A professional athlete had a disciplinary hearing for some pretty mild trash talking! You'll shake your head when you read what he said.
Does snooker count as a sport? It airs on sports channels sometimes, so we are going to assume that it's a sport. (If you don't know, snooker is a game very similar to pool / billiards).
Anyway, in 1996, a snooker played named Ronnie O'Sullivan was brought to a disciplinary hearing for saying that he played better with his bad hand than his opponent did with his good hand. He was being charged with basically being cocky and insulting his opponents.
Well, Ronnie played the World Champion Runner Up three different times, each with his bad hand while his opponent used his good hand.
As it turns out, Ronnie wasn't lying when he said he played better with his bad hand than his opponents do with their good hand, because he beat the Runner up for the World Championships 3 times in a row.
Not long after, the disciplinary committee dropped the charges against him. Ronnie would go on to win multiple world champion titles!
