    Anyone Ever Known A Fix?

    Has anyone here known a fix and made money off of it? Or perhaps, participated ?

    I asked a MMA fighter to throw a fight one time. He just laughed at me.

    most fixes happen in mma, boxing, horses and soccer..most other sports are clean and the ones I mentioned of course not all the time, watch odds movemenet especially in soccer.

    The better question is has a sporting event ever NOT been fixed? Too much money changes hands for the powers that be (controlling elite) to ever leave ANYTHING to chance. Nothing in this life happens by accident.

    I got wind of the ASU point shaving situation pretty early in the process. However I wasn't hooked in. Made 2 plays based on "a little bird", both cashed.

    Problem was, I didn't pound it - because I didn't believe it. I was also in my teens, not much I could have done.

    There are a few instances where I knew the players had partied way too fukkin hard the night before, and most likely still blitzed when taking the court, but that isn't fixing.

    I once witnessed a basketball player at the free throw line winking at the ref handing him the ball and the ref winking back. I don't know if that counts, because it was Jason Collins shooting.

    it has only happend to me once.

    SHRINK gave me a horse at Calder wanted me also to wager for him up to 5k, as he knew I had many outs...later in the morning he said he did not need my outs but that since he alerted me and I was willing he would give me the horse at the last minute (after he got the info) if I promissed not to share or bet parimutual on it...


    It was amazing I got the horse just 2 min before post. then by the time I got to may major accounts like bookmaker that have high horse limits Bookmaker had that race off the board, they stopped taking action on it! they must have been hit by some accounts or too much and they just took it off. (in the 6 years since that day bookmaker has never that I have seen taken a specific reace off the board like that!!!.....crap that was a large limit wager I could not get in, same with BETDSI who uses same software....now I really had to scramble...

    I went as fast as I could to many other accounts
    (I had them all up and logged in so that was smart) and smashed this horse at their lower limits at a bunch of my outs.

    this horse somehow managed to stay 4-1 on track as I recall on track and won by 6 lengths....

    It was not a gamble in my mind it was predetermined this horse would win..It was pretty cool to be in the know on something. I never asked or found out the STORY behind it, I followed that stable and their horses for 12 months never seeing anything too crazy Im really not sure on that race what the story was..

    Too many people making big money to have a scandal

    Ref scandal was just with one compulsive gambler even though it was huge.

    The bigger the trick and the older the trick, the easier it is to pull, because --
    1. They think it can't be that old,
    2. They think it can't be that big,
    ... for so many people to have fallen for it.

    I don't know if this is the same thing or not, but March 2th, 2011 when Brandon Davies got suspended from BYU for Fcuking a white girl. #9 BYU threw their next game at home in Provo to protest the actions by the school. I have a couple of friends in SLC who got wind of what was going on. I took a chance and put all I had in my account on New Mexico on the road. They were something like +950 or maybe it was +1250 but I cleaned up puting about a dime on them. If you watched the game it was so obvious what was going on. Jimmer Fredette actually shot an airball free throw, and on a layup the ball went over the backboard. There was no defence and so many unforced turnovers and blatanly missed open shots, and it wasn't as close as the final 62-84.

    Did they really throw the game? I dont know for certain, but I took a shot with the info that I had and it paid off big time!

    Not ahead of time, but plenty of experts here can determine if a game is fixed or not after the conclusion of a game/fight.

    Do you recall what the horses ML was? Nice story, which I believe. Doesn't mean the race was fixed. You've been around awhile. Remember that classic old school racing thread at the rx? The race at Finger Lakes. It is in the classic section there.

    You are a funny lil guy. They "protested" with a "fix". Where do you people come from?

    I use to get horses at the Meadowlands. One race, one driver blocked out the field so our horse could win. He went back and forth while our shit horse held on.

    +1

    Trotters are REALLY shaky.

    I saw a guy pull up on the ropes big time about 50m before the finish, and then didn't even show.
