:D I do admire an agitator, Stayin', but might'nt James be a drive-by and, if so, shouldn't you defend his honor (or is that humor).

Seeing as how Schmeling and Hitler didn't get along, and he was never a Nazi, you're description of him isn't really very accurate.

I have him in my own deadpool. He was a good man and I will be sorry to see him go. He was not a Nazi and because he basically told Hitler to kiss off, he was drafted into the German paratroopers where he was sent on suicide missions. Can you believe that this man paid for Joe Louis' funeral? It was recently found out that at the risk of his own life he saved two jewish boys from Krystallnacht and subsequently got them out of the country. Please Change Nazi boxer to German boxer and philanthropist. Have a nice day.

Well the evidence does seem to suggest Max is/was a pretty good guy...so i've made a small amendment - At least those who cant remember who he was still get the right memory jog.

Whatever next ? - Surely I'm not gonna find out Jesse Owens wasnt Hitler's athlete next!! :lol:

Well, it is quiet simple.

:lol: 65 years ago every german was a nazi, killed jewish children and supported Hitler (or maybe not).


And nowadays every American soldier tortures iraqui inmates and wants war with half the world to give them "democracy" and "human rights" (or maybe not).

Kirk Douglas was a spy of John McCarthy (or maybe not) and Peter Ustinov was Churchhills adjutant (or maybe not).

John McCarthy?
That's why we didn't see Kirk Douglas for a while, he was chained to a radiator in Beirut for a few years.
Joseph McCarthy...never heard of him.

Hold your horses Anubis! - it's clear "a German" has made a slip - he obviously didn't mean John McCarthy

He surely meant Paul McCarthy - the guy who that was in that famous band with Jimmy Lennon (Jr), Rex Harrison and Kenneth Starr....

At least the German Government believes that Schmeling will outlive this year. They recently refused to release a stamp with his face on next year, because no living person may appear on a stamp in Germany.

One of the key figures of sports history in the 20th century. A major pawn in the battle between democracy and the evils of the German 3rd Reich. A man who wanted to be a boxer and someone important eventually showed his colors by defying the Nazi regime. He his the children of his jewish friend and helped them escape Germany and saved their lives.

He later became wealthy from the not so German business of manufacturing Coca Cola. Just goes to show you!!

99..........Go Max!!
