The 25 Biggest Joke Athletes in Sports History

11. Todd Marinovich

Sport: Football
Career Years: 1991-1992
Career Lowlight: Arrested for cocaine possession his senior year of college.

In the pantheon of overbearing sports parents, Marv Marinovich will forever be the standard bearer. In a quest to make his son Todd the greatest quarterback of all time, he began strength training him from the time he was in the crib. Not shockingly, Todd started acting out as a teenager, smoking weed on a daily basis and occasionally eating the fast food his father expressly forbade. The "Robo Quarterback" eventually ended up at USC, where he was arrested for cocaine possession before declaring for the 1991 NFL Draft. He was nevertheless drafted in the first round by (who else?) the Oakland Raiders, but washed out of the league by 1992.
