    Just watched this one. Cracking film. Is it the truth?

    Looked like a few gaps in the narrative to me.

    I thought the trial was rushed. How are those guys remembered? Victims or villains ?

    The film tried to show why they sold out. Charles Comisky was a prick

    Eddie Ciccotte was their best pitcher. He made $6,000 a year. There was a clause in his contract that he would get a $10,000 bonus if he won 30 games. He won 29 with three starts left and Comisky ordered him benched

    Of course Ciccotte took a bribe

    How should we know?

    You claim that you watched it, and if it was anyone else, there would be little reason to doubt the truth of such a claim, but given that it's you, and given your long-established history of being rather solidly removed from truth, I think it would be foolish to assume, just because you claim to have watched something that it is the truth.
