I know Junior Griffey was a bit of a dick when he was younger, my father had an experience with him on a plane.

re: Jerk athletes


Cobb had a prett rough life in general. His mom killed his dad. His dad didnt want him to play ball, told him not to come home a failure. Honestly Cobb respected his dad and his murder put a lot of bitterness inside him.

Juan Gonzalez is high on my personal list. Met him when I was about ten, which was 1998 when he was awesome, and he pretty much wouldn't give me the time of day. Tore down the life sized poster of him on my room after that one lol

If MJ's prime was nowadays, he would be under much more scrutiny and people would be able to see he is a lowlife jerk as a person. The media protected MJ's image like no other athlete of his time.

Don't forget about John Rocker.

You can make the case that his mouth destroyed his baseball career. He was never the same pitcher after the SI interview.

Of course MJ is a douche. To be that high up in the sports world I've always imagined you have to be a dick. This is would made him so great.

My pick: Bill Laimbeer. Duh.

No "kind of" about it. He was/is a prick.

Only difference is that the internet age was not in full swing yet during his career, and he had an amazing marketing machine. He came off as so extremely likeable and a role model. It's only been relatively recently that all of the dark stories about him have come to light.

He was definitely my favorite player in the 90s. Now I can't stand him. Nothing but a phony.
