Biggest waste of talent (self-induced)

Recommended Posts

What sportsmen do you think have wasted their talent the most. When I say wasted their talent, I mean that they didn't achieve the greatness they were destined for, due to their own actions.

 

To start you off I'll give you these:

 

 

 

George Best (retired way way too early and the drink had a very bad effect on him)

 

GAZZA (that stupid tackle on Gary Charles in the FA Cup final - he was never the same again)

 

Alex Higgins (no single thing with him, I think it was everything - drink, drugs, women, etc, etc)

 

Mike Tyson (he got complacent and didn't train and when he lost against Douglas the aura of invincibility about him was lost)

Difficult thread as I would assume that the biggest waste are the ones we will never hear about. Here are a few for review:

 

Todd Marinovich

Ryan Leaf

Darryl Dawkins

Scott Skiles

Art Schliester

 

Controversial callout: Shaquille O'Neal -- If he would just practice his free throws and workout in the off-season, he would be so much better.

Mate in fairness it's a very small pond up there. He was playing against crap teams 90% of the time. When he was at Boro and Everton competing against a better standard of team week in week out he was no great shakes, as I'm sure you'll agree.

 

The point was he lost his bit of pace with the injury and was never the world-beater again IMHO

Neville Southall would be brilliant at Rangers, today. :)

Speaking of Big Fat Nev. He got voted the most miserable player by Talksport

 

He was big the last time I saw him a couple of years ago, he must be humungous now

Phil Neville.....He could have been the greatest!

 

 

Nah, Ian Dowie was a better ugly bastard.

 

Phil runs him close though, I'll grant you that.

Unfulfilled talent, Matthew Le Tissier. Technically brilliant, some of his goals were works of art but he really was a lazy fucker. In my opinion if fitter he could have been a top England international. I think the comfort of staying at Southampton where is lack of fitness was accepted led to this.

I'll second the Shaq one. Playing on skill alone. Never did enough to better his game. Can we add roughly 3 or 4 more championships if he put in the effort.

 

Tyson should have never left his original handlers. He would have been one of the greats if he had stayed.

 

Add:

Ralph Sampson

Tyrone Wheatly

Ron Dayne

Most NBA rookies straight out of high school. Completely watered down the league.

Too many to list here...lol.

 

How about we list the ones that played for crap teams and still shined. I'll start:

Barry Sanders

Buck Williams

Gotta love it!!! N.Y. Giants, 2008 Superbowl Champions. N.Y. Giants vs. N.E. Patriots...final score: Giants 17, Patriots 14 Repeat of 2008....N.Y. Giants vs N.E. Patriots - Giants 21, Patriots 17. Doesn't get any better than that!!

Maradona, you might as well close the thread now.

 

The finest footballer I have ever had the misfortune to see scoring against England.

 

Ravaged by drugs and weight problems, he was still the best footballer on the planet. Imagine what he could have achieved if it was not for those problems.

 

He could have been a bigger icon than Pele.

A Puritan is someone who is deathly afraid that someone, somewhere, is having fun.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6
