Biggest Jerk Athletes
The Top Ten
Rude in every interview. So self-centered, petulant, total cry-baby. Works as a great role model for my ten year old son - model of what not to turn out like. Also a great model for my daughter for what to avoid. Great golfer, loser human being.
Forget what a D bag he obviously is... Tiger is not half the golfer Jack Nicklaus was. Compare total performance in majors, not just victories where he still clearly falls short. He also has all the signs of steroid use. Look at pictures of his head and physique when in college and early in his pro career, then look at his body change over time. Reminds me of Barry Bonds...only not a real athlete as he is just a golfer!
Would not stand with women golfers Augusta exclusion.
Drug use, womanizer with two small children. Cashes in
on his "brand" name to hock anything, but now wants
privacy. Total, complete jerk who can hit a stationary
ball. Big deal!
Tainted individual playing the most useless sport ever.V 27 Comments
I live in Pittsburgh, which hosted the Thrift Drug Classic back in the early 90s. Lance won it in 92 and 93 and each time he visited the city stories would abound of his arrogant behavior. I chalked it up to youth and bravado, but over the years his attitude just got worse and worse until, at his peak, he had developed "the look", a cold, obnoxious, "f*** you" stare which spoke volumes about his character. Doping? Of course he doped; we all know that now. But it's not the doping that makes him a jerk: it's his attitude and the callous way he destroyed the careers and reputations of anyone who got in his way. He has proven himself worse than a fraud and a cheat: he has proven himself to be a hypocritical, arrogant, sociopathic bully who deserves to be forgotten.
What makes Lance the biggest Jerk athlete of all time isn't the certainty that he cheated his way to the podium his entire career, but the fact that he threw everyone but the kitchen sink under the bus in the process. Read the USADA deposition- on numerous occasions Lance threatened and bullied other riders, team members and even their significant others to keep his "pristine" reputation. The man has no class.
I saw him in one of my race events when I raced mountain bikes near Temple, TX in 1998. He was there racing also right after his first TDF win. Biggest jerk to his Texas fans. Didn't say anything to anyone and stated in his RV the entire time when I was there. In his race right before he crossed the finish line the announcer said here comes Lance in first place. He crossed the line and kept riding straight to his RV and got off his bike, went in, and never came out.
Should be #1. Tiger may be a prick, an egotistical jerk, and a horrible cheating husband and boyfriend, but only Lance organized a doping ring, bullied and harassed many, and was astoundingly arrogant about the whole thing. He was a mobster basically.V 21 Comments
cry baby, loudmouth jerk...needs to just quit football because he destroys every team he goes to...i'm afraid he'll go to my favorite team and destroy them. - jwileson
if I were quarterback for this dude id pee myself. one bad throw and he would tear me a new one.
also, how is tiger woods mean? just wondering - athilos
hE HAS BROUGHT BAD LUCK TO EVERY TEAM THAT HE HAS PLAYED FOR. HE IS ONE HELL OF A DUMB ASS - ginn19
He's a me,myself, and I type of a person. A self centered jackass. He cares only about himself. A legend in his own mind.V 5 Comments
Lebron has every call go his way, every time he drives to the basket if he does not score he is crying to the refs. Every timeout he spends more time crying to the refs than he does in the team huddle. He fouls ferociously on defense yet is never whistled for a foul. He has great talents, but when they are losing he often fouls to hurt. Tried to push Livingston several rows into the stands against Golden State in 2015 finals. Flops like a fish and finally had to pay the price when he flopped into a camera man and cut his head. When he wins, it is all about Lebron leading the team then when he loses, he wants to leave or blame the team. He sucks, for all the talent and steroid strength he has. He turns the ball over more than Jason Couch in bowling, and he is supposed to be a better passer than Magic?
He never gets calls, he literally pushes and shoves his way to the basket, he's rude, especially to the other teams, he got Green booted because his feelings got hurt, never mind that James practically sat on Green, he pouts and sulks sitting on the bench when his team is behind. James runs his mouth about how he's better than Michael Jordan (Air Jordan) and he will never, ever be the player that Michael Jordan was, ever, he's a baby, he will never have Jordan's leadership or class. Stephen Curry has more class and natural talent in his pinkie than James has in his entire body.
