinal place in 2002. But that's very well known.
I remember a pasta some dudes started in Brazil that said we sold the 1998 WC to France in exchange for every player getting money from Nike, but Ronaldo didn't want to play so Edmundo started
Now every world cup there's a new version, in 2014 it was David Luiz who refused to throw the match
That Argentina is white
USA deliberately missed the World Cup in Russia because there's a major happening programmed (nukes)
Sonny Liston threw his fight against Ali. This one's probably true tbqh.
That blackout during that one Super Bowl was deliberate.
Bobby Riggs deliberately lost the "Battles of the Sexes" match against Billy Jean King because he had money on her to win.
Nobody debates this
I don't know why this isn't talked about more
I really, really like this one
Pick exactly one
I remember that. What was the theory behind it being deliberate? That the other team would get the chance to regain their composure?
in 2014 it was David Luiz who refused to throw the match
If you are talking about the 7-1 watch the goals again and try to spot David Luiz in every single one. Hint: He is not where he was supposed to be.
In 2006 an Arsenal supporting chef served up poisoned lasagna to Tottenham players on the eve of the crucial last day of the season. More than half of the first team were ill and unable to play the game against West Ham, which they lost 2-1. Arse got a champions league place as a result.
Russia will win the 2018 World Cup.
Messi was "created" by Barca using HGH injections and endless, forced practice as a child
y do u have 3 homosexual flags next to your icon?
Those aren't though.
OJ Simpson was acquitted because the US government didn't want a repeat of the LA riots.
Cuzco's flag looks better
carry on Peru.
Americans look so dumb when trying to talk about football
Watch videos of Messi playing before the treatment, he was really skilled. Football isn't like American sports where you need to be a big black guy, most of the GOATs are short and even skinny, you need techinique and IQ over athleticism and speed
It's a copypasta my man
here's the 1998 version
this is the 2014 one
It is widely believed in Argentina and much of south america that the game in 1966 between England and Argentina was fixed. Argentina had a very good team that year and the game was very difficult for England until Argentina's best player Rattin was given a Red card for no apparent reason. This was the last W.Cup that was not televised to the world and some people think that this had something to do with the outcome of that game.
The quarter-finals cross refereeing (an English ref robbing Uruguay against W.Germany and a German ref favoring England against Argentina) was indeed very much commentated also in Uruguay.
I don't like the word conspiracy, but when you have a quarter-final Argentina - England and Uruguay - W.Germany, and you put a German ref in the former and an English ref in the latter, and both South American sides happen to be robbed... well, I wouldn't say that FIFA made all it could to appear clean... I still remember that photo taken from a German newspaper with Schnellinger taking the ball from the goal-line as a goal-keeper after Rocha's header, with the game 0-0 and the Germans playing incredibly violent, and later the ref sending off two Uruguayans (the first one for protests, the second one rightly sent-off for violent play).
That wasn't really a conspiracy, it was just Germans cheating like they've done before.
In '74 they beat a Polish team in the semis that was the best team at the tournament. A Polish team that beat Italy, Argentina and Brazil at that tournament and beat England to qualify for the WC. A team that had the tournaments top scorer with 7 goals and another player who had 5.
Then they had to play in these conditions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jyuw4h-zLZc
There was a lot of rain in the days leading up and apparently the stadium crew were told not to do anything about it until the day of the match when cameras were on. The Germans knew the only way they could stop the Polish team was by not letting them play a quick free flowing game. They got lucky with the rain but they didn't do anything to clear it until it was too late.
Why would they favor South Korea?. Its not like they're rich or anything unlike Qatar.
England rigged that entire tournament.
if everybody knew what happened, they would be sickened
NHL rigged the Crosby lottery so Bettman didnt have to move a former Stanley Cup winning team
FIFA cheated the US out of the World Cup, but the US would have beaten Mexico if they hadn't had to play in the middle of Trump Country right after the election
I believe it was a FIFA decision to spread footy in Asia. It would have looked really bad if once again only European or South American teams got far, especially in a tournament held in Asia.
South Korea were the hosts. Feel free to look up the highlights of their game against Italy. They had definitely rigged it.
1986 was gifted to Argies to compensate the Falklands
1990 was gifted to Germany to create a unified nation
1994 was gifted to Brasil to compenste for Senna's death
1998 was gifted to France as host country, Brasil throw the match
2002 Korea were gifted a semifinal appearance as host, refballing Spain and Italy out, Brazil beat Germany as compenstion for 1998, Khan made that howler on purpose
2006 was gifted to Italy as compensation for 2002
2010 to Spain for the same reason
