Ricky Hatton 

 

Total cunt apparently.

A nice mild mannered mate of mine bumped into him in Tenerife 4 or 5 years ago, my mate said " Hi Ricky how are you, any chance of a selfie?"

RH pulled my mates glasses off his head, threw them to the floor and then stamped on them.

Then he walked off with his minders without saying a word

I hate stuff like that.. Manc wanker.

Troy Polamalu mainly for this play and others just as bonkers throughout his career. 

Flintoff: for being seemingly a nice bloke and still being very funny. 

Bryan Danielson: I know wrestling isn't a competition sport but it still counts. 

Shaq again seems like a genuinely nice bloke. 

Mean Joe Greene a legend who isn't the slightest bit mean off the field.

Sounds a bit shit :(

...my mum and Dad palled up with and his entergouge in the railway out there on a couple of his sabbaticals, said he was ace.

Might have had one too many when he met your pal, no excuses of course.

I’ve met Ricky on many occasions, never been anything but very jovial. His brother is a good lad too.

Perhaps he just didn't like my mates glasses, shame as they were expensive.

Absolute cricket legend in my eyes, first played for England in 1950 and his last appearance for England was 1976, he was also mentor to Botham, check out the time when he faced the West Indies fast bowlers in their pomp, no hat just pads and box and got smashed to pieces but stood up and never back down despite getting battered black and blue. Check out his stats and career.

Same

Can be a bit aggy when he’s bladdered but generally a decent bloke

Current - Nadal and Fury definites

then to complete the 5 i’d add Lucy Robson, Hailey Ostrom and Blair O’Neal

Google them and you’ll see why
