Your opinion on paid-off athletes / refs to blow games
The latest rumor is that typically reliable San Diego Chargers kicker Nate Kaeding was paid-off by the New York Mob to throw the game. Whether this gossip is true or not, we've seen this sort of thing before in the world of sports. What are your opinions on persons found guilty of being paid off to lose a game?

I think they should be kicked out, forced to pay fans back the money spent on the game, and should have to endure insults, spit wads, and puck/football/baseball/basketball shots to the "body" from us fans.

Ahhh yes, Ray Finkle.  Just goes to show you what missing a clutch FG can do to you mentally.  Mr. Finkle became Lieutenant Einhorn.  Yikes....  Good thing we had this guy to solve the case.

I've heard of them being Jets fans as well, or whichever team is still in competition.

It may not have even been a bribe, but a threat against him or his family. If this were the truth, it would make for a great "made-for-tv" movie and one of the biggest conspiracies in sports history.

Sounds kinda of off to me, I think he had a bad game besides, his points would not have made a difference on the spread. Jets got lucky at the end and that will be their last game of this series imh.

These days in sports, there is not any one consequence for the same offense. I am sure this will go unfounded. If not I am sure there will be a court hearing, that will take years to end.

I think it blows when players don't give it all they have and refs don't call games to the best of their ability. And I also think it blows when coaches (Belichick) are willing ( the head coach of New England) to (Patriots coach = cheater) cheat...
