Worst Sports Moment
 
What is your worst sports moment in any sport??

For me. Its tied between Bartman and the Rangers collapse in the 2011 Series.

Greg Norman at Augusta in 96
Mike Tyson's bite

two that come to mind

Probably Monica Seles taking a stabbing mid-match.

Dale Earnhardt being killed during the Daytona 500. I didn't see it live, but when that happens to the legend of your sport, that's more than a tragedy.

In the same vain, Dan Wheldon's death a few years ago in Las Vegas.

Can't argue with this. At all.

And in the same category, Imola 1994. The darkest weekend in F1 history...

2004 alcs.

Dr John Carlson 02-18-2013 08:52 AM

Tom Watson losing the 2009 British Open

KaylaJ 02-18-2013 09:19 AM

Hank Gathers dying- I was young and I guess it was the first time I realized something like that could happen. Plus watching him fall the way he did over and over as they replayed it.


Magic announcing he had Aids and Mario Lemieux saying he had cancer- cause back then you just expected the worst

Worst thing I ever saw on the field of play.

[I'm sure the topic's been done to death here, over the years, but]
the Bertuzzi assault is up there, too---

I also think that the fact that he only sat out 20 games for that savagery qualifies as arguably the worst miscarriage of sports-justice in the history of the Four Major Sports...

Panteras 02-18-2013 12:04 PM

so many soccer players dying in the field during games of heart problems Foe, Feher, Puerta, Jarque etc...also Cherepanov comes to mind in hockey

and of course the Lokomotiv plain crash

And all those stadium disasters as well.

Hillsborough

The Ibrox disaster in the 70s (before my time)

Accra Sports Stadium in Africa in the early 2000s

And sadly many more.

The Bradford team are wearing special training gear at the League Cup final in memory of the Bradford Stadium Fire that killed 56 back in 85.

Vamos Rafa 02-20-2013 03:02 PM

Racist taunts

Schalkenullvier* 02-27-2013 10:44 AM

obvious catastrophes that cost lifes aside...

the 2000 and 2001 final Bundesliga matchdays.

Jussi 02-27-2013 01:20 PM

Italia '90

Ceremony 02-27-2013 01:57 PM

2002 Austrian Grand Prix

Hesher 03-03-2013 11:14 AM

Our collapse in the bronze medal game at the Vancouver olympics and Man City winning the title in the last minute last season.

worstfaceoffmanever 03-03-2013 11:41 AM

Without a doubt...


DaveG 03-03-2013 02:35 PM

That I've seen: Reggie Lewis's collapsing during an NBA playoff game against Charlotte, suffering from the same heart problem that would take his life a few months later.

In what sense? not criticizing I'm actually curious.

kihei 03-03-2013 04:40 PM

The massacre of the Israeli athletes at the '72 Munich Olympics comes to mind as well

Riverdale 03-06-2013 03:38 PM

Duk Koo Kim's death

PanthersPens62 03-06-2013 04:46 PM

As a loyal alum of the notorius U...has to be "Hail Flutie":cry:


ChiGuySez 03-08-2013 08:48 AM

Great examples posted here but Id have to go with Lokomotiv Yaroslavl. While distantly removed from NA, its ultimately tragic when you lose the entire team and staff.

As far as worst moments as a FAN:
