1. Serena Williams..
I just saw that she won her 50th title..
This is way too low..
She should be at least at federers number of 75..
Possibly more cause the women's competition is weaker..
But she doesn't enter alot of tournaments cause she is lazy..

2. A-rod, or mr April..
Just froze on the big stage..

3. Brett favre..
I just felt he was more talented than his one title..

4. Allen iverson..
Another lazy bum..
Plus he was a cancer to any team..

5. Torres..
He could have gone done as one of the greatest strikers to play the game..
Now?
He will most like be remembered as a hot flash in his small stint at Liverpool..

6. Mike Tyson..
Could have gone down as the greatest boxer of all time..
But he imploded his career..

7. Eli manning
If he was alittle,(ok I mean alot), more consistent.
Eli would be remembered as a legend.
He's just too flaky.
He shouldn't be the type to consistently blow games.

8. Mark Sanchez.
You know your career has gone horribly wrong, when they bring in tebow as your back up.

9. Joe flacco
Yes last years playoff run was one for the ages.
But why can't he do this more consistently?

10. Michael Owen.
See Torres


Wow. Serena? Do you have any idea the comp she had early in her career. Her sister, Capriotti, Justine Henin Arden, Hingis, Maresmo, Pierce and a bunch of Russians I can't even name. Eli has 2 Superbowl MVP's. Farve won 3 MVP's. Flacco has taken his team to the playoffs and won a game almost every year he's been there. If his kicker hits a chip shot 2 years ago it's 2 trips to the Superbowl in a row. Sanchez was never that good to begin with and in his first 2 years went to the AFC Cahmpionship game. Iverson took a team to the finals that had no business being there. Granted he's a punk but the guy threw his body around lieka madman. ARod has 3 MVPs and although a bust in many playoffs he had 18 RBI's in the 2009 playoffs and carried the team through all 3 rounds. No one cares about soccer so why bother. Tyson I agree with, he basically just stopped training and believed his own hype.

I'll put my 9, Tyson is on my list too in the next argument.


50 titles is a joke for Serena!
Everyone knows she only plays half the tournaments as her fellow peers..
If the Williams sister entered more tournaments..
75 titles would not be out of the question..
But she doesn't cause she is a bum!

You like to support losers for some reason..

Looking forward to tearing you list apart!!!!!!!!
Aaaaaarrrrrrrgggggggg!!!!!
Ha ha..


Albert Haynesworth - Got his guaranteed money and basically ate himself out of the league
Eddy Curry - Please see Albert Haynes worth with the exception of all the money being guaranteed
Jarmarcus Russell - Laziest human being ever. The Raiders gave him a blank DVD with the next weeks gameplan after being told he never watched them. They asked him a few days later what he thought of it and he said "I like it".
Jason Bay - Not sure what happened to him with the Mets but he instantly became a shadow of himself.
Daryll Strawberry - Should have been a Hall of Famer
Brian Bosworth - Just awful after college
Armando Benetiz - All the stuff in the world and good regular season numbers but blew every big game he was ever a part of.
Mark Texeria - A mess since becoming a Yankee despite numbers that don't look bad. In the Postseason he's hitting 222 with 3 HR's and 14 RBI's in 40 games. For a full season that would be 12 HR's and 56 RBI's. Pathetic
Phil Hughes - even when healthy he can't put a decent season together. Even the year he won 18 games he had 5 good starts and then stunk. He was #1 in the league in run support or he would have lost 18 games.


Your list would su/k-c on defense


Wow, great argument. Not quite sure where I can go with this. Serena has indeed played less tourneys but a lot of that has to do with her health. She's a bigger gal and her knees and ankles have trouble holding up to the grind of playing more tourneys. But her Grand Slam victories alone show she's far from an under achiever.
Sanchez you can certainly argue is an underachiever for a #5 overall pick but the Jets had no business drafting a guy with under 20 college starts from a program that always makes QB's look good that early anyway.

Biggest underachievers..
You can do a mixture of current and recent..

He had already lost to Douglas by then and was a shadow of what he once was. Not sure he counts as "current" or "recent" but Froggy put him up there so......If he ever gets around to a 2nd argument I'll keep mine 90's or later.

Doucher.I hope the Rangers get stomped by Boston. I really don't want the Pens to have to face Lundqvist....

And I hope the Sens kill the Pitt Bettman's, I mean Penguins.

I was going to put Doc Gooden on my list but he was already in rehab by 1987 so not current enough but what a waste of talent. Should have been a Hall of Famer.

The same with Strawberry. Those teams should have made multiple world series appearances.

Straw is on my list. He didn't crap out until the 90's when he left the Mets. That team was a bunch of bad guys. Dykstra, Doc, Straw, Kevin Mitchell.....Hernandez was known as a druggie and people speculate that's why the Cards got rid of him. And the only one who died was Carter who didn't party. Go figure. Cone came up in 87 or 88 and that team should have been a powerhouse for a decade.

That is absolutely why the Cards got rid of Hernandez.

He's been on his last 5 minutes for over 5 hours. I guess I'll throw my other 9 here:
Albert Haynesworth - Got his guaranteed money and basically ate himself out of the league
Eddy Curry - Please see Albert Haynes worth with the exception of all the money being guaranteed
Jarmarcus Russell - Laziest human being ever. The Raiders gave him a blank DVD with the next weeks gameplan after being told he never watched them. They asked him a few days later what he thought of it and he said "I like it".

Left out Ryan Leaf. Crap

So left says Serena is a lazy bum because she didn't enter more tournaments, but then he proceeds to mail in his arguments. Ironic.
