#340 - Charlie Chaplin Can't Save You - "Big" Bill Tilden

This week, we check out of the greatest tennis players who has ever lived. He's a hall of famer, and a lot of his records still stand, today. He was also a real character, writing Broadway plays, starring in silent films, and hanging out with the biggest celebrities of his day, including Charlie Chaplin. He also led a life of secrecy from the general public, hiding his true life from the outside world. He is eventually arrested for a terrible crime, and when you think it can't get any worse, he does it again. And again. His tale has a pathetic ending, from one of the most prolific people of his time!!

#339 - You Take The Whole Bottle - Golden Richards

This week, we look at a man who played for the Dallas Cowboys, with his golden hair, matching his name, and flowing from the back of his 1970s helmet. But there was definitely more going on than most knew. He was using pain pills to an absolutely insane level. He got so bad that his morning ritual will make you want to gag. This obviously ends up with legal problems, and an exorbitant amount of health issues!! A simply crazy story of the downfall of a "Golden Boy"! Be the perfect Mormon boy, until you get to Dallas, tell everyone that your teeth hurt, and rummage through a college student's medicine cabinet for pills with Golden Richards!!

#338 - One Tough Broad - Evelyn Stevens

This week, we look into a very different corner of the world, ladies wrestling! The old school women wrestlers were a tough lot. They could perform in the ring, then go clear out a West Texas bar with their fists! This particular woman was one of the very few to claim a legit win over the Fabulous Moolah! She was also married to a famous wrestler, and dated another, before ending up married to gym owner/bodybuilding trainer, and going down a rocky road. Neighbors watched them fighting, in the snow, and heard them fighting, in the house. This all leads to crazy showdown, that is reminiscent of another CIS subject, Sally McNeil! Marry a wrestler, who will NEVER let another man call you a "whore", win the world title from the Fabulous Moolah, and make sure to lave a note, admitting to your crime with Evelyn Stevens!!

#337 - Jonestown... Or Idi Amin?? - John Brisker

This week, we look at a man who never met a fight that he didn't like. He fought his way from the projects, to college, where he did a strange combination of extracurricular activities. He was the most feared man in the ABA, regularly punching out both opponents & teammates. His time in the NBA was cut short by his violent nature, so he went to Uganda to hang out with the dictator, Idi Amin... and was never heard from again. Or, did he die in Jonestown, with his aunt? Or, is he still alive somewhere, hiding from his problems? Introduce yourself using your fists, turn basketball into a contact sport, and be called "Lebron James with anger issues" with John Brisker!!

#336 - Violent, Nasty & Possibly Misunderstood - Ty Cobb

This week, we go back in time to check out one of the most celebrated & controversial athletes of all time. He held just about every hitting record possible, when he retired, but this story is all about the craziness that surrounded him. His father & mother had about the grossest relationship ever, which ended violently. Ty was a violent guy, alcoholic, and one of the fiercest competitors to ever play any sport. He also got arrested for some crazy things. But is everything we've ever heard about Ty actually true? Or, was a lot of it the imagination of an author, looking to sell books?? Either way, this is one wild story! Be a product of the most disgusting "relationship" of all time, hit over .400 on multiple occasions, and fight a butcher over your wife's fish order with Ty Cobb!!

#335 - Crack, Sacks & Sex - The Infamousness of Lawrence Taylor

This week, we finally look at one of the most requested athletes we've ever had. He is as legendary an NFL player as there is, changing the entire way the game is coached & played. He even headlined Wrestlemania. He also LOVED cocaine, crack, and prostitutes. Obviously, this leads to nothing but trouble with wives, the NFL, and most of all, police. The l;ast 40 years of his life have been nothing but glory, or drama. No middle ground, here. A simply wild & crazy life! Change the way a game is played, be the most feared player in the league, get arrested for everything from crack to being with an underage prostitute with Lawrence Taylor!!

