Hollywood’s awards season came to an end on Sunday night Everything everywhere at once They’ve won almost every main category Oscar and given us one Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade reunion We never knew we needed it. That means many of Tinseltown’s best screenwriters can now shift their work to the upcoming NFL season. That’s right, the solution for your favorite team is already here and there’s nothing to convince you that America’s favorite sport doesn’t have predetermined outcomes.

Regarding a survey operated by NJ.Bet, an online betting guide for the state of New Jersey, more than one in six NFL fans believe the league is rigged. That’s between 17 and 19 percent of football fans, or the number of NFL fans, who dropped out the cowboys Zug after realizing their success in the 1990s is not replicated. Yeah, I saw too many people in college wearing Yankees snapbacks, cowboys Jerseys and Lakers jacket on. You’re just missing out on the Mountain Time Zone! Go Avalanche, who were also a great team around the turn of the century.

What do a third of NFL fans think?

The five teams with the most fans who believe the NFL is rigged won a combined playoff game last season. The only one of the top quintets to make the postseason, the jaguars, tied for third place, with 36 percent of fans polled believing the league arrives behind the scenes the same way WWE arrives at its results. High on the list of conspiracy theorists hawks fans (42 percent), followed by the masochist nozzles fanbase (40 percent), the robber And jaguars (36 percent and one of three cardinals fans the suspicion that the NFL is being manipulated in position No. 5. I’m surprised the patriots are not on this list as their two decades of dominance with Tom Brady and Bill Belichick led them to believe the Lombardi Trophy was their birthright.

And who is responsible for ensuring that the predetermined results are played out in front of the whole world like Roger Goodell and football? Illuminati do you want? Officials! More than half (52 percent) of the 1,006 fans surveyed, with at least one fan from each franchise, believe Official Favorites are playing. The surveyed collective believes the five teams When in doubt, the zebras benefit more than anyone else chiefs, patriots, cowboys, packerAnd privateer. NO Eagle? NO bills or Bengal? Usually, getting calls coming your way is closely related to winning.

Respondents to the survey ranged in age from 18 to 85, with an average age of 41, and 36 percent of them said they had never seen their favorite team win a Super Bowl in their lives. I was born exactly four months after the then Redskins won Super Bowl XXVI. The now-commanders haven’t survived the NFC Divisional Round since. But it’s not my fault. The best (and I guess worst) part of being a Washington fan is not expecting anything from your team. We’re going to go 9-8 next year and either get thrashed in the wild card round or just miss the postseason, so I’m not among the 48 percent of respondents who felt their team had their heart broken last season, or who 68 percent who have experienced this believe their favorite team will make the playoffs in 2023. I’m among the 72 percent who believe their team won’t win the Super Bowl this season. 28 percent did not know of NFL fans love Kansas City, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Cincinnati or Buffalo.

Oddly enough, all five teams I’ve mentioned are in the top 6 of “teams thirstiest to win a Super Bowl” with realistic paths to the next NFL champion, and Dallas joins them. The madness of Cowboys fans will never surprise me. The survey’s nearly 1,000-person pool consisted of 50 percent males, 49 percent females, and 1 percent who identified as non-binary. Somehow, this season’s closest team voted to breaking the hearts of their fans, the Cardinals, which doesn’t make sense when a third of them believe the NFL is being rigged. The Holy, Texans, Colts and Lions make up the rest of the top five. The Chiefs’ fans are the runaway favorites with the least chance of breaking their fans’ hearts. The Eagles, Seahawks, Patriots and Cowboys round out the top 5 in this category. Dallas is the fifth-biggest thirst to win the Super Bowl, but also the fifth-lowest to have their hearts broken? Make it meaningful.

We are committed to reporting news about the Cowboys as well as the NFL as a whole. For more information on Dallas and others, see our Cowboys team page.
