#045 - Everything But A Killer - The Ceaselessness of Alvin Robertson  

This week, we take in a hearty helping of criminal activities, with a man who was has a lot of experience both on the court, and in the courtroom. His career was just a distraction for his real passion, getting arrested. His crimes range from stupid, to hilarious, to just plain scary. Ex-girlfriends, wives, night club employees, naked prostitutes, and high level team employees... None of them were exempt from his rages, and aggressive behavior. It's a ride on the crazy train, from start to finish, just like we like it! Violate the terms of your probation, kick in a door, and set the place on fire with Alvin Robertson!!

#044 - Murder, Mayhem & Maple Syrup - The Cluelessness of Brian Spencer  

This week, we explore a story filled with wall to wall crime, and crazy. He played with reckless abandon, and lived with even less care. A kid from the back woods makes it big in the NHL, and somehow ends up living in a dingy trailer, on a swamp, with a prostitute, a nasty crack habit, and facing the electric chair for kidnapping, and murder. If you think that's wild, wait until you hear about his father. It's a tale of insanity, from start to finish! Fire up a big crack rock, build a truck out of an airplane, and kidnap a small time gangster with Brian "Spinner" Spencer!! Check us out, every Tuesday.

#043 - A Murderous Gentleman - The Selfishness Of Chris Adams  

This week, we are bursting with crime, madness, general mayhem, as we discuss a man that couldn't help but give in to his demons. No good time was good enough for him to not end in violence. His crimes were almost always fueled by alcohol, and drugs, and their severity only got worse with his appetites. Let's just say that he didn't quite live up to his nickname of "Gentleman". He went from a promising life, at the top of his profession, to the depths of darkness, and depravity. So far, that not even his proper English accent could save him. You know, the kind of person we like to cover! Climb up to the top rope, drink until you don't remember your name, then attack the nearest human being with "Gentleman" Chris Adams Check us out, every Tuesday.

#042 - All Of The Intent, None of The Remorse - The Heartlessness of Russell Erxleben  

This week, we check out a tale of lies, manipulation, and woe that leads a man from being a first round NFL draft pick, to being a regular resident of federal prison, leaving behind a mountain of victims, and shattered lives. His ego is huge, his crimes are monumental. It's a story that keeps taking weirder, and weirder turns, and eventually involves Hitler, ex-US Supreme Court Nominee Harriet Miers, a famous piece of art, and even a US president. So much failure. So much destruction. So much fun!! Puff up your ego, miss a game winning field goal, and ruin the lives of hundreds with Russell Erxleben !! Check us out, every Tuesday.

#041 - Murder Is A Strange Thank You - The Despicableness of James Butler  

This week, we explore a dark tale of violence, betrayal, and most of all, irony. A rough childhood, plus lousy impulse control, and a heaping helping of mental illness, equals a boxer who was too crazy for the ring. Unfortunately for the rest of the world, he wasn't exactly a superstar of regular society, either. His final crime is one of the most horrible, and deplorable things we've ever talked about. He's a bad guy, and we have a rip roarin' time, tearing the whole situation to shreds. It's a wild ride!

#040 - Would You Kill For A Pizza? - The Homelessness of Darrell Allums  

This week, we take a look at a man who was as much of a failure on the basketball court as he was in life. His career was short, but that just left him more time to pursue other activities, such as finding crack, smoking crack, then finding ways to get more crack. He was a menace to any polite society, especially the poor pizza delivery men of Los Angeles. It's sad, twisted, sordid tale of human disaster. In other words, he's right up our alley. Get cut by your team, grab a screwdriver, and steal anything that isn't bolted down with Darrell Allums!! Check us out, every Tuesday.

#039 - The Conscience Of A Killer - The Scariness of Lee Murray  

This week, we are up to our eyes in crime, mayhem, and overall craziness. Our subject was a fighter, in every way possible. From the UFC, to being stabbed in bar brawls. He was a troubled kid, turned major underworld figure, with a record that ranges from simple loitering, to extreme violence, to masterminding the largest crime of its kind, in the history of the world. A character, a lunatic, and generally one of the most dangerous people that we've ever encountered in the Crime In Sports world. Buckle up, because this one is jam packed! Hop out of the octagon, gather up your heist crew, and beat up 9 people at time with "Lightning" Lee Murray!! Check us out, every Tuesday.

