Sports Heroes to Zeros

Discussion in 'Sports and News' started by Evil Bastard (aka Chris_L), May 10, 2012.

  1. Josh Beckett has become perhaps the most disliked athlete in Boston. I have been trying to think of another Boston athlete who has fallen so far - from World Series hero to being considered a complete douchebag.

    Can you think of any similar situations in other cities or sports? I'd say LeBron but he never won a championship.

    He was a hero?
     
  4. Vince Carter new won a championship for his team.

    What about Patrick Roy in Montreal? Was he considered a douche at the end?

    No, he never won anything in Toronto but he was considered a hero here, whatever the hell that means.

    As I said, no he didn't but Carter was considered a god in Toronto while he was here. Now he's one of the most despised athletes in the city.

    Roy stuck it to the Habs after he was publicly embarrassed by Mario Tremblay in that game against Detroit. He's still one of the most beloved athletes in Quebec. Canadiens fans don't blame him. They save their bile for Habs management
