* WhatAnIdiot: Paige boldly claimed that [=LeBron=] James would average 30 points in the 2012 playoff series against Indiana. He was so confident that he said that, if the Heat lost, Paige wanted Reali to deduct 30 points away. When the Heat won the series, on the backs of Wade and James (who ''did'' score a combined average of 69 points since Game 4), Paige eagerly asked for a 30-point ''raise''. Reali and the other panelists [[LampshadeHanging quickly pointed that out]] and deducted about 11 points away from Paige. Dude still won in that episode, though. [[invoked]]

** Every year, Pablo Torre predicts that one of the 16-seeds in the NCAA tournament will defeat a 1-seed. Every year (so far), he's been wrong. In 2017, when ATH came back on the air after the tournament's opening weekend, Reali started Monday's episode by giving Pablo a huge point deduction then lightning bolting him before ''the opening credits'', mocking him the entire time. This would continue for the rest of the week, with Blackistone and Fagan taking over Pablo's spot.

* AscendedExtra: Pablo Torre, Israel Gutierrez, and Frank Isola are appearing a lot more frequently in the shows. Reali could also count, as he went from occasional panelist to long-term host.

** At the beginning of the Jan. 10, 2016 episode (the day David Bowie died), Reali began the program with, "commencing countdown, engines on."

*** This was arguably exceeded when Plaschke declared that the 2016 NLCS between the Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers was over after the Dodgers went up 2 games to 1. After the Cubs rallied to win the series in six games, Reali eliminated Plaschke from the show during the '''opening intro''' not once, but ''twice'', and when Plaschke appeared the day after the Cubs won the World Series, he muted Plaschke to a score of -108 (one for each year the Cubs had waited in-between titles) just before the day's eliminations were to occur. '''Ouch.'''

* FollowTheLeader: When Max Kellerman left for Fox Sports, ''ATH'' panelist Michael Holley and "Disembodied Voice" announcer Bill Wolff joined him as they starred in a short-lived ''ATH'' clone called ''I, Max'', in which Kellerman and Holley debated topics ''ATH''-style with Wolff scoring their debates in rounds à la boxing. It lasted just a few months.

-->'''Woody Paige''': I love the nickname. If you go back in history, where did "Bam Bam" come from? He was left on the doorstep of TheFlintstones; he was adopted, and they named him Bam Bam because he could swing a club so well.

* EliminatedFromTheRace: After Buy or Sell and Round 3, the lowest-scoring player is cut with a lightning-bolt effect.

* EliminatedFromTheRace: After Buy or Sell and Round 3, the lowest-scoring player is cut with a lightning-bolt effect. With the show's format change, two panelists are now eliminated at the end of Buy or Sell.



* FanDisservice: When the MLB brought in a dress code for reporters banning tank tops, flip flops and short skirts ''Woody Paige'' said he'd go to the first game wearing all three. He lost points for it.
* FlippingTheBird: After Paige used his fingers to count how many technicals Blake Griffin had (and lost points and the lead because his thumb stuck out, resulting in 17 instead of 16,) Reali eliminated him, but not before Woody showed another 16 fingers, with the last one being the middle finger.

* TooSoon: [[invoked]] Sensitive topics, such as deaths, arrests or possible racial issues, are sometimes discussed without any scoring, loud voices, or interrupting other panelists. To drive the point home, Reali will often close the topic by pointing out "[[LampshadeHanging not a lot of scoring that round]]" before moving on. The Out of Bounds segment is usually reserved for this material. One notable occurrence was the Freeh report on the Jerry Sandusky-Joe Paterno-Penn State scandal. Entering Buy Or Sell, ''nobody'' had a point, and barely anyone spoke over the other (sans Reali).
