Boxing & MMA are very clear fixes in my mind...it's just too easy to interfere with the outcomes.

I suspect many others, NFL & NCAA football namely. Perhaps not "fixed" under the normal suspicions. But, there are far too many (often incorrect, IMO) game-changing calls at key moments. I think some officials could either gets kickbacks or instructions that lead them to keep things close or shift momentum.

Wherever there is a ton of money to be made because of the matchup the public wants to see...it's fixed.

Used to be an avid NASCAR fan but with Jimmy Johnson winning 6 championships and his crew chief caught cheating time after time with only a slap on the wrist, my conclusion is this is no longer a valid sport. It has officially become "wrestling" on wheels.

Plot twist: Pro wrestling is real, everything is is fake and/or predetermined.

Love how they've legislated racing out of nascar. Restrictor plates, no fighting, before long they'll have to use turn signals to change lanes.
