    Default Corruption in sports gdg

    Wow, over 600 professional soccer games rigged in an international betting scam. The most passionate fans in the world that beat each other up in the stands regularly are doing it over fake games. I sometimes wonder if it is worthwhile to waste another minute watching sports.

    I'm not a fan of soccer haven't even watched a game but a betting scandal in the most popular sport in the world at its highest level is huge. What is funny is how do you shave points in a game that scores less goals than hockey.

    Truthfully this could be the biggest sports story in the world this year before all is said and done. It seriously makes me question why bother watching any of it. Well of course horse racing not included we all know no corruption exist at the track.

    It makes sense now that I think about it. I once asked a sports book director friend why they don't put up more odds on soccer matches and he told me that they couldn't trust the officials to call an honest game
