There Will be Blood (2009 Rugby Bloodgate Scandal)

Hall of Shame - October 5, 2020 - 38:58

Rachna is going to need Rachel to grab a tissue and apply pressure. It’s the quarter finals of the 2009 Heineken Cup. The Harlequins are up against Leinster when their star player, Nick Evans, gets injured and benched. But lucky for The Quins' Rugby director, there's a very specific blood rule that allows teams to circumvent substitutions rules. So when Harlequin's full-back Tom Williams starts profusely bleeding on the field, the timing seems a little too good to be true.

About The Show

Fox Sports host and comic Rachel Bonnetta (“Lock It In”, “@Buzzer”) and comedy writer Rachna Fruchbom (“Fresh Off the Boat”, “Parks and Recreation”) are here to share their love for two things: sports and DRAMA. Sure, they obsessively root for Cleveland (the Browns and the Cavaliers, respectively), but they get even more excited by those crazy moments in sports that become almost legendary. We all know the sensationalistic scandals about cheating, gambling and sex, but Rachel and Rachna want to discover the humanity behind the headlines. That’s why they started Hall of Shame -- every week Rachel and Rachna will take each other through some of the biggest scandals in sports, from the thrill of Dock Ellis’ acid fueled no-hitter on acid to the agony of Rosie Ruiz’s fake Boston Marathon win. With humor and a healthy dose of perspective, they get to the bottom of what exactly went down, why these stories matter, and how they’re still relevant today. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll feel more invested in sports than you ever thought possible.
