South Florida Super Bowl Host Committee Chairman Grumbles About 'Fix' For New York

It seems nothing involved with the Super Bowl is allowed to transpire without talk of a conspiracy or a fix. A contingent of Colts fans believe Peyton Manning intentionally threw this year's Super Bowl. Some folks think referees purposefully ignored Santonio Holmes excessive penalty the year before. Patriots fans took issue with funky clock problems in the waning minutes of Super Bowl XLII. Pretty much anything contentious linked with the Super Bowl brings out the conspiracy nut in people, that is assuming they are on the losing side.

And it doesn't even have to be on the field. Rodney Barreto, the chairman of the South Florida Super Bowl host committee is of the opinion that the NFL fixed the selection process for the host site of Super Bowl XLVIII. Whatever that's supposed to mean.

"The fix was in for New York. We threw $1 million extra on the table last night for game-day expenses. We could have put $10 million and it wouldn't have made a difference. We put an incredible presentation that clearly was head-and-shoulders above everyone.''
