This week, we check out a man who played a sport we know nothing about, rugby.  That said, we skip most of the sports, and dive directly into crime.  He tried to make a little extra money, doing some dirty things, and got caught.  In Thailand.  With a LOT of heroin. This leads to a long stint in a nightmarish Thai prison, which causes him even bigger troubles. Listen to it all unravel!   Play two professional sports, hang out with your crime boss brother-in-law, and wind up doing extra hard time in a Thai prison with Paul Hayward!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder
This week, we look at a very successful person, who never seemed like they'd turn out to be so successful.  He was a six time NBA champion, who played next to the great of all time.  He also spent money in dumb ways, drove a little tipsy, was a little careless with guns, and the police know the address where he and his reality show star wife lived.  Not to mention, more lawsuits than you could shake a stick at, including one that names a 5 year old girl as a target.  What a mess!   Grow tall after most people are done growing, win everything you could possibly win, and still be thought of as mainly a sidekick with Scottie Pippen!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder
This week, we go back in time to look at man who had it rough.  He had over 100 boxing matches, back before we even knew what CTE was, the 1920's/1930's.  This all resulted in bizarre behavior, culminating with a jealous outburst at both his mistress... and her mother.  He admits to the crime, but will his diminished capacities keep him from hanging in London's gallows? This is a wild & crazy ride through history!!   Go to the bathroom in a freezing hole in the ground, fight so much that you barely know where you are, and shoot to kill with Del Fontaine!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder
This week, we look into a man who makes it REALLY hard to like him.  His first, second, and third responses are all the same, violence. He attacks people in public, in bars, and worst of all, in their own homes.  All the signs were there, but the world wasn't sure just how awful of a human being he is, until he commits an act so heinous, that he may never get out of prison!   Screw up every opportunity that you get, make sure to say all of your craziest thoughts in public, and never, ever show any mercy with War Machine!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder
This week, we jump into the deep end of a murky pool.  A man who was raised to be a champion, from the time he was in diapers.  He was on a clear path to a gold medal when tragedy struck, and he was severely injured in a car accident.  His remarkable comeback, all the way to the Olympics was nothing short of amazing, but he quickly threw it all away.  In the end, people are killed, and so is a legend!   Work your way back from horrific injuries, throw it all away with booze & pills, then live with the tragic results with Bruce "The Comeback Kid" Kimball!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder
This week, we take a look at a guy whoo seems to have been getting arrested since birth.  From high school, and beyond, he developed a pattern of having no regard for rules, the law, or other human beings, then having people get him out of trouble.  He continues this pattern, until he meets his future wife, soccer star, Hope Solo. She seems to fit right into his lifestyle, as they end up entangled with police, as a couple, on more than one occasion, in addition to having her own problems with the law!  This is a 2 for 1 episode & it's wall to wall crime & mess!!   Send people nasty emails after they have sex with you, never listen to authority, and go right from jail to your wedding with Jerramy Stevens & Hope Solo!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder
This week, we bodyslam our way through the story of a man who defines the term "wasted potential". No one in wrestling history has been given more chances to be employed, or screwed those chances up quite so badly.  He did plenty of drugs, fought cops in bar parking lots, and that's only the beginning. Tales of his debauchery are legendary. Some are hilarious, and some are downright criminal. He is a unique kind of disaster!   Have sex with your cousin, snort your way out of every job you get, and never learn from your mistakes with Marty Jannetty!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder
This week, we check out a nearly forgotten baseball player, who was once the catalyst behind a team that went to the World Series, but just a few short years later, he was out of the sport, all together.  Why?  Cocaine, and plenty of it. Also, he had quite the attitude, causing fights with everyone from friends, to teammates, to his team's manager. His post-baseball life was sad one, complete with a penthouse apartment, specifically for shooting heroin.  This is a wild tale!   Live your childhood sports dream, choke your team's manager, and do every drug you can get you hands on, in any way you can with Alan Wiggins!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder
This week, we talk about a man who somehow went from dropping out of high school, to the NBA in a matter of a few years.  He sold crack, and ran the streets but always kept his basketball dreams alive, and eventually it paid off, at least in money.  But he has been full of problems like being belligerent to cops, drinking to excess, getting robbed, committing a burglary, and a whole lot in between.  He leaves you with only one question... WHY??   Drop out of high school, be intimidated by Charles Barkley, and always do the stupidest thing with Steve "The Franchise" Francis!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder
This week, we take an extra long look into one of the strangest stories that we've had in all 200 episodes.  A boxer, a large, redheaded man called "Elvis", drugs, a threatened quadriplegic, guns, murder... This story has it all.  When a boxer feels he is wronged by his slimy manager/promoter, he takes matters into his own hands.  Was it justified, or just a brain damaged delusion? Find out!   Spike up your hair, take your vitamins, and kill Elvis with Tim "Doc" Anderson!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder
