From a list of more than 75 athletes, SportsPickle asked readers to vote on who is the biggest douchebag in sports. After 369,097 votes, here are the results.
#25 Mark Cuban
Mark Cuban is proof that money can't buy you non-doucheitude. In fact, all it does is allow you to afford more graphic tees and rounds of beer for your bros. Cuban has a long way to go, though. In a billionaire douche-off, he would get routed by Donald Trump.
#24 Sean Avery
Coming in at No. 24, Avery is the highest-ranked hockey player on the list. When you beat out Patrick Kane in a douche competition, you know you've achieved greatness in the field of douchery.
#23 Kellen Winslow, Jr.
The national dislike of Kellen Winslow, Jr.: Forever proof that America doesn't support all of its troops.
#22 John Calipari
John Calipari as douchebag: one title that will never be stripped from him.
#21 Tony Romo
His time with Jessica Simpson and love of stupid hats secured his place on the list. It's his greatest career accomplishment besides that one playoff win.
Mets, Jets, Islanders, Rangers, Knicks, Nets. All great teams.
Toplist The Biggest Douchebag in Sports
Sports are full of douchebags. Sports always award championships. But the title of "Biggest Douchebag in Sports" has never been awarded. That ends now.
Video Hockey Celebration Fail
A metaphor for the NHL lockout?
Obama: I like the designated hitter. Not everyone was given the tools to hit, just as most hitters can't pitch well. But pitchers do more than their share to help the team. I am okay if they get some help at batting. It's a team, after all.
Romney: Pitchers need to pull themselves up by their bootstraps and learn to swing the bat if they want to make it in the big leagues. There are no handouts in professional sports. We've coddled these American League pitchers for far too long.
Obama: I'm not too worried about the elite quarterbacks. They're doing just fine. In fact, the system is stacked in their favor. You can't touch a guy like Tom Brady without getting a flag. The elite quarterbacks get all the calls. What we need to do is focus more on the success of the middle class of quarterbacks the Jay Cutlers, the Joe Flaccos and make sure they have a fair shot. If we can build up that middle class of quarterbacks, the league as a whole will be better off.
Romney: I want all quarterbacks to improve and aspire to that elite status. But those who are elite already got there through a lot of hard work and are not to be demonized. Let's be honest: Are people tuning in to NFL games to watch Tom Brady or a guy like Joe Flacco? It's Brady. I want the elite quarterbacks like Brady to get more calls in their favor. If the top quarterbacks do well, ratings for the entire NFL will be strong and that provides revenue for everyone.
