Professional sports in America: it’s all about fair play and the goal of winning championships. At least that’s the spin. But could it be a massive showbiz operation filled with greedy owners, crooked referees, and coddled players, all with the unstated goal of grabbing as much money as possible?
Author Brian Tuohy provides a full-sourced saga of the corruption that has infected the storied histories of the NBA, MLB, NFL, NHL, and NASCAR.
With reality obscured by a complacent and often complicit sports media, The Fix Is In shines a light on a hidden history of clandestine arrangements between television networks and sports leagues, all against a background of drinking, drugging, and crime.
Finally, here’s a book that unflinchingly examines the sordid underbelly of the American sports industry.
Brian Tuohy maintains the website thefixisin.net and is a frequent contributor to the CBS Sports website bleacherreport.com, where he chronicles sports scandals and conspiracies as the stories break. Brian has been interviewed by The New York Times, ESPN, Fox Sports, and The Power Hour radio program.
The Fix Is In
This book really makes you think about some of those bad calls, non-calls and misconduct off the field that always seems to 'go away". Facts are re-visited with a slightly paranoid logic. This book has some very interesting perspectives on some old and recent moments in sports. Its obvious that the sports industry is all about making money so much of what is suggested really isnt that far fetched.
