Team of "bad boys" (1 Viewer)

After reading this article, I decided we should accumulate a team with every position filled with the top "bad boy" of all time. To qualify as a "bad boy", you don't necessarily have to have a HOF carrer, you just have to have the reputation.

Offense

Owner: Al Davis Often abrasive and sometimes devious, Davis has not hesitated to buck the powerful National Football League and former commissioner Pete Rozelle to achieve his goals. In 1982 he transferred his team from Oakland to Los Angeles in defiance of the league's rules, a move upheld for years after numerous court battles.

QB: Bobby Layne "I'm just a born night owl," Bobby once said of his Detroit playing days. "Maybe I'm a better player because I start having fun at midnight, get to bed when everbody else is waking and sleep all morning. Makes me fresh as a daisy for the game."

FB: John "Riggo" Riggins Attended a Washington Press Club Salute to Congress dinner and reportedly told Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor: "Come on, Sandy, baby, loosen up. You're too tight.' Sported a Mohawk haircut as a New York Jet. He sat out the 1980 season because of a contract dispute and didn't rejoin the Redskins until 1981, when new Washington head coach Joe Gibbs traveled to Kansas to make a peace offering.

"He had a camouflage outfit on,'' Gibbs recalled. "He had been hunting, him and a buddy. He had a beer can in his hand. It was 10 o'clock in the morning and he's meeting his coach for the first time and I'm thinking [sarcastically], 'This guy really impresses me.' But I went in there, and halfway through the conversation he says, 'You need to get me back there. I'll make you famous.' ''

Riggins reported to training camp with the pithy: "I'm broke, I'm bored and I'm back.'' But again he was dead on. With Riggins as his power back, Gibbs and the Redskins won the Super Bowl in 1982 and made it back to the big game in 1983, losing to the Raiders.

RB: O.J. Simpson Added just for the car chase. Since he was obviously innocent.

WR: Michael Irvin Purchaser of a "sex house” that he and his teammates allegedly purchased explicitly for their illicit affairs with the fairer sex.

WR: Rae Carruth Spending the next 19 to 24 years behind bars for charges stemming from the fatal shooting of his pregnant girlfriend

TE: Mark Chmura For now he'll get the starting nod on this team. Even though he was acquitted on charges of sexual assault and child enticement. Who knows what really went down with him and that 17 year-old in the bathroom of a drunken prom party?

T: Justin Strzelczyk After a hit-and-run accident in New York, police chased his pickup 40 miles, during which Strzelczyk flipped off troopers and at one point threw a beer bottle at them. In the end, Strzelczyk crashed head on at 90 miles per hour into a tanker truck carrying corrosive acid, leaving an explosive scene police compared to an airplane crash.

T: Chris Terry Arrested for wife beating in 2002. He slammed her into a wall, head-butted her and stuffed her face into a pillow – while their two children watched.

G: Conrad Dobler "His quick aggressive behavior on the field, earned him the title of Pro Football's Dirties Player."

G: Nate Newton 213+175 lbs of weed, and that's only the two times he was caught!

C: Barret Robbins Previously best known for disappearing the night before Oakland's Super Bowl thrashing in 2003, Robbins trumped that the following year by attacking three police officers who, being armed, shot him twice in the chest. Police reports indicate that even after being shot Robbins continued to attack the officers. Robbins survived his wounds and is now facing three counts of attempted murder of a police officer.

K: Sebastian Janikowski He’s been arrested for bar fights, drinking and driving (.20 BAC), reckless driving, bribing a police officer, evidence tampering and possession of a drug best known in the media as “the date rape drug.”

P: Todd Sauerbrun DWI and steroid scandel gives this punter the starting nod.

Defense

CB: Dale Carter He has been suspended for drugs, arrested for assault, gun possession and driving under the influence. He also declared bankruptcy after buying many houses and vehicles on credit.

CB: Corey Fuller Charged with hosting high-stakes card games at his house, which was also the site of a shootout. In that event, an assailant attempted to rob the card game and a shootout ensued in which approximately 20 rounds were fired between Fuller and the man.

SS: Jack Tatum "Tatum already was known as one of the game's most feared hitters, but his reputation for mayhem and malice grew exponentially after he leveled Stingley and then wrote a book titled They Call Me Assassin."