2014 to Germany still fo 2002
the gays get gayer
On the surface, it would seem that no number of bad refereeing calls could give Uruguay reason to complain about this World Cup quarter final from 1966.
The South Americans were thumped 4-0 by the eventual finalists, with the goals scored by Helmut Haller (2), Franz Beckenbauer and Uwe Seeler. But study this game a little closer and you will see a match filled with huge controversy.
Uruguay had dominated the early part of the game and would have taken the lead but for a flying save from Germany defender Karl Heinz Schnellinger, who literally clawed the ball out of the top corner with his hands. Incredibly, English referee Jim Finney waved play on.
The Germans took the lead through Haller and the game was delicately poised before Finney controversially sent off two Uruguayans in the second half. West Germany scored three times late on for a flattering scoreline.
Under that logic who is getting 2018?
Dr Fuentes used blood doping to aid Spain's top teams, as well as Rafa Nadal.
Argentina, to cement Messi as the GOAT
No fucking way I got banned for that
Back in Argentina, it was pointed out that the referee in the England game was German, while the official in Germany’s equally controversial quarter final was English. The events surrounding the refereeing draw for these two games added further suspicions.
The representatives of Argentina, Uruguay, Spain and the Soviet Union were invited to a London hotel for the draw. They arrived on time, but found out that the draw had already been made without them, with the only witnesses being FIFA's English president Stanley Rous, a German representative, and a couple of Africans. This dubious situation strengthened conspiracy talk, and led to Dutch referee infamously declaring that "FIFA is controlled by three people - Sir, Stanley, Rous."
Argentina for the glory!
bet to Brasil
i say England
after Brexit they really could use some nationalistic fervor to compensate the doubts and fears that come in this time of uncertainty and bargaining
The 1958 World Cup didn't exist; it was all fake
Mexico. NO ERA.
Nobody cares about some cucks that share an island.
This is the correct answer
Belicheat baited Denver into getting McDanials because they knew shanahan was on his way out. Then when it worked they sabotaged Denver because they knew the team had an insane amount of talent.
Would English refs have really favoured Germany over Uruguay?
I think you took his post a bit too seriously lad
I can't believe they shut down Zachary K Hubbard just like that mahnnn
The Dodgers lose in the playoffs evry year due to umpball.
Nearly every sport on the professional level is fixed in some way or another. The soul of any game is entirely dead, but we keep watching because FIFA and NFL are the modern day gladiator arenas.
Black NFL offensive line players from the Oakland Raiders basically let their white quarterback get smeared because he wouldn't kneel with them
France for compensating the compensation of Italy 2006
thats because he is david luiz though.
you dont need a genius IQ to play football well. David Beckham proves this.
not that user, but that reason you said is one; another is a certain government organization ordered a hit on someone attending the game. The blackout was more than enough time to execute the capture and extract the target to a location to extract information before killing the person
inb4 I get v&
Wow stay safe user.
I think Kings vs Lakers being rigged is probably the most obvious sports conspiracy
exactly. foreigners would not understand, that favouring the hun, would be unthinkable.
Another one with MJ that's funny to me is that he wasn't really sick during the Flu Game.
Boston was gifted the World Series because of the Boston Marathon bombing
Iran to show that the 2022 World Cup belongs in the Middle East
1978 WC was bought by the Junta Militar of Argentina.
This one isn't even a conspiracy, it was clear as the day
Brazil again to prove the compensation memes wrong.
it's not a secret that he was actually hungover
I refuse to believe football games can be rigged.
Maybe it can be in single player sports but you have to get all those players to agree and hope no one spills the beans.
Wasn't there a soccer game between two teams and a game that had an impact on the qualifying of the teams ended at halftime and then the teams kinda lazily played to keep a draw so they'd both move on? And that led to all matches for that competition having to start at the same time? Maybe that wasn't a conspiracy theory since it's obvious
Pele was there. Are you calling Pele a liar?
argentina should have used the same water bottles they used against brazil during the final. the lucky bottles if you know what I mean
There was a fantastic copypasta during the early days of Sup Forums about LeBron James being a lab grown prototype for super soldiers created by the U.S. government. The full pasta filled up like 3 or 4 full posts worth of text. I haven't seen it in years though.
Austria vs Germany in the 1982 WC. Algeria had already played, so the last game in their group was the aforementioned. Iirc Germany scored early on and this put Algeria in 3rd with Austria and Germany in 1st and 2nd... so they just passed the ball around until FT. Algerians were upset about it understandably. Now all final group fixtures are played simultaneously, also a win is 3 points instead of 2.
New England PATRIOTS win their first Super Bowl the same year as 9/11

