Under certain conditions, the competitive fire that fuels top-flight athletes and coaches can transform into epic rants. WatchMojo’s “Top Ten Sports Rants” compilation features a who’s who of guys (notably, no gals) that went off in legendary fashion.
TOP TEN SPORTS RANTS
Oklahoma State Cowboys football coach Mike Gundy kicks off the top-ten sports rants countdown with his memorable “I’m a man, I’m forty!” rant from 2007.
Others losing their marbles in the hall of shame include (in ascending order) John McEnroe, Phil Esposito, Hal McRae, Herm Edwards, Jim Mora, Richard Sherman, Mike Tyson, Kevin Borseth, and Allen Iverson.
I WANT TO EAT HIS CHILDREN
While WatchMojo had Iverson’s “Talking About Practice” rant at number one, for sheer audacity it’s hard to compete with Tyson’s “I want to eat his children” post-fight, stream-of-consciousness interview.
Receiving honorable mention in WatchMojo’s list of runaway ranters are Barry Hinson, Michel Therrien, Shannon Sharpe, John Sitton, Dennis Green…
… and Coastal Carolina football coach David Bennett for his legendary 2011 rant about cats and dogs.
