It was tough to whittle down the the final list for 2015, but after much analysis we are here. For the sake of time we will keep the descriptions short and sweet. The nominees:
The NFL’s Deflategate Hysteria - For all the constant hype involved with the NFL this one took the cake. It made "turkeys" of so many people we can't name them all here.
Roger Goodell - Continues to have rough years in the public eye and 2015 was a season to forget for Roger. NFL continues to soar however and he still earns $40+ mil.
FIFA - Scandals, corruption, banishments, denials. Repeat. Sounds about right.
Adrian Peterson - A good comeback season has not fully washed away what transpired with him the last year. Scores points for riding into his birthday party on a camel.
Greg Hardy - Has become the laughingstock of the sports world and does not seem to care. Bonus points for wanting us to think he's the victim.
Jason Pierre-Paul - 4th of July did not really agree with him.
Hulk Hogan - Previously busted for a sex tape, then busted for racist comments. WWE's biggest star ever was scrubbed clean from all records.
Johnny Manziel - Decision making is not a strong suit. Will be back in Texas on the Dallas Cowboys roster by this time next year.
ESPN - The only 13 time nominee. Continues to employ people that make the company a laughingstock, and continues to embrace debate.
