    A Alabama newspaper recently started a survey asking for a poll of the most disgraced modern-day professional athletes. Named were:

    Barry Bonds
    Roger Clements
    Marion Jones
    Mike Tyson
    Pete Rose
    O.J.Simpson

    Who would you say from the above list or feel free to add others.

    BTW, I will give the results of the newspaper poll a little later.

    First of all it's Clemens. The first 3 you listed were disgraced due to steroid use. I would venture that there are a LOT of professional atheletes who use steroids. A LOT

    Before O.J.?
    If Vick was in the list, I'd put him in number two spot, personally.

    He (Michael Vick) was not a name in the poll although I think he certainly should be. He'd be my second choice behind O.J.

    And thanks for the name correction. My second mistake of the day. First one was getting out of bed this morning. :tongue:

    I gotta go with OJ. Guilty or not, the charges he was up against far outweigh those of the rest of the lot mentioned above..

    I think Marion Jones is the most tragic not because she denied steroid use until the very end but because she pulled her relay teammates, good honest athletes down with her. She not only lost their respect and let them down but cost them their gold metals and dreams of a lifetime. Sad, just very very sad.

    Yep, those other guys are only guilty of gambling to steroid abuse at the very worst. No skeletons/dead bodies as in OJ's fade from glory.

    Hockey fan I see. Considering that Pete Rose and associated gambling is listed, there's also Rick Tochett (Phoenix Coyotes affiliation w/ Wayne Gretzky & the NHL) with his gambling operation.

    The NBA, with Sir Chalres Barkley having gambling issues, he's a potential candidate as well. He owes $ 400K or faces fraud charges.

    UPDATE: Their (the newspapers) poll results thus far.

    Barry Bonds 6.7 %
    Roger Clemens 7 %
    Marion Jones 1.2 %
    Mike Tyson 5.2 %
    Pete Rose 4.3 %
    O. J. Simpson 75.6 %

    Michael Vick definately should have been listed.

    They're all disgraceful, but only one slashed two people to death. I vote for O.J.

    I thing Barry Bonds "The Juice Man" deserves it. And his record shouldn't count because it was acheived throught the use of illegal substances. He's a liar and a druggie.

    O.J. Simpson is a murderer. It's that simple.

    Pete Rose got what he deserved to due to gambing...

    Latest and last update:

    Barry Bonds 5.9 %
    Roger Clemens 6.2 %
    Marion Jones 2.4 %
    Mike Tyson 5.7 %
    Pete Rose 4.6 %
    O.J. Simpson 75.2 %

    (I'm a little surprised at the percentage for Bonds is much higher here on LPSG)
