Not making the list this time, (and I’m not sure why) were Plaxico Burress Ndamukong Suh, and Terrell Owens.
The story of Manti Te’o and his “girlfriend” is still in question. There are too many unanswered concerns about his statements throughout the situation. The whole story cannot be put into a cognitive paragraph.
What can we say about Lance Armstrong? He is a villain of the highest magnitude, and continues to attempt to make himself appear to be “just one of many who broke the rules”. What he is actually doing is trying to save his money.
Tiger Woods most likely lost the majority of his credibility for all time when he crashed his SUV on that fateful Thanksgiving Day. But, I, for one, cannot deny that I still love to watch him play. And he has one redeeming quality, he is extremely generous in charitable donations.
I don’t understand at all why Ndamukong Suh is not near the top of the list. He is the dirtiest player in football. He’s actually worse than that, he tries to physically injure other players.
As for Terrell Owens, he made himself a “nobody”, not even deserving of being part of a negative list. He’s a complete joke. Possibly one of the most physically gifted athletes of all time, he never possessed the intelligence to use his talents. He let his ego rule many bad choices.
It’s a fun list. The fans have spoken. With more uneducated and immature athletes joining the professional ranks every year, we may see a much longer list in the near future.
