The 25 Biggest Joke Athletes in Sports History

10. Eugene Robinson

Sport: Football
Career Years: 1985-2000
Career Lowlight: Arrested for soliciting a prostitute night prior to Super Bowl.

Every year, the Christian group Athletes in Action gives out the Bart Starr award the day before the Super Bowl to a football player who exhibits the type of high moral character that its namesake personified throughout his legendary career. In 1999, that award went to Robinson. So how did he celebrate, you may ask? Eschewing the typical "friends and family" style of celebration, Robinson went out and offered a prostitute $40 for oral sex. The only problem was that she also happened to be a cop. After getting out of jail early the next morning Robinson gave up an 80-yard touchdown pass in the Super Bowl, ensuring that nobody would ever remember him for his otherwise solid career.
