Brian Tuohy, Author of Larceny Games and The Fix Is In, on Corruption in the Major Sport Leagues
Author Brian Tuohy joined Stephen to talk about his new book, Larceny Games. It is based on over 400 FBI files and numerous interviews with FBI Agents, sports gamblers and bookmakers. Brian will be discussing the world of sports entertainment and how it is not a pure as most fans envision. Professional leagues have argued in court that they are entertainment, not a sport and if they are entertainment, the pro leagues must make sure the product is entertaining with the right actors in the show, right? Sport is the purest form of competition and elite performance, right?
Brian will break it all down and share his thoughts on events that have taken place in recent times that will challenge your viewpoints on the role of sport in our society.
