Following the San Francisco 49ers’ heartbreaking defeat in overtime, a former NFL player took to social media to voice his thoughts about the league.
For NFL conspiracy theorists, there’s always something to scrutinize, especially with the presence of Taylor Swift and her connection to Travis Kelce throughout the season.
As the excitement of Super Bowl LVIII settles, with the Kansas City Chiefs emerging victorious, former Raiders player Will Compton didn’t hold back in calling out the NFL, often regarded as the most influential professional sports league globally.
Compton boldly asserted that the NFL has essentially transformed into the WWE, suggesting that outcomes are scripted and predetermined. He expressed skepticism, stating, “All scripted. Fixed. They pick who they want to win. It’s all for entertainment & honestly I don’t even know why I watch & care so much. It’s all fake.”
While Compton didn’t delve into specifics about what he believed was fabricated, his sentiment seemingly encompassed all aspects of the sport, including its results.
There’s a sentiment among some that the NFL may have favored the Kansas City Chiefs to win the Super Bowl, particularly due to the newfound attention and revenue brought in by Taylor Swift’s involvement.
The Super Bowl marked the first game to implement the NFL’s altered overtime rules, allowing both teams to possess the ball at least once—an adjustment made following the Chiefs’ electrifying divisional-round matchup against the Bills in January 2021.
Despite the skepticism and conspiracy theories, fans often find themselves unable to resist the allure of the sport, ultimately continuing to engage with it in the long run.
