    Sports Fans, you are being fooled

    With the new (ish) revelations about match fixing in Football, how can any fan be sure the games they pay to watch are not corrupted?

    That poor ref decision, was it just bad eyesight or was it a deliberate attempt to influence the game?

    It is happening in other sports too - never mind doping, fixing is far more serious
    I have reported your post

    When billions of gambling dollars are involved as they are, we can be sure game fixing will follow. Professional sports coupled with gambling ensures all games could well have some level of fixing.

    It's all become nothing but big big corporate business....where huge profits are made in every which direction. Amateur circles, as well.

    Criminal behaviour and corruption can't be far behind.

    When you get to the top levels, it becomes very difficult, particularly in soccer.
    Lower leagues are bent as fuck, particularly in Europe.
    Tennis and golf, bent.

    I believe that team sporting competion would be more likely to succumb than would individual athletic activity - just by the nature of it all.

    The slight exceptions to these contradictions might be car racing, bicycling, etc.

    In the long of it, all contemporary sporting competioning will be subject to corrupt interference in one form or another.
