The NFL is filled with talent and skill.
It's also filled with superstars and high-profile players; big-name players who grace our TV screens every Sunday with spectacular athleticism and unbelievable talent.
When they take the field, the crowd roars or boos, depending where you're at.
Fans expect to see entertainment at it's finest.
However, some of these athletes take their popularity too far. They create a mess for themselves and the league. Ultimately, it gets old and just plain annoying.
Yes, I speak of the Drama Queen. The players who need the spotlight all the time. The players who think the world revolves around them.
So take a look here, at just some of the many Drama Queens that try to make their names bigger than the NFL!
Please enjoy and feel free to comment! No comment will be rejected, and no answer is a wrong answer!
Why not start off with the guy who invented the phrase Drama Queen?
T.O.: The guy is good at what he does. Plays good football, celebrates in the end zone, does sit-ups in his driveway with the media watching, causes drama in the locker room, gets booted off teams.
Okay, let's face the facts: Terrell Owens is a ticking time bomb waiting to explode. If he's not happy, the rest of your team won't be happy. He's been with three teams already—all of which have moved on with out him.
The baggage he carries is too much to handle.
He hurts the locker room atmosphere and needs the ball 24/7. How long can he survive with the Buffalo Bills? Or how long can the Buffalo Bills endure T.O.?
"Gettcha popcorn ready!"
Chad Johnson, or Ochocinco, is the creator of the perfect end zone dance. The guy is an entertainer and always challenging defenders to try and beat him.
This guy is in love with himself and it doesn't look like that will be changing anytime soon. Chad changed his name to "Ochocinco" to match his No. 85 he wears with the Cincinnati Bengals.
The NFL makes money off his fines alone.
I liken him to the Bart Simpson of the NFL. He's always challenging the league with new ways to celebrate, whether it's dropping a river dance on the end zone, golfing with a football, wearing a future Hall of Famer jacket, or controlling an expensive camera.
He doesn't care about getting into trouble, just as long as Chad is happy doing it. This guy is trouble for any team!
Chad Ochocinco wants the ball, and wants it a LOT! If he's not happy, you will hear about it on the sidelines.
Chad is all about Chad. But Chad is however, some good 'ol entertainment for us football fans.
Keep on dancin' Chad!
Some consider this future Hall of Fame Quarterback to be the King of Drama when it comes to the NFL.
Brett Favre has been known for his gutsy throws and cannon arm. They know him for "Mr. Comeback" when a game is on the line. As much as I can't deny he's a good quarterback, it's his decision making that creates the drama.
For the past four years or so, Brett has had a tough time deciding if he wanted to retire from the NFL or not. These last two seasons were no different, except a whole lot more messy and uglier.
Brett retired from the Green Bay Packers, but then got an "itch" to play again. He tried forcing himself back in with the Packers, but they moved on to a younger guy.
After an ending with Green Bay, he found himself in another green jersey, only this was a different shade of green.
Now in 2009, he has a chance to play for the Minnesota Vikings. Is he joining? Would Favre give you a straight up answer?
Not on your life! He loves the spotlight, and until he is ready to give it up, he will do anything to keep it on him.
Will the Favre soap opera ever end?!
This young, talented quarterback knows how to rub people the wrong way. Or maybe it's them that rub him?
Whatever it is, Jay Cutler has become a drama queen in the NFL. After hearing reports that his new head coach wanted to trade him for Matt Cassel, Cutler felt betrayed.
So how'd he get back?
He decided to be a baby about it, having a little temper tantrum and whined. Telling the media he wasn't happy with the new boss, Cutler demanded a trade because of a business rumor.
I don't think Cutler gets it. It's the NFL and it's a business. Get over it!
But he didn't, and they traded him to the Chicago Bears.
Good job Jay, you got what you wanted. Instead of playing in Mile High you get to play in the Windy City.
And the wide receivers? Well maybe he'll complain about that too.
Watch out for this drama kid in training. He's sure to whine and fuss his way out the door.
Besides catching touchdown passes from Eli Manning and pissing off his coach, Burress likes to go to night clubs and shoot himself in the leg.
Plaxico, was released this off season from the New York Giants after he shot himself in the leg with a gun he was carrying in his pocket.
OK, I know players like to get attention, but Burress this is not the best way.
For a decent wide receiver, he sure isn't smart off the field. This guy has now made front page news just by shooting himself.
I think he did it to get attention and a new team. Maybe he is pretty smart after all. Now you have to survive trial and hope there is a team willing to take a "SHOT" with you!
C'mon Plax, it's all in good fun!
Michael Vick: The guy took Atlanta by storm and had adoring fans all over the nation. But in one quick moment he threw it all away, just to make money off dog fighting.
Will he play in the NFL ever again? I don't know.
But for a QB who was more known for his running, he sure lost a lot of fans. Dog fighting is a serious issue and not the best way to get attention.
So, Vick, how was prison?
He has had more drama follow his name than an ice cream truck chased by children on a hot day. He still may have some talent left to play football in the NFL, but the key issue is can any team trust him?
This guy likes to strut his stuff, right into the bonehead zone.
Adam "Pacman" Jones maybe a solid defender but he is a big distraction on any NFL team. Jones always finds himself in some sort of trouble.
This most recent time was fighting the Dallas Cowboys bodyguard in a hotel bathroom.
If you have an urge to fight, at least take it outside. Roger Goodell has his hands full with this trouble maker way too often. He's been given plenty of chances to change, but he sneaks back to his old ways.
Goodell may have to consider a lifetime ban from the NFL for Mr. Jones. Just saying, for a troublemaker like him, it's an idea.
What does it take to get some serious prison time?
Donte' Stallworth wouldn't know the answer to that question. After he killed a man with his vehicle, the Cleveland Browns receiver only received 30 days in prison and hours of community service.
A slap on the wrist! Stallworth kills a man and doesn't get a tougher punishment?
Wow, NFL players are above the law.
Luckily, the NFL's image can't be damaged any more than it already is because Stallworth won't be seeing a football field anytime soon. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Stallworth indefinitely
Well, that sucks for you now doesn't it?
Maybe next time this drama queen will pay attention when he's driving.
