The Fix Is In: The Showbiz Manipulations of the NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL and NASCAR by Brian Tuohy
I was hoping for some tips on how to spot and bet on some of these games, but this book only deals in history, not bruan how to capitalize on it. The team played as under-dogs the remaining games, including all their playoff games despite being ranked 1 in the NFC.
Robert Plowman rated it it was amazing Jan 17, Thohy rated it it was ok Shelves: This started out with some potential – and was even convincing. I think the author overdoes it a bit in this book.
For someone who thought he knew sports, it is stunning what’s revealed in these pages. Thought provoking, for sure. So I wanted to know how the Patriots were going to cheat this time. However, Tuohy makes an extremely compelling case based on known facts, psychology and, more importantly, economics. ESPN had even cited unrest among the owner, the coach and the quarterback. Bill Church rated it liked it Oct 25, If only every losing team had that thd. Refresh and fid again.
A silly book that seems to confuse criminality with conspiracy.
So the Eagles being from Philly, were immediately given a Rocky type of story. This book may ruin sports for you. I remember the Eagles first 2 trips. This is the sports book every fan should read.
I wanted a positive outcome in the Super Bowl. Return to Book Page. Brian Tuohy maintains the website thefixisin. 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.

The Eagles defense had their worst game of the season. Apr 29, Sean Grabowski rated it it was amazing.
Denny Luis rated it it was amazing Sep 26, It’s hard to believe that pro sports are still pure and played with integrity when the leagues running them are able to exert so much control and influence over the games. But the Eagles breaking their Super Bowl curse, fox underdogs beating the hated champions, sure makes quite a story, sounds like a perfect addition to this book.
It was a very positive experience. Apr 03, G. Brian’s research efforts and creative writing skills are masterful and second to none. The author not only tears apart the leagues by exposing the ln 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. Jan 16, Steve rated it it was amazing.

The Monday after their first trip to the Super Bowl ina friend of my father told me, while in a bar on Gix, he met a gambler on his way to AC who proclaimed an Oakland win on Sunday, asserting it was already decided.

Lists with This Book. 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? 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.
Finally in the last month of the season and the loss of Carson Wentz, the Eagles started beating their chests screaming “Under-dog” as most of the country thought Philly was done. 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.
Jeff Kim rated it it was amazing Aug 10, He spends most of the early book going through arrests and gambling charges of players, refs and owners.
