HOME – The Fix Is In
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. Laid them out well and showed why manipulations occur. If you are ffix a fanatic sports fan who can think independently or 2 a casual fan who always felt “something’s up” you should read this book.
Shane rated it fxi was ok May 27, Paperbackpages. The author not only tears apart the leagues by exposing the lies they’ve told to their fans, but he makes a convincing case that the games have been fixed by the big businesses that are pro sports and television. Maybe I’m more naive than I think, or the scandalous 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.
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. I think the author overdoes it a bit in this book. The Eagles defense had their worst game of the season.
Katie rated it it was ok Aug 02, Many inconsistencies are highlighted here in this interesting read. Matt Jones rated it liked it Jul 02, Lists with This Book. While most may see this book as nothing but a “conspiracy theory,” in truth the author uses facts and quotes taken from reliable sources to prove his case. Personally, I will believe it was plucky courage that our troops rallied to defeat the greater foe and that is what keeps my heart bumping Kelly green blood.
He also states not all games are fixed just some important ones.
Chris Huskey rated it really liked it Mar 03, With reality obscured by a complacent and often complicit sports media, The Fix Is In shines a light on a hidden history of clandestine arrangements between television networks and sports leagues, all against a background of drinking, drugging, and crime. Feb 16, Daddy Rich rated it it utohy amazing.
bria A silly book that seems to confuse criminality with conspiracy. What started as a good, well written book ended with something that really sounded like the paranoid ramblings of someone who is quite convinced that the whole sports world is nothing but a sham. Aug 04, CORoger rated it really liked it.
I know I will never watch a game the same way again. Refresh and try again. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. So I wanted to know how the Patriots were going to cheat this time. Doug Pickett rated it liked it Jan 06, May 03, Chris weir rated it it was amazing. Want to Read saving…. Finally in the last month of the season and js loss of Carson Wentz, the Eagles started beating their chests screaming “Under-dog” as most of the country thought Philly was done.
Books by Brian Tuohy. Steve Casner rated it really liked it Nov 13, As we all know, “it’s about the money” and “follow the money” are the only truisms in life.
Robert Plowman rated it it was amazing Jan 17, May 20, Perry rated it did not like it Shelves: The Fix Is In: Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Thanks for telling us about the problem. So the Eagles being from Philly, were immediately given a Rocky type of story.
He spends most of the early book going through arrests and gambling charges of fkx, 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 bettor? Some brixn history of game fixing, but main premise that all pro sports are fjx is based on a pretty flimsy argument where author confuses what is unlikely with what must be fixed.
But could it be a massive fis operation filled with greedy owners, crooked referees, and coddled players, all with the unstated goal of grabbing as much money as possible? Tuohy is a celebrity in his own right, and I’m confident Brian will one day be in the national spotlight for blowing the lid off all things sports by leaving no doubt once and for all that sports are nothing more than scripted entertainment for the masses.
