A weak number 1 for all your non-American viewers. Just because you call it a World Series doesn't mean the world cares.

Donald Sterling isn’t even an athlete, he was just an owner of a basketball team, why don’t you put Eddie DeBartolo Jr. the former owner of the 49ers. Also Tonya Harding and other ice skaters are snowflakes, they’re so full of themselves!

Highest Batting average of the series (.375), The Series ONLY home run. 6 RBIs, threw out 7 baserunners and fielded 30 other outs. If that is Shoeless Joe throwing a game, I would have loved to have seen the definition of him trying to win. The MLB took advantage of his illiteracy to get that confession. MLB, overturn the suspension and put him posthumously in the Hall!!

"...as if that's any consolation." BIG difference between betting for your team and betting against your team. Rose bet on the Reds to win, which shows why he went into debt with bookies in the 80s. If he was being against them, they would've lost more games and he'd have more money. You can't throw a game if your bet is on your team to win. Reinstate Pete Rose. It's ridiculous having a Hall of Fame without the All-Time Hits Leader. It's insane setting my son open a pack of baseball cards and seeing "the all-time hits leader" in text instead of "Pete Rose" (yeah, his name cannot even be printed on a licensed baseball card).

Pete rose bet that his team would win its not like he was throwing games to gain income. Hes ok on my book

Ali's argument to refuse the draft as a consciouses objector to the war was institutional racism by the military during the Vietnam War. They declared the Nation of Islam ineligible for deferment and made it harder for blacks to obtain a deferment from being drafted. That's why it was later overturned when it became blatantly obvious and rampant of the institutional racism in the draft and military in general. This was the same time as the Civil Rights movements.

MotorCity SportsSwami it’s a boring game anyway so its needs a bit of spicing up 👍
MotorCity SportsSwami (6 months ago)
No...just an antiquated rule against associating with gamblers that dates back to the 1800s, when it was a "gentleman's game", and gentlemen didn't associate with bookies and gamblers because it was illegal. I understand the reasoning, because at the time, players still held jobs in the off-season to make ends meet, and the owners made them indentured servants, so fixing a game could be appealling to a player, but with the salaries of today, I cannot see a player conspiring to throw a game...hence why the Rose suspension makes no sense at all.

Ali was banned because he didn't want to be in the Vietnam war?
MotorCity SportsSwami (6 months ago)
Correct. He claimed he was a conscientious objector because Islam did not allow for violence like this. Hence the name change. The U.S. government didn't agree, mostly because he was black, but also because he converted to claim C.O. status. Damn U.S. government was shadier in that war than anyone on this list...and only slightly better than its current government.

Is this the usual American (sport) bia's? how is Rose #1? Unless you didn't tell us, he didn't fix any games... I would say Lance Armstrong had a much lager impact surrounding his ban.
MotorCity SportsSwami (6 months ago)
Because if that's the case, the taint, there are two hall of fame pitchers that need to be stricken from the books for admitting to doctoring the ball throughout their careers...Whitey Ford and Gaylord Perry.
MotorCity SportsSwami (6 months ago)
@Red X the only argument I have with that is that the taint isn't something that changed any records. It's not like they juiced and broke records. They did something that was outside the game. No concrete proof against every player on the Sox, and no proof Rose bet against the Reds. Their actions never affected the game. It's almost as absurd as the brief banning of Mantle after his career was done.
Red X (6 months ago)
@MotorCity SportsSwami The whole point is to ban them not only from play but from the record books. It doesn't matter how good you play, you're tainted. Now, I agree that Joe and Pete probably should be reinstated, but it's not our call.
MotorCity SportsSwami (6 months ago)
@Red X Which is, in essence, a lifetime ban, because I don't see Ted Williams rising from the grave to bat .355. 😜 Now that they cannot physically play anymore, it's time to remove their bans. Rose, that should be reevaluated, as he holds a major record. He's too old to play. No team would hire him to manage. The most the Reds would do is make him scout or coach or special assistant, like Al Kaline and Alan Trammell do in Detroit. He could tell the younger players the risks of behavior like his first-hand.
Red X (6 months ago)
@MotorCity SportsSwami The exact wording of the ban is as follows: Regardless of the verdict of juries, no player who throws a ball game, no player who undertakes or promises to throw a ball game, no player who sits in confidence with a bunch of crooked ballplayers and gamblers, where the ways and means of throwing a game are discussed and does not promptly tell his club about it, will ever play professional baseball. They weren't banned "for life", they were banned "forever"

For those wondering on the dishonourable mention, Roy Tarpley was banned from the NBA due to his drug and alcohol abuse along with violating with the terms of the personal aftercare programme at the end of 1995, resulting in playing in overseas basketball clubs in Greece, Cyprus, Russia and China until 2001.

Peter Thorsen for Japan? Actually no. Sumo is... special in a way. Because of the amount of dedication required, it is not that popular. It and martial arts are considered a life style rather than a sport. Baseball is the national sport of Japan with football (soccer) coming behind it and basketball rising in popularity but does not yet have a national league. To put in perspective, Sumo does not have a league. There will be competitions, but if you dedicate your life to sumo wrestling, you are doing just that, giving your life to the art. What you eat, how you dress, your work out, where you live, your private life, etc. It’s a profession for sure but it’s not something any person can just do naturally. Similar for martial arts like Karate, Jujitsu, and Judo. If you choose that as a lifestyle, you will dedicate yourself to a dojo. There is no league but there will be competitions. It can be picked up more casually with professionals training others to withhold traditions, but Japan lists it less as a sport and more as a way of life that defines the history of their culture. Each fighting style has a code of ethics to follow similar to a religion or book of chivalry. Something most sports would not have.
Peter Thorsen (6 months ago)
@ザイア Isn't Sumo/Martial arts the national sport (Though not the most popular). Far as I know baseball isn't that high ranked world wide, atleast not in popularity.