FS: Gene Atkins Arrested for firebombing a former business associate but was later acquitted. Most recently he barricaded himself in his house after his wife called police claiming he had shoved her against a wall, choked her, bit her and then beat her with a remote control. Then, when told by police that he was under arrest, Atkins replied, “No I’m not” and punched the officer in the throat, then pushed him outside the home. Surprisingly the police didn't agree, re-entered the home, found Atkins holding four knives, and summarily dropped him with a 'hot shot' from a Taser gun.

OLB: Bill Romanowski As an Eagle, he was fined $4,500 for kicking an opponent in the head.

OLB: Lawrence Taylor Went from cracking heads to crack head in record time. In his now infamous "60 Minutes" interview, Taylor claimed to have spent thousands of dollars a day on narcotics and to have hired prostitutes to go to opponents’ hotel rooms the night before games. He’s had numerous drug related arrests along with a tax evasion charge. Regarding his lifestyle in the late 1990s Taylor described his home as “like a crackhouse.”

MLB: Ray Lewis Arrested in 2000 following a Super Bowl party on two counts of first-degree murder. The charges were later dropped and Lewis pled guilty to a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of justice.

DT: "Mean Joe" Greene Had a reputation for punching, gouging, and kicking like a streetfighter.

DT: Alonzo Spellman Charged with terrorizing passengers on a commercial flight and forcing an emergency landing. According to investigators, once on the ground Spellman told the pilot “I am about to rip your throat out.” Add to the mix weapons charges, a standoff with police from inside his publicist’s home and the usual DUI and failure to appear charges.

DE: John "Tooz" Matuszak "His legacy was that of a brawling, incorrigible miscreant who occasionally played hard but always partied harder."

DE: Leonard Little (Original) Little pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter for killing a woman in a crash while he was driving drunk 18 months before the St. Louis Rams won Super on a DUI in April.

Cheerleader 1: Kristen Owen This cheerleader and below cheerleader were having sex with each other in a stall at the bar when other patrons got angry they were taking so long in the bathroom.

Owen and another person started arguing and Owen hit that person in the face, according to the report. Keathley was escorted from Banana Joe's and the police report said she was so drunk she could barely stand and described her as rude and belligerent with police.

Cheerleader 2: Angela Keathley One cheerleader was charged with battery, the other with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

If you know of someone better suited than the player on the list, post your suggestion with your argument.

Joe Namath, I believe should pretty much have the QB position locked up. The man was the Wilt Chamberlin of football.

I believe Bobby Layne had a pretty colorful off-the-field life. Detroit homers, or really old guys, may be able to shed some light.

Can't find anything on him, other than he's in the hall of fame and must have been good. Joe's still on top.
He was proven innocent! :hifive:

Good call on B. Layne. I have a relative, deceased, that played with Layne and from what I have been told word of mouth Layne's off the field exploits were legendary. Hollywood Henderson might make a nice addition to the defense.

Good choice. Layne was also friend with Mickey Mantle. It was from Layne that Mantle appropriated the line: "If I had known I was going to live this long, I'd have taken better care of myself."http://info.detnews.com/history/story/inde...category=sports
Good article, I'll punch him in. If anyone else defers, the selection could always be suspect to change.

"MEAN JOE" GREENEDEFENSIVE TACKLEEarly in his career, the defensive tackle was simply offensive to opposing linemen. With a reputation for punching, gouging, and kicking like a streetfighter, "Mean Joe" set a tone of toughness and rage for the Pittsburgh Steelers' "Steel Curtain" defense of the 1970s. Despite Greene's prominent game-day scowl and nasty on-field disposition in Pittsburgh, the origin of his nickname stretches back to his college days at North Texas State. Wearing green uniforms, the team was affectionately known as the Mean Green before Mean Joe Greene made it just a little bit meaner.

Michael Irvin is on this list. With all the carousing, drinking, drugs, murder plot on him, strip clubss, etc... he may just be the captain.

Whenever I speak of Mark Chmura, I say... you know that one guy that use to play TE for Green Bay that was pretty good... Chewy or something like that. I had totally forgotten his name.

