There was such a great response to my last article about the top 10 crybabies, that I decided to expand it further and produce a list of the top 25 worst teammates.
Yes, there is a difference between the two.
A crybaby situation is just one one who balls and whines and is comparable to a spoiled little child.
A horrible teammate is even worse.
This is someone who goes above and beyond the spoiled athlete and has no regard for his teammates or the organization he plays for.
To him, his wants, needs, and feelings are the only thing that matter. He is similar to the spoiled athlete, but with a bit more narcissism thrown in for good measure.
There are some on this list you'll disagree with. That's to be expected. No two people have the same opinions and that's a good thing.
It would be a pretty boring world to live in if we all thought the same.
One automatic qualifier on the list is if a player attacked a teammate physically. Even if the guy did nothing else the rest of his career, if the dude punched out a teammate, he's on the list.
Also, even if a player is a good guy on the field, but off the field he's an ass, he's on the list.
The criteria is based on those who played from 1980 on. I chose that because the guys before played the game for reasons other than just money.
I had a hard time trying to find someone from the 70s or earlier who even qualified.
If you have one, comment below and let me know.
