Classiest (In no order)
-TO crying while defending Romo, iunno if this is classy but it showed a different side of TO
-LaDanian Tomlinson, always very humble. aside from last years disrespect towards Belichick, which was deserved albeit, LT is very classy
-Peyton Manning/Brett Farve, classey QBs with respect for the game and its players
-Marvin Harrison, really humble and is never a problem
-Warrick Dunn, has gone threw a lot and great, charitable guy

Classless (in no order)
-Albert Haynesworth stomping
-Bill Belichick (insert any incident). this guys is the most classless guy in the NFL. he cheats, makes a mockery of the injury system, terrible guy to interview, rude to the media, and leaves the field early in XLII.
-Pacman Jones, you would think he would learn not to get arrested after like the 5th time
-Old TO/Randy Moss, real cancers in the locker room, but have since cleaned up their games.
-Ricky Williams, hurt his career and single handily destroyed the falcons franchise in the past couple of years.

TJ Houshmanzadeh (sp?)- while he can back it up, his team can't and him cleaning off his shoes with a terrible towel was dumb and classless, especially since they have been getting owned by everyone everywhere the past oh 15 years?? yea.

Thumbs down

FLOP 5:

5. Rodney Harrison (cheap shot artist)
4. Albert Haynesworth (cleats guys in the face)
3. Chad Johnson (used to back him, but with all the B.S. he's pulling no more)
2. Kimo Von Olehoffen (For "Accidentally" driving through and tearing up Carson Palmer's Knee).
1. Terrell Owens (probably the worst Teammate in history)

TOP 5:
5. Donald Driver
4. Warrick Dunn
3. A.J. Hawk
2. Marvin Harrison
1. Walter Payton (I never seen him play as I was born in 88 but my dad has always spoken favorably about him, and I've heard about all the awesome things he did. Rest in peace)

I get the Randy Moss ass act picks, but I think you can disregard the packer fan mooning. Yeah he's an ass act because of the ref water bottle squirt, walking off the field, "straight cash homie", but dont count the mooning. Everyone likes to give it to the rival fans, it was the playoffs, emotions running high, and Joe "I love the Packers" Buck blew the whole thing out of proportion.

top 5? I'm sure I'm missing some people, but this is off the top of my head and browsing this thread.

1. Warrick Dunn - speaks for himself
2. Derrick Brooks - ". anyone who has seen or heard him mic'd up after the hit that ended Gannon's career should know as well.
3. Ben Roethlisberger - seems like a really nice guy. srsly.
4. Torry Holt - again, really friendly, nice, intellectual person
5. Tony Dungy - nothing bad can be said about this man.

Bottom 5:

1. Bill Belichick - complete turd and POS
2. Jerramy Stevens - "
3. TO - selfish turd, spit on Hall.
4. Phillip Rivers - class guy off the field, but man does he look like an idiot when he's on it. QBs shouldn't spout their mouths off like he does.
5. A tie between a few former Miami players: Ray Lewis for his pathetic dancing and screaming, Shockey for being a hothead, and Sean Taylor (RIP) for spitting on Michael Pittman and being a headhunter.

No PacMan Jones....why? The man has a problem and really shouldn't be associated with the NFL. I exclude players that don't have an "NFL lifestyle" to them....players that don't change from HS to the pros.

Personally I don't see anything wrong with the Randy Moss mooning either. It was pretty funny and Packers fans seriously need to stop getting so defensive and develop a sense of humor.

Class Acts

1. Kyle Vanden Bosch - First person to come to mind, though maybe not the worthiest. Drafted by Arizona, but was riddled with injuries his entire time there. He left in FA, and signed with the Titans for vet minimum. He then recorded a 12.5 Sack season, and was rewarded a long-term deal. An extremely nice guy, and that only makes him more likeable. He goes all out on every play, and has expressed his appreciation for the Titans and the Nashville community whenever he's given the chance.

2. Tony Dungy - Basically default on this. Always polite and respectful to everyone. I admire his perserverance in overcoming all of the obstacles he's been faced with. I don't think anyone dislikes this man, and if they do, they belong on the "Ass Acts" list.

3. Warrick Dunn - Again, default. With all that he's done with his organization to help needy mothers is awesome. You not only have to admire someone who's generous, but also someone who helps women. Chivalry is not dead.

4. Donovan McNabb - The dude not only is the QB in Philly and is scrutinized heavily for not being perfect, but he also had to deal with the TO ordeal and the media makes it seem like there's a never ending QB controversy there. Plus, all the injuries he tends to get. Yet, McNabb has handled it better than most people would be able to. Most young QB's would have imploded after all that McNabb has had to put up with, let alone play at a Pro Bowl level.

