The guy gets into it with everybody, fans included. Also somewhat surprised not to see David Beckham on the list. For as many people that adore him, there are at least as many who hate him.


nobody likes soccer :-t


Given the option of watching fishing or soccer, I'd choose soccer in a heartbeat.

Coppermine wrote:06. Michael Iocanelli, Fishing : This is the one that's getting most attention for a few reasons. One is that he's a bass fisherman, and last I checked, anglers aren't really athletes. Apparently in the southern-conservative sport of fishing, this Jersey-ite yells and swears at the fish. Sounds like just the thing bass fishing needs; to bad I still don't watch it.

How can this guy bother anyone. I mean who is around to hear him yell at the fish? If this guy is on there why not Pete Weber?

Hrmm suprisingly AROD isn't on there. He's one of my favorites, but I know a lot of people aren't to keen on the Yankees and he's about the biggest target on the team. I guess we know now there aren't any Cafe users at GQ.

I'd rather watch fishing for 10 hours than soccer for 10 minutes. But hey, that's just me.

And Mook, why all the hate for Zo? I've actually always liked and rooted for the guy. But then again, Rodman is probably my all-time favorite NBA player, so maybe I'm a little off... :-b


kid wonderful would definitely get my vote. :-)

i agree with mook about mourning...urgh! :-P i actually liked him a while back when i still cared about the NBA. yes, i did care, long time ago. :*)

no hockey guys in the list? how about daniel alfredsson? :-b

I can see bonds #1 though he's a tool bag


I agree with both statements, I kind of like to see what T.O. will do next and it kind of intrigues me. His play on the field blows me away and I watch him every time I get the chance to. Although I just drafted Bonds on my team, He's still done some pretty ridiculous things in his career and deserves #1.. ;-D

After his kidney surgery the Nets showed faith in him and gave him a 4 year $6M/yr contract. When the Nets started doing poorly he demanded a trade. Then he started criticizing the team for weeks on end he was just the biggest jerk until they finally traded him.

He was traded to the Raptors for Vince Carter. For Mourning this was going from bad to worse and he refused to show up. Not only did he not play he never even came to Canada. His excuse was that he was medically unfit to play but he also refused to retire and took up a lot of cap room. So he refused to play and he refused to retire and demanded that the Raptors buy him out. The Raptors were stupid and paid him $10M to buy out his contract. Of course one week later he is miraculously healthy again and signs with the Miami Heat and has been averaging about 7 pppg, 5 rpg and about 2.5 bpg.

This guy makes TO look like mother Theresa.
Absolute ass :-t :-t :-t
