Ever since former NFL running back Arian Foster’s offer up a tongue-n-cheek theory about the league being “rigged”, the unsubstantiated viral rumor has elicited strong responses.
On Monday, the NFL’s X (formerly known as Twitter) account got in on the joke, sharing a video it created capturing the responses of both current and former standouts on the topic.
ESPN NFL analyst former Steelers’ standout Ryan Clark lamented that nobody handed him the script for his 31-23 loss in Super Bowl XLV against the Packers.
The most hilarious response was provided by Giants defensive lineman Dexter Lawrence who lightheartedly admitted: “Yes I think the ‘NFL is Rigged… Shhh,” jokingly hinting that fans should keep it quiet.
No matter who supplies the responses, this rumor will likely never go away.
So... is the NFL scripted? 🤔 pic.twitter.com/z6kZu45mYO— NFL (@NFL) August 21, 2023
