8. Phil Mickelson-Asshole? Uhh, I doubt that! He probably refused an interview with the SMUG-Zine.

i agree but it's hard to argue about anyone who did make the list.

Good list, interesting anecdotes. But, um ... is a Bassmaster an ATHLETE?

Oh really? I am trying to think of how someone could find a lot wrong with Phil. Please tell me what you have.

Seems like Bonds should have beaten out TO. He's the biggest prick in sports since Ty Cobb.

Fair.

I just remember when he won the big tounament, he was extra gracious and was not the least bit arrogant or expecting. Kind of honored. Seems like a good guy all around to me. Damned Smug-a-zine's!

I've seen him on TV before, he does act like a jackass.

From what I have heard he is not the same around other players and PGA officials as he is with fans. He apparently is a complete ass around them.

Followed him at the Bell South Classic as well as his career HE is not an asshole and I have never seen any occasion where he wasn't a gentleman. Lots of envy follow when you are Top Ten or so in the world. The true assholes seldom get recognized see Roger Clemmons and Barry Bonds and OJ Simpson etc.

ROFL

No, really he would catch a fish, and then jump up and down like he'd won the powerball, yell and point at the fish, flop around on the boat like a fish, etc. I wondered if the guy was on meth or something.

I have always liked him as well. He is great with fans and the media but that doesn't mean that he is the same way behind the scenes with PGA officials and other players.

Im glad Barry Bonds is number 2. Hes a close 2nd, I hate him with a passion.

I thought it was interesting that the spin on their list was how the player's contemporaries viewed them. Almost no one talks bad about other players in their sport (as it should be) but you just know that some people are just obnoxious asses around their coworkers.


Oh, and Barry Bonds is crap, no doubt.

I also heard a similar story about Phil, a while ago. Something about eating doritos in someone's backswing and they were pissed off.

Elway always seemed like the kind of player that his teammates could hate easy. I don't know that to be true and winning can be a powerful salve but I have long wondered what others player's opinions of Elway were.

You watch Marino on HBO's show and you see what happens when you allow bitterness to take your life over.

That guy is an INSANE asshole...

Marino's an asshole? I guess I don't get that really but I can tell that he is upset over not getting a ring as well as the way everyone refers to him and his career. The best QB to never get a ring and such.

He's the classic example of a guy screaming (I mean shouting) at his WR's and O line.

When we played the Dolphins (when Joe was QB, pretty sure it was 94) Dan was shouting and spitting and....it was nuts.

They won, but you thought it was for fear Dan would have them all incinerated if they didn't...
