The 30 Greatest Sports Conspiracy Theories of All Time : Ranking Sports' Most Notorious Fixes, Cover-Ups, and Scandals
by Elliott Kalb and Mark Weinstein and Cris Collinsworth




Overview -
Separating fact from myth, Kalb attempts to determine which of these long-held conspiracy theories hold water, and which ones fall flat under scrutiny. Ranking the conspiracies from 1 to 30 and the likelihood of each conspiracy from 1 to 5, Kalb boldly asks:
  • Did baseball avoid integration in the 1930s and 1940s with an unwritten agreement?
  • Was Super Bowl III a fixed game?
  • Did Sonny Liston throw both of his fights vs. Muhammad Ali?
  • Was the NBA's first-ever draft lottery fixed?
  • Why did Michael Jordan really retire from basketball the first time?
  • Are some NASCAR race outcomes too good to be true?
  • Did the New England Patriots cheat their way to a dynasty?
  • What really happened at the 1921 Kentucky Derby?
  • Why weren't any Japanese players signed to major league contracts from 1965-1995?
  • And much more
