Best (oftentimes tenuously) sports related TV show of all time?

There was a show about the NFL that the station pulled because the NFL was unhappy with how it was being portrayed. I can't remember what the show was called or what channel for that matter, but it was a bit on the controversial side. Featured diva receivers, older running backs who cheated on their wives, domestic violence and the tight end was forced out of the closet but was the only player on the team selected to the pro bowl. Drama to the extreme but I remember enjoying the show.

"First and Ten" -- this was a show on HBO in the 80's.  Ogre, from Revenge of the Nerds was on there, and there was female nudity, which, as a red-blooded American teenager, I fully appreciated.

Wow, yes, forgot about that show....and the rampant, unnecessary nudity was a huge plus....

Is memory failing me or was OJ Simpson also on that show? The team name was the Bulls, right?

Normal Buck's picture

Yes, OJ was on there! I forgot about that too.

Cheap Seats on ESPN Classic was must watch TV for me.  Basic premise was 2 smartasses making fun of goofy sports.

Could never get past the fact that the Sklar brothers are Michigan men. See also: the guy behind Lost Letterman.

Nothing beats Eastbound and Down. I have never laughed so much at a show.

Definitely a great show.  Too bad we have to wait a year and a half between seasons....

Coach Eric Taylor FTW. Loved Friday Night Lights, despite the writers feeling that every single game in high school football comes down to a touchdown on the last play, regardless of field position. Sports Night was a great show too, and a close second for me.

i have to say that American Gladiators was can't miss for me in my youth. Can't remember his real name but dude named "two scoops" that killed for like two years is still one of my favorite non Buckeye athletes of all time

****igan smells like old water that hot dogs were boiled in.  FACT
