 The names on top only tell me one thing and that is "don't get caught"

Not too many Rugby League 'names' there Bubba . . I guess that that is because you are Victorian

Or perhaps it is because poor behaviour is an acceptable part of their 'culture"(?)

Or perhaps you just didn't have enough room, or enough time  :whistle:

Arthur, did Mundine play NRL before moving on to boxing?

I thought that you had included him in the 'unpopular' not the 'fallen'  :beer:

I note bubba left James Hird Jobe Watdon and Abblet off his lists

By the way what happened with these 2
"FORMER Richmond player Jake King has been charged with making threats to kill, while Hawthorn player Tyrone Vickery is being investigated over extortion claims"

WOD, over the years countless sportsmen have been charged with criminal offences. The criteria for those fallen or unpopular does not mean they may or may not have had criminal convictions..
Tomic, Warner and Mundine have never been criminals but they certainly are unpopular.

On reflection I should change the category in my original posting, the Downfall of Sportsmen should only relate to International sportsmen..Carey is unknown outside of Australia and is eliminated, whereas the inclusion of Smith is appropriate .

We can name the racing jockeys and trainers who have been banned or suspended or fined but the list will be too many. However they all have been welcomed back so unsure if we need a new category for fallen sports stars who made a comeback.
