For the most part, athletes are a pretty respectable lot. This is mostly out of necessity, as the public eye is on them pretty much all the time. Under such circumstances, normal people like you and I would probably crumble.
Naturally, there are exceptions to the rule, as there have been plenty of athletes through the years who have been downright disrespectful to other athletes, officials, fans, announcers, and a whole manner of other people.
Of course, athletes also have to put up with a lot of crap from other people as well. Sometimes they handle it well, and sometimes they don't. And then there are times when they get way more crap than they deserve, and somehow prove capable of taking it.
Yes sir, disrespect comes in many forms when it comes to athletes. As such, the following slideshow probably only scratches the surface when it comes to the biggest athlete disses in sports.
