Canadian TV station appears to stir up NFL script conspiracies with 49ers-Ravens Super Bowl graphic

• SF Gate

A Canadian public television station has gotten NFL conspiracy theorists stirred up in a frenzy that this year's Super Bowl may be rigged in the 49ers' favor.

A photo of a Jan. 18 broadcast of CTV News Vancouver Island has been making the rounds online because of a curious description of the Feb. 11 championship game. In a box placed near the bottom-right corner of the screen, the description reads, "Reba McEntire, Usher, and Post Malone are slated to perform at San Francisco 49ers & Baltimore Ravens Super Bowl match-up on February 11."

Of course, the second round of the playoffs hadn't even begun when that broadcast went out, leading many on social media to joke — at least we hope they're joking — that the NFL's supposed script for the playoffs had leaked.
