Ryan Doumit eyes!

Bryan Morris has the same syndrome.

I always hated Garry Valk, even before he ended the Pens 1999 playoffs.

Garrett Jones, Neil Walker & Tony Watson on the Pirates.

Craig Adams on the Pens.

Not a Steeler fan, so all of them. :pop:

I feel very superficial for not liking Doumit, Karstens, and Jack Wilson because I think they look funny, but it is what it is...

Fun topic:

Pens- Danny 'the walking redlight' Sabourin
Stillers- Rashard Mendenhall (didn't care about his 'controveries' just felt from the day we drafted him that he was a wasted 1st round pick and wasn't a good fit for the team on the field)
Pirates- Every stopgap veteran free agent dumpster dive bargain from 1993-2011. Also Jason Kendall, even before his ridiculous contract.
Pitt- Carl Krasuer

Pirates: Oliver Perez
Steelers: Steely McBeam

Steely McBeam isn't irrational. It'd be wrong if you did like him.

or another one I didn't like. Eddie Olczyk as a player when he was first here. I had bought into Glen Murray. I didn't mind Edzo so much as a local broadcaster.

(a bit irrational as Murray was 11 11 22 in 66 games (and a -19) and Olczyk was 11 points and +8 in 12 games. And by then had about forgotten he was in the Stevens trade with MacEachern and Smolinski.

I didn't much care for him, but that's because of his association with the Stevens trade.

Whats to hate about Neil Walker?

I never liked Rick Tocchet.

IMO, there is a lot to dislike about most of the Steelers these days. AB and Emmanuel Sanders are perhaps the exceptions; they seem like genuinely good people.

I always hated Willie Parker when everyone else loved him, even before the injury that everyone said derailed his career I just didn't get it. Never thought he was really any good outside the Super Bowl run which was more great blocking by his teammates than a great run.

Although I actually like him a lot more now since he retired as he has a big social media presence and actively cheers on all Pittsburgh sports. Seems like a great guy, I just never liked him as an actual player.

Baseball: Jeff Reboulet. I'm not sure why either. He was at the end of his career when he got to Pittsburgh so it wasn't like I was expecting .300 from him.
Hockey: Tyler Kennedy.
Football: Chad Scott.

For the Steelers it is Pouncey. I think he is overrated and injury prone. He also suggested his Florida cronies Gilbert and Rainey.

For the Pens, I don't really dislike any of them but I think Glass is pretty useless and feel we could easily replace him with someone cheaper, younger, and more effective.

For the Pirates, I don't really dislike any of them, but Gaby Sanchez annoys me with how poorly he plays most of the time.

Don't care enough about Pitt to dislike anyone but I never like Tino for obvious reasons.

Steelers: Mendenhall. Thought he was soft from day 1, and he proved me right throughout his tenure.

Pirates: I was never a fan of Kris Benson.

Pens: Zubov (though this is pretty rationale)

Pitt Football: Cam Saddler. The media loved him cause he was good in front of a mic, but he has one more college TD than I do.

Pitt Hoops: Nas Robinson. Ever since he fouled that guy from Butler in the tourney, I wanted his head. Didnt care for him before that, despised him ever since.

I've heard Jeff Locke speak in a candid manner with AJ Burnett, and his age definitely shows. Any maturity he shows on the mound doesn't apply in real life.
