Taylor filed for bankruptcy in 1998, literally to keep a roof over his head. According to the Daily News, Taylor was a full year behind on his mortgage payments at the time of the filing. However, his record on the field always spoke for itself, and his financial woes didn’t stop him from being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1999, just one year after declaring bankruptcy. His personal troubles didn’t end there, however, with a traffic-related arrest in 2009 and statutory rape charges during a 2010 trial. He was sentenced to six years probation and had to register as a level one sex offender in 2011.
Cheating has been a part of the Olympics Games since its creation. Individual players, coaches, even entire teams have been caught trying to up their advantage in one way or another. As the saying goes however, cheaters never prosper and at some point they are caught. At best they lose their standing or their metals. At worst, they are barred from participating at the Games for years or for life. Some wonder if the risk of being caught even makes the cheating worth it. Maybe they feel they will never be caught, that they can somehow slip under the radar and have their moment in the spotlight. In an event as big as the Olympics, there’s nowhere to hide and eventually the truth will out.
In every professional sport there is an aspect of cheating. Whether disqualified for doping or discredited for bribing the judges, in the end cheaters never really win. Here are ten Olympic Games cheaters from over the years.
Five athletes tested positive for the stimulant bromantan and were disqualified by the IOC, but later reinstated after an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport: swimmers Andrey Korneyev and Nina Zhivanevskaya , Greco-Roman wrestler Zafar Guliyev and sprinter Marina Trandenkova , all from Russia, and the Lithuanian track cyclist Rita Razmaitė . Dr. Vitaly Slionssarenko, physician to the Lithuanian cycling team and team coach Boris Vasilyev were expelled from the games.    The CAS overturned the IOC decision, because bromantan had only recently been added to the prohibited list,  and the athletes and officials were reprimanded.    The Russians had argued that bromantans wasn't a stimulant and thus not banned.
