NFL claps back at skeptics.

NEW YORK — Ever since the NFL crawled in bed with Vegas oddsmakers, skeptics have accused the league of scripting games. Those claims didn’t fall on deaf ears. That’s because to kick off the 2023 season, Commissioner Roger Goodell & Co. launched a new ad campaign to poke fun at the conspiracy of games being rigged. The risible series titled “You Can’t Make This Stuff Up” features comedian Keegan-Michael Key moderating a roundtable debate with players to generate storylines for the NFL’s 104th season. The brainstormers are: Kansas City Chiefs stars Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce, Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields, Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins, Seattle Seahawks receiver DK Metcalf, New York Giants d-lineman Dexter Lawrence, Miami Dolphins cornerback Jalen Ramsey and Cincinnati Bengals wideout Ja’Marr Chase.

Donna Kelce, Travis’ mom, is also involved.

“Okay, we need something juicy for midseason,” Keegan-Michael said to spark confabulation. Then he shifted his immediate cynosure to the final Sunday. “Speaking of Super Bowl, let’s skip to the last page,” Keegan-Michael instructed. “I’ve taken the liberty of writing something spectacular.” Social media reaction was priceless. One commenter wrote, “They’re getting us ready for another masonic ritual, I see. They really love to mock the sheeple.” Another chimed in with, “Does being scripted really matter if the story is good?” A third viewer added, “I love how they’re basically admitting that the NFL is scripted.😅😅”

“You Can’t Make This Stuff Up” will run the entire season with a total of 16 episodes.

Each installment will be tied to major milestones throughout the season.

The NFL has three official sportsbook partners — Caesars, DraftKings and FanDuel.

Point spreads and odds — once completely off-limits — are now integrated into pregame shows, media coverage, and television commercials.

Not to mention sportsbooks are shown frequently during games.

Lord have mercy.

Will you descry the series?

  1. I hope they know that if an unlikely contender wins the Super Bowl this season they will never beat the allegations 😂🤣😂

  2. @xxiheheixx4139: They should just own it like the WWE did… and create even better games

  3. Lol the nfl has a partnership with sportsbooks and individual teams not every play is scripted but certain ones are to determine outcomes and you might say why don’t they script it every game or every play if they did people would not watch and people would not gamble also it would be too obvious it’s to much money and partnerships for it not to be

  4. I guess I’m a little torn on these … they’re definitely really funny! But, at the same time, I know a lot of fans (including myself) throw a lot of time and passion rooting for our teams. And it does feel a little sickening when you’re watching a game that’s being highjacked by the refs and just feels rigged. Sometimes to the point where I don’t even want to watch anymore. So I don’t know … yeah … they’re funny. But if I was the NFL I’d spend a lot more time shoring up the credibility of the league and holding bad refs accountable. To me, that would do vastly more for the NFL than a few funny ads.

  5. People think the athletes, coaches, refs, etc. are real humans. SPOILER ALERT: they’re all androids programmed to play their roles. When they sign a contract, they’re signing over their life and soul! Then they get cloned/converted to an android. That’s a mandatory requirement to be in any professional sports league. WAKE UP SHEEPLE!

  6. Kevin Samuel’s is smiling knowing they using his “YOU CAN’T MAKE THIS STUFF UP” which he made popular!!! RIP KS

  7. If the Bengals win the Superbowl this year I guess Jamarr helped write a great script. I can’t see Roger okaying it though, lol

  8. Would be funny if the NFL wasn’t already scripted… 🤡 All major league and college sports are rigged. 🚮 🗑️ 💩

  9. 😂😂 it’s funny how they tryna make funny of it being scripted when it’s actually is . Smart move ain’t mad at y’all

  10. who’s idea was this? “yeah! let’s add fuel to the “games are rigged” conspiracy!”, don’t get me wrong, it is funny, but way to fan the flames NFL… you’ll see, if Mahomes gets injured early or something those freaking tin heads are going to get noisy again…

  11. Everyone look into the works of Zachary K Hubbard and his book Number Games 9/11 to Coronavirus and see how sports are scripted as theatre for the entertainment of the masses. Like ancient Rome and the coliseum, distracting the masses while they’re lives get violated by tyranny.

  12. The sad thing is that this process has been going on since Super Bowl LI. And then they have the AUDACITY to use actual actors to cover up the identities of the hidden scriptwriters. This is anything but a joke. This is defamation against those that know the truth.

  13. “It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.”

  14. If the Nfl told people if was scripted , people wouldn’t believe it. Its 2023 🤦‍♂️

  15. Jalen was way too excited to have Mahomes written out of the script 🤣🤣🤣🤣
