Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, & Beertalk

The money is way too small for major games, but everyone knows China and some other smaller leagues/markets have been prone to fixing forever.

There was a huge case in Canada like a few months ago were people were betting like 6 figures on some NASL or something games in Canada. No **** it's rigged if people are betting 6 figures on games that have under 1,000 people in the stands.

Funny when the lolnfl people were arguing last week with me when I said steroids were a minor issue at best in world soccer but match fixing was a big concern....

yeah, because the usual viewers of the Super Bowl want to hear 'if you like it then you should've put a ring on it' over and over and over.

No doubt soccer league officials noticed something was fishy when one team was actually beating others instead of the majority of games being 0-0 draws.

if they don't they got to watch a super sexy woman wearing not very much clothing dance around and put on a show. if you're not into taylor swift there's not much she's offering performance-wise except for a cute face.

Sounds like you don't have what it takes to be a SE poster.