PED's most likely... Never 100 percent certainty but the glove seems to fit and with his God given talent to begin with... Enough said...
His Jawline and skull seem to have changed radically. I have known enough medicine cases to wonder..
To quote Grant Hill, "nobody in the Olympics wanted to be the high scorer because that meant they might be drug tested.. HA!
How is Lebron James a jerk? he's the greatest NBA player of all time - venomouskillingmachineV 19 Comments
This guy is the most arrogant jerk in sports history. He surpasses Ty Cobb for meanness, he passes Kobe for arrogance, and he passes Tiger Woods for his lies.
He's close enough to the all-time HR record he doesn't have to cheat to break it now. Lots of folks may not recognize him now when they see him play. He's slimmed down a bit from not using HGH. The Giants also had to order new caps for him that are a little smaller. - soy10ley
This Guy not only used steroids and lied about it but is a jerk to reporters. come on talking to reporters is part of the game - wolffwalker
Stayed at the same hotel as he did, NY 2003. Was completely demeaning to the staff.V 3 Comments
I live in Philly and was sickened when the Eagles signed him. He is nothing but a sociopath and only repented because he wanted to return to football after being in prison. wish he could experience the torture he inflicted on those poor defenseless dogs. and guess what- he has a dog now.
He should be in jail for the rest of life. He should feel the same pain those helpless dogs felt. It disgusts me that any team would hire him. I feel so badly for the dog he has now. I can imagine the life that poor dog has. Michael Vick disgusts me.
Wow, seriously guys. Michael Vick killed and had dogs fight just for EVEN MORE MONEY. What did Tiger Woods do? Nothing that I know of. - Pjk110
No respect for anyoneV 14 Comments
This man has absolutely no sympathy especially to the rookies, if they strikeout on their debut he just tell him that he sucks and angrily says "Sit Down! "
This guy threw his pitching coach Don Zimmer to the ground. And did I mention that Zimmer was 72 YEARS OLD.
Meet him in 05 in chicago while I qas working as a bellman for a hotel, witness how he told a 10 year old kid who asked for a autograph to get lost and he acts like a diva..
Pedro is a Goat Human met the many serval times he's a class act but he's fisty and aggressive when it comes to the game called having passion... Pedro name shouldn't even be on this list.
Gets away with raping a petite woman at a nightclub while his 2 bodyguards block the bathroom. Read that his own players on his team thinks he is arrogant and don't hang out with him. Goes to local Pittsburgh restaurants after winning the Super Bowl and MONTHS later STILL expects not to pay for his meals.
Never minded the Steelers prior to him. Would root for them occasionally, depending on who they were playing. Now I root for them in every game to lose. Even if my team loses, still feels like a winning week, if Pittsburgh loses too.
After decades of my support, the Steelers are no longer my favorite team because him.
Biggest idiot in the NFL.. hos coach isn't far behindV 5 Comments
Small town moron still pushing supplements not a true football player disgrace to the game and no respect from others in the league latest comments on stopping cam prove same old Romo mentality
This guy sickens me. He was a horribly dirty player. On top of that he injected live goat cells into himself to get stronger. Disgusting
He admitted to playing dirty after retiring. He didn't have sportsmanship, only brutality. It was perfect that he ended up playing with the Raiders
There's a fine line between playing hard, and trying to maim someone. I hope he never gets in the Hall of Fame. - DarrellV 2 Comments
This murder should be kicked out of the hall of fame, his football pension taken away. He is a disgraceful human being.
Still won't accept responsibility for murdering Nicole & Ron
Wait, hold on a sec. Michael Vick is #6 on this list for being involved in dog fighting and killing a few pit bulls? OJ whacks his ex wife and a friend (human beings, not dogs) and he is 9? This guy is the worst type of human. I have a lot of respect for Ron Goldman's. I would have killed that SOB 20 times over by now.
