There is a new show on TrueTV, with former Navy Seal-Governor-Wrestler-Actor Jessie "The Body" Ventura, Conspiracy Theory. In this show, Ventura and his team of crack detective reporters looks at conspiracy theories, and try to either prove them as a hoax, or prove them correct.
Man, do I have show for them!
31 of the NFL teams got together after the Super Bowl last year, and decided that SOMETHING would have to be done against the Pittsburgh Steelers, to keep them from winning their seventh Lombardi Trophy this year. After destroying the hardest schedule last year, and winning the Super Bowl, the Steelers COULD NOT be allowed to win another Lombardi, because no team would be able to catch them.
Personally, I think Jerry Jones is the one that started this, but that can not be confirmed at this time.
The original plan was to have the officials make it impossible for the Steelers to win, however, Mike Pereira, the head of officials said they just would not do it. Not because they had a problem helping out, but because even when they call a game fair, they are accused of helping the Steelers win.
So the NFL had to go to plan B.
The Steelers were at 6-2, when the owners again got together to figure out what they were going to do, and decided that under NO circumstances would they allow the Steelers to win it all this year.
Lucky for the NFL, the Steelers went on a five game losing streak, losing to some of the worst teams in the NFL. The owners rejoiced. It was a happy day for the NFL.
On a conference call between the 31 teams, a horrible plan was put in place to not allow the Steelers to make the playoffs.
The Indianapolis Colts agreed to forfeit their perfect season, by intentionally throwing the game against the New York Jets. At halftime of the game, Colts GM Bill Polian phoned down to Jim Caldwell and instructed him that he was to pull every player of value on the team, and let the Jets win.
Think I am kidding? Did you hear the press conference of Rex Ryan from last week where he said his "letter to Santa" included all of the players that would not play against him? That was not a letter to Santa, it was a letter to Polian with who he needed to sit for the Jets to win.
Knowing this, the Colts moved some kid from the practice squad to the active roster so that he could be the sacrificial lamb to the Jets. It worked, and the Jets won.
With the Ravens defeating the Steelers, and the Jets defeating the Colts, the Steelers would be eliminated, and the plan would be complete. Only problem is, the Ravens lost to the Steelers, so further action needed to be taken.
The NFL looked at all the playoff scenarios, and decided to make it even easier to get those pesky Steelers out of the playoffs.
The Jets needed to defeat the Bengals, who are battling the Patriots for the number three seed. This is one of the easiest fixes that the NFL has. The Patriots still owe the NFL big time, for sweeping the whole "Spygate" thing under the rug, and destroying the evidence, so the Patriots have been instructed to allow the Texans to defeat them.
To take it one step further, in case something happens, and the Patriots do win, the NFL has decided to move the Bengals-Jets game to prime time as their back up. The Bengals will be more than happy to lay down, and give the Jets the playoffs because the last thing THEY want, is the Steelers to make the playoffs.
The last time the Steelers entered the playoffs as the six seed, they knocked the Bengals out of their first playoff appearance in two decades. There is NO WAY the Bengals want to have that happen again.
A lot needs to happen for the Steelers to make the playoffs this year, and it is looking more and more like it is all a ploy by the NFL to keep them from being there.
Come on now, Governor. This show is a guaranteed winner. I am sure you can uncover the truth!
