New England quarterback Tom Brady walked onto the field at Mercedes-Benz Stadium for Sunday's Super Bowl against the Los Angles Rams and greeted a lot of people.
Among those was game referee John Parry and the Internet exploded with a familiar conspiracy: the fix is in, the Patriots will win Super Bowl 53.

Today's refs are going to be like:— BuffaloPrime (@BuffaloPrime) February 3, 2019
"Tom Brady didn't get a first down. 15 yard penalty. Automatic first down."
if brady wins this pls don’t blame it on the refs— JJ (@lulreeseee) February 3, 2019
Parry began his NFL officiating career in the 2000 season as a side judge. He became a referee in 2007.
Since 2007, he has officiated in seven games featuring the Rams, all won by L.A. — including the Rams’ Wild Card win over Dallas.
The Patriots are 9-5 in 14 games with Parry as the head official, that includes a 17-10 loss to Pittsburgh in Week 15 this season. Parry was the referee in one other New England Super Bowl, their 2012 loss to the New York Giants.
