Worst Mistakes in Sports History

 

Although sports betting fans like to hear about amazing records and incredible plays, there are also some moments where no matter how good an athlete is, they are all humans ad they all make mistakes. When these mistakes happen, no matter what the NFL Odds are or who will be playing on the major league all star game, all that matters is how the person making the mistake could be so naive and let it happen. Here is a small review of some of the worst mistakes in the sports history:

 

O.J Simpson: Orenthal James Simpson AKA “The Juice” was born on July 9th, 1947 and was the first NFL player to rush more than 2000 yards in only one season. During his NFL career he played for the Buffalo Bills and the San Francisco 49ers. O.J Simpson also had a well known career as an actor and broadcaster. In 1995, O.J Simpson became even more famous when he was acquitted of the murder of his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman. By September 2007, Simpson was facing several legal troubles: numerous felonies include robbery, burglary, and assault, all with a deadly weapon, first-degree kidnapping with use of a deadly weapon (possible life sentence), coercion with use of a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery, conspiracy to commit kidnapping, and conspiracy to commit a crime.

 

Michael Vick: Born in July 26th, 1980, Michael Vick was both the first overall pick and first African American quarterback taken number 1 in the NFL Draft. After this, he had a prominent contract as a quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons but now, this, once very promising NFL star faces a maximum 10 year state prison term for felony charges for his role in the dog fighting ring and related gambling activity.

 

Mike Tyson: Nicknamed “Iron Mike,” and “The Baddest Man on the Planet”, Michael Gerard Tyson was the undisputed heavyweight champion as well as the youngest man ever to win and lose a world heavyweight title. He made two very tragic mistakes during his boxing career: In 1992, Mike Tyson was convicted for raping Miss Black Rhode Island, Desree Washington, for which he served three years in prison. After paying his time he came back to the ring to pick up his career. On June 28th, 1997 during a boxing match against Evander Holyfield, Tyson was disqualified after he bit off a portion of Holyfield‘s ear, later found on the ring’s floor.

 

Ray Lewis: Ray Anthony Lewis was born on May 15th, 1975 and at this moment holds the title of the first NFL linebacker to win the Super Bowl MVP Award since 1971, playing for the Baltimore Ravens. His mistake: During a Super Bowl party on January 31st, 2000 a fight broke out and Jacinth Baker, 21, and Richard Lollar, 24, died from stab wounds. During the questioning at the Atlanta Police Station, Lewis lied to investigators by saying he didn’t know the other two suspects (Reginald Oakley and Joseph Sweeting) but the Limo driver set the record straight. Later, Lewis pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of justice as a plea bargain for him testifying against Oakley and Sweeting. He was sentenced to one year probation. Ray Lewis was not suspended from the NFL but was fined $250 000.
