After staying clean for the back half of his career, LT finishes his 13-year run with the New York Giants. Almost immediately, he finds his way back to drugs and in numerous run-ins with the law.

From 1981-1993, Lawrence Taylor was a star linebacker for the NFL’s New York Giants. It was a legendary career on one of football’s biggest teams—clouded by failed drug tests and endless possession charges.
In 1989, the MLB caught wind that Pete Rose was betting on baseball games as the manager for the Cincinnati Reds. As the truth about him came to light, Rose had a choice: admit to what he'd done, or fight the allegations until the bitter end.
Pete Rose's unrelenting drive on the baseball field earned him the nickname "Charlie Hustle" and a place as one of the sport's all-time greats. But as he racked up hits in a pursuit for Ty Cobb's all-time record, Rose was also racking up significant gambling debts that threatened to destroy his career.
In February 2013, less than a year after the 2012 Olympic Games, Oscar Pistorius would shoot and kill his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, allegedly confusing her for an intruder. The resulting trial was rife with controversy.
Oscar Pistorius captured the hearts of millions while competing in the 2012 Summer Olympic Games, overcoming the doubters he fought over the course of his life. In becoming the first double amputee to compete on the Olympic stage, his story served as an inspiration to people around the world. However, shortly after reaching inconceivable heights, he would become embroiled in an unbelievable scandal.

Gave it a listen. Made it to 9:10 of 1st episode. Just not my type of podcast. It reminds me of Dateline for sports.