No-brainer, OJ should be #1. - truckturnerV 16 Comments
A-Rod is a cheater and is full of him self and used steroids, and is overpaid and I don't like him either. But he does sign autographs now and is trying to change his image. I got his autograph is Toronto and he not an ass in person as much as I thought he'd be
love the way he plays but i hate the way he acts you dont have to curse on a groundout on a 4-5 day
Ruined the sport of baseball with his cheating and skewed stats.
How is he below Pedro Martinez? - hank147V 1 Comment
This guy is a psychopath lol - Spyrofan35
Just this morning Kobe refused to take a picture with my 8 year old son who idolizes him. I'm speechless. Me and my wife had come up with some explanation why he did that. We live in Irvine California.
Why rape a girl if you can get anyone you want... Dumbass kobe
Could not be more arrogant. possessed?
Was on the all star team and didn't deserve it. Should have stepped down years ago. Doesn't even show up if games when he's injured. I'm sure his team mates were happy to se him go.V 7 Comments
This guy pushes little old ladies while at the supermarket when they get the last box of Bagel Bites
It's all about Randy just ask him. Great player when he wants to play if the play is his.
Straight cash homie! Ha he can be a jerk but you can't deny how good he is. - hands16
Evidently most everything we all know about Ty Cobb was put forth by one man, Al Stump, and most of it isn't true. Don't believe me? Look for a Freakonomics podcast called Legacy of a Jerk. They interview an author working on a new book about this very thing and he's done the research, he's able to dispel a few of the biggest rumors about Cobb right on the spot. Turns out they are made up out of whole cloth - by Al Stump - who profited greatly after Cobb passed. You've been had, people.
u people r weird this guy would come and dive into the second place bag spikes high he would even sharpen his spikes
At his funeral, I heard that only 4 people attended it
Actually,The groundskeeper he beat up was actually a white dude who spit on him.Its Al Sharp who makes him look like a jerk.V 3 Comments
Would run to a liquor store at halftime and drink
That fight with the Pacers says it all.
People, this butt ugly dude is just mean and weird.
One of the strangest human beings on earth. Thinks hanging out with a madman in North Korea is cool. Will do anything for attention.
Complete Freak, druggy, thug!
Extremely rude to... well everyone. The way he talks to umpires and the press and even fans is just horrible not the way an athlete or at least a respected athlete should act.
He sucks and he knows it, can't beat the big boys so he has been reduced to a hissy fit throwing pansy
Is just bitter that he will forever be remembered as Mr. Brooklyn Decker
Absolute idiot. Not only does he rack up penalty minutes and is near the top every year, he consistently has the most penalty minutes AGAINST him. He trash talks, fights only when the other guy is smaller than him, and breaks/bends the rules. He even had a rule made for him - Malorian
He deserves to be number 1. He isn't higher only because nobody cares about hockey. - aman28
He is really funny to watch but is an idiot. Just watch videos of him and you'll see why he's an idiot - 19ROXX
Should be #1 but not enough people care about hockey
And to think, some thought he should be drafted ahead of Peyton Manning. Even more funny is he went #2...
Biggest flop in history. I hate thieves
He had HIGH attitude problems - jareddike
He should be one own this list he was a addict and a murdder
Always arrogant, always a jerk.. To the media, fans.. Hell, coaches, players. Biggest Clown there ever was. He was selfish, cared only for his homerun stats.. Even if it meant winning a world series. Decided not to come to his MVP gala in 1988. But.. I'd have to say. Between him and Barry Bonds.. They both were a pair. Difference was.. Bonds could play.
Took roads and then snitched on all the other players
I meant roids not roads autocorrect
Horrible person. all about pete. name anyone who ever liked him.
He’s been accused of groping someone, and he’s a complete butt wipe, too. - railfan99
I'm an orioles fan he played there for 2 years advice don't be near him when he is mad
Just look at his history I won't need to say anything.
If you are a woman, make sure not to ask this guy any questions. You don't want to know what he wants in exchange for an answer.
If he cant win he bites your ear off, sore loser. Oh and he is well overated1
Mike Tyson gets a pass from me. He came up thru extremely difficult situations in life and people have taken advantage of him all his life. Only Cus D'amato gave a damn about him as a human being. He did his time for whatever happened with the girl that went to his room (expecting milk & cookies? ) and never whined about it. He seems like he's trying to do something with his life after boxing and dirtbags like King are done with him...
