HOME – The Fix Is In
Brian’s research efforts and ln writing skills are masterful and second to none. The NFL was facing criticism from the President and some people were calling for a boycott of the games. Craig Emms rated it it was amazing Feb 03, Proving beyond any shadow of a doubt that professional sports or, at least, key competitions are rigged is a near ks task.
Brian Tuohy maintains the website thefixisin. 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.
Bgian think the author overdoes it a bit in this book.
May 20, Perry rated it did not like it Shelves: Bellerdine rated it it was amazing Mar 01, He also states not all games are fixed just some important ones. Not a “conspiracy theory” book but more a list of “here are the facts and what if” book.
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.
If only every losing team had that excuse. 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.
After showcasing the ineffective media, why gambling is involved and how TV contracts are pushing the teams to highest paydays ever, he examines certain games to show how they were probably manipulated. Doug Pickett rated it liked it Jan 06, 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.
Feb 20, Glenn Proven rated it liked it. No trivia or quizzes yet. May 03, Chris weir rated it it was amazing. Bill Church rated it liked it Oct 25, Laid them out well and showed why manipulations occur.
The Monday after their first trip to the Super Bowl ina friend of my father told me, while in a bar on Saturday, he met a gambler on his way to AC who proclaimed an Oakland win on Sunday, asserting it was already decided.
Denny Luis rated it it was amazing Sep 26, The Fix Is In: I remember the Eagles first 2 trips.
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 Philadelphia franchise on their second trip met the NE Patriots. Many inconsistencies are highlighted here in this interesting read. Katie rated it it was ok Aug 02, si Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
The team played as under-dogs the remaining games, including all their playoff games despite being ranked 1 in the NFC. The book went through all the facts. This is the sports book every fan should read. Chris Huskey rated it really liked it Mar 03, Nov 24, Jake rated it really liked it.
Steven rated it really liked it Oct 30, Apr 03, G.
ESPN had even cited unrest among the owner, the coach and the quarterback. Fantastic couldnt put it down didnt want to. 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?
Personally, I will believe it was plucky courage that our troops rallied to defeat the greater foe and tuhy is what keeps my heart bumping Kelly green blood. As we all know, “it’s about the money” and “follow the money” are the only truisms in life. Books by Brian Tuohy.

Jan 16, Steve rated it it was amazing. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. 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.
Thanks for telling us about the problem.
