Re: Sports record that will NEVER be broken

oscar robertson averaged a triple double for a season... i dont see anyone doing that

and we keep expecting someone to match miami's 'perfect' nfl season, and keep getting disappointed... that one may never fall.

ted williams single season batting record... its hard to imagine anyone else hitting 400 in a season

Re: Sports record that will NEVER be broken

Fernando Tatis with his record of 2 grand slams in one inning off of the same pitcher. It's still hard to fathom that this happened in the first place.

I concur. And another reason he should be in the HoF. An absolute joke.

May never happen again, though technically that's not a record

Re: Sports record that will NEVER be broken

I agree with Chamberlain's records. Even though it's only a single game record, I think the 100 point game is even more impossible to crack than the 50 point average and Robertson's triple double. I think Kobe is the one who said it would probably be broken in his lifetime, but I dunno, when someone gets near 80 or so I'd think you'd use all five of your guys to defend him and let anyone else on the other team score. Even Lebron/Wade/Kobe/Jordan-in-his-prime couldn't score that much more if, say, all five Bobcats players surrounded them, right?

Re: Sports record that will NEVER be broken

kerry collins was the starting qb in 4 regular season losses against the falcons.. a few years back..

whichever team he was with played the falcons twice in the first half of the season and lost.. then he was traded, and his new team played them twice in the second half of the season..

Unless I'm in a tight playoff race at the end of the season or something (and really for a team to be a playoff contender and give up 100 to a single player, they must play in the shallow East), I'll take the loss and prevent the guy from scoring 100.

I was just thinking about this. The scenario might work out if the scoring machine is playing against a team that has something to play for and is more worried about the win than the dubious honor of giving up 100.

Re: Sports record that will NEVER be broken

Henri Richard's 11 Stanley Cups (trivia: since he was born Feb. 29th, he had more Cups than birthdays in his NHL career).

I thought that was a record in all pro sports but I just read that some Bill Russell dude also won 11 titles in the NBA. How 'bout that.

Wrong.

excerpt

On ABC right now, they’re talking about the question of whether or not LeBron James could ever average a triple-double across the course of a season, the way Oscar Robinson did in the 1961-62 season. Discussion of this issue would benefit from consideration of the question of pace. NBA record-keeping wasn’t sufficiently detailed in the 1960s to calculate pace factor in a fully rigorous manner, but everyone’s understanding is that the game was played much faster in the 60s than it was even in the 1980s which, in turn, were faster than today. For example, in the 61-62 season, the average team took 8619 field goal attempts over the course of an 80 game season. Last season the average team had only 6683 field goal attempts in an 82 game season.

In addition - Kelso had to carry weights that are unheard of today in horse racing - at least in the U.S.

Carried 130 pounds or more on 24 occasions, winning 13, placing in 5, and finishing third once
Won 62% of his starts (39 out of 63 starts)
Finished in the money in 84% of his starts (53 out of 63)

There was a big uproar when Curlin had to carry 129 lbs. in a Grade 1 race.

Of course, Kelso was a gelding. There was nothing for him to do other than racing.

These records are pretty safe simply because of expansion over the last 30 years. When Richard played for Montreal, they only had 6 teams in the NHL and now they are up to 30 teams. I believe that Russell played most of his career with 10-12 teams in the NBA, and now they have 30 teams.

That's because every team except the Patriots is coached by and made up of blubbing crybaby's and gutless cowards who care more about 'resting their best players for the playoffs' then doing the only thing that matters in sports, winning.

Let's just look at the Packers last season. they were cruising through the season and the usual pundits were bleating about how they were HTE GREATEST TEAM EVARS!!!!!!!!!!!! and that the '72 Dolphins sucked donkey shit because they didn't play any team with a winning record their entire season, the clear implication being that Miami had been able to pick and choose what teams they played, and utterly ignoring the fact that the Dolphins played the majority of their season with an aging backup as their starting qb.

Anyway, the Packer's organization, being gutless cowards decided that resting their pwecious ittle qb Aaron Rogers was much more important than going 16-0 and having a full head of steam going into the playoffs so they benched him.

Result? The Packers got the shit kicked out of them by a sucky Giants team AT HOME.

Vince Lombardi shit himself over the Packers gutless cowardice last season.

Re: Sports record that will NEVER be broken

Not only did the Packers lose week 14 to the Chiefs with Rodgers in the game, but the one game he sat out Matt Flynn threw for 480 yards and six touchdowns in the win. And those "sucky Giants" were, I dunno, ok in the end I guess. Sorry if I'm missing the sarcasm or something here.

Wouldn't surprise me if Messi breaks Pele's scoring 'record', the real one, not the phony numbers that get listed all the time.

All of the old school pitching records are pretty safe. Ricky has stolen bases locked for life.

The same sucky Giants team that beat the Patriots (the one team that isn't coached by and made up of blubbing crybaby's and gutless cowards) in the last Super Bowl?

If I recall the Patriots (the one team that isn't coached by and made up of blubbing crybaby's and gutless cowards) were UNDEFEATED (doing the only thing that matters, winning) and LOST to the sucky Giants in another Super Bowl just a couple of years before that.