#038 - A Symphony of Self Destruction - The Carelessness of Stanley Wilson  

This week, we take a stroll down the path of complete human disaster with a man who let his love of cocaine, and cocaine related idiocy destroy every one of his many opportunities for success. He took the chance to be a Super Bowl hero, and flushed it directly down the toilet, then things somehow got worse... His needs took him down a sad, sordid trail of living in his car, bagging groceries, and crime, that culminates in a lengthy sentence. Stay tuned for the end of the episode to hear what his son, Stanley Jr has done in recent months. Let's just say that the fun definitely doesn't skip a generation. It's a father-son extravaganza of athlete crime! Blow off the Super Bowl, find yourself some cocaine, and lock yourself in the bathroom with Stanley Wilson!! Check us out, every Tuesday.

#037 - How Many Bodies In The Ocean? - The Needlessness of John Paul Sr.  

This week, delve deep into a story unlike any other we've done. Sure, his crimes are just as vicious, and definitely just as stupid, but more than anyone else, he didn't have to do any of it. He was an immigrant, from a war torn country, that earned a graduate's degree from Harvard, and millions of dollars, only to have his life devolve into a mess of drug smuggling, running from the law, shooting witnesses, running from the law some more, getting quickie divorces in Haiti, while under suspicion of killing his wife, and ill fated prison escape attempts. You know, the normal life of mathematical genius, race car driver. This episode is jam packed with crime, and has the most interesting ending of any story that we've ever done. A description could never do it justice. Fire up your engine, load up the drugs, and push your spouse overboard with John Paul Sr!! Check us out, every Tuesday.

#036 - Which Father To Kill? - The Haziness of Mike Danton  

This week, we find ourselves in an avalanche of craziness. The story has so many twists, and turns that it's sometimes difficult to figure out where to direct our scorn. An NHL player's murder for hire plot gone wrong, amongst a backdrop of mental illness, abuse, and a relationship between a hockey player, and his coach/agent that falls somewhere between life partners, and cult leader/follower. It's a wild story, chock full of terrible people. We couldn't be more thrilled. Grab your stick, hit the ice, and ask a girl named Katie to find you a hit man with Mike Danton!!

#035 - Murderers Are More Honest - The  Untrustworthiness of Denny Mclain  

This week, we have an extra long episode, full of extra crime, and stupidity, featuring a man that has been weaving in, and out of legal troubles for five decades. He goes from having one of the best seasons in baseball history, to decades of scandal, and prison, for things like bookmaking, cocaine distribution, extortion, money laundering, fugitive smuggling, and much more, including a Secret Service investigation into his involvement with, and cheating of, some of the biggest names in the mafia, including the Gottis. He's led a life of pure disaster, and we bring it to you for your pleasure. It's a sordid tale of one man, screwing up his life, and the lives of many, many others, as much as one man possibly could. Fire up your plane, tune up the ol' organ, and screw up your life like nobody in history with Denny Mclain!! Check us out, every Tuesday.

#034 - Money, Fame & Dead Ballerinas - The Tirelessness of Carlos Monzon  

This week, we take a gander at a champion, movie star, hero to millions in his country... And violent lunatic. He went from utter poverty, to reaching god-like status, with his violence going unchecked. No one was safe from his wrath, including photographers at Christmas parties, people who want nothing more than to eat pizza, fellow bus passengers, construction workers who try to negotiate the price of a car, and most of all his wives. His constant abuse eventually got him shot, and one of his wives dead. He's a real peach of guy, and we have a blast taking apart his twisted, tragic mess of a life. This man epitomizes what Crime In Sports is all about. Jump into your trunks, smoke 5 packs of cigarettes, and punch the nearest human being with Carlos Monzon!! Check us out, every Tuesday.

#033 - So Many Bodies, So Little Prison - The Brazenness of Ion Croitoru  

This week, we look at possibly the biggest lunatic that we've ever had the pleasure of researching. Don't let his past as a mediocre professional wrestler fool you, his real career was drug trafficking, extortion, violence, murder, the bombing of a police station, and possibly being the greatest used Jeep salesman in the history of North America. This episode is chock full of murderous, revenge seeking bikers, weak prison sentences, and absolute lunacy. Take off your shirt, visit the ol' bomb fridge, and conspire to kill dozens with Ion "Johnny K-9" Croitoru!! Check us out, every Tuesday.

