Elite athletes appear to have perfect lives because they get paid lots of cash to do what they love every day. But unfortunately, some of them are garbage human beings who commit terrible acts. Their franchises and leagues have suspended them to punish them for their vile deeds. These controversies rocked the world of sports.
Today, we’ll look at some of the most disgusting actions that sports stars committed. Most of them returned to action after serving their penalties. However, some of them served time in jail or became public enemies. Check out the list via The Sportster.
30. Vontaze Burfict
Unlike other players on this list, Burfict makes this list for on-field reasons. The former Raiders linebacker is one of the dirtiest players ever to step onto a football field. The NFL suspended him numerous times because of his violent play against rival athletes (via Yahoo Sports). He brutalized other players and seemingly had no regard for their well-being.
He also became notorious because of his brutal late hits. Burfict infamously knocked out Antonio Brown in a playoff game. But this wasn’t an isolated incident because he has had an insane number of suspensions. He was a good player but he lived on the edge.
