An entertaining and informative look at the greatest sporting scandals the world has seen. From on-field drama to infamous sex romps by the big stars or out-and-out corruption, this book looks at controversies throughout the globe over the past one hundred years. From the Boston Red Sox scandal in 1919 to Lance Armstrong's current troubles with the Tour de France, the beauty of this book is that it crosses continents, sports and eras. Sports covered include soccer (England captain John Terry sacked for sleeping with a team-mate's wife); cricket (Shane Warne controversies; World Series breakaway); horse racing (Fine Cotton ring in; Shergar kidnapped); rugby league (ear bitten off in the 1940s); golf (Tiger Woods self-destructs); tennis (Rod Laver turns professional); athletics (Hitler snubs Jesse Owens; Marion Jones stripped of her medals); boxing (Cassius Clay refuses to serve in the Vietnam War; Mike Tyson bites ear of opponent); and various Olympic scandals (Dawn Fraser, Ben Johnson, Munich, Salt Lake Winter Olympics bribery ...).
