What started as a good, well written book ended with something that really sounded like the paranoid ramblings of someone who is quite convinced that the whole sports world is nothing but a sham.

Nov 24, Jake rated it really liked it. Sadly, we still WANT our heroes so not mush will change in big time sports. Personally, I will believe it was plucky courage that our troops rallied to defeat the greater foe and that is what keeps my heart bumping Kelly green blood. Brian’s research efforts and creative writing skills are masterful and second to none. Professional sports in America: I think the author overdoes it a bit in this book.

Some interesting history of game fixing, but main premise that all pro sports are fixed is based on a pretty flimsy argument where author confuses what is unlikely with what must be fixed. This book clearly shows the improper intimate relationship brain the Patriots with the NFL. However, Tuohy makes an extremely compelling case based on known facts, psychology and, more importantly, economics.
Not a “conspiracy theory” book but more a list of “here are the facts and what if” book. Lists with This Book. Want to Read saving…. Tuohy is a celebrity in his own right, and I’m confident Brian will one day be in the national spotlight for blowing the lid off all things sports by leaving no doubt once and for all that sports are nothing more than scripted entertainment for the masses. Thanks for telling us ifx the tuoyy.
