Subject: Which team and/or athlete do you REALLY despise

Written By: Frank on 04/30/09 at 12:33 am

Which athlete to you really dislike. Might be coz he/she is arrogant, a jerk, or always beat your favorite athlete, or there's just something about them that really bugs ya...

or which team do you dislike, despise. Might be because they always win, or that team always beats your favorite, or maybe you think they cheat (Oakland raiders of the 70's and 80's) or just just hate the city because of it's arrogance.

I don't have any team/athelete that I despise. Well, okay, I do think Tony Stewart can be a whiny a-hole at times, but other times he is just bluntly voicing an unpopular, but probably true view.

I am curious about your statement regarding cheating with the 70s and 80s Raiders. What's the scoop on that?

I clearly remember one game (Vs San Diego I think) back in the late 70's or early 80's where the Raiders broke a fumble rules (by illegally advancing it)  2 or 3 times in one play and scored the winning TD and the refs were blind to it.

WOW!!!!  I love this topic!!!!!  I get to make fun of the guys I know and NOT feel bad about it here!!!!  You read my mind!!! Thanks, Frank!!!  :)

Disclaimer:
First, I think if anyone actually does read my posts, they know I love sports. And I do make fun of some the players...I'm not really a mean person, I'm just competitive, I guess.  I love some and love to hate some too.  It's just part of the game....having said that, here I go!!


8-P 8-P 8-P 8-P 8-P  Tony Stewart, Nascar  8-P 8-P 8-P 8-P 8-P
He's a notorious crybaby when he doesn't get his way, and if he doesn't win...he's verbally abusive to his pit crew, he can be a very dirty racer and that can be dangerous. Every once in awhile he does have something good to say, but I usually don't listen because he's a complete jerk 98% of the time.  And what's cool is, since none of you watch Nascar, no one will argue with me on this one! ha  ;)

While I'm at it, Mark Martin. Also Nascar.  But he really only rates one  8-P.  It's not that he's a bad guy or anything, he's just older than dirt. He retired a couple of times, but keeps showing up like a bad penny. I shouldn't give him such crap, because he won a big race this year and wouldn't have if he'd stayed out. He used to drive for Viagra, too.  It's just annoying that guys will actually hang back a little out of respect-thinking they can let him win, but he still doesn't most of the time.  ::)

This is a pretty good thread; I guess I missed it earlier.

Anyho, in MLB, the two teams I care for the least are 1) the Atlanta Braves, due to their annoying tomohawk chant (but they have had some great players in the past 20 years; I gotta give 'em credit for that, but the tomohawk chant is downright annoying), and 2) the New York Yankees, for reasons I cannot explain right now.

I have followed NASCAR since 1994 and when Stewart first came on the scene he was out of control he was NASCAR's version of Rasheed Wallace. Tony has definately calmed down a little tough after he won his first championship in 2002 and the last couple years he has been pretty calm. Your right though Tony is not gun shy to state when the top NASCAR brass is wrong though!!! :)

What did Karl Malone (who I don't like anyways) do to Isiah? I don't remember...Please refresh my memory.
At least you must be happy that Jordan and the Bulls beat the Jazz in the finals. Malone still has no championships.

I don't think Isiah even holds a grudge against Karl for that incident that happened in a 1991-1992 regular season game between the Jazz and the Pistons in Salt Lake City. I think Karl was mad because a month earlier the Pistons beat the Jazz at the Palace of Auburn Hills and Isiah had one of his trademark games scoring like 40+ points againist the Jazz.

Baseball isn't that easy tho. I've played with Pitchers throwing the ball at about 70 mph and I could barely hit it. I can't imagine facing a 90+ mph fastball.

There isn't much bodily contact in baseball (compared to the NBA, NHL and NFL), so it's less demanding in that sense.
Ah, I still like Jordan (maybe because he's exactly my age) and I grew up watching him (on TV) in NCAA North Carolina with Worthy et al.., and I did NOT like Patrick Ewing with the Knicks or at Georgetown.

In terms of activity, baseball isn't really that intensive, but because you have to spend many consecutive days in game conditions it does wear down.  The hardest things to do in baseball, methinks, is to hit a 90+ mph fastball, or any pitch for that matter as it takes less than a second for most pitches to get from the pitcher's hand to the plate, and to turn a double play.

True. Although I have never faced 90+ mph pitching, I have faced 70-75mph pitching. Very hard to make contact. I can't imagine facing 95 mph pitching.