How is this below John Cena? John Cena is a very good person! - 445956V 2 Comments
Needs to learn how to pronounce his own name.
I've met him he actually a pretty good person very humble
Sending unsolicited pictures of your unit to attractive women you meet is always a good move...ask Congressman Weiner...V 2 Comments
My son was on set producing a Go Daddy commercial and asked for an autograph for me. She responded with "Am I obligated to? All you people think you are entitled to my autograph."
Very unpleasant person and terrible to her fans when the cameras are not rolling. Went to ask her for a autographed and she responded I Quote """DOES IT LOOK LIKE I AM IN THE MOOD""" the following day I handed her the diescast back and told her she could keep them. I wish more people knew the true DANICA!
I heard a radio interview before she hit NASCAR and she was the most condescendingly rude person I've ever heard. The radio station hung up on her and spent rest of her interview time discussing what a jerk she was. Arrogant doesn't begin to describe this girl.
The only reason she is not higher is because she is not as famous as the other athletes mentioned. But she is cold, rude, and unable to laugh at herselfV 5 Comments
Over-rated, coddled and over-hyped. Has an excuse for every failure.
Just don't know and don't care. Who watches women's golf?
Harper is one heck of a ballplayer, but the kid is 22 and he already thinks he is the boss of baseball when clearly he is not, it is Miguel Cabrera
How can anyone say that the record holder for the most Make A Wish wish's granted is a jerk. He has given his time and effort to personally counsel and support over 450 sick children in the Make A Wish program. He doesn't just right a check and call it a day, he meets with these children personally and makes their life worth living. The people who think he is a jerk are those who get too caught up in wrestling to realize it's fake. He is an actor and an athlete, and is told how to act and what to say. Whether u like him or not, there is no denying that he is one of the most charitable athletes in sports, and the fact that he is on this list is appalling.
Best person in the world my ass
Not a wrestling fan, but he seems to be a good person based off one of the comments on this item. - Skullkid755
John Cena is a nice funny guy! People overlook him just because he is a wrestler 🤼♂️. And based on the other people who commented, I think people like him. But, you can have your opinionsV 4 Comments
"23 to 17? OK! Well, Plaxico is playing defense is he? 23 to 17? Ha Ha Ha Ha! I wish he would have said something like 45 to 42! At least give us a little more credit than that to score points!", scoffs Tom Brady before the Super Bowl with the Giants. Well guess what? You only scored 14! Ha Ha Ha - 669606b
I cannot attest to who he is personally, but based on his conduct on the field and his comments off I do not like him. I get that he wants to win and that's great, but throwing tantrums durring a game because a call doesn't go your way, especially when you are winning, is deplorable. Also the picture he posted on his Facebook account of him riding the bronco was tasteless.
Tom Brady is an arrogant SOB, I can't stand him or his coach. He wish he would blow out his other knee
He should be 1 this guy is a retardV 26 Comments
A PERFECT match for the Cowboys General Manager.
He is the biggest ahole in sports period... My son tried to get his autograph in san diego 3 times after game he waited for jeter and got close enough to ask him and jeter told him no, there was people and security around my son understood him saying no at this point. My son spots him walking down the street with someone what are the odds no one else around runs up to jeter and jeter says no it too late. Deter should be at the top of the list
The sad part about this jerk is that he'll go down as on of the greatest Yankees in history. Doesn't even belong with Mantle, Gehrig, DiMaggio and Ruth.
Simply not that good a player... CAN'T pull the ball. not that good a fielder. friend of ass rod until he got in trouble. lucky he played with lots of winners. oh, and a cheater. more than once I have seen him feign getting hit by the ball as a batter. don't care what anyone says... Not the way to play
Jeter is a jerkV 7 Comments
He Threw his bat at an A's pitcher - Htown3ball
He sucks and swallows ads choackes
No one has anything to say about "Moron Deon"? He's obnoxious, but thankfully seems to have worked himself out of T.V.. We are not forced to listen to his drivel much these days. Now if we can just get rid of Michael Irvin... What language is he speaking?
