    The Tank McNamara Sports Jerk of the Year award is going to be mighty lonely in that trophy case !

    A well deserved ‘honor’.

    As I said yesterday, Lance Armstrong isn’t the most-deserving of this “honor.” Lance’s transgressions happened in previous years.
    On the other hand, Gary Bettman flipped off the very fans that pay the extortionate ticket prices, extortionate concession prices and merchandise prices. He nearly destroyed the NHL season and alienated thousands of fans.
    Many NHL venues now have tickets available when for years, you couldn’t obtain a ticket because they were constantly sold out.

    I think the voting was rigged, and Bill Hinds planned this all along. I demand a recount.

    Maybe the sanctimonious SOB should have gotten a special lifetime achievement award instead.

    Agree with you Ashburn. Lance may be a jerk, but Bettman screwed over people who really care. Armstrong is set for a repeat after his session with Oprah.

    I think I would have gone with Melky Cabrera, for his behavior towards opposing baseball fans during the season. My guess is that, hereafter, he will be forever booed when he returns to Atlanta.

    A lifetime achievement award sounds great. I’m torn between Bobby Knight and Randy Moss. But it’s hard to ignore Roger, Barry and Lance. And does dying disqualify a person for the award? If not, Marge Schott and Robert Irsay have earned consideration.

    And if you want to give the SJOY to Gary Bettman, he’s got to share it with his employers, the 30 NHL Owners, who are the ones who actually called for the lockout.

    I not think lance should get it alone. How many kids are out there because thier sports dad did not wear a condom. How many women have std because of these sport figures. Tiger woods said it best when he said I believed I deserved all those women tossing themselves at me but I was wrong. How about the ones that moslest children. sorry lance is up there but not were near the top

    Armstrong was a strong contender, all right. But I still maintain that the human gargoyle, Bud Selig, has deeper and stronger repulsive traits and actions than Sword Legstrong.

    Lance is a good choice for 2012 and maybe he can be retroactively awarded it to replace his now gone 7 tour titles.
    His action when charged by USADA with his attacks on his former teammates, dragging thing out and then down even lower before finally admitting that he cheated and lied makes him a great choice for jerk of the year.

    My only quibble is that Lance progressed so far past “Jerk” status. A jerk shoves you over when he rides his bike past yours. Lance threatened lives and ruined careers and apparently never once gave it a second thought until he had no other option than to confess. I’d have to consider him for Sports Sociopath of the Year. (And yeah, I looked that up to check the definition.)
