#165 - He Did More Than That - The Historicalness of O.J. Simpson

This week, we delve into the history of a man who came from humble beginnings to become an icon, that almost transcended race, while compiling a Hall of Fame football career, starring in countless tv shows & movies, and appearing in commercials for every product imaginable. Under the smiling facade, was a very flawed person, who also enjoyed cocaine, many, many women, and rocky circumstances with his long term relationships. His world crumbles amid early domestic violence, strong arm...


#164 - Magical Mystery Brain Damage - The Untoldness of Roberto Medina

This week, we take a look at a man who came on to the boxing scene, literally out of nowhere. He seemingly had no past, but he certainly had a future in fighting. He made it all the way to the national stage before questions arose. Questions like "who is this guy?" cause his secret to be exposed, and his world to crumble. Just when you maybe start to feel bad for him, you find out something even more sinister!! Start boxing at an older age than usual, have all your secrets exposed, then...


#163 - Too Fast, Too Soon - The Put-uponness of Jennifer Capriati

This week, we once again look at the question of just how young is too young to force your child to be a bread winning, family supporting professional athlete. I think we can now safely say that 13 might be the answer. She burst on to the international tennis scene as a 7th grader, and quickly took the world by storm. She also began to hate her forced profession, and all that surrounded it, leading to years of problems & resentment. After a major career comeback, an injury forces her into a...


#162 - The Cathouse Killings - The Unsalvageableness of David Tyner

This week, we crawl into the life of a man who had plenty of promise. He was a state wrestling champion, and even earned a college scholarship. But it all fell apart. He tried his hand in some MMA competition, but ultimately washed out of the sport, much like college, and the Marines. What's left for a guy like that? Enforcer for a drug kingpin, of course. But when he thinks he's not being compensated like he should for his work, a plan is hatched... This plan results in some of the most...


#161 - A Wombleybing In Your Dingamaroo - The Exploitativeness of Lorrie Wilmot

This week, we look at a man who was revered in his home country, and was one of his sport's more popular players. He played for decades, before retiring to a quiet life as a paprika farmer, in the countryside. This all sounds wonderful, except for the fact that he also crushes the back roads, looking for women to pay for all sorts of non sports related activities! The trial, the appeals.. it's a mess! Does he end up getting away with his reprehensible crime?? Find out! Also, we have no luck...


#160 - Just Say... YES! - The Wastedness of Richard Dumas

This week, we concentrate on the question "what could have been?" with one of the biggest wastes of talent that professional sports has ever produced. He had the potential to be in the Hall of Fame, but he had other priorities. Mainly, using copious amounts of cocaine, and ruining every chance that he was repeatedly given. He disappointed everyone, including himself, but finally seemed to find a better way in life... until he decided to screw that up, and commit some federal crime. He's a...


#159 - Kidney Gummies & Dirty Syringes - The of Roboticness Todd Marinovich

This week, we answer the question of whether you can breed, and build the perfect athlete. The answer is a resounding "no". Trained from birth to be the perfect football player, he followed this path of success, until he was overwhelmed by it all. What follows is a sad tale of drugs, arrests, more drugs, and being found naked in a place he doesn't belong, even if he had clothes on. It's a crazy adventure, the entire way. What a weird one!! Suck on a kidney in your crib, be trained by...


#158 - A First Class Crack Smoker - The Prolificness of Sammy Stewart

This week, we journey down a path that has surprises at every turn. As a young man, sports was all he was consumed by, never even understanding why people would ever want to do drugs. A major league baseball career later, cocaine was all he was consumed by. He lived on the streets, panhandled, ignored his family, and most of all, smoked a whole lot of crack. Prison, deaths, embarrassment, nothing seemed to stop his desire to destroy his life. Good thing for us, it's as hilarious as it is...


#157 - Arrest Bingo Card - The Acquittedness of Nile Ranger

This week, we take a look at a guy who got in trouble from a young age, and hasn't slowed down since. He was seemingly sheltered from consequences due to his soccer ability. To the point where teams sign him, the same week he's been arrested! And what has he been arrested for? Well... Armed robbery, assault, mischief, money laundering, drunk driving, sexual assault... That's some of them. There is simply too much to list. Let's just say that this one is way more crime than sports!! Be...


#156 - The King Of Rikers Island - The Unflinchingness of Mitch "Blood" Green

This week, we encounter a legend. Both in his own mind, and in the annuls of various police departments. He was a gang leader, who turned his aggression into a boxing career, only to be sidetracked by stupidity, Mike Tyson, and PCP. His list of indiscretions range from a 4am street fight with Mike Tyson, to drugs, terrible driving, assault, and a crime that we've never had on the show, or even heard of before. This is a wild ride, from start to finish!! Fight your way out of the projects,...


