Sports heroes come in many shapes and forms. Some of them are brilliant athletes who achieved phenomenal success while others are fantastic human beings. But what happens when those heroes become villains?
It’s usually not a pretty sight. So today, we looked at 40 sports heroes who became villains overnight. Check them out via The Sportster.
40. Ezekiel Elliott
Elliott is one of the best running backs in the NFL over recent years. But he’s also allegedly a domestic abuser, and that’s why he’s on this list. A suspension for an alleged domestic violence incident tarnished his image.
He was never convicted but the NFL still suspended him for six games. This says a lot because they’re notoriously lax about such cases. In the end, a court intervened and suspended the suspension (via Bleacher Report).
