Manny Pacquiao Cheated out of Win

“I’m going to make a lot of money off the rematch”

— Bob Arum

Which is the reason Timothy Bradley won this fight.

It’s  hard to believe after watching that fight, an outcome other than a Pacquiao victory. Even the dude Bradley admitted he lost. But wait a minute, here comes the official scorecards. It’s a win for the guy who thought he had LOST!

Cheating in boxing is endemic. It’s what we expect.

Frankly, all sports are losing their luster. We expect cheating in sports, but not overt cheating. Boxing has always been seedly. NBA, fueled by questionable calls and a convicted gambler ref, is widely thought of as fixed. Major League Baseball’s umpires are under constant pressure to adapt new technology due to blown calls. NHL referees are under stress due to the unevenness of the officiating from one game to the next. The NFL, the greatest sport in America currently has its officials locked-out. They may replace them with officials from America’s second pro football league…the SEC.

Hey, sports: Stop listening to sports talk radio hosts saying “no one wants to watch {team not the favorite of sports talk radio hosts} “, and start putting the best teams out there, regardless of fan affiliation or potential ratings. Sorry but people don’t want to watch things they believe may be fixed unless they are known fixed…like pro wrestling.



About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