5. Drew Brees - Elected to sign with New Orleans the season after Katrina. He knowingly took on the burden of that situation, and helped give that city a positive to combat the massive negative. Though, you can't leave the rest of the Saints out.


Ass Acts

1. Bill Belichick - I don't have to explain, do I?

2. Rodney Harrison - Notoriously dirty player, but after he re-injured his knee when he was legally blocked by Bobby Wade, he started complaining and accusing Wade of delivering a dirty hit. What a hypocrite.

3. Shawne Merriman - Busted for using steroids, and is noted for doing a celebratory dance after he sacks a QB. That alone is classless, but what takes the cake is him saying that Jeff Fisher issued a "hit" on him after Merriman knocked Vince Young off of his feet after Young had handed the ball off to the RB. After practically everyone and their mother refuted that notion, Merriman later changed his mind about his allegation. Heh..

4. Terrell Owens - He's still a major Jerkasaurus Rex.

5. Phillip Rivers - Like etk said. The guy is ok off of the field, but on it, he must live in his own world. The sad thing is that it doesn't matter if his opponent just made him use his chin strap as a pacifier or what. He'll continue to talk, point, and argue with a fan or two.

Brees would have signed with Miami had they not passed on him.

How about give me a break dude, at least read before you have a hissy. But I stand by what I said about Brady, no way is he a class act.

Edit: It makes me sad that I havent seen any more Rod Smith love. He was the master of classy, as well as Ed McCaffery.

I might be wrong here, but hasn't anyone else seen Marvin Harrison pout like a baby on the sidelines during games? I agree 100% with him being classy in the fact that he doesn't run his mouth, and he's never been a headache by any means. I swear I've seen him showing the same body language LDT did during this past year's playoffs that got him skewered, and never really heard it commented on.

Or maybe I'm just crazy. :P

And amen to the one Leonard Little post.

I swear I've seen him showing the same body language LDT did during this past year's playoffs that got him skewered, and never really heard it commented on.

Or maybe I'm just crazy. :P

And amen to the one Leonard Little post.
I think I know what you're talking about in regards to Marvin Harrison and I don't think he was pouting like a baby, I think he was just upset at the situation.

Class is not defined as never getting angry or upset. Class is how you handle a situation (most likely one that would get angry or upset). And I think going to the sideline and discussing your situation with the coach / QB is a lot more classy than bitching on the field.

I think what makes Marvin Harrison a class act is when he reaches the end zone, he doesn't need to celebrate it. Its not the first time he's been there and he knows it won't be the last time. Not many wide receivers can resist celebrating their success like no one else has ever seen an end zone before.

Pretty much anyone who can do their job, and not expect to be patted on the back like a 9 month old baby who just took its first step is a class act. This includes all (but not restricted to) defensive players that walk back to the huddle and keep their focus after a big play.

Nothing speaks for your lack of class like doing a dance or talking smack after you tackle / sack someone (and no, I'm not speaking about just merriman - there are plenty of defensive players on every team who think they're hot shots because they made 1 play).

As a bengals fan I've seen plenty of end zone dancing and I don't really care if you dance or don't dance - but its certainly not classy.

Tony Dungy has class. The way he handles every situation he has been in is almost the exact definition of class.

Peyton Manning doesn't exemplify class - I see why people are posting it, but he doesn't handle himself or the situations he's in with the most class. Thats not to say he isn't a class act, but he's not on the extreme side of class that you would want to put him in the top 5.

Also, I believe Joe Gibbs is a class act. He's been in some really bad situations and some really good situations, and he handled them all pretty well.

I think Mercury Morris (I know he's not involved with the league as a coach / player right now) has the least amount of class out of anyone - I've never seen anyone talk as much as trash (and sing??) as he does every single year that ESPN brings him out to talk about a team that may or may not go undefeated. And the only guy that can possibly top Mercury Morris is Pac-man Jones - "making it rain" isn't exactly classy.

Yeah cause saying we had some problems in protection is berating the OL. Watch Brady's post game of the Raven's gave this year. He never once gives the Ravens credit for a good game, but says that his team did a lot of things wrong.

Classless (in no order)
-Albert Haynesworth stomping
-Bill Belichick (insert any incident). this guys is the most classless guy in the NFL. he cheats, makes a mockery of the injury system, terrible guy to interview, rude to the media, and leaves the field early in XLII.
-Pacman Jones, you would think he would learn not to get arrested after like the 5th time
-Old TO/Randy Moss, real cancers in the locker room, but have since cleaned up their games.
-Ricky Williams, hurt his career and single handily destroyed the falcons franchise in the past couple of years.
Ricky Williams? Did you mean Michael Vick or Dolphins instead of Falcons?

Class Acts - Zach Thomas and Jason Taylor! Two of my favourite players.

His career is still young but Joe Thomas has seemed like a great guy with a team first personality.
