    OK, we get a lot of milage out of piling on Cutler and other athletes that might not be so nice. I wonder how far a nicest athlete or coach thread will go?

    Please mention athletes and coaches that we might have actually heard of before. I'm sure that DIII assistant tennis coach is a hell of a guy, but... You know what I mean.

    I will start it off with an athlete that I got to know when I ran a basketball program in Upstate New York - Walt Frazier.

    Pure class and patient as a saint with any kid with any problem and any question.

    Antonio McDyess is the nicest athlete I've ever interviewed. Bart Starr is a close second.

    This is a bit of a violation of 93Devil's rules (re: obscurity), but if you've been on the NFL thread since Sunday, you've heard of this guy, by mistake:

    Derek Stingley

    Total class act when I covered his AFL exploits, a clear reflection of his father.

    He sheepishly admitted he'd never had a drop of alcohol in his life until he had a little taste of champagne after his team won the Arena Bowl. Just a good kid.

    Always super nice and always overly helpful to me but is a total mean ass to his players...

    Tony Stewart is a nice guy, but horrible to the press. Gives a LOT of money to a LOT of people and doesn't send out releases about it.
    Joey Logano is a great kid. I hope he doesn't change.

    and 98 percent of the Nationwide Series drivers.
