In my opinion its either the Pete Rose betting
scandal or the Tim Donaghy NBA officiating
scandal. Anything that forces fans as well as
players to question the integrity of the game is
the worst possible scenario. It also forces you
to wonder how many other managers or referees
did the same thing and didn’t get caught.

I had no problem with the class of 2012 getting
snubbed for alleged drug use. Nice statement by
the voters but eventually those who put up Hall of
Fame numbers will need their own wing or an

I’m not sure I would include Sosa but Bond and Clemons
Are certainly among the all-time greats and both were well
on their way before they used PED’s. Plus so many of their
peers were juiced as well and MLB didn’t do anything to prevent
the use of PED’s.

College athletes should get a monthly stipend and it could be
based on need. General students receive grants and loans based
on need. Many of these athletes generate millions of dollars for
their respective schools. Many also come from very deprived

Its not just athletes. Any one that has achieved celebrity for
Accomplishing something or having a certain talent or ability
Is always just a notorious deed or act away from being only
remembered for that. Richard Nixon and Watergate is the
perfect example.

It would depend on the overall affect. If the drugs weren’t
dangerous and didn’t artificially provide ability, I wouldn’t
have a problem with it.

I believe it was Penn State because nothing Jerry Sandusky did
gave Penn State a competitive advantage. He retired in 1998 and
had no connection with the football program. This should have been
simply a criminal case and the NCAA should have never gotten

Its very difficult to take away anything that already happened. Vacating
Wins, removing records etc simply doesn’t erase what has already happened.
Especially in a team sport.

Suspensions and reinstatements can only be judged on a case by case

It is an extremely clean program with one of the greatest graduation rates in
history. This was a pattern of criminal behavior by a sick and demented individual.
The program is and was very clean.

Flashback: SMU gets NCAA 'death penalty'; Worse than Penn State?

Flashback: SMU gets NCAA 'death penalty'; Worse than Penn State? | Teams Involved with Scandals-Aspect 3 |

The sanctions eliminate football for 1987 and limit the university to seven "away' games in 1988, with only 15 initial grant-in-aid scholarships. The university will not be allowed to make live television appearances in 1988 or take part in post-season play after that season. The university, already in the second year of a three-year probation, had its probation extended until 1990. The athletic program will have to conduct annual audits of football players during the probationary period to ensure the players can meet their financial obligations without improper assistance. SMU will be limited to one head coach and no more than five full-time assistants, four less than the NCAA maximum, until Aug. 1, 1989.

A slush fund was created with booster money for 13 players to receive cash payouts every month. When investigators calculated the total amount that had been paid out, they were stunned as it soared past the $60,000 mark.
Athletic Director Bob Hitch, head coach Bobby Collins and assistant coach Henry Lee Parker were all forced to resign during the scandal, but SMU offered them their remaining contract earnings in full (a total of about $850,000) if they remained silent on the matter. They did, and the NCAA was not amused. Infuriated at the full-scale stonewalling that continues to this day, they passed down their first "Death Penalty" punishment on February 25, 1987. The entire 1987 SMU football season was cancelled, as well as every 1988 SMU home game. SMU would later elect to cancel the remaining road games, citing an inability to field a competitive team. Also, scores of scholarships were eliminated. It wouldn’t be until 1992 that SMU got their full allotment back.

The alma mater of such football legends as Doak Walker, Don Meredith and Eric Dickerson, SMU was relegated to the dregs of college football and remains a thousand miles from its former days as a national championship contender.
The "Death Penalty" punishment, the harshest and most far-reaching NCAA sanctions of any football program in collegiate history, was never used by them again, despite a handful of opportunities. This led one university president to compare it to the atomic bomb, noting that only upon its release did we see its sweeping consequences. Nicknamed "Ponygate," this scandal has served as a terrible warning for would-be tricksters across college football’s major conferences, reminding them all that their final days among the football elite are only a few ill-conceived payouts away.

A cartel of gamblers and a handful of players teamed up to ensure that the heavily favored Sox lost the most hallowed of all sports championships to the underdog Cincinnati Reds. First baseman Chick Gandil led the fix, getting starting pitchers Eddie Cicotte and Lefty Williams on board, along with several others. But the gamblers failed to pony up the money in time as incredibly heavy betting swung the odds until the Reds were 5 to 1 favorites. Tricked, the players turned bitter as the public grew suspicious.
The Sox would go on to lose the Series and eventually found themselves indicted on fraud and gambling charges. But in true Chicago fashion, a highly dubious trial—one featuring the theft of player confessions—led to "not guilty" verdicts all around. Disregarding the suspect ruling,

A chronological look at a timeline of key events during Ohio State's football scandal.
Grant Grasha's comment, March 17, 2013 10:10 PM
Jim Tressel is aware that 5 of his Ohio State Buckeye players were selling their winnings 8 months before officials at the school knew about it. Tressel was made aware of these actions from OSU walk-on and local attorney Christopher Cicero emailed him. Tressel said he kept the information to himself to protect the confidentiality of a federal investigation and the safety of the players involved.Tressel was fined $250,000 and suspended for 2 games of the 2011 season. Later he asked the school to suspend him the equal ammount of time as his players.

senior quarterback Terrelle Pryor has announced his intention to skip his senior sesaon at Ohio State and request to enter the NFL supplemental draft. Pryor appologizes to Tressel in a press confrenece for getting him fired from his head coaching job. The NCAA vacated all of the 12 wins the buckeyes had in the 2010-2011, including the Sugar Bowl against Arkansas. Along with a 2 year probation on its football program.
