It's almost guaranteed that someone with actual access to NFL.com's database is doing this. (An NFL.com web developer, IT employee, or IT contractor of some sort for them.) What a damned joke.
Sigh. Really? Thats what we've come to? It MUST be someone with access to the actual DB changing the votes?
I give up. LOL. Hilarious.
It would be easier to update with a script. Trust me, much easier, faster and less detection. If it were me, I would connect to it with the same service account that is used by the front end web server, it would be undetected as that account would be writing to it in mass anyways.
It could easily be formulated to update the table as a result of another table being updated. It has been holding at around 23k difference for over an hour. Within a few hundred votes of that 23k.
No biggy, it is kind of funny actually.
