    But my opinion is based on my bewilderment that a guy could always be so wrong in his predictions and yet maintain his SI job for so long.

    Not this year.

    Cool that you brought it up though, I didn't know he were this bad:

    The entire peloton. They are killing their own sport, bringing disgrace upon themselves, and robbing me of the enjoyment of watching the three grand tours.

    It's a tie between Kobe Bryant, Barry Bonds and that unnamed South Florida bike rider with a shaving obsession

    I get the odd feeling that I've spoken to that unnamed Florida bike rider. [​IMG]

    I feel that much like the late douchebag contest (RIP), we need a clearer definition here. A douchebag is first and foremost a typically blatant asshole and has a grossly overinflated self-worth. Several of these recommendations do not meet that rubric. Marv Albert and John Madden spring to mind, unless there's a lot of evidence of them being assholes off the air tha I'm not aware of. Tony Dungy is a bit of a stretch as well, no surprise that it's from The Pats Fan. Reportedly most of the league and the media love the guy, hardly douche material. A douche is nearly-universally loathed by there non-fans, IMO.

    I like to think of your that if your average Amjack asshole douche playing sports, and think of the douchiest among them. Hence, Sabattini is still my pick.

    A DB designation might be a little harsh, but Bob Costas now grates on me, and I used to really like him back in the day. I also used to like Bryant Gumbel, but he's now reached DB status for me.

    Sabattini is a quality pick for douchiness. I had no idea he took a bride.

    Ian Poulter ran his mouth off a bit much as well, taking aim at Tiger earlier this season, to absolutely no avail. For that matter, any golfer who talks trash.

    Floyd Mayweather, although a lot of what he does may be an act rather than natural douchiness.

    Well, I'll be the first to admit that Dungy is an under-the-radar DB. And at least I tried to justfy my opinion with some facts. [​IMG]
