Niner: Top Nine disliked people in sports.
Posted August 26, 2009
I saw Forbes List of The Most Disliked People in Sports. It was good, but mine is better! Besides there are a few in this area, that didn't make my list, but could be put on there by sports fans for whatever reason. Just so you know, if the coaches named Mike Krzyzewski or Dean Smith, come to mind, it's probably because of their SUCCESS. Like it or not, that disdain may have some RESPECT in it.
THESE PEOPLE I DO NOT RESPECT:
9 – The Steinbrenner’s: Learning some of his best moves from his father, Hank has managed to insult a lot of people in a short amount of time.
8 – Bud Selig: Aside from ignoring the steroid problem. He has had a hand in killing a World Series, a finish to an All-Star Game, and even The Montreal Expos.
7 – Gary Betteman: As the only commissioner to ever kill an entire season, the NHL's boss is pretty much universally disliked among hockey fans.
6 – Nick Saban: Saban left LSU to head to the NFL, and then after leading the Dolphins into the tank with a 1-15 record, he quickly jumped back into the SEC to take over Alabama's program - announcing it by just leaving a note in his former players' lockers.
5 – Donte Stallworth: He drove drunk and killed someone. But it was the 24 DAYS in jail that landed him on this list.
4 – Terrell Owens: Particularly unpopular in the Bay Area, Philadelphia, and Dallas, Owens is well known for his abilities of insulting and baiting a team's starting quarterback, not to mention an ability to write your ticket out of town. On the bright side, he is good at doing push-ups in the driveway.
3 – Michael Vick: The horrific way he brutally killed dogs makes him a reprehensible human being!
2 – Jerry Jones: Let me start with the horrific way he fired Tom Landry. The rest is a by-product of his Texas-size ego.
1 – Rasheed Wallace: Do I really need to give you a reason?
