* Professional and college sports has more than its fair share of RUINED FOREVER moments. Any major mishap or miscue, particularly regarding roster or management changes, can lead to fans screaming about how their team will never win again. For example, the 2009 signing of Allen Iverson by the Memphis Grizzlies NBA club had fans hoping for a rejuvenation of what was arguably the worst team in all of basketball. Then, when Iverson and the Grizz dissolved their contract mere weeks later, [[http://www.commercialappeal.com/news/2009/nov/16/heisley-iverson-we-want-decision-your-future-soon/ fans were almost literally screaming "Ruined Forever!!"]]
** Those fans who weren't muttering "IKnewIt" anyway.

* Pay drivers have RUINED [[UsefulNotes/FormulaOne FORMULA ONE]] FOREVER! (Never mind that some of the greatest drivers started as pay drivers themselves.)
** For those not in the know, those are drivers that essentially paid a team to drive a car, something that's happened throughout its history, but has emerged into prominence in recent years as a result of the economy and the needs of less fortunate teams to find money somehow.
* This was the reaction of football fans when the World Cup was expanded from 32 teams to 48.

* [=MotoGP=] is seemingly heading to this after the scandalous 2015 Malaysian Grand Prix. Please note that RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment is needed here. What the majority of fans does say though, is that they saw Marc Marquez's deliberate attempt in order to slow down Valentino Rossi and help fellow Spaniard Jorge Lorenzo to win the title. And then Rossi and Marquez collide, resulting in a crash for Marc. But, it was Rossi who get punished after the race due to accusations that Rossi kicked Marc's bike, even though it was clear from slow-motion replay that Marc hit Rossi's leg ''first'' before he fell down. Clearly, with Rossi seemingly boycotting the final race at Valencia (with other possibilities such as immediate retirement or moving to another racing category, in which Rossi has tested ''so many'' different type of it[[note]]Just a few notable ones; he has tested a Formula One car for Ferrari in mid [=2000s=], ran several WRC races, raced in endurance racing at 2012, and tested a NASCAR car in 2013[[/note]]), [=MotoGP=] is going to be ruined forever.
