    55% of soccer games end in ties. I don't know of any other sport that will ever break that.

    Nah, I think that's doable - get someone with a little speed who makes consistent good contact, willing to bunt to fill in those days when they don't get a "legitimate" hit - could be done.
    Now, Cy Young's 511 wins (and even Walter Johnson's second place 417) are out of reach!

    Bruce Smith 200 sacks. Granted there were definitely players, The Deacon comes to mind, before Bruce and reggie White that made more plays and probably had more sacks. Unfortunately, stats for sacks weren't officially kept by the NFL until 1982.

    There was some research done to try to prove that Deacon Jones was the all-time leader. Sack Story. They came up with 173 1/2.

    The closest active player right now is Michael Strahan (NY Giants) with 118. He's been playing for 10 years already. I don't know if he can do it. Bruce played 19 seasons. Not too many guys can last that long in the NFL these days.
    A little more volume in the headphones please.

    I think Richard Petty's 200 NASCAR Grand National/Winston Cup wins is pretty much out of reach, too.

    I agree with this and Richard Petty's 200 wins.

    There is no way nobody will be able to break that. Even just getting to 50 wins is hard enough in a career

    wow, all good ones!!

    the only completely unbreakable record i know of, and this is a stone-cold lock, is Nolan ryan's...he has 8 career no-hitters..8!!
    never, ever, ever will even be threatened....
    all the other's the 56 game streak..hey, catch lightning in a bottle...but 8 no-hitters? never....

    gretzky..always figured his to be unbreakable..especially w/o any hockey!!

    Petty? probably unbreakable,, but im not positive

    Good topic.

    My #1 choice would be Cy Young's 511 wins. I believe this would be impossible to break given modern pitching usage.

    Billy Hamilton's record of scoring 192 runs in a season would be hard to beat.

    Hack Wilson's 191 RBI looks secure.

    Chief Wilson's 36 triples in 1912 hasn't been even remotely approached in 70 years.

    Wilt Chamberlain averaged 27.2 rebounds per game in 1961. He also averaged
    50.4 points per game in 1962. No one's coming close to those any time soon.

    Those are just a few from basketball and baseball. My personal belief is
    that Cy Young's mark is the only truly "untouchable" one of these.

    In today's hockey, I don't think you'll ever see anybody score 92 goals ever again. That record IMO is unbreakable with today's rules and clutching and grabbing.

    Joe D's 55 game hitting streak will never be touched either.

    No way that Nolans no-hitters will be touched, nor will Cy Youngs 511 wins....I seriously doubt that 300 wins will be reached...the way the pitching strategy has changed, set-up guys and closers screw it all up to break those records...I respect guys like Cory Lidle that can go out there and pitch complete games and get a few CG shutouts....hey Sucka: I plugging the Phillies here man!
    Just go for it!

    It's a bit of a freak record, but it's doable. Technically any pitcher that wins 8 games has the potential for all 8 to be nohitters - not likely of course, but it's possible. But with the way the game is played today, 511 wins by any pitcher is unachievable. That's 25.5 years of winning 20 games, or only 20.44 of winning 25. Find someone that can win 30 games in a year, they'd have to do it 17.03 times! To turn that around, even if you could find someone that could be an effective starter for 30 years, they'd have to average 17.03 wins a year.

    Roger Clemens, who has the best winning pct. out of the top-five active pitchers with the highest number of starts, has only won 15.61 games per year - doesn't seem like it would be much for a pitcher to average 1.5 more wins per year, but then they'd not only have to do it for the 21 years Clemens has been around, but then 9 more! For his 21 years and 15.61 wins per year, Clemens still trails Young by 183 wins!

    The best winning pct. of any active pitcher with over 1000 innings pitched are Tim Hudson and Pedro Martinez. Hudson's managed 15.33 wins per season for his 6 years, Martinez 15.16 for his 12. Impressive, but like Clemens, not going to get them even close to Young.

    Young averaged 37.05 starts in his 22 years in the league - many years having over 40. The most Clemens ever had was 36, and that only once. His average is 30.43, and that's probably about normal. Six pitchers led the league with 35 starts last year. The opportunities just aren't there unless someone comes along who is virtually unhittable (and then they'd break the no-hitter record on their way to breaking Young's record!)
