There are players in the world of professional sports that everyone agrees are great, Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky, etc. Then there are those that everyone thinks are good, but there might be holes in their game, or they might be considered overrated to some, but not to their home town fans.
These are the athletes you don’t ever want to criticize to their fans. Here are 8 current players you shouldn’t question to their fans unless expect to be sharply questioned and possibly attacked. You’ve been warned. But if you want to piss these people off…we give you some suggestions on how to do it.
J.J. Watt – Houston Texans
Why He’s Loved: The defensive leader of the team recorded 20.5 sacks in 2012 and does a tremendous amount of community service for the Houston Area.
What to say to annoy his fans: He’s only really had one great year. He’s probably on steroids.
Dirk Nowitzki – Dallas Mavericks
Why He’s Loved: 16 years of quality play for one team that has seen 13 playoff appearances and one World Championship.
What to say to annoy his fans: He can never carry a team on his back. He needs a big man to play defense. He’s a tall Shooting guard.”
Derek Jeter – New York Yankees
Why He’s Loved: Yankee for life with 5 World Series rings and always comes through when you need him to.
What to say to annoy his fans: He was never the best shortstop in the league and benefited from great players being brought in around him.
Blake Griffin – L.A. Clippers
Why He’s Loved: Big player that is one of the best aerial threats in the game.
What to say to annoy his fans: All he does is dunk. He’s completely overrated.
Yasiel Puig – Los Angeles Dodgers
Why He’s Loved: He can do everything. Hits walk off grand slams, throws guys out from the warning track and is always exciting to watch.
What to say to annoy his fans: He showboats and makes too many mistakes on the base paths. Will hurt the team in the long run.
Sidney Crosby – Pittsburgh Penguins
Why He’s Loved: The second coming of Lemieux and Gretzky combined.
What to say to annoy his fans: He is a flopper who gets all the calls from the refs and disappears in the playoffs. He also can’t grow a mustache let alone a playoff beard.
Aaron Rodgers – Green Bay Packers
Why He’s Loved: Took over for Brett Favre and didn’t miss a beat winning a Super Bowl quickly.
What to say to annoy his fans: Gets lucky on a lot of his throws deep and his touchdown celebrations is ridiculous and I DON’T WANT INSURANCE!
Cristiano Ronaldo – Real Madrid/Portugal
Why He’s Loved: Led his team to a Champions League title this year. And knows how to finish and maybe one of the best at free-kicks in the world.
What to say to annoy his fans: He falls down to easy and looks for the penalty too much. More concerned about being pretty then playing good and only is successful with a ton of talent around him, can’t carry his National Team.
