Super Bowl Rigged-Fiction! & Satire!

Summary of eRumor:

Rumors of rigging went viral on the Internet after the Seattle Seahawks soared to a 48-8 victory over the Denver Broncos at the 48th annual Super Bowl game.

The Truth:

The source for this hoax is an article found on the website, which “is a combination of real shocking news and satire news to keep its visitors in a state of disbelief,” according to a disclaimer on the bottom of the website and its Facebook page.

On February 2, 2014 the Seattle Seahawks handed the Denver Broncos one of the most lop-sided defeats in Super Bowl history, running up a 48-8 score that defied odds makers and broke the hearts of countless Coloradans.

Huzlers also reported that players on the Broncos and the Seahawks were high on marijuana during the Super Bowl.