#334 - Better Than Hitler - Maxim "Mad Max" Novoselov

This week, we wade into seriously crazy waters with a Russian MMA fighter, who has killed multiple people, in brutal & extreme ways. Not only participating in death matches, but also in his business life. He trains with axes, hatchets, and bears, and even taught other prisoners how to do so, during one of his frequent stays. He is as much of a mystery as he is anything else, with his shadowy businesses, and crime underground past. One of the wildest people that we've ever covered! Fight in death matches, at the edge of a quarry, lock people in a room & burn them alive, then brutalize your sparring partner with an axe with Maxim "Mad Mad" Novoselov!!

#333 - Groping Your Way To The Top - The Handsiness of Christian Peter

This week, we look at a man who seemed made to play in the NFL. Huge, aggressive & reckless are some of the words that come to mind when thinking of him. Also, drunk, arrogant, and active with his hands. He was arrested at least 8 times just during his college career, while taking responsibility for some things, and none, for other things. His brother, Jason, also led a wild life & NFL career, with a crazy book about his own addiction to crack & heroin! This is one interesting pair of brothers!!

#332 - A Tornado In A China Shop - The Bulkiness of Scott "Big Poppa Pump" Steiner

This week, we climb into the ring with a man who is known as being a little wacky, even for professional wrestling! He started a an All American wrestler in college, but was soon teaming with his brother, and conquering the pros. He has worked in all the major organizations, known as a large, dangerous man who has a hair trigger temper. This results in some truly wild behavior, including a couple of small, dumb acts, that could've landed him in prison for 25 years!

#331 - Style, Murder & Pee - The Flamboyantness of Hector "Macho" Camacho

This week, we check out one of the most flamboyant, wild, and successful boxers who has ever lived. His outfits. His crazy entrances. And even his in ring style was different from all the rest. Unfortunately, his style of getting arrested was also very different. Whether it's having sex, while driving a Ferrari on the freeway, or just dropping through an electronics store ceiling, to steal lap tops, and urinate in the fax machine. He fought cops, regular people, his wife, and his girlfriend, in the street. All of this while being on an insane amount of cocaine! In the end, the whole thing is a murder mystery, for the ages!! Call going to Rikers Island "just having some fun", snort more cocaine by yourself than most mid sized cities, and have one of your girlfriends & your sister fight at your funeral with Hector "Macho" Camacho!!

#330 - All You Need Is Love... And Heroin - The Unenlightenedness of Reggie Harding

This week, we look at the first high school basketball player to be drafted by the NBA. The problem was, by that time, he was already accumulating a criminal record that would far surpass anything he would ever do on the basketball court. He was accused of awful things, including an allegedly doing one of those awful things to a future member of The Supremes. He never learned his lesson. Kept drinking, shooting heroin, and finally robbing drug dealers to make a living. This all ends as badly as you might think, but the story isn't over, because his son (a junior) has done even worse things!! Go straight from high school to the NBA, knock a policeman's hat off his head, and turn into your local, neighborhood Omar with Reggie Harding!!

#329 - Drugs, Death Penalties & Shipping Fees - The Innovativeness of Reginald Spiers

This week, we check out one of the weirdest, craziest stories, ever! He was an Australian javelin thrower, but there isn't much sports to talk about here. Why? Because this guy did so much more. Including putting himself into a wooden box, and shipping himself COD from London, all the way to Australia. From there, he got deep into drug smuggling, with some pretty ingenious ideas. Only problem is, he keeps getting caught. Including being caught with heroin in Sri Lanka, and being sentenced to death! Did he survive to smuggle another day?? Throw things for international acclaim, ship yourself 13,000 miles, and start a smuggling ring with all of your best friends with Reginald Spiers!!

#328 - Gangs, Guns, Patriots & Prison - The Truculentness of Aaron Hernandez

This week, we look at one of the violent, aggressive, and disturbing individuals, to ever enter the NFL. And that's saying something. From his early, and ongoing gang ties, to the fact that he was pretty sure he could get away with anything. He almost did get away with anything, until the bullets started flying. His best friend accused him of shooting this friend in the eye, and he was tried for 3 different murders! His prison life was just as crazy, with fights, attacks, and eventually ending it all, in a horrific way, and leaving a few notes behind! Be too crazy for football, shoot your best friend over a minor disagreement, and be convicted for the murder of another friend, while being tried for two more murders with Aaron Hernandez!!

