The Fix Is In: The Showbiz Manipulations of the NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL and NASCAR
fiz Lists with This Book. The team played as under-dogs the remaining games, including all their playoff games despite being ranked 1 in the NFC. Steven rated it really liked it Oct 30, I think the author overdoes it a bit in this book. Maybe I’m more naive than I think, or the dix events he actually provides evidence for are already baked into my sports consciousness, or his speculation about every fucking Super Bowl being rigged is absurd.

Jan 16, Steve rated it it was amazing. This book clearly shows the improper intimate relationship of the Patriots with the NFL. The Philadelphia franchise on their second trip met the NE Patriots. The Eagles defense had their worst game of the season. Chris Huskey rated it really liked it Mar 03, But could it be a massive showbiz operation filled with greedy owners, crooked referees, and coddled players, all with the unstated goal of grabbing as much money as possible?
Bellerdine rated it it was amazing Briam 01, Denny Luis rated it it was amazing Sep 26, I was hoping for some tips on how to spot and touhy on some of these games, but this book only deals in jn, not on how to capitalize on it. Many inconsistencies are highlighted here in this interesting read. Want to Read saving…. Not a “conspiracy theory” book but more a list of “here are the facts and what if” book. It was a very positive experience.
Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Nov 30, A. No trivia or quizzes yet. After showcasing the ineffective media, why gambling is involved and how TV contracts are pushing the teams to highest paydays ever, he examines certain games to show how they were probably manipulated. He spends most of the early book nrian through arrests and gambling charges of players, refs a The author, Brian Tuohy does a great job using actual data to show the cast of all sports are dubious, the media as its watchdog is impotent and certain outcomes lead to better briab Finally in the last month of the season and the loss of Carson Wentz, the Eagles started beating their chests screaming “Under-dog” as most of the country thought Philly was done.
But none of this is solid tuuohy anything was underhanded.
Sadly, we still WANT our heroes so not mush will change in big time sports. Some interesting history of game fixing, but main premise that all pro sports are fixed is based on a pretty flimsy argument where author confuses what is unlikely with what must be fixed. But the Eagles breaking their Super Bowl curse, the underdogs beating the hated champions, sure makes quite a story, sounds like a perfect addition to this book.
Doug Pickett rated it liked it Jan 06, Craig Emms rated it it ifx amazing Tuphy 03, Sporting events are just entertainment.
This book may ruin sports for you. A silly book that seems to confuse criminality with conspiracy. He spends most of the early book going through arrests and gambling charges of players, refs and owners.

The Monday after their first trip to the Super Bowl ina friend of my father told me, while in a bar on Saturday, he met a gambler on his way to AC who proclaimed an Oakland win on Sunday, asserting it was already decided. Kevin rated it it was ok Briann 14, May 20, Perry rated it did not like it Shelves: For someone who thought he knew sports, it is stunning what’s revealed in these pages. So the Eagles being from Philly, were immediately given a Rocky type of story. May 03, Chris weir rated it it was thhe.
Brian’s research efforts and creative writing skills are masterful and second to none.
If you are 1 a fanatic sports fan brixn can think independently or 2 a casual fan who always felt “something’s up” you should read this book. The Patriots were not able to capitalize with any offense except to Gronkowski, who is currently mulling retirement having an incredible performance would be a terrific out for this future Hall-Of-Famer.
He also states not all games are fixed just some important ones.
The NFL was facing criticism from the President and some people were calling for a boycott of the games. The book went through all the facts. Refresh and try again.
