Guys you refuse to own (1 Viewer)

After watching Thursday nights game, I decided that no matter how good Phillip Rivers may be, I will never own him. I just can't stand the guy. He's so arrogant and obnoxious.

Another guy I will never own is Steven Jackson. I think he may be the biggest ###### in the NFL.

Any guys who you won't own, even if they are studs?

 
Oh, and Chad Johnson, Ocho Cinco...whatever the heck he is calling himself. Too wrapped up in "me" and has no concept of team. Too inconsistent for me anyway, but I will not draft this guy.

 
Brian WestBrook - I dont know why, but I dont want him on my team.

TJ Housh.

Anyone from the Bears Offense or the Bills Offense.

Dont ask me to explain, I just dont like them

 
Housh after this year, He's one of those players that always puts up poor numbers when he's in my starting lineup and blows up when i bench him.

 
There is no player I would not own if he was good because of any attitude.

Its one thing to not want Westbrook as the injury status creeps up on him.

But I would never not take Rivers because he is arrogant.

Nor Peyton because some don't like him.

If a player will get me points...Ill put him on my team. This is fantasy ball, Im not worried about team chemistry.

I'm not worried about chemistry either, but this year I concentrated on only drafting guys I like/enjoy to watch, and I had a great season. Getting in the playoffs made it a good season, but I really enjoyed having more interesting/higher risk players like Bush/BMarshall rather than less interesting/less risk guys like TJ Housh/Jamal Lewis
 
Jamal Lewis and Braylon Edwards both will most likely never see my team again. I got caught up in the Cleveland hype this year. I think I started Jamal two games all year, after drafting him in the 3rd round. Braylon is worthless, think of the yardage he could have had if he would have caught the league avg for catch percentage. He's the equivalent of a blind shooting guard in basketball...gets lucky every now and then but rarely does he connect.

 
i dont think i could ever own Tom Brady. I cant possibly root for the Pats to do well. However, i dont ever draft QB's early and i dont play in big money leagues (I just play for fun for the most part) so i guess i dont lose that much by purposly avoiding him.

 
We play for stats. Who cares who puts them up?

I'd roster Osama if he was a stud RB.

True, but there are some guys I can't bring myself to roster regardless. I just can't stand something about them. It's not all about the money for me, it's also about the enjoyment of it, and I can't enjoy rooting for a guy like Rivers or Stevens. I'd rather the roll the dice on someone else.
 
TO, but of course it would depend on how far he fell!!!!

I would probably try to find a way around drafting Rivers as well.

 
I don't care so much if a player is a bit of an arrogant ##### like TO, Chad Johnson or Phillip Rivers. Although people with more character will usually be better players and play with more heart....usually.

I cannot roster any Eagles players. I am a lifelong Giants fan and I hate them too much.

No denver RBs....most people can understand that one.

Anyone else that I'd avoid is simply because I think they are overrated.

You may not like Rivers, but he's not in the same class as Stevens.I'll never own Vick if he returns to the league. And I agree I will never own Stevens.
 
Not a specific player but.....ever since 2002 when I picked Edge after his ACL tear in 2001, and got burned, I decided to adhere to the ACL 2 year rule and never take an ACL victim the next year.

After seeing what Ronnie Brown has done this year I may need to rethink that rule.

Rivers has great character and plenty of heart. Again, to lump him in with TO and Ocho is wrong IMO. He is not a me player. Many people just don't like how emotional he gets on the field, which is different IMO.

Injury prone guys like Steven Jackson. Guys with a very hard schedule or who likely were flashes in the pan. This year I avoided all Cleveland Browns for both reasons.Guys on the decline like Fred Taylor.Guys who suddenly are showing signs of decline. I avoided Carson Palmer (learned hard way by owning last year; stayed clear this year).

I don't like how he talks crap to other players on the field, and to the crowd as he's walking into the lockeroom. He's just a cocky *******, period. I seriously can hardly stand to watch the guy on Sunday.

:useless: I would think Mike Vick would lead the list on this board.
It would be neat to have a top 100 dirtbag list of player crimes, quotes, and general bad behavior.Adam Pacman "Make it Rain" Jones just came to mind.I would also like to add that some players seem to evolve into pretty decent people while other just keep it hush hush on their bad behavior.

Just to add to your point, at the time of the draft we don't know who is going to put up stud numbers or who is going to bust. So it's best to draft a player you like.
 
What I'll never do is handicap myself with the "never" thought.

That said, everyone has one r two players they really don't want, and therefore will put further down their personal lists then they could ever realisticly expect to draft/own him.

For me, that player is T.O. I disliked the guy before he became an Eagle. Started to learn to like/accept him...then he helped break my heart and the hate has become exceedingly strong. The fact that he's a Cowboy just makes it all that much easier to dislike him. I don't want to ever put myself into a position where I might be tempted (or forced) to root for him.

Good call on Fred taylor. I avoided him because I got burned badly by Curtis Martin the year after he led the league in rushing when he fell off the face of the earth.
 
I used to dislike rivers until that playoff game vs the pats when he was playing sans ligaments, while ladyian tomlinson moped on the bench.

that dude's a player.

 
I'm assuming that the OP is talking about for reasons other than production, since it says "no matter how good they are."

Refusing to take guys because you don't like them will seriously hamstring your team if you follow the NFL closely over the years.

I limit myself to the guys that I think are the lowest of the low. Right now my list is 2 players long:

1. Jerramy Stevens

2. Leonard Little in IDP leagues

I suppose I'd probably include Pacman if he was rosterable and Vick were he in the league.

You are entitled to your opinion, obviously, but it's not true that he talks "crap" to other players on the field.He talks, but he does not talk "crap" and never curses. People think he talked trash to Cutler last year, which isn't true. He went out on the field to congratulate his defense in that footage that got shown so much. On top of that, that occurred after some Denver players near the Chargers sideline taunted them about Lorenzo Neal, if I recall correctly.Nor does he talk crap to the crowd. He may say something, like in last year's playoffs when he said something to the effect of "thank you" and "I'll be back" as he left the field hurt. And he said it with a smile on his face.All of this has been documented in numerous interviews with him, his coaches, and his teammates. Last year around playoff time there were a lot of links posted about it.He is a passionate guy. Because of that, he rubs opponents and their fans the wrong way sometimes. If that's the worst thing you can say about him in this day and age, that's pretty good. :thumbup:
 
Any Steeler :pokey: :2cents:
:thumbup:Obviously I wouldn't pass up Parker or Ward in round 10, but as a bengals fan it is just painful to have to cheer for your mortal enemy. On the whole FF probably isn't the place for prejudice against players when drafting because it's all about stats, but especially for a guy like Ward (who is always talking smack, who broke Keith Rivers' jaw, who consistently blindsides with unnecessary blocks) it is just hard to cheer for him every week...even more so when your team is in the same division and will be playing the Steelers twice each year.

who do u think would help the team win more, produce more, and be more effective? michael turner, who was the top backup in the league for years and is no proving he can be a stud starter, or ladanian without an mcl thereby eliminating his cutting ability and explosivenss?

considering ladyian's half-### performance this year, I think I'd take turner over him regardless of who had an mcl.if only you could get yards running your mouth, he'd have the chargers in the superbowl every year.