#327 - Popeye, Superman, Or The Devil - The Unmanageableness of "Fast" Eddie Rothman

This week, we catch a huge wave... of crime, with a legend of the North Shore surf scene. He has had a lot to do with tournaments, and competitions, all around the islands, but he is best known for starting what could have definitely been called a gang, consisting of local surfers, using threats & physical force to keep the waves all to the locals. The group was also accused of being a crime ring, complete with drug trafficking, and the violence to back up those activities. A gruff, tough guy, with a dark past, and one of the most harrowing childhoods ever!! Be at home on the waves, fight to keep tourists off of those waves, and beat several local, state, and federal charges, for drugs to violence with "Fast" Eddie Rothman!!

#326 - The Most Dangerous Man In The Mafia - The Mercilessness of Joe "The Animal" Barboza

This week, we look at a man who was born into terrible circumstances, and only made them worse. He had a brief boxing career, but this story is all about crime, murder, mayhem, and a man who will bite your face off! He was a loanshark, bookie, and general all around New England mob associate, who spread out into murder with such ferocity that the head of the FBI called him the most dangerous man in the United States. As you might imagine, this story doesn't end well for anyone, and it ends exactly the way the rest of the story was... violently!

#325 - Too Many Accusations, Not Enough Jail - The Slipperiness of "Jungle" Jim Rivera

This week, we go back in time to look at man man who grew up in an orphanage, during The Great Depression! He turned to street gangs, boxing & baseball, but WWII came calling before he could become a pro at anything. While in the Army, he was boxing champion, and convicted rapist, sentenced to life in military prison, but he gets another shot at the outside world, because he happens to be the star of the prison baseball team. A major league career, brings him some World Series glory, a cool nickname, and more sexually deviant charges. Even retirement, and old age doesn't stop more very awful charges from coming his way!! Grow up in an orphanage, even though your father is still alive, get thrown in prison, rather than fighting Hitler, and always slip out of truly disgusting accusations with "Jungle" Jim Rivera!!

#324 - The Most Beloved Hated Man - The Impetuousness of Allen "The Answer" Iverson

This week, we bask in the long, successful, and insane life of a guy who was as good as it gets, on the basketball court, but a little shaky, off it. He is always fearless, and that fearlessness also translates to police, and court proceedings, Whether it's telling a police officer to go ahead, and take his Lamborghini, because he "has 10 more", or allegedly throwing his naked wife out of the house... multiple times. Or, maybe it's just running into his cousin's apartment, armed, and angry, threatening to "make an example" of someone. Whatever he does, it's a party. But not a party at Bally's Casino, because he urinated into a garbage can there, and isn't allowed back on the property!!

This week, we look at an NFL player, who burst onto the scene with force, becoming one of the best defensive prospects in a generation. And that's exactly what happened... For a little while, anyway. Then he started getting arrested. And kept getting arrested. Booze, violence, drugs, terrible driving, jumping from windows while holding a tequila bottle, and with possible blood, dripping from his mouth. He's become a bit of a menace, not only to himself, but anyone who accepts his wedding proposal, or comes to his house for a party. This story is loaded with crime!

This week, we check out a man who has kept large crowds on their toes, for decades. Whether it's diving off a 20 foot ladder onto their opponent, or being a spectacle in the local police files, he has always been one to watch! He has always been considered one of the best wrestlers, ever, but he never sticks around any promotion long enough to be the backbone, due to his constant drug/alcohol problems, and his general outright refusal to get help, even when his high paying job is on the line. He crashes, he paints himself, he can be a walking disaster! It's Jeff Hardy!! Learn to sew when you're 9 years old, refuse any help, even if your job depends on it, and ride 105 feet down a roadside guardrail with Jeff Hardy!!

