Was the Super Bowl Rigged? Many football fans and critics are coming out stating that the Super Bowl was not a fair match after the Seattle blowout over Denver 43-8.
While the Seattle Seahawks are a fierce team to be reckoned with, football critics are coming out saying that there is no way the Denver Broncos would have such an upsetting loss. Denver fans are calling the super bowl rigged after Peyton Manning and his offense failed to perform during Super Bowl 48.
Speculations of the Super Bowl being a tampered event have been propelled even further by satire articles published by The Huzlers. In their article, The Huzlers states that an investigation is underway by the NFL as they suspect the game was rigged. They even quoted referee Terry McAulay telling reporters that Peyton Manning went up to Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and asked, “When are you going to pay up?”
Of course, the entire article is a satire piece and in no way resembles the truth. However, the article did raise questions about the Super Bowl as the Broncos were predicted to defeat the Seahawks by a narrow margin.
Meanwhile, the NFL officially states that the Super Bowl was in no way rigged and that the Seattle Seahawks are the true victors of Super Bowl XLVIII.
