    Sports Naughty or Nice?

    It's that time of the year... which sports personality has been the naughtiest this year and which one has been the nicest?

    Here's a couple nominees to get the thread started:

    Nice: Armando Galarraga is definitely a deserving nominee on the nice list given the way he handled the missed call by Jim Joyce that ruined his no hit bid on June 3rd. He personified class all the way IMHO.

    Naughty: Tiger Woods may be the run away candidate for naughty for obvious reasons but Brett Favre definitely is in the running too in my view.

    Surely there are tons of other personalities who deserve consideration for various reasons. So who would you nominate for naughty and nice?

    We'll have to consult the judges on that one.... :

    Naughty: Sports fans who convict with no evidence other than heresay from non-trustworthy people.

    Nice: I am in total agreement with Armando Galarraga.

    Nice: If your going to give Galarraga credit you have to give Joyce credit. I have never seen an official man up and admit that he was wrong like that.

    Naughty: Chizik, Cecil Newton, and Auburn.

    I agree with Cecil but why Chizik and Auburn? Is it because they are so good it's criminal?

    Go read everyone else comments on the Cam Newton thread and that will pretty much sum it all up.

    I'm vaguely familiar with that thread and seem to recall that the NCAA ruled that Cam was eligible to play at Auburn without condition because there was no evidence of anything improper in his recruitment by Auburn.
