A friend and I were talking about the lockout and he said that he thinks the whole thing going back to 94-95 04/05 to now would be a intresting 30/30. I think it would intresting seeing the player changing their leadership group how Linden took the fall for the players when all he cared about was the game and the fans.

Here are some other ideas for episodes:
- The steriod era in all sports not just baseball. "the pressure to be great"

- The Mike Danton David Frost saga. "really strange story would make a great episopde"

- Manny Pacquiao Floyd Mayweather "the fight that never happened"

- Tiger Woods "fall from grace"

- Highly touted first round picks that ended up being busts "alex daigle ryan leaf kwame brown matt bush"

A 2(?) hour long documentary on TSN that describes big events in sports. Shows what happened in 20/20 hindsight ;)

It's "30 for 30".

And sadly, the only Canuck-related that may garner enough attention to warrant such treatment would surround the Bertuzzi-Moore incident, and all that transpired from it. But even that won't happen until the ending is written and the case is finally closed/settled.

It doesn't really fit in this series but I'd like to see a behind the scene look at every year(going forward) of the Stanley Cup Playoffs sort of like 24/7 only for the entire playoffs.

Your Woods and first rounders ideas sound pretty good.

I'd love to see one on the Chicago Bulls of the 90s. The idea about steroids in sports (or maybe just MLB) was really good. Maybe one on Hurricane Katrina and the New Orleans Saints. One on Josh Hamilton might be cool too.

I think one on the Marc Savard hit and what his life is like now. It killed me to watch the Bruins win the cup but imagine how Savard felt........ Did he get his name on the cup?

Not sure if it's been done but a Michael Schumacher one would be interesting, especially since he came back (and retired for good now)

Johnny Gaudreau>any Casucks

Edler, Markstrom, Hansen, 2nd round pick 2014 to Islanders for Ryan Strome, 5th overall pick 2014

This is fairly even as well.

What about soccer/football stories?

I'd love an indepth analysis of the Italian match fixing scandal, but I'm not sure from whose perspective the film would best work.

What about the Zidane headbutt?

Maradonna's Hand of God? (probably been over-analyzed to death)

The Busby Babes / Munich air disaster, where 10+ Manchester United players and staffers were killed when the team's plane had to stop in Munich for re-fueling after a match.

its a good series. Each one I've seen has been good. Here is a few that I thought were interesting

Into the wind - Terry fox story steve nash directed i think
9.79* - story of the 88 mens 100 m final
You don't know bo - Bo Jackson story
Gretzky's tears - story of his trade from Edmonton. they were crocodile tears


For sure the Bert / Moore story could be one
