    i think this is the most racial discrimination content channel of youtube....they only focus on those sports which are either played in USA or european countries.....they think there is no sporting event in countries of better put the title of video as ''Top ten worst collapses in sport history of USA and eupore''.

    • burke615
      burke615 11 дней назад

      While I agree that this video is skewed toward "western" sports - and specifically North American sports - it's a massive stretch to call that racism. You can't seriously believe that this video is motivated by fear or hatred toward Chinese, Indians, etc, can you? It is probably better described as "provincialism," which is to say narrow-mindedness or insularity. They included the sports they know best in "sports history" rather than all sports.
      I mean, you included Australia in your list, and its majority population is (likely) the same race as those who made this video.
      With that said, please don't take this as a full-throated defense of this video. It has major problems, as detailed throughout this comment section. I, for one, would have been interested to see how the Yankees 2004 collapse compared to various other sports worst collapses, whether it be cricket, Aussie football, table tennis, or what have you. But it does pass the very low bar of "not racist."

    I don't follow NBA, NFL, MLB, or golf, but the rest is 50/50...
    #9 John McEnroe - That earned its rightful place in the list.
    #8 Toronto Maple Leafs - This one was really deserved as well.
    #5 Roberto Baggio - What?! A great player missing a penalty is a meltdown? Even if he scored, the next penalty could win it for Brazil... This one doesn't belong anywhere in the list!
    #3 Patrik Štefan - Once again, a single mistake is not a complete meltdown. #8 was a meltdown lasting around 15 minutes of the game, this was a single mistake by a freshly drafted player. Why is this one so high?
    Also, I've seen too many memes with 2017 Atlanta Falcons for it to be just an honorable mention...

    I'm not a Lief's fan, but I think the all time best comeback (or collapse if you're a Red Wing's fan) was the 1942 Stanley Cup finals, where the Lief's won the cup after being down three games to none, coming back to win four straight, to win the cup. That should have been number one on this list, in my opinion.

    I can't believe you put that at #3. Your title is "Top 10 worst Collapses in Sports History" and you ranked number 3 a regular season game. We didn't even give up a huge lead. Oilers were only down by one and tied it. Yes it was embarrassing that he missed the empty net and unbelievable the Oilers with seconds left got the puck to the other end and scored right before the buzzer, but we still won in overtime. How is it a collapse if you still win?

    I think Steve Bartman got totally screwed in the court of public opinion. Was he responsible for interfering with Alou’s attempt to make the catch? Quite possibly, yes. Was he responsible for the Cubs giving up 8 runs in the inning as a result of his actions, or the Cubs’ subsequent failure to win game 7? Hell no! It’s pretty sad what he had to endure after that game. Besides, he did the only thing he’s guilty of is trying to catch a foul ball, which almost all of us were taught to try when attending baseball games.