This week, we follow the trail of a man who has been living on the edge for 40 years. A star NFL player, from a tiny school, that ends up setting the single season sack record.  He also started a Studio 54 brawl, went out with movie stars & models, had a crazy mustache, and got arrested.  A lot.  Court orders mean nothing, and people who don't want to be slapped around, mean even less.  Can he turn it around to something positive, or will his story end sadly??   Dance your best sack dance, impregnate Stallone's ex, and get used to Rikers Island with Mark Gastineau!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder
This week, we look at a man who was obsessed with looking good.  He even tried to make a career of bodybuilding, but ended up selling steroids, getting involved in love triangles, and plotting murders. Just when police are closing in on him, he disappears. Seemingly gone for good, but actually living in a another country, and under an assumed name.  Will he just quietly hide out, or brashly make his presence known, and participate in more horrific murder??    Fill yourself full of steroids, hide out in a foreign nation, and continue your killing spree with David Bieber!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder
This week, we check out a fighter, with fierce reputation, in the ring, and a less than stellar reputation, outside of it. He came from a less than ideal background to make it to the top level of MMA, but little things, like pesky arrests kept getting in the way. From his history, let's just say that he seems to have a slight problem with women, and leave it at that. Bruised girlfriends, and flying yogas mats are his specialty.  But will that lose him his job, or will it be pushed aside?   Make up your own nickname, knock people out in less than a minute, and never stand for unauthorized yoga, in your area with Anthony "Rumble"Johnson!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder
This week, we look into a man who always used violence as a first resort.  He was a football mainstay due almost entirely to his force of will, and the sheer terror that he inflicted on his opponents. On the streets, he seemed to approach life the same way, and when you get up in the sky, he's even more aggressive.  Luckily for him, he turned this image into a pretty healthy movie career, becoming a familiar face, all over the world.  It's Vinnie Jones!! Also... THE SCUMMIE AWARDS!!   Strike fear in all who cross you, grab people in terrible places, and be an X-Men villain with Vinnie Jones!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder
This week, we celebrate our 4th anniversary, and head down the road with a man who certainly shouldn't be driving.  He fought his way from community college, to a big time program, to being an NBA All-Star, seemingly using nothing but will, and determination. Unfortunately, he didn't seem to have the determination to not get arrested.  His actions escalated, until a seemingly inevitable tragedy takes place.  Will he ever learn his lesson?   Fight your way to the NBA all-star game, get very stoned before every game, and always drink as much as possible before you drive with Mookie Blaylock!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder
This week, we find out about a man who lived his childhood dream, making it to the major leagues, and even on to his lifelong favorite team.  His baseball career fizzled out, but after a couple bumps in the road, he pulls his life together, and even does good for the community. That is, until shocking, and horrifying charges are leveled against him, and nobody thinks he's such a great guy anymore! This one is insane!!   Work your whole life to achieve a goal, then achieve that goal, and make sure to throw it all today with some of the worst charges you could have with Rusty Torres!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder
This week, we try not to blink because we would miss this shooting hockey star, and his unraveling life.  A Canadian kid, achieving his goal by making it all the way to the NHL, and serving as the resident goon, beating up anyone in his path. The problem is when you have a propensity for violence, and you mix it with a cocaine addiction, and an enormous amount of steroids, you get a whole lot of insane things happening, in a very short amount of time!   Skate around with the Stanley Cup, never meet a person that you don't want to punch, and make sure to take your steroids with John Kordic!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder
This week, we check out the life of one of the richest, most successful athletes in the world.  Unfortunately for world, and especially for the women in his life, he is an absolute jerk, in every sense of the word.  From jealous rages, to controlling people with his money, and lashing out at home owner's association security guards, bouncers, jail guards, or anybody who happens to be around, this guy never misses an opportunity to disappoint!!   Be an undefeated champion, own a fleet of the world's most expensive cars, and make sure to never treat others like human beings with "Pretty Boy" Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder
This week, we explore the life, and considerable screw ups of a man who was a national champion in college, and played in three Super Bowls, only to be overshadowed by a slew of almost innumerable run ins with police. He is apparently a terrible driver, and he makes it even worse by never having a license. What he does have, is a lot of cocaine, and several women with orders of protection against him for his insane behavior!    Play in multiple Super Bowls, but never win one, always test positive for cocaine, and always know that a restraining order is just a piece of paper with Clarence Kay!!   Check us out, every Tuesday!   We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!    Hosted by James Pietragallo & Jimmie Whisman    Donate at... patreon.com/crimeinsports or with paypal.com using our email: crimeinsports@gmail.com    Get all the CIS & STM merch at crimeinsports.threadless.com    Go to shutupandgivememurder.com for all things CIS & STM!!    Contact us on... twitter.com/crimeinsports  crimeinsports@gmail.com  facebook.com/Crimeinsports  instagram.com/smalltownmurder##191 -