It would actually be a compensation for

Almost all relevant NBA games are rigged because money.
As told by that coked up ref that was expelled for betting in his own matches.
I'm kinda want to believe in because some fouls given in the playoffs are really shady.

This seems the most obvious one
I say this as a giants fan that entire series with detroit just seemed so sketchy especially the slam given up
Edmonton Oilers rigging the NHL draft lottery to make up for losing Crosby
no matches found

I thought for sure that would be brought up
Len Bias was murdering for being too good
Rocky Marciano fought his brother in sanctioned bouts more than once
But he still beat joe louis
because he shit tho
I remember staying up and watching that. It prominently featured a certain German car manufactured as sponsor, think the whole arena was named after them, but certainly the logo was everywhere. During the blackout, cameras were rolling just fine and constantly picked up the sponsor logo.
I assumed it was a corporate hit, subliminally associating the rival corporation with failure.
David Stern made Jordan retire those 2 years because of his heavy gambling addiction which got his father killed. That's also why his father got killed because Jordan owed money to powerful people.
Koji was literal ace tho, Stay butthurt.
These I believe.
Argentina against the b team of the b team in Ecuador: the first goal was for them for the "fair play", later Messi scores 3 goals, like the savior of his team.
Someone was pretty fucked up if Argentina didn't qualify: Macri, Putin, or Fifa.
Either way he was fucked up. The point is that people say he wasn't sick at all, as if his performance wasn't GOAT, sick or not.
IQ? Miralo a calito teve...
yfw you realize skeletons play sports (wearing human skin)
Cowboys and Yankees were deep state organizations to stoke nationalism
How could that even be fucking possible. You don't become a billionaire overnight.

