Main Conflict

The main conflict was when Steven and his second contest winner Susan Carol over hear Thomas R. Whiting tell a very good player on the team to throw the game. The internal conflict in Steven's mind is " I should tell Dick Weiss, but don't want him to think I am crazy." The external conflict is " I don't want to tell anybody about this." The resolution to the blackmail was Thomas R. Whiting and Earl A. Koheen was arrested for blackmailing.