I was almost ostracized from my family for hating Notre Dame. My father and his brothers and sister all went to Camden Catholic High School.
Their colors and nickname were patterned after Notre Dame and in the 70's Notre Dame was pretty much the only televised college football
game.

I've been a NASCAR fan for years, again the only one in my family who is, but I hate the way the sport is going. I really despise that clown that
won last night's race, I am real tired of Kyle Bush. I hate the Car Of Tomorrow, they make for boring races. I hate the NASCAR mandated brake,
suspension and gear packages, put in place so single car owners can have a fighting chance but all it achieves is 42 cars being exactly the same and
whoever leaves the pits first runs away from the field. I hate that the young guns were put into winning programs from the start and none of them
had to earn their stripes, then they all get tremendous egos and expect everyone to move aside for them. Other then that, I'm a fan.

I hear ya. My ex was SOOOOO into football (the Cleveland Browns  ::) ) and I was forced to watch football every week. I am one of the few football haters who can actually watch a game and know what is going on. Case point: Again, I was forced to watch a game (outnumbered in a vote) and I basically grumbled throughout the game. The quarterback was sacked and I said, "Oh that's a touchback". The others in the room started to argue with me that it wasn't until the announcer said, "It's a touchback." They all looked at me and said, "How did you know that?"

MJ's Dad always wanted him to play baseball when he was a kid.  He was proud of his son as a basketball player, but that was a dream of his-to see his son play baseball.  So after his Dad died, he tried it as a tribute to him.  No, he wasn't any good at it, but he gave it a shot for his Dad.  That's why- just to honor his Dad's memory. He knew he would never be as good at that as he was in basketball.

                                                                                                         >:( >:( >:( >:(




What is with this jerk!!??!  I know MJ did it, but he was a successful contributor to his team when he came back!  All Favre did was whine and complain on his grand return.  I was sick of his negotiations the first time around before he graced us with the Jets for ONE lousy season.  "Which team loves me more?  Who is willing to sell their soul for ME?"   WHY BOTHER!!?     Because he's an attention whore!!!!  Now here we go again...the Vikings are going to talk to him now?  OMG!!!!!



The latest Favre Fodder:

Brett Favre returning to NFL with the Vikings to spite Packers?

He should have millions in the bank, but all he has is hate and revenge in his black heart....

Watch out, I may say what I really think... ;) ;D

Yah, he wants to play with Minnesota. Do they want him? Is he going to falter badly again like he did in the 2nd half last year.
Did anyone in Minnesota watch any Jet football highlights in Nov/Dec 2008?
Can management in Minnesota spell "I-N-T-E-R-C-E-P-T-I-O-N"?

I think there should be a new rule:

If you un-retire and you SUCK, you should not be allowed to un-un-retire again.

I can't believe his fans were impressed with his half assed comeback.  If The Vikings sign him, (or any other foolish team) they deserve all the trouble that's coming to them.  I just hope the Cowboys don't fall under his evil spell if it doesn't work out with MN !!!



Gosh, I'm not following the advice of my own sig line am I?  I'm sure I should be nicer about Mr. Favre. After all, he's battling with having adoring fans, counting money every day......

MJ's Dad always wanted him to play baseball when he was a kid.  He was proud of his son as a basketball player, but that was a dream of his-to see his son play baseball.  So after his Dad died, he tried it as a tribute to him.  No, he wasn't any good at it, but he gave it a shot for his Dad.  That's why- just to honor his Dad's memory. He knew he would never be as good at that as he was in basketball.


The ESPN Sports Guy has a conspiracy theory that the so-called "retirement" and "baseball experiment" were because Jordan got banned for a while for gambling :D

I know he loves to gamble, but he never pulled a Charles Barkley on anyone.........  ;)  Honestly, I remember right after his Dad was killed that he had talked about how he wished he had tried baseball when his Dad was alive.  So maybe it was honor and regret that made him try, but seriously, I don't think the gambling had anything to do with it.  But conspiracy thories are fun sometimes.....I'm hatching one about Brett Favre right now..... ;)

I hear ya. My ex was SOOOOO into football (the Cleveland Browns  ::) ) and I was forced to watch football every week. I am one of the few football haters who can actually watch a game and know what is going on. Case point: Again, I was forced to watch a game (outnumbered in a vote) and I basically grumbled throughout the game. The quarterback was sacked and I said, "Oh that's a touchback". The others in the room started to argue with me that it wasn't until the announcer said, "It's a touchback." They all looked at me and said, "How did you know that?"

