There are few gestures that cross all social, culture, and economic barriers, but the middle finger is one of them. This weekend while his Tennessee Titans playing their best game of the year against the Buffalo Bills, Titans owner Bud Adams decided to add the universal signal to the cheer of the home crowd. Adams was fined $250,000 by the league for his actions, but he isn't the first or last sports figure to flip the bird at a game.

In honor of Adams' one finger, double-fisted salute, here's our list of the best middle fingers in sports caught on camera. From baseball to Formula 1 racing, we've got them covered, so stick it where the sun don't shine and enjoy...

15. JOE NEDNEY, SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS, 2007
• Life isn't easy for a kicker, no one really notices when you do well and fans are ready to castrate you when you miss any kick within 40 yards. Nedney didn't feel like losing his balls or pride so this subtle yet effective form of the gesture worked just fine.

14. JOSE CANSECO, TORONTO BLUE JAYS, 1998
• Before becoming the biggest snitch in pro sports, Canseco was an ass clown both on the field and off, as seen in this pic.

13. PAT BURRELL, PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES, 2006
• Baseball is full of hand gestures that only a sign language instructor would be able to interpret, but Pat decided to go with universal expression that takes only a split second to understand.

12. DANNY TIATTO, BRISBANE ROAR (SOCCER), 2009
• The beautiful game? Hardly. With more flops, nut grabs and complaints than all real American sports combined soccer is just as dirty as very other sport. This clip is just another piece of evidence.

11. COACH DAVE HAKSTOL, UNIVERSITY OF NORTH DAKOTA HOCKEY TEAM, 2008
• We're guessing that if you're the head coach of a college hockey team, this is about one of the only ways you're making it to the news anytime soon.

10. JOE GLENN, UNIVERSITY OF WYOMING FOOTBALL, 2007
• Don't lie: if your team was getting its ass kicked 43-0, you'd be doing the same.

9. BROCK LESNAR, UFC, 2009
• In this post-fight clip from UFC 100, Lesnar brought some of his WWE fuckery to the world of MMA by playing his "evil villian" persona. Only thing is, in MMA, everyone beats the hell out of each other till they're unconscious so there are no such things as villains.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

8. DAVID COULTHARD, FORMULA 1, 2000
• We've all done this at one point or another on the road, so the fact that Formula 1 drivers do it at speeds well over 100 mph makes us feel a little better.

7. BRIAN GAICOMINI, LOUISVILLE FOOTBALL TEAM, 2007
• Hey, they're going to hate you regardless, so either come out flipping as this college player did, or swing on 'em later on.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

6. MASSIMO BUSACCA, SOCCER REFEREE, 2009
• Referees are supposed to be the one's holding order, but when Busacca was fed up with heckling from fans he opted for this card rather than the yellow or red one.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5. SEAN WILLIAMS, NEW JERSEY NETS, 2008
• We figured everyone would be all smiles during All-Star weekend, between the dunk contest, All-Star Game and other festivities, what's not to love? Well, something pissed off Williams after this Rookie vs. Sophomores game enough for him to give the one-finger salute.

4. MIKE DITKA, CHICAGO BEARS
• It's real hard to look this cool and give the finger. Another reason why Ditka will remain one of the all time greats—unlike this asshole.

3. JACK MCDOWELL, NEW YORK YANKEES, 1995
• Flipping off opposing fans isn't really anything special, but giving home fans the finger after getting bombed? Yeah, that's badass.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. MICHAEL VICK, ATLANTA FALCONS, 2006
• Vick was fined $10,000 for showing his version of the dirty bird; we bet he would have paid that 100 times over to avoid what was in store for him. Damn, doggy!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. BUD ADAMS, TENNESSEE TITANS OWNER, 2009
• Who said all NFL owners are boring billionaires with no personality or sense of humor? Bud put his own twist on the home crowd's cheer in this clip.
