Really Terrible Sports Ideas That Didn't Work

We've all had our fair share of bad ideas.

The Boston Red Sox sold Babe Ruth. LeBron James made The Decision. I once traded my Charizard for a Bulbasaur because I thought it had a higher ceiling.

Not all bad ideas, however, are created equal.

Some are more consequential than others. Some might cost you millions and millions of dollars. Some just make you look like really stupid.

The worst of these are on this list.


A few disclaimers:

First, this list could easily drag on into the thousands, so I've tried to stick entirely to horrible ideas from the past few years, focusing especially on the last 12 months.

Second, I realize that the phrases "really horrible" and "didn't work" are both entirely matters of opinion.

Fortunately for all of you, I was born with 100 percent infallibly correct opinions and promise to share those with you completely free of charge. It's a blessing and a curse, really.

Anyway, sit back and enjoy the following reminders that the people involved in the multimillion-dollar industry that so constantly captivates your attention are really a bunch of blundering idiots who can't seem to do anything that makes logical sense.

But hey, I'm not complaining. It makes life a lot more entertaining for the rest of us.