there was a tumor that a lot of big wig politiians were tied with sandusky in the penn state scandal.
m8 his jordan brand alone is 90% of his fortune. You think he earned a lot by being a basketball player? that was like 5 million tops in the 90s
1985 draft lottery was fixed to help the knicks get patrick ewing
Qatar for compensating humanitarian aid to European football clubs
Supposedly the NBA and Stern rigged the 1985 draft lottery to make sure the Knicks got the #1 pick so they could get Patrick Ewing. They did this putting the envelope for the Knicks in the freezer so Stern could feel for the cold envelope when he reached in to the make the first pick of the lotter.
bull fucking shit
High Tech US Government Prototype
not even better than Jordan
not mention of Tim Donaghy
I guess its not really a theory if its real is it?
For decades of destroying Yugoslavia and killing probably best European country ever existed.
On this day we would dominate every sport on this planet, even fucking cricket, just for fun.
Uruguay, to compensate banning ratking for 1 year and s half from the NT.
There's never been a world cup that wasn't fixed
Look up raj perumal and the other hundreds of books on the subject
the majority of his fortune is tied to the ownership of the hornets
Every olympics and world cup has been a rigged extension of geopolitics and has been complimented by state sponsored doping/steroid/cheating programs.
oh wait thats just a fact.
Favre gave up the sack to Strahan that gave Strahan the record
The Panthers paid the refs last night but still lost
Arselel being good
Every world cup is rigged
Every olympics is rigged
NHL rigged the draft so Oilers could get McDavid
NHL rigged the draft so Pittsburgh got Malkin and Crosby to avoid relocation
Oscar De La Hoya attempts to rig every boxing match Golden Boy promotions is involved in
England won the 66 world cup because fifa fucked over portugal by moving the semifinal game a train ride away from the original destination to where the English nt were stationed. Eusebio was too tired and portugal lost.
There was much much more dirty stuff happening.
But that was normal back then.
Psycholigical pressures on the team. Making up possible disadvantages. Tranquilizer in food.
I want to ad that this borderline stuff is also how Argentina git its home WC.
Modern WCs have way more Media around them that it's hard too hide such stuff,
tranquilizer in food
I doubt foreign players would stoop that low to eat english food. They’d resort to rats beforehand.
Had Milosevic not gone full sperg mode, the other Jugo countries wouldn't have gotten the fuck out of dodge.
The ONLY country to blame for the break up of Jugoslavija is Serbia.
You become a billionaire by not paying you debts.
Ok, nuking Russia
I agree with technique, athleticism and speed. IQ not so much.
Oilers were rigged 4 #1 draft picks in like 5 years
If Gerrard wasn't threatened by the Scouse mafia the following would have happened
he would have joined Chelsea
Gerrard and Lampard would have learnt how to play well together, for club and country
England would have been far more succesful
Gerrard would have a Premier League medal
Liverpool would have collapsed earlier, players such as Suarez would not have joined
le beautiful game
Argentina poisoning a Brazilian player in 1990, Argies truly are scum
a Brazilian player
It was the whole squad
This, it's an open secret in the North West. If Stevie G had moved to Chelsea, a bunch of scouse gangsters were going to release pics they had of Gerrard's wife gobbling their cocks. And also probably put the hurt on Gerrard's extensive and fairly shady exended family in the area
certain epl players who are often injured fake their injuries so they don't have to take drug tests before the games (injured players can't play so they are not tested)
it sure is exhausting riding on this train I’ll probably forget how to run tomorrow
Wladimir Klitschko was poisoned during his bouts against Lamon Brewster.
Probably on the order of Don King.
Is his wife an ex-escort or just a slag?
Maybe I'm wrong but the wins being 3 points instead of 2 is to force the teams to play more offensive football because now a tie isn't that good.
After Italy 1990, which was the World Cup with less goals per match, FIFA implemented the change globally
It's a thread about conspiracy theories, not facts.
Yeah that's correct, I didn't mean to imply that it was brought in due to the mishap suffered by Algeria in 82 but more that wins are much more valuable now compared to back then.
Super Bowl 51 was rigged
...or a victim of gangsters?
1966 was a complete fix from start to finish
It is widely believed in Argentina that the game in 1966 between England and Argentina was fixed
I've literally never heard one person talking about it lol
pretty upsetting to see Ireland's most successful manager being abused online this way.
wouldnt it make more sense if a ny team won?
mfw they literally moved games cross country to tire the opposition
we we're going to play them in goodison park but a few ours earlier they changed the venue to wembley
they did this to brazil also
Any world cup before 1950
Yes. That guy is retarded.

My coworker hates the NT because he thinks 7x1 was a plot to damage then president Dilma Roussef's reelection
He made that money from selling overpriced Jordans.

You literally can see Stern knock the envelope on the side of the bin to give it a crease then Stern digs for like 14 minutes in the bin, it's also why the Knicks haven't gotten a top pick since, because they blew their chance to become a monetary powerhouse dynasty for the league.
the new york knicks aren't a monetary powerhouse, but the filthadelphia seventy sixers are?
It's a spite thing, you can't gag a rigging. Look at what happened to the Knicks, they're a fucking disgrace to the league. The 70shitters could at least get some meme wins and restore some parity to the East at some point.
