Pittsburgh athlete you irrationally dislike(d)

Postby slappybrown on Wed Aug 14, 2013 9:48 am

I'm not talking about the obvious choices -- people like Neil O'Donnell, or Marian Hossa (if that is still a thing), etc -- I mean random players that you just can't stand for random or no reason.

Steelers: Matt Spaeth. What is the point of him?
Spoiler:
There is none.

Penguins: Kevin Constantine. I'm cheating a bit by going coach, but man, his stupid face.
Pirates: Orlando Merced

I can't think of anything that I irrationally dislike. If I dislike something, I know the reason for it. Do people actually dislike things for no reason?

I suppose I am using the word loosely to convey a dislike that is more visceral rather than thought-out, or a scenario in which the player isn't really deserving of strong feelings one way or the other, because who cares about Matt Spaeth in the grand scheme of things?

Pens: Jan Hrdina
Pirates: Ryan Doumit
Steelers: Deshea Townsend

no clue why I disliked any of them, just something about them was off to me. there are plenty more, but those are the three that come to mind.

Also from that era, mark mccarroll and keith benjamin.

But those guys kind of sucked. So it was justified. Kenny the kangaroo hasnt hated many halfway decent players.

Actually, one just popped into my head. Aaron Berry.

There is nothing irrational about that. He's makes stupid decisions, on and off the field, and is all in all a bad teammate.

I never really understood this one / why he almost became a punchline to some in Pittsburgh.

He was an older free agent, who came in here and did great. Lead the NFL in rush 8 games into the season I believe.

Then he got hurt and his career pretty much ended. He looked pretty damn good in the time he actually played here

Mark Malone. He never had a chance with me.
I was never a big fan of Dale Berra either.