#155 - Let Me Have You - The Beardedness of Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart

This week, we travel down a rocky road of crazy adventures, and a spiral that leads to gas station drug busts, being removed from planes by Federal Marshalls & public meltdowns. He was a star during the boom period of wrestling, in the 1980's, and lived a fast paced, wild life. In the end, his downfall happened gradually, as the money dried up, but the addictions grew stronger, causing some embarrassing scenes for all concerned. It's a fun, but sad tale, but we promise one thing, it's never...


#154 - Falsified Documents & Nazi Tattoos - The Opaqueness of Brandon "White Steel" Saling

This week, we explore the world of a guy, who just wanted to be a fighter. He would do anything to get to that dream, including hiding a past that includes some of the most reprehensible crimes you can commit. He hid in plain sight, until his whole facade came crashing down... one of his fights. With his past revealed, do you think he straightened up, flew right, and redoubled his efforts? Or, do you think he acted even worse, and went to prison, as a result? Find out! It's Brandon "White...


#153 - The Creepy Sleeper - The Beltlessness of Cecil "The Diesel" Collins

This week, we try to break through the line, with a man who always understood one thing, that his athletic ability would always keep him out of trouble, and from having to learn how to be a normal member of society. His football career was brief, but extremely promising. He may have been a hall of fame player one day, if only for the small detail that he could not stop climbing into people's homes, while they slept. And that's not all he did while he was in those homes. This dude is truly...


#152 - Is There Cocaine In That Dumpster? - The Amphibiousness of Chris Washburn

This week, we stare up at a giant of a man, who just never figured out how to be a functioning, adult member of society. Everything was taken care of for him, like bad grades, lazy play, or even brushes with the law, until one day, things weren't taken care of, and his life quickly spiraled out of control. He was arrested for everything from slapping female college students, to burglary, and cocaine. A whole lot of cocaine. This episode is truly what Crime In Sports is all about!! Score...


#151 - Swerving Out Of The Fast Lane - The Edginess of Lyndon "LB" Byers

This week, we skate full speed into the boards, with a guy that we can't help but find entertaining, and a bit likable. He was a professional goon, fighting his way into the NHL, and hanging on for years with his tenacity. He had more fights than 5 average boxers, combined. He also liked to live on the edge, off the ice, where his drinking, and partying exploits are of are legendary proportions. This leads to terrible driving, among other problems, and lands him in jail, but he gets out in...


#150 - Aristotle In His Underpants - The Philosophicalness of Stephen Bailey

This week, we look at a man from a prominent, and respected sports family, who followed in his legendary grandfather's footsteps... For a while, anyway. He was always considered a kind, quiet guy, until mental illness started to take over. After a few years of psychotic incidents, such as believing that his sister was an ISIS clone, sent to destroy him, or that he is actually the offspring of Greek Gods. Not to mention, thinking was Jesus for a little while. Needless to say, this situation...


#149 - The Fallen Boy Scout (And The Scummie Awards!!) - The Diminutiveness of Chuck Knoblauch

This week, before we get to the Scummie Awards, we dodge an errant throw from a man who was bred for baseball. It was his dream, from the time he could remember, and he achieved that dream, despite his smaller stature. Although he was very successful, someone his brain just wouldn't let the good times roll, and it ruined his career, and sent a sportscaster's mother to the hospital. Unfortunately, it wouldn't be the last person he sent to the hospital, as his personal life started to crumble,...


#148 - Keep The Punching In The Ring - The Heedlessness of Diego "Chico" Corrales

This week, we stroll down a dangerous path, with a dangerous guy. He came from some very tough circumstances to achieve wealth, fame, and champion status. The problem was, he just couldn't keep his fighting inside the ring. His violent tendencies at home, mixed with his reckless nature out in the world, leads to a life of constant issues, and eventually leads to one of the craziest episode endings in CIS history!! Steal cigarettes from strangers while you're still in diapers, never take a...


#147 - Duct Tape, Steroids & Carpet Jesus - The Unsettledness of Jeremy "The Scorpion" Jackson

This week, we duck a left hook of crazy, with a man who was right at the cusp of something big, until he let his demons take the wheel. He fought his way out of nowhere to get the attention of the UFC, only to be kicked off a reality show for not following the rules. He would continue down that path, with drugs, alcohol, and sleeping in his trunk. He somehow got another chance, but blew it even bigger with a horrific act of violence! He's a fun one! Get duct taped to a tree, take a carpet...


#146 - The Bill Cosby Of The Super Bowl - The Creepiness of Darren Sharper

This week, we look at a man who did everything in life the right way, including becoming a Super Bowl champion, until seemingly falling off a cliff of depravity, and committing some of the worst crimes that we've ever heard of. He went from being described as polite, and caring while doing charity work, to being an absolute real life monster, who stalked the VIP sections of high dollar night clubs for his next victims. He's the worst, and we certainly tell you why!! Compete with your...
