-> Last season, Steph Curry hit an average of 5 [three-pointers] per game all by himself. Thanks to guys like him, basketball is completely horrible and everything is ruined forever.

* To most [=NBA=] fans, the league was RUINED FOREVER when the Seattle [=SuperSonics=] were moved from Seattle (a city of 3.98 million in it's metropolitan area that's home to major [=NFL=] and [=MLB=] teams) to Oklahoma City (a city who's metro area has a population of 1,252,987 who's only other sports teams are ''minor league teams'') to become the Oklahoma City Thunder. Doesn't help that the new owner, Clay Bennett, was part of the relocation committee that unanimously voted against a proposed relocation of the Sacramento Kings to Seattle.

* [=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. Despite originally Rossi seemingly boycotting the final race at Valencia, he has decided to kept racing at Valencia. However, with many possibilities of outcomes following this chain of events such as a retirement by Rossi or Rossi moving to another racing category (along with his huge fanbase), 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.

* 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.

** 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.