#321 - The Real Murdering McCoy - The Realness of Charles "Kid" McCoy AKA Norman Selby

This week, we go back to a much different time, with a man who had his first boxing match in 1891, after learning to fight against "hobos" in train cars at age 13! He wasn't some boring, old timey guy, though. He was a scammer, and a flamboyant fighter, who did many things for the first time. He invented "your shoes are untied", then knocking someone out, when they looked down. He employed thumbtacks. He was a part of fixed fights. He did it all. Including appearing in many silent films, and even teaching Charlie Chaplin to box. All of this leads to a terrible murder, of course. A murder that sends him to prison, where he does more interesting things! A wild trip down a black & white lane!! Run away from home at 13, become the first showboat of boxing, and try to convince the police that the woman you're having an affair with actually stabbed & shot herself with Charles "Kid" McCoy!!

#320 - Jailing Nemo - The Designatedness of Nemessis Bates

This week, we look at the story of a man, who never quite achieved his goal to be an NFL player, did achieve a lot in the worlds of both car washing, and violence! He was involved with what could be described as "the wrong people", who were involved in an underground enterprise, so big, that the leader was considered The King of New Orleans. This was enforced with the help of a hitman, who used 2 guns, at once, and appeared in rap videos.

This week, we check out the life of a man, who has had some ups and downs, to say the least.

#316 - The Finger Of Doom - The Sanctifiedness of John Hopoate

This week, we look at a guy who was so rough in Rugby, that he ended up having to become a boxer, in the middle of his career. He fought, threw cheap shots, and even used his fingers for purposes that certainly aren't legal, in any sport. He also consorted with alleged drug dealers, beat people outside of bars, and had quite an interesting trip to the local grocery store. But that's just the *finger*tip of the iceberg, as this man has done enough crazy things for several lives, including having 11 children! Have all your kids be rugby stars, switch from one violent professional sport to another, and be able to intimidate your opponents with only a single finger with John Hopoate!!

#315 - Dogs & Dragonflies - The Blessedness of Aqib Talib

This week, we look over the career & crazy times of a man who saw nothing but success in the NFL. An all pro, super bowl champion & apparent hang out buddy of Peyton Manning. Off the field, it's getting so drunk that you can't remember punching a cab driver, as he drove 75 mph on the interstate, or gun play in a strip club parking lot, or teaming with your mother to try to shoot your sister's boyfriend. Things like that. It's fighting with teammates, during your first 5 minutes in the NFL. He does all of this, and more, but in such an entertaining way that it's still hard not to like the guy! Grow up, hating your hometown of Cleveland, get to know your pals, Tom Brady & Peyton Manning, and pistol whip your problems away with Aqib Talib!!

#313 - Weaponized Cookies & Rollover Crashes - The Egocentricness of Jason Kidd

This week, we look at hall of fame player, who was the best at what he did, from the second he stepped on to a basketball court. The world bent over backwards to show him love, and let him off the hook, at every turn. He had a very public marriage, even hosting a TV show, with his wife. But under the surface, there was allegations of a decade of abuse, with implements of violence ranging all the way from a baseball bat, to a large cookie. In addition, he is a TERRIBLE driver, especially when he's had "a few" drinks! It's the story of a guy, who people just don't seem to like, no matter how much he accomplishes, or how many apologies he makes! Leave your friends at the scene of an accident that you caused, blame your son for your wife's fat lip, and have everyone generally roll their eyes at you with Jason Kidd!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

But as soon as he was in the NFL, he was also in the back of a lot police cars. Whether trolling the streets, in the middle of the night, for a ladies, and possibly crack cocaine, or sexually attacking a teammate's wife, or the babysitter this guy just doesn't understand that actions just may have consequences!

#311 - Orgasm & Obsession - The Compellingness of Adonis "Superman" Stevenson

This week, we tell the odd story of a man, who came to another country, as a small child, grew up in foster care, and ran the streets, putting himself in all kinds of dangerous situations. Luckily, he ended up a champion boxer, with an exciting, crowd pleasing style, and a growing fan base. So... What's the problem, right? Well, there was a whole lot about his past, that people weren't aware of. Like doing time in prison, for absolutely horrific, and downright disgusting crimes!

Finally, his career is ended by a series of punches that puts him in a coma, and makes his survival anything but assured!
