Professional sports in America: itrs"s all about fair play and the goal of winning championships. At least thatrs"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, herers"s a book that unflinchingly examines the sordid underbelly of the American sports industry.Brian Tuohy maintains the website and is a frequent contributor to the CBS Sports website, 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.
