The "2006 Turkeys Of The Year": have been awarded. They page in reverse order, from 13 down. A little surprised at #1.

Seems a little early to parade out 2006 lists. We've got a full month that could deliver another dozen turkeys.

I think I would have made #2--#1---this guy was on the ground when it happened---and--how about that little 'fight' down in Flordia--makes my TOP TEN

Here's the video of #8 (psycho pee wee football coach) doing his thing.

Holden: Thanks for that. What a fuckwit. What a wonderful role model for his kid... Genepool needs a little chlorine... As for number 1 on the list, I agree entirely. I mean it's turkeys... Stupidity etc... What was more stupid than that. Dopers? Stupid, but common. The incident at number one was absolutely hugely stupid, and, for what it was, totally unique. (Trying to talk about it without giving away what it is for those who don't want the list spoilt.)

I thought #2's folly was far worse than #1, sorry Drood.

I'd make T.O. # one every year. In fact name It the T.O. Award!!! You know what I think I hate most about him? He is probably mad he's not # one. Heaven forbid someone get more attention than he does!!!!!

Billsaysthis: Why are you apologizing for having a different opinion?:) I guess for the actual incident, you're right. But the ramifications and global reach of the #1 is far greater.

The Naked Lions Coach gets my vote as number one. He is everything that is wrong with that orginization.

I agree with Drood. Number 1 deserves the Golden Turkey (and not an MVP award). Number 2 isn't a leader of his team and one of the all time greatest in his sport, and the ramifications on his organization are minor by comparison. And grady, Happy Thanksgiving! (Get it? Or do you live in a country where Thanksgiving is illegal?)

I'm surprised there is only one mention of # 5 here. I'm sure we are all smudged-out now, but come February when Roger's reports to camp, he and the rest of us will hear plenty more.

I think the selected #1 was a good choice; "head butt" just happens to be my favorite oxymoron. And who better than to put the "moron" into oxymoron than a guy who can't control himself during the biggest game of his life?

Ricky Williams is a turkey of the year? What crap. Feels like SI is more and more for old men.

Weedy said a turkey, not the turkey. Please allow the man to defend his tokin' peers.

One toke over the line, sweet Jesus, one toke over the line.

Yes, I am flabergasted that he ranks with the rest of this cast for essentially just dancing to a different beat. I can think of a few turkeys that would rank far, far ahead of him. Really lazy little project from SI.