#032 - The Miniature Teflon Monster - The Repetitiveness of Dave Meggett  

This week, we have wall to wall crime, as we discuss a most horrid individual. A man who went from the highs of being a Super Bowl champion, to the lows of working the overnight shift in a small town gas station, repeated arrests for the most terrible of crimes, selling his championship ring on eBay, and finally earning a prison sentence that won't have him free for decades. This episode is so jam packed with crimes, you will be amazed that a person could be free long enough to commit all of them. It's as crazy an episode as we've had, on one of the worst people. Return a punt for a touchdown, have a ridiculous amount of children, with a ridiculous amount of people, and force yourself on anyone within reach with Dave Meggett!! Check us out, every Tuesday.

#031 - Worse Problems Than Prison - The Nastiness of Sly Williams  

This week, we peek into the world of a man who had more than his fair share of what he called "personal problems". These problems overtook a once promising NBA career, and sent him to much less glamorous places, such as Binghamton, NY, and prison. Find out why he would flee from a hospital with a gaping stab wound in his neck, or why he just couldn't seem to ever be anywhere that he was supposed to be, when he was supposed to be there. Or, most importantly, why couldn't he stop committing horribly repugnant, and violent crimes!! Skip out on practice, call a press conference, and do horrid things to those who are closest to you with Sylvester "Sly" Williams!! Check us out, every Tuesday.

#030 - The World's Most Graceful Predator  - The Sleaziness of Wolfgang Scwarz  

This week, we look at an Olympic gold medalist, and world class human garbage pile. He went from being one of his country's biggest heros, to being known for his heinous crimes, including the international smuggling of women, and putting together plots to kidnap billionaire's daughters for ransom. Just when you think he can't be any worse of a person, he becomes friends with some even worse people, while serving time for his awful acts, forming maybe the most horrible little gang in history. He's crazy. He's evil. And he is a complete idiot. Slip on your bedazzled leotard, leap into the air, and hope to be judged kindly with Wolfgang Scwarz!! Check us out, every Tuesday.

#029 - Murder for Boots - The Shortsightedness of Eric Naposki  

This week, we tackle a story that is more twisted than a pretzel. What happens when you mix a former NFL player, with the fiancé of wealthy, older businessman? We'll give you a hint... It's not good for the wealthy, older businessman. Join us for a tale of manipulation, tawdry affairs, and cold blooded murder. These are bad people, and we are going to give them what's coming to them. Or, we'll just tell the tale, and mock them for their stupidity, and incredible selfishness. Either way, this story is as fun as they come! Unless you're a wealthy businessman, with a fiancé that is half your age. Lace up your cleats, find a murderous younger partner, and kill a millionaire with Eric Naposki!! Check us out, every Tuesday. We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!

#028 - His Arrogance Killed His Excellence - The Aggressiveness of Marlon King  

This week, we take deep look at a violent, arrogant, aggressive, spoiled man that represents all that we loathe about criminal athletes. His prowess as a serial assaulter, and complete moron far overshadow his impressive gifts on the soccer field. He boasts a string of arrests, starting from the age of 17 that announce his presence as a true danger to not only teammates, and any women he may lay eyes on, but to the entire civilized world. He is as lethal with a birthday ice cream cone, as he is with his fists, and head, as well as being a master at throwing it all away. No one is safe from this lunatic. Choke a teammate, punch a stranger, and run as far as away as you can from Marlon King!! Check us out, every Tuesday. We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!

#027 - Didn't Die Soon Enough - The Atrociousness of Tony Ayala Jr  

This week, we take a long, hard look at one of the most irredeemable, horrid, quasi-human beings that we've ever covered. He was a prodigy in the boxing ring, as well in the legal system. From his struggles with substances, to his much bigger struggles with not entering women's homes, in the middle of the night, he proved himself to be unfit for any society on earth. No matter how many horrors he perpetrated, there was always a line of people dying to clean up his mess. Jab a needle into your arm, sneak in through the kitchen window, and climb into the ring, with Tony Ayala Jr!! Check us out, every Tuesday.

#026 - Crack Gets You Murder Time - The Unluckiness of Willie Mays Aikens  

This week, we take a deep look at a man with an upbringing so horrible, that he could challenge anyone is CIS history. When your mother is a prostitute, and you grow up with no plumbing, the only thing left to do is... Crack. A lot of crack. This is guy who was deemed too crazy, even for Mexico. It's a fun adventure through the the wildness of the sex crazed, coke fueled 1980's, that leads to some not so fun consequences in the 1990's. Hear how a guy can go from a World Series hero, to a target of the federal government. This is a wild one, with an ending that will surprise you!
