Why didn't you just add this comment into the same thread where the subject is being discussed. Are you that much of an attention-starved diva?

And, to be precise, games are being 'influenced', not 'fixed'. The team the refs are against can still win if they can overcome the biased calls.

*couldn't. he couldn't care less. as in he literally could not care any less.

Do you real think Devin Stern fixes games just because he feels like it? There are very powerful interests behind the scenes, and your simple mind thinks Devin Stern fixes games just because he feels like it.. what a simpleton you are.

When people say "stern" they mean the nba head offices.

I don't get why ppl have such a hard time grasping this concept: the NBA is a business first and foremost and sport second. ALL businesses aim to make money. Hundreds of millions of dollars are at stake every single game. Do you really think Stern, the owners, and whoever else does not care about those hundreds of millions of dollars every night? Just think how much money the ECF is bringing to the owners, TV advertisers, etc.

You're on the internet. The internet is filled with impressionable young people and idiots who live in fantasy land and are quick think everything is a conspiracy.

Just as an example... there was a thread a couple weeks back where the OP was saying Jeff Van Gundy isn't calling the game with Mike Breen... Hubie Brown was there instead.

Everybody in the thread was speculating that they fired Van Gundy and replaced him with Hubie. They were coming up with all these idiotic ideas about why he was "fired".

It wasn't until about page 3 when a guy finally chimed in and said "couldn't he just be missing one game for personal reasons like he's sick or something"?

It amazed me that not a single person's first thought was something simple like "maybe he's sick." Everybody automatically jumped to wild conclusions.

That thread is the internet in a nutshell.

Theres fixing in every sport, it just how it is, I wouldn't be surprised if it was going on in the NBA it just a part of life in the world atm. It always has been and it always will be.

No, my argument is that people on the internet are quick to call many things a conspiracy with no real information of it being so.

They gloss over simple explanations and jump straight for the crazy ones.

It happens all the time.

P.S... **** you. You are that idiot making jokes in the thread about the tornado in Oklahoma. You are one of the idiots I was talking about.

And you must be aware you are an idiot because it explains why you got so defense about my post.

There are lots of conspiracy theorists on the interwebz. LOL. They'll believe that 9/11 was a government inside job and that JFK was murdered by the CIA.
