Football Player

The Resume

Why he might be annoying:

    He went against his mom's wishes and played football.
    He turned down a contract offer from the Bills, after being selected first overall by the team.
    He missed the majority of the 1980 CFL season due to an elbow injury, which in turn caused the Alouettes to collapse down the stretch.
    He was arrested and charged with drunk driving, along with not being in possession of his driver's license and making an unsafe lane change (March 17, 1982).
    His NFL career was considered a bust.
    He is loathed by the Bills fans for spurning their team to play in the CFL.
    To make things worse, he is despised by the Browns fans for the fact the team traded their first round pick to the Bills to acquire him, and the Bills in turn used that pick to draft Jim Kelly.

Why he might not be annoying:

    He earned All-American honors twice during his tenure at Ohio State.
    Ohio State made a bowl game each of the four years he was a member of the team.
    He was drafted by the Bills with the first overall pick, which was acquired in the O.J. Simpson trade.
    He accepted the offer from the Alouettes, due to the fact it was substantially more then what the Bills were offering.
    He earned the Grey Cup MVP Award as a member of the losing team (1979).
