Ever heard of Conrad Dobler? Certainly you've heard of Mean Joe Green. And although I mostly know him as an actor, Dad has told me stories about Dick Butkus. What do football GM's like in their players? They like them MEAN. So, who's on your all-meanie list?

Chuck Bednarik. Jason Varitek (anyone who shatters their elbow diving for a pop-up then whips said arm around to test if it still works effectively makes the cut). John Wensink for challenging an entire bench and getting no takers.

The two-headed monster known as Rick Mahorn and Bill Laimbeer...want to drive the lane on the Pistons in the late 80s? Better get your riot gear on first...

Well, the meanest bastard of all-time has got to be Ty Cobb, but I'd also add Ulf Samuelsson, a cheap-shot artist who helped shorten Cam Neely's career. Tie Domi earned my undying love he sucker-punched this rat bastard.

Oh yeah, the Bad Boys in Detroit. They were great, and they really had the talent to back it up as well. And didn't Laimbeer break his nose at one point and have to wear one of those masks? Jesus H. he looked like something out of a science fiction movie.

For me personally, I gotta go back to when I was a kid and pick Boston Bruins enforcer Jay Miller. Everytime he stepped on the ice you knew he was going to throw down. And a lot of times, that was with the hated Montreal Canadiens. This was the only good picture I could find of him, and it's a shame he's in an LA Kings uniform.