Not yet, but if Brad Childress is as dumb as I think he may be, Favre will be wearing a Vikings uniform for half of this season before he stomps off and retires again.  Is he just out to see how many different uniforms he can put his name on or what?

Childress was supposed to fly down to meet Favre today to discuss a deal.  What an idiot.  Childress has stars in his eyes when all Favre wants to do is get on another team, beat everyone down on it, drag the team down, and walk away all in the name of going  :P at the Packers. 

Why can't he just go slip away quitely under some rock somewhere and STAY retired?

So now the story is that xrays of Favre's shoulder have gone to the Vikings-turns out he didn't want to share his big comeback news on the same day as Manny Ramirez' suspension.  If the Vikings say he needs major surgery he'll stay retired, but if it's not a big deal, he'll suit up with the Vikings after all.  His manager says he has had no hand in this at all.  He's either lying or Favre is going around him, which is a pretty underhanded thing to do, oh wait, I am talking about favre, so it makes sense.

ESPN's reporter said Favre didn't want to break the news the same day as Ramirez' suspension because he wants to be the ONLY big news the day it comes out.  I'm actually hoping that the Vikings take a pass after getting his hopes up and that they would only take him after the major surgery.....that would serve him right.

So it is still a possibility that the jerk will play this season!  I'm sick of this soap opera.... ::)

I can't believe I'm saying this but maybe I don't have to despise Tony Stewart as much I do-it kills me to even say that!!

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — NASCAR driver Tony Stewart is donating bulletproof, stab-proof vests to police dogs in five states.
Stewart, a Columbus, Ind., native, donated the money to provide 30 vests for the Indiana State Police K-9 unit and 10 for police dogs waiting for vests in Georgia, New Mexico, North Carolina and Minnesota.

Susie Jean of Socorro, N.M., requested a grant from the Tony Stewart Foundation for vests for the 14 dogs currently in the Indiana State Police unit. Stewart upped the amount to cover more vests upon learning the state police unit was expanding to 30 dogs. The vests cost $895 each, according to information provided by the foundation, meaning 40 vests would total more than $35,000.

Jean founded Vest 'N P.D.P. (Police Dog Protection) Inc., a nonprofit that collects donations to purchase bullet- and stab-proof vests for police dogs. So far, the nonprofit has provided 169 vests to police dogs in 22 states, not including the Stewart donation.

"Police work dogs give everything they have in the service of mankind. How nice it is to be able to give them something in return," state police Superintendent Paul Whitesell said in a statement issued jointly Monday by the Tony Stewart Foundation and state police.

I don't really have a favorite team I used to like the Cincinnati Reds growing up in the 70's, but haven't watched them in years. My mom used to be a big Red Sox fan so I kinda cheer for them.


KARMA for you!

I missed this when it was first posted, but I agree with it as well! I, too, cheer for anyone that plays against the Yankes, and this year that will certainly include the Phils when the World Series opens tomorrow.

NCAA football:
Miami
Texas
USC

In the NFL:
Washington in the '70's-'80's, but they've been so pitiful for the last 18 years that I almost feel sorry for them today
Pittsburgh since 1974
San Fran since 1980
Philly since 1986
I root for any team playing these, or the one with the worse record if playing each other.

No player comes to mind that I've despised, as most braggart loudmouths settle down with age, but I could never stomach Buddy Ryan. If he wasn't bad mouthing his head coach in Chicago, he was punching a fellow assistant in Houston or allegedly placing rewards for injuring opponents while in Philly. The curtain was lifted on him and his mouth in Arizona and I no longer must watch him step up to any microphones. The 46 had been had by then.

The Philadelphia Phillies (generally)-along with their entire pitching staff and Ryan Howard (specifically). Also don't care for Albert Pujols. Not sure why.

I can understand somebody hating Miami in college football I mean with the Miami players doing their acts(hot dogging) in the late 80's/early 90's. You would never find college football top programs of that era like Nebraska, Michigan, Notre Dame, Penn State, Colorado, or Florida doing that kind of stuff.

I can't think of a college program I hate more than USC. Arrogance, undeserved accolades, and now, NCAA violations abound.

Team...Pittsburgh Stealers!

Player...LeButthead James!

Why?

The Pittsburgh Stealers just seem to dominate not only the division that The "Browns" are in...but the AFC and in a way the NFL.

And LeButthead for making the dumbest move to move to Miami and try to win it all and blowing it in the NBA Finals.
