The Top Five Players I Hate Because of the Media
It happens to all of us.
We're watching ESPN, and they go on and on about how great one player is.
Then we realize, wow, this guy is really annoying.
They cover them a little bit too much (Favre), they glorify them, and to quote Dennis Green they "crown their asses".
Then they start gushing over everything they do, they talk about how they brushed their teeth and who they’re currently dating.
It starts to manifest into the hatred of the guy for nothing they ever did.
Here’s my list of the athletes the media has caused us to hate the most. Enjoy.
No. 5- Luke Harangody
Yeah, yeah Harangody's a good player, but is he really "National Player of the Year?" No.
Players like DeJuan Blair should be there, not some guy who led his team to seven straight losses.
No. 4- Manny Ramirez
Manny himself is annoying, but the coverage of him is even more annoying.
Ramirez, everyday, except for one day this offseason was rejecting another Dodger offer.
And instead of calling him selfish and stupid, the media said, "that's just Manny Being Manny."
They should be treating him like they are Alex Rodriguez.
Or even Terrell Owens, who they call a “team killer” and a “cancer in the locker room”.
No. 3- Tyler Hansbrough
Yes, “Psycho-T” is immensely talented, but is all the coverage really necessary?
I mean, I’m just waiting for ESPN to show him brushing his teeth or taking out the trash.
The kid is in college, and, just like Harangody, does not require that much attention from the national media.
No. 2- Terrell Owens
Yeah, most of ESPN hates the guy, but as long as they allow Stephen A. Smith to talk about T.O., he still deserves to be here.
No. 1 Brett Favre
The silent cancer, the silent me guy.
Favre is T.O. only he doesn’t go in front of the media to complain—he has his family do that for him.
Last offseason’s saga was only the tip of the iceberg.
All of the game announcers and John Madden love every little thing he does, from the simple two-yard pass to the scramble and throw.
The media’s love affair with Favre will never end. He’ll always be ESPN and the rest of the media’s favorite “student”.
