The “Controversial Sports Personalities” of 2010 …..

December 16, 2010 |

4) Randy Moss – In a recent interview, with Boston’s WEEI radio, Cris Carter attempted to forge some amends for his good buddy, Randy Moss. According to Carter, Moss “is full of regret” over his antics in pursuit of getting kicked out of New England, earlier this season.

In the span of a couple months, Moss has caused turmoil in the Patriots and Vikings respective locker rooms, while also belittling caterers and support personnel. He now finds himself in a Titans uniform, where he averages a catch per week, while watching his beloved Pats cruise toward the top seed in the AFC postseason picture.

Has he learned a lesson? I don’t care what Cris Carter says, the answer to that question is NO !!!! I have no doubt Randy Moss will make this list again, next year.

3) Jenn Sterger – I realize that I’ve really pushed the limits on “Sports Personalities”, when including this former FSU Cowgirl in any discussion. But, let’s be honest, Sterger has dominated a fair amount of headlines over the last few months – for all the wrong, sordid reasons.

For the record, I don’t take sexual harassment lightly and I don’t think such instances are funny. But, I’m very skeptical of situations where perceived victims are most interested in financial remedies; her lawyer has been very clear of such intentions over the last couple weeks.

I’m not certain if Sterger really had a prominent future role in sports-media, but her image has taken a hit due to the unbecoming way the details of her alleged contact with Brett Favre has become public. And, if you’re wondering why Favre isn’t on my list, he’s not running from or paying off this problem.
