What are some sports records that will never be broken?
I think a lot of the worst points records won't be beaten. Because a lot of them involved teams performing so abysmally shit, that teams nowadays can overcome them even with a few lucky performances.
Michael Schumacher - 91 career Grand Prix wins
To put it into perspective, the driver with the second highest number of race wins in Formula 1 history is Alain Prost
He's only 40 behind on 51.
41 triple-doubles in a season. Also averaged a triple-double for an entire season
Got some bad news
Wayne Gretzky most goals in a single season 92, and Teemu Selanne most goals by a rookie in a single season 76.
>back-to-back no hitters
yeah no way in hell given the way pitchers are treated now.
I know this trolling, but that was already done a long time ago. 1972 dolphins m8
F U C K I N
R E K T
>replying to tripfag who's obviously a fucking retard
Youngest ever F1 driver. They changed the rules so that you have to be 18 now
Tom Brady's incoming 5th super bowl championship.
Several of Ty Cobb's records:
>.366 career batting average
>most money made by a pro athlete in the stock market
>most egregious slander committed against a person by an unethical Jew sportswriter
Jacques Kallis' records as an all rounder.
>tfw we will never see a cricketer as good as him again
The sound would be weird and not loud, since sound is louder when propagated by air and not by flesh.
And nigger boy o boy, there was no empty gaps with air that day for Maracanã to fill 200k people.
Are people actually saying Arsenals invincibles season when Preston literally already did it years before them
the oilers 4 cups in a row, desu the salary cap fucks this
Why do all you dumb asses say "no chance| "never gunna happen", etc.? You do realize how time works right , and that the majority of these NA sport records are based on like 100 years (at best) of data? What about in 500 years, 10 000, etc.? Just think before you post things
Theres more chance of someone pbreaking Wilt's 100 points record than his 55 rebounds record.
also 50 ppg season, 28 rpg seasson and >48 mpg season.
If anything 100 points would be the easiest to break of Wilt's records
Gretzky assists record, Gretzky's points record, Wilt 50ppg, wilt whatever his fucking rebound average was, like 28rpg, over 48mpg, had like 50 rebounds in a game,100 points, just overall impossible stats. Cy Young's dumb as fuck records, that ridiculous cricket player.
Iron Man Streak
Dimaggio hitting streak
Nolan Ryan K's (and walks record)
Oscar Robertson averaging a triple double for a season (and he managed to average one for 5 seasons combined).
Just managing at the top level for 26 years, forget all the trophies. Wenger won't last another 6 years and the rest of them average 1.6 years or something
Favre's consecutive starts / interception total
Cy Young's number of wins (wins also holds the unbreakable record for most irrelevant stat in baseball)
That one soccer game that had 2 goals
Barry Bonds' number of bootys blasted
Back-to-back no hitters are the best example of this. Somebody MIGHT do it again someday, maybe, years down the road. But to BREAK it, they'd have to throw three in a row. That would be the single most unlikely occurrence in the history of sport.
It's not that I'm a James fan, it's that I'm literate and the horrific grammar in that graphic offends me. I have no problem with the content.
>as a Spurs fan I enjoy lebron discomfort
>not realising it's an obvious shoop
Anyway, Jonathan Edwards' triple jump record of 18.29m will not be beaten in our lifetimes, it's like someone running the 100m in 8 seconds flat.
Most rushing tds by a qb in a season(unless Cam breaks his own record of 14 which is unlikely).
Most rushing tds by a qb in a career once Cam breaks that(he is currently tied with Steve Young).
Barry Bonds HR records*.
Getting beaten 7-1 at your own world cup
Bob Pratt/Peter Hudson 150 goals in a season.
AFL quarters got shortened from 25 to 20 minutes in the mid-nineties. Back then, players scoring ten in a match was a roundly thing. Now it's once a season. I want my long quarters back.
Cal Ripken's 2,632 game Iron-man streak
Started every game every season for more than 16 seasons. For comparison, the longest active streak is just over one full season, and only two players in the 2000's have up a streak of even 500 games
>Live in O'Fallon, Missouri
>Population roughly 79,000
Mfw that stadium had almost 3x the people that live in my hometown
No one will ever hit 56 games in a row again. Much less hit safely in 72/73 games. Joltin Joe was on fire that year.
>DiMaggio's streak was finally snapped at 56 games, thanks in part to two backhand stops by Indians third baseman Ken Keltner. DiMaggio batted .408 during the streak, with 15 home runs and 55 RBI. The day after the streak ended, DiMaggio started another streak that lasted 16 games. The distinction of hitting safely in 72 of 73 games is also a record
this and dimaggio 56 game hit streak will never be topped.
ted williams .406 avg for a season probably will never be topped.
>without a 3 point line
would have been 50+ ppg with the 3 line. There is no doubt that record will never be touched in college.
desu senpai the goat williams record is completeing 39/39 flying mission while in korea in the 50s.
While in Korea, Williams flew 39 missions. He later downplayed his record, writing: “I was no hero. There were maybe seventy-five pilots in our two squadrons and 99 percent of them did a better job than I did.”
one of them almost killed him.
February 17, 1953 ~ only 13 days upon his arrival to Korea ~ Ted was one of 200 flyers in a huge air mission aimed at Kyomipo, North Korea. He was flying low over his target, a troop encampment, when Ted lost sight of the plane in front of him. He dropped down to regain visual contact, but went too low. North Korean soldiers in the encampment blasted him with small arms fire. He lost his landing gear, hydraulic pressure, radio, and was on fire. He managed to land his burning plane and avoid serious injury.
Not only did he have 511 wins, but also 749 complete games
Unitas threw a TD pass in 47 consecutive games. Closest anybody's come is Marino with 30.
Its a numbers game.
Cy Young also holds the record for career losses at 316. But nobody ever talks about that.
Also, Nolan Ryan's strikeout record will never be sniffed. He's got like 900 more than 2nd place.
Generally old records of large amounts of consecutive wins, from the time when sports weren't as professionalized so a single very talented person could go on winning big for a long time. Today a lot more people can get top quality coaching so the average sportsman is a lot closer to the human limit. Also careers don't last as long.
Obviously there are exceptions to this, but in general records in the form of "perform exceptionally well in a single competition" won't last as long.
>1,406 stolen bases
>81 lead-off home runs
>130 stolen bases, single season
>Lou Brock was the symbol of great base stealing, but today I am the greatest of all time.
