10 Sports Figures You Don’t Mess With

10 Sports Figures You Don’t Mess With

In light of Mike Piazza’s ridiculous accusations in his book, that legendary broadcaster Vin Scully somehow turned Dodgers fans against him, it made us think of a line from The Departed. “There are guys you can hit and guys you can’t.

Random Pro of the Week: Doug Christie

  There have been tons of villains in sports and fans are inherently going to dislike a few. But I don’t think I’ve ever outright hated an athlete more than I hated Doug Christie.

Chris Culliver showed a severe form of homophobia, made anti-gay remarks and then played a horrendous game as Joe Flacco consistently picked on him. Culliver is as much to blame for the 49ers loss as any one player. Barret Robbins took off two days before the Super Bowl to party in Tijuana. He...
