Rowing, circa late 1800s.
Few sporting traditions evoke such honor, integrity, fashion sense, and utter chicanery. I’m referring of course to the sport’s infamous 19th century, when professional rowing was at its downright dirtiest and, in my opinion, its most entertaining.
If the away team is favored to win, have the crowd destroy the boat.
If the away team is winning, send in the freighters to run them over.
If the away team wins, call it a draw and nullify the bets.
If all else fails, start a riot.
Toast the spoils in your club colors.
Victory by any means necessary.