This arrogant jerk should be at the top of the list. At least he is also a whining cry baby when he loses - blaming anything or anyone instead of himself. At least we won't have to suffer him long - he thinks he is also an elite running back and does the old "ego sneak" every other play. Defensive players consider him a trophy - he will be the next Robert Griffin - a physically broken journeyman looking for a team once he is used up. Naturally it won't be his legendary arrogance that causes him to fail - it is because he is black. After all he is the only black player in the NFL if you listen to him. Zero redeeming qualities - his last day in the NFL will be a great day.
Just because you are good at a sport or think you are good doesn't give you any right to be a arrogent, classless, punk jerk! Your athletic ability will only take you so far or last so long. However, having integrity and being humble will last you a lifetime and take your career to greater heights.
I watched the playoff game with Seattle and although the Panthers won the game, I found the arrogant behavior of their star quarterback to be absolutely classless. His attitude should move him way up on the list of biggest jerk athletes.
Biggest self-centered jerk in the NFL. I actually feel sorry for his teammates.V 26 Comments
Just flat out annoying like the things he says is not even interesting he's like the little kid at gym who is a ball hog and thinks he's better then everyone but he's actually just a little bitch that no one likes
Tells Clyde Drexler he should have "told it to his face". Writes book 20 years later and back stabs his best friend Isiah Thomas, doesn't tell him to his face. Yer, he should be higher on this list. Just because he has a smile that melts your grandmothers heart, he's the type of guy that robs her whilst doing it.
Magic Johnson, while obviously an NBA great, still embodies the stereotypical self-centered superstar, and feels the need to throw his own name into the discussion any time the GOAT is debated.
He rode mike dantonis ass since he got the job, for the sole reason he wasn't Phil Jackson. Dantoni had nothing to work with on that lakers team, and when mike tried to resign with some dignity, magic johnson danced on his grave via twitter 30 minutes later. Tough guy there... What an ass
Back in the day when I was a teenager I snuck back near the locker room after a laker game.. just kinda milled around.. out comes Magic, girl on each arm.. he saw me and another guy as we lit up.. Magic told the girls to stay up and came over and shook our hands.. That was all I was looking for.. Sure he wouldv'e signed anything I asked... Now one of the girls may have been Cookie for all I know, too young to care... So then I go running out of the old tunnel at the forum that leads to to the parking lot to tell my friends who are waiting, they couldn't believe it... couple minutes later as it starts to drizzle we're still standing there and I believe it was an Jeep Cherokee or something.. anyway.. Magic driving rolls down the window shakes my buddies hands says a few words and drives off... That's showtime. , Maybe the Aids cocktails have changed him a bit, I wouldn't know, but that day he lived up to his name... Also Tom Cruise... the time at a kings game he's leaving with nicole ...moreV 1 Comment
Plays like a 1 year hold - Realgamer_3002
Stratford his career in baltimore he is not a jerk
Did you hear his whining after he lost to the Bills?! Total Denial--no credit given to the Bills. Blamed it on Bill getting away with defensive physicality "They slowed us down a LITTLE" -- "They was no pass rush"---was he there for his last play? And in an interview before the game when he was informed of the fact that the Packers have never won in Buffalo---his response was :
"I'm not concerned about it... It'll be great to be a part of the first win in Buffalo, I guess," Rodgers said, according to Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
He disowned his family because fame got to his head. They mailed him Christmas gifts trying to be nice. He just mailed them back..
Cocky, arrogant and probably washed up. He's like a super nova who shines brightly and then fizzles out.
He's an ass, ask his family and friends.V 3 Comments

Wait, you met Usain Bolt?! What an honor! Why is he on this list?
My boy bolt is a good guy
Another steroid fake...his accomplishments, like McGuire's and Bond's don't count. Although Bonds would have been an all-star without steroids, he just wouldn't have broken all-time records.
I'm an orioles fan only played there for one year st the back end of his career what a career
Because of this dude
I hate the orioles
