Who is your most hated athlete ever

TomiTomi Posts: 574 ✭✭✭

Prince Naseem Hamed (boxer) was mine. Never seen a bigger showboat and pretty much got destroyed when the competition level was higher as the fights went on.

    I must admit, I enjoyed watching Barrera put Hamed in his place.

    A Rod. I hate the Yankees and hate juicers and he puts a big checkmark in both boxes.

    Here’s a twist: most hated players on your favorite teams. Here are mine....

    Patriots: Steve Grogan. Greatly overrated player and a complete anus when I met him

    Red Sox: Manny Ramirez. I admire savvy, intelligent ball players who work hard and hustle. Manny was none of those, then forced his way out of Boston. Once gone, he was suspended multiple times for PEDs. Hate that man.

    A big fan of the Bad Boys!!! Laimbeer was a player that pretty much everyone hated except maybe his teammates and probably some of them did not like him. Laimbeer was actually one of the early centers that had a 3 point game which made the opposing teams center come out and guard him on the perimeter.

    That Detroit team ruined the NBA for many fans. Attacked the skill of the Lakers and Celtics by fouling so much that the refs wouldn’t dare call them all.

    It was a different game back then for sure. Defensively you could get away with a lot more. Just think if Jordan played today how much more of a scoring machine he would be. I remember when the Bulls finally knocked off the Pistons. It took them a couple of years but they finally toppled them.

    Jose Bautista - loved it when Roughned Odor clocked him.
    Rickey Henderson - I'll never forget when we were trying to rattle him at Skydome and he turned around in the OF and gave us the finger. Hilarious
    Darren O'Day - rude on many occasions
    Mark Trumbo - rude and a very odd man. My daughter (14) and I went for a walk to get breakfast downtown Toronto and saw him walking on the sidewalk by himself. As we crossed paths, My daughter said "Good Morning Mr Trumbo" and I said "Good luck today Mark." We did not stop until he turned around and said "No, Good Luck to You" in a very hostile and condescending manner after nearly knocking my daughter over. We were not asking for an autograph or his time. Not to mention the Orioles are paying this guy $13 million this year for absolutely nothing.

    That was cheap, but at least it was in the flow of the play. A cross check to the face has GOT to be the worst imo.

    I remember Chelios trying to gouge one of the North Stars players eyes out one time.

    "Chelios was particularly dirty in that game, attacking Brian Bellows at center ice, gouging at his eye and scratching his cornea."

    Same incident; "Minnesota at Chicago, Game 5. As North Star winger Brian Bellows lay prone on the ice after being knocked off his skates, Blackhawk defenseman Chris Chelios gouged Bellows's eye with his finger. Bellows suffered scratches to the cornea and blurred vision."

    I forgot Mike Timlin. He played in a legends game I attended in Cooperstown at which post game autographs are kind of an expected part of the deal. Apart from the crowd, I asked him to sign a ball. He gave a 4-5 minute monologue about how he was late for a flight, when it would have taken 3 seconds to say “no, sorry” or 10 seconds to write his name. I hope he missed his flight by 3 minutes.

    I know a lot of people don't like him. Why?

    He played for the Twins for quite a while and I always heard that he was irritating to the other teams, but as a fan I didn't see him as that bad.

    Please elaborate.

    Very dirty player; would purposefully aim for players sliding into bases; would talk shit to players while catching; argued with umps a lot when he thought a pitch was a strike and it wasn’t.

    It definitely appears as though Hunter timed his jump and follow through to coincide with the stanchion. I didn't like Lemieux either and that was a truly dirty hit from behind.

    His manager (Ozzie Guillen) said of him-he’s the kind of player you hate when he’s on the other team. When he’s on your team you hate him a little less.

    If he threw at baserunners, that was bad. I never heard that, or noticed it when he was a Twin.

    Talking to the opposition to take them out of the game and harassing the umps nothing new or upsetting there.

    That's bad!

    I could never understand why the NHL allows their best offensive players to be hit in ways that are obvious attempts to injure. I would think that you need the gifted players on the ice to entertain the casual fan (and the hard core ones too).

    It’s a tie for me between bill laimbeer and draymond green.

    At some point I just want to watch the game and not the constant whining to the refs.

    Plus the cheap/nut shots from these guys

    Michael Schumacher for trying to rub out Jacques Villeneuve at a formula 1 race,Schumacher had the points lead going into the last race of the season at Jerez so all he had to do was finish ahead of Jacques to win the championship,but the sneaky Schumacher veered into Jacques as he was attempting a pass on the Ferrari driver but the plan backfired it was Schumacher who retired ,Villeneuve finished the race with enough points to overhaul Shumi and win the 1997 World Drivers Championship.

    It wasn’t with the twins; was with the white Sox; not throwing at runners, sliding into players. And a close second behind him was the manager at the time, Ozzie Guillen.
