It seems like no matter what sport you are watching, there is always a team or a player that is always crying about something.
They aren't making enough money. They want out of their contract, or they just can't seem to win.
These are people that make millions upon millions of dollars, and yet they have the nerve to continue griping.
Basically, I'm sick of all the complaining that some people in the sports world just keep bugging about.
Here are some examples of such crybabies.
Rasheed Wallace is one of the most notorious players to ever walk on an NBA court.
Although he has tamed himself since being traded from the Portland Trailblazers to the Detroit Pistons, Wallace tends to still play the role of a loose cannon.
This past week, the power forward made a comment that might as well give him a new nickname - big baby.
Apparently Wallace is still whining about the Cleveland Cavaliers making it to the NBA Finals after coming from behind to beat the Pistons.
He was quoted as saying the NBA "wanted" Cleveland to make it to the NBA Finals because of LeBron James.
To this day, Wallace believes that Detroit was still the better team in that series.
I'm sorry, but don't you have to win in order to be considered the better team?
Wallace even went as far as to comparing the NBA to the WWF, which is impossible since the WWF changed to the WWE in 2002.
Get with the program Wallace.
Here's my problem with that statement - I understand that there are leagues that would prefer certain teams make their respective championship games. However, it is only good to want things.
Wallace is just upset because he wants another title. When the Pistons beat the Lakers in the 2004 NBA Finals, it was like watching David topple Goliath.
Here Los Angeles had a team filled with hall of famers, and Detroit goes on to beat them.
Hey Rasheed, if the NBA really was fake like the WWE, then your team should have lost that series.
The bottom line is that Detroit got outplayed by a Cleveland team that seemed hungrier and more determined to make a run for the Finals.
One more thing, if the NBA really wanted the Cavaliers to win the title then they should not have gotten swept by the Spurs.
Another thing that is bothering me is how people are now seeing the New England Patriots as the most hated team in the country.
Why is it when a team wins most of the time they are immediately hated? I know I don't like the New York Yankees or the Lakers. But it's not because they win all the time, I just don't like them.
Yet when it comes to the Patriots, I think people should commend them.
For goodness sakes, they had to overcome being scrutinized after being caught cheating in their opening game against the New York Jets.
Here we are, halfway in the season, and they are a perfect 8-0.
Their biggest test lies ahead this week against the Indianapolis Colts.
The Colts are also undefeated, yet nobody is on their case.
In fact, Indianapolis has been under the radar for the most part.
So what is it about the Patriots that is ticking off other NFL teams?
The once-beloved New England team is being accused of running up the score.
Case in point was last Sunday when the Patriots beat the Miami Dolphins, 49-28.
The Dolphins began throwing a fit, accusing the Patriots of running up the score.
Miami is currently 0-8 after losing to the New York Giants in London.
When you are the worst team in the National Football League, you have absolutely no right to complain about anything.
Your team is just that terrible.
I look at the St. Louis Rams who are also 0-8, and although I'm sure they are not happy with that, at least they aren't trying to find an excuse for why they are bad.
Sunday when New England faced the Washington Redskins, the Patriots practically ate them, 52-7.
I don't think it is a bad thing to score.
Sometimes teams can't help it.
New England is just that good of a team, and other teams just need to stop their crying about the fact that this team could be the eventual Super Bowl champions.
The New York Yankees are continuing to have their fits about the team shuffle.
After former manager Joe Torre rejected a $5 million contract for one year, owner George Steinbrenner was steamed.
What do you expect?
Torre was pretty much tired of being Steinbrenner's puppet.
I have to side with Torre on this one.
If I were leading a sports team to 12 straight trips to the postseason and I still had a target on my back because I have yet to win a World Series, I'd be gone too.
Basically Steinbrenner got burned, and I tip my hat to Torre for saying adios to the Devil.
So as I look at all of the NFL teams not named, the New England Patriots, Steinbrenner and Rasheed Wallace, as well as everybody else in the sports world, they all have something to complain about.
Realize that when you go to sleep in your gold-plated beds in your homes that cost several million dollars, understand that you have it better than most of us in the real world.
Remember, if it at first you don't succeed, try harder and quit complaining. If that doesn't work, become a commentator like Charles Barkley and Dan Marino.
