Texas Rangers: 10 Biggest Controversies in Team History
Although he speaks very little English, evidently he can understand it just fine.

If you're like me, when you think of sports in Texas—the DFW area specifically—you probably don't think of the Texas Rangers when the word "controversy" pops up.

I mean, Terrell Owens, in his brief stint as a Cowboy, put on a veritable clinic on contention—a "who's who" of hurrah, if you will.

If I was writing about the Dallas Cowboys, I could probably come up with fifteen controversial moments from that horrible fourth quarter loss to the Jets on Sunday night alone.

Fortunately, I'm writing about the Texas Rangers instead.  

Sure I love the Cowboys, but it's a complex relationship—equal parts mutually beneficial as well as indignantly destructive—much like an acid-reflux sufferer and their antacid of choice, with the Cowboys being my source of discomfort.   

Believe it or not, the Texas Rangers have had their fair share of controversy since they moved from the nation's capital, to Arlington (not Virginia), Texas, back in 1972.  

Here's my personal top ten most controversial moments in the history of the Texas Rangers—if I missed one, please feel free to add via my comments box.
