There's no proof that he ever has and there's no way to find out if he will tonight...so what's the point?

Even if he did occasionally rig drafts, he wouldn't this year. NY and Boston are two of the more poorly run teams currently.

Pretty much.

And he rigged it so Seattle wouldn't leave town. It would have been too obvious to give them the 1 pick so he gave them the 2.

Doesn't he WANT Seattle to leave town and go to Vegas?

It's pretty much a consensus he rigged it to punish questionable tanking teams.
