Chad Johnson is my favorite professional athlete. His personality is pretty much entirely why.
RF, Finally I agree with you on something
I feel that player personalities are something that makes the game much more interesting, not that it isnt allready interesting enough.
Player personalities are good for creating storylines that build interest in games. And this goes for all sports. For example. I am a Pittsburgh Penguins fan, but whenever there is a Colorado/Detroit game on TV, thats what I am watching. why? because the storyline created by the hatred between the two teams is quality entertainment. I will never forget when Darren McCarthy skated slowly by the Av's bench and punched every single player in the face as he skated by. That was Awesome! If not for that, I wouldnt even care about that game.
Marvin Harrison is a reciever that I believe is on the same level as Randy Moss or Terrell Owens skill-wise. But he is boring. I would much rather watch Moss or TO. Their unpredictable behavior keeps me interested.
