Part 6 of the Greatest Tragedy in Sports. Just before Youtube decided to remove their tags (apparently they're doing this to prevent girls from making $ wearing pushup bras), Part 6 was averaging 20,000 views per day and the views were climbing. It's the only youtube video I've ever seen that never reached its peak until now, since Youtube only has a small window for videos to get noticed. Why it was getting so many views, is a great question and I will answer it like this:
-99% of the public still believe Tim Donaghy was an official in game 6, 2002
-ESPN still hasn't attempted to do any investigative work with regards to game 6.
-SI was going to do a 10 year anniversary piece on gm 6, 02, but the editors killed it.
-To my knowledge, it is the most censored topic in professional sports
-And that topic deals with Donaghy, his allegations, & light sentence.
However since the tags that deal with this subject (Los Angeles Lakers, Sacramento Kings, 2002, Western Conference Finals, Tim Donaghy, game 6) have now been removed from youtube, the traffic to my videos have decreased by 95%. To me this is the Greatest Tragedy of Youtube.

Well it has finally happened. YouTube found a way to decrease the traffic to my video after averaging about 20,000 views per day. I don't know why all of a sudden the views would drop to only 1,000 per day, after never reaching a plateau or peak even ever since 2008, when it reached 978,000 views by 2011 before YouTube deleted my original channel titled NFLranking. YouTube must be guilty of removing the flow of traffic I had reaching this video, since they're already guilty of deleting my original channel in the first place. As it stands this video has nearly 1.3 million views and should have 2.3 millions views total if the original one was never removed. I will in the future make one last 1-2 hour documentary about all of this:
- The 3 bogus strikes by the NFL about my NFL videos
- The interviews I did with ESPN and SI that were never published
- The Conspiracy by YouTube to make channels like mine go unnoticed
- The Conspiracy by the Maloofs to move out of Sacramento's small market.
- The Twitter revolution
- Tim Donaghy's book
- The Book titled "Gaming the Game" about Donaghy's bookie
- The Fix is In by Brian Tuohy
- "Why the NBA is Declining" the video that was on SI.COM
- Parts 1-9 of "The Greatest Tragedy in Sports"
- The JFK Conspiracy (yes because I see too many similarities in Donaghy & Oswald)
- The NBA post 2008
- And ultimately why I felt obligated to produce "The Greatest Tragedy in Sports"
