    Thought of a few names

    Was gonna say Sprewell. But that dude just kept rejecting contracts so that doesnt qualify him. What was the name of the guy who got caught with Gilbert Arenas and the gun?

    Kermit Washington (NBA) claimed on HBO that he was being blackballed after he KO'ed Rudy

    Marty McSorley (NHL) was, but that was for a damn good reason.

    Bonzi Wells could fit the bill

    Palmeiro (MLB) vanished after he tested positive

    What was that guy on the T-Wolves, McCants?

    Whatever happened to Steve Francis by the way?

    he was apparently backup at Eagles in 11 and on the Bills practice squad or minicamp last year. They could do better with him, than with Fitzpatrick

    Lol @ vince young

    That nigga sucks...he got a chance in philly and couldn't even stay out the headlines (dream team) and not bring negative publicity to the team. Plus he stunk up the joint when vick took his yearly injury sabbatical

    And then he turned around and was trash in buffalo, he couldn't even push Fitzpatrick for the starting job

    Oh I forgot, he's black...so it's got to be some underhanded reason why he's not in the league

    If being trash is a good enough reason then there are a whole bunch of backups who should be unemployed as well.

    And there are a lot of backup caliber qbs who aren't employed.

    But the only excuse for Vince not having a job is because he is blackballed? That's quite a leap to make that connection.

    Bonzi Wells was on da T'Wolves preseason roster trynna get a job last year. nd take a venture on google real quick real fast he wasnt blackballed dude was batshit crazy lls

    Rashad McCants apparently was a headcase nd went into acting

    Steve Francis had injury issues, drug addiction nd horrible attitude he wasnt blackballed when u refuse to play for teams dat doesnt leave a good impression its his fault why he aint in da league now nd its a damn shame cuz he was talented as fuck

    If he was a total scrub QB then that's one thing. He does have some talent so it's kinda odd how a relatively young QB who has a winning record just can't seem to find a job. Especially when worse players are getting 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th chances. Yes he had his issues but he's been working hard to prove himself and has taken accountability for his actions. So idk.

    A.I never really took conditioning seriously and constantly punished his body on n off the court

    Bill Simmons mentions in his book all these epic stories NBA players trade about A.I getting trashed, sleeping like 3 hours, waking up like 90 minutes before a game, then dropping 40 points lol

    That shit is bound to catch up w/ you eventually and it did.

    I made this thread to start up some new talk and get contribution from others, I just through out names to begin with I knew there were more... I work 2 jobs in between the time I get on here, so I don't have all day like you to post and be broke like others...
    All the dudes I named got blackballed and some for good reasoning I'm just pointing out the blackball... Yeah I should've started out with Pete Rose but I was sticking to the modern day era type, last 10 year guys u feel me...

    T.O. was definitely blackballed by the NFL, they never had a real reason to turn away from him until he got that end of the season ACL injury and that's when he never got anymore looks, it was like the entire league prayed for the day T.O. got hurt. Not too mention Owens was the most fit NFL player maybe in the history of the game... He came off two seasons of being a quiet soldier in Buffalo and Cincy but somehow only thing he gets remembered for is his bad break ups, which he had alot of responsibility for but was the ultimate worker on the field... They colluded to get Owens out the league, he can still play today as a #2 WR for half the teams in the league...

    Barry Bonds got the shaft too but we'll get to that later

    As much as I hate to admit it, TO's "past" is a big reason why he hasn't gotten another run. Let's not forget, though, that he came back with Seattle in the preseason, in great shape, but couldn't catch the ball. Is he really worth it?

    BTW, AI is my favorite player of this generation--he defined an era. Animosity aside, he hasn't been blackballed. Have you seen what goes down when Philly brings him out? I would love to see him get another run, but can his game truly help anyone (a young team OR contender)?

    Jokers get blackballed in MLB. The jury is still out on the other leagues IMO.

    Id say Roberto Kelly probably has the blackest balls.
