Imagine if the Premier League title race was fixed. Not by corrupt players or match officials in the pay of gambling syndicates, but by an unholy alliance of Premier League executives and club owners keen to heighten the drama, thereby increasing television audiences and revenue. That, in a nutshell, is what Brian Tuohy claims is happening in major sports in the United States. He alleges that those who run Major League Baseball, American football, basketball, ice hockey and even Nascar racing regularly manipulate results.

Tuohy cites many examples where he claims the fix was in. He alleges that Jeff Gordon, driving a car festooned with Pepsi logos, was gifted a win in the Pepsi to please the sponsors, one of numerous Nascar races decided, he claims, via biased scrutineering and dubious deployment of safety cars. He even claims that baseball club owners, financially damaged by the players' strike, approved of their batters bulking up on steroids from then on because they produced more home runs and therefore more excitement, bums on seats and TV earnings.

The trouble is that, while Tuohy's arguments are persuasive, he fails to produce one shred of hard evidence to back up his accusations, which is surprising given the thousands who must have been involved if the various conspiracies did in fact exist. But that's the joy of conspiracy theories: believers say the lack of proof just shows how clever the cover-up has been.

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? 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.