Hollywood Henderson used coke during SuperBowl XIII. He was snorting it on the sidelines between possessions. Also, he gave the world the antecdote about Bradshaw being so dumb that he would not be able to spell Cat if he was spotted the C and the T.

How about Safety Eugene Robinson? Night before the Super Bowl he gets busted for asking a hooker for some helmet.How bad was this guys weekend? The day before the Super Bowl, Robinson was honored with the Bart Starr Award by the religious group Athletes in Action. Balloting is conducted among NFL players to select the person who displays "high moral character."

C Barret RobbinsHow's that for a Super Bowl pre-game party. He's done pretty well since too. Love the L.T.1 entry. How do you forget him? Carruth-good. Rison? His girlfriend was nastier than him.

Honorable mention-Ray Ray. Course him an O.J. are only alternates on this team (aquittted). Bam Morris-idiot. G Steve 'Wiz' was always called the dirtiest trench player of his time. Oh yeah, and how many careers were ruined by the 49er and Bronco O-lines?

Dexter Manley went to jail for a while for drug stuff, plus he should get bonus points for managing to get through college without ever learning to read.

LT has had some drug issues as well

Who was the Cowboy lineman they found with a truck full of 300 pounds of weed? Nate Newton?

And don't forget... the team needs a Cheerleader.

Chuck Cecil - SSThe guy tackled with his head and was basically banished from the league...just had some bone rocking hits...but none were all that legal by today's standards.

Another vote for Ted 'Curly' Hendricks as a serious bad ### (not a bad citizen but a bad mo fo). I remember reading a story years ago about how an anonymous player on the Raiders drew a stick figure on a blackboard with a dotted line cutting across the throat of the figure and an arrow pointing to the dotted line.The caption on the next to the arrow: "Curly's tackling zone."

Funny Booby Layne story as told to me by Hub Bechtol (my wife's grandfather- http://www.mackbrown-texasfootball.com/pag...fame_index.html )

They were in college at UT at the time and they were piss drunk the night before a game with Tech. Bobby decided it would be a good idea to go for a drive around the lake with Hub and Rooster Andrews. On the way they ran into a ditch and the car was no longer a moving object so Bobby thought they should swim over to the other side, rather than walk, and try to get someone to pick them up and take them somewhere. Rooster, being real short and not very interested in swimming, decided to hang around by the car and wait for Hub and Bobby to come back. About half way across the lake Bobby said he couldn't swim no more and wanted to smoke a cigarette to get his lungs working properly, so he decided to swim back to where the smokes were and try again later. Hub was having none of it so he kept swimming and let Bobby go back. Hub got to the other side and flagged a car, which turned out to be a deputy who instead of taking him back to Bobby and Rooster took him to the coach's place, and woke him up at now going on 3:30 in the morning. Coach was obviously pissed, by the time they got back over to Bobby and Rooster, Bobby was fighting drunk and Rooster had passed out. Bobby was so mad that Hub brought coach he decided to start fighting with Hub and Coach! He was too drunk to do anything of any consequence but managed to land a nice right on the coaches jaw.

The next day, coach went to Bobby's place and woke him up at 8:30 in the morning and made him start running. He made him run until 1hr before game time, then made them both start and play the game. Bobby was real hung over and sick but ultimately had one of the greatest days of his career. He would puke in the huddle and run around and make plays all day.

I think this typifies the Bobby Lane experience.

Bobby was more of a badass than a bad boy.

my submission, one of my all time favorites (being a former O-Lineman)Steve WisniewskiOakland Raiders Guard A near-unanimous choice who racked up $65,000 in fines last year. "Wiz is a dirty *******," says Minnesota long-snapper Mike Morris, an 11-year veteran. "He chops from behind. He'll shoot knees ... I'll take sides with any old lineman, but this m----------- had me cursing and swearing on TV. I couldn't believe the shots he took." Says a Raiders teammate, "Wiz is probably the dirtiest offensive player of all time, whether he admits to it or not." Adds a Buffalo Bill: "He'll get his." now he's a bible banger....

How does the starting team look so far? Anyone think someone else deserves the starting role? Also, we still need a fullback. Maybe we'll add some scrubs to the team but for now, focus on who should be starting.
