By now, everyone has probably seen the Ray Rice video. Let’s make this clear…Ray Rice is one of the most disgusting professional athletes on the planet. To put your hands on a woman is absolutely pathetic. Roger Goodell should be ashamed of himself too…a 2 game suspension is laughable. While many athletes are good people, who help in their community, give back, give it their all, and respect the game, there are also many assholes in the sports world. Without further ado…the top 10 worst people in the sports industry.
10. John Terry
-This British Soccer star cheated on his wife regularly. That is nothing to laugh about, but you may think it’s too common to be on this list…but listen to this…John cheated on his wife with his teammate’s wife! His teammate of 5 years! One of his best friends..and he didn’t apologize. Pure evil. This was a distraction for his whole team, and was a part in preventing Man U from being successful in the EPL that year. Then, the team traded away the other player, not John. Terry, with the help of Manchester United, committed adultery with one of his teammates wives, and never faced any consequences.
9. Lance Armstrong
-This fuckin guy used his Cancer as a distraction to what he was really doing…taking steroids, lying, and cheating the game. Years and years of suspicion and denial finally led up to his pathetic display on Oprah, where he finally admitted using performance enhancing drugs. He won 6 Tour De Frances, and none of them were won by himself. With the help of steroids, Lance prevented hundreds of other athletes from a fair competition, and their chance to be victorious on the biggest cycling stage in the world. People were actually interested in biking when Lance was in his prime. When he broke the news he ruined the sport, because then people went back to not giving a fuck. Lance was a role model for cancer survivors, but then just turned out to be a cheater and a liar.
8. Alex Rodriguez
-Cheated the game. Lied. Cheated the game. Lied. Over and over again. Not many people have cheated the game of baseball as much as A-Rod has. He used the lenient HGH and steroid policies of the MLB to get the richest contract in sports history, and then shut it down. Once the policies became stronger, A-Rod became weaker. As a Yankee, he is always either suspended, injured, or hitting .180 in the playoffs. Although I am happy, because he screwed over the Yankees, as a fan of the game of baseball, I am disgusted. Go swat another ball like a little girl Alex. All the other guys who did steroids were at least pretty cool. I wouldve loved to hang out with Mark McGuire and Sammy Sosa, but you couldn’t pay me to chill with A-Rod.
7. Sepp Blatter
-The world’s most popular sport also has the world’s most corrupt leader. Sepp, the Commissioner of FIFA, has been suspected of accepting bribes from the mob, games, players, refs, and for the 2022 Qatar World Cup. He also interrupted a minute long moment of silence for Nelson Mandela after 11 seconds. Sepp has big ideas for mass appeal of women’s soccer too…he suggested woman soccer players should wear low cut shirts and higher shorts in order to spread popularity. If that’s not enough, Blatter also had an opinion on how to get racism out of the world’s most racist sports…he suggested the players should just “shake hands” after the game. He has enacted no other policies or rules to correct this problem.
6. Ray Rice
-By now we have all seen the video, seen the reactions, and seen the suspension. What he did was horrendous and unforgivable. Roger Goodell only suspended him 2 games. The punishment does not fit the crime, and Ray Rice should not be playing in the NFL this year.
5. Donald Sterling
-There is no reason for racism to still exist. There is especially is no reason for racism in the NBA, as the majority of players are black. Donald Sterling proved that wrong. He is one of the most racist people still walking this Earth, and he owned a franchise with 80% black players, and a black coach. He was living a lie, using black people to make a buck. He is the worst owner in the history of sports.
5a. Bruce Levenson
-After the whole Donald Sterling situation, you would think that Racism would be abolished in the NBA. However, you thought wrong. Bruce Levenson is a prime example of a money hungry, old fashioned, evil owner of a sports franchise. He used Black people to make all his money, and then complained that his team is too black. He begged for a whiter crowd. He asked his coworkers how he could make his team, his fans, and his organization more “white.” How does this guy own a sports franchise??
4. OJ Simpson
-He did it.
3. Oscar Pistorius
-This geach allegedly shot and killed his girlfriend. The trial isn’t over, but all signs point to guilty. Sick bastard.
2. Don King
-Fixes fights, beats women, man-slaughters…this guy is the whole evil package. His wackiness, promotion abilities, and interesting hair may distract the public from his corruption, but it can’t distract me. Don King deserves to be in the ring against Floyd, not just promoting it.
1. Aaron Hernandez
-Probably has killed 30 people. Who knows. He was involved in some sketchy things, with some sketchy people, with some sketchy results. And he got caught. There was a murderer, a “gang banger”, on the Patriots. Crazy world we live in.
1a. Jerry Sandusky
-He should never see the light of day again.
-Most of us at TMC are avid zooters. We indulge in some marijuana, and support the global legalization. However, we do not support idiots who smoke pot. Josh Gordon falls under that category. He is one of the best players in the NFL, and all he had to do to make millions of dollars was to hold off smoking for a couple of months. He had already been caught twice in college, and twice in the NFL. He should have learned his lesson. But no. Josh zooted again, and was caught again. Know the rules. Even if that rule is really stupid, and NFL players should be allowed to smoke weed for medical reasons, Gordon knew the rules, broke them, and hurt his team in the process. The Browns needed him this season, and he has proven to be too selfish to be a team player.
-Athletes can get away with a lot of things…but the public never forgets. No one outside of Pittsburgh thinks about Ben Roethlisberger the superbowl winning quarterback…they think Ben Roethlisberger, the QB who raped a couple girls in the bathroom stall of a bar…
- People were quick to forget Ray Lewis’ involvement in a murder that happened January 31, 2000. Ray will potentially be inducted into the Hall of Fame and two families are still mourning the loss of a loved one. The murders remain unsolved and Ray Lewis has paid an undisclosed settlement to the families. Lewis got off the two counts of murder, because he testified against two of his friends that he was with that night. One of the victim’s blood was found in Ray’s limo and Ray’s white suit that he wore to the Super Bowl that night was never found. Ray may be remembered as one of the greatest linebackers ever to play, but that does not pardon him from these actions.
Tim Hardaway Sr.
You can apologize all you want, but after making a comment as strong as this, you cannot be forgiven. Times have changed and have changed for the best. Homosexuals do not need Tim Hardaway’s approval so next time he should keep his comments to himself, because his words clearly have no value.
