nate newton-- made his mark as a cowboy but was a redskin for a year early on.
riggins- constant anti-social behavior
connell- a thug also
westbrook-- sucker punch your own teammate at practice??
malcolm barnard- how bad are you when al davis can't stand you??

on field:
chris hanburger- almost decapitated some players
charley taylor- perfected the crackback block and cost chuck howley a season
pat fischer- can you say dirty??
sean taylor- already moving up there
ron sellers- both on and off field issues
diron talbert- mean and dirty
ken houston- enforcer par excellance
joe jacoby- a mean streak onthe move
matt millen-- only sorry he only played a season or 2 for the skins
Riggins anti-social? Haha, he is very much the opposite. He is a self-defined entertainer first, football player second.

LOL. I love stories like that. I've got a similar one. Someone mentioned the name Wilbur Marshall on this thread and it made me remember...

Back when I was in HS, my sister and I went to the OLD Redskin Park to get some autographs. It was after school and by luck, as we got there the players were coming out! We approached them as they came out and most were happy to oblige. Then came out Wilbur Marshall. He was the meanist looking dude I'd ever seen, never forget it. He had a big club-like cast on his hand from some injury. Anybody remember what year that was? (I think '88 or '89). Anyways, My sister got scared and said "I'm not approaching him". I thought to myself WTF? What's the worst that can happen? He'll kill me and I'll sue the Redskins and him. LOL

So I went up to him and was directly in front of him and said, "Mr. Marshall can I have an autograph?" He looked right at me with a look of death (for what like seemed like a year), took my pen IN THE HAND WITH THE CAST and signed his name FACING ME on a clipboard I was holding. It was a perfect autograph. It wasn't a scribble, it clearly said "Wilbur Marshall". Remember, he had a complete cast on and he wrote his name upside down! Then he put the pen back down on my clipboard and kept walking, never said a word. Scared the shit out of me.

My sis and I left shortly after that. I had to get home and put on a clean pair of shorts. LOL

Darrell Green?

No way, that guy is a christian family man. I think you ment Darell Russell.
If memory serves me correctly we had a thread on here and the conscensus was Darell Green was pretty much a total asshole off the field. I don't know if that makes him one of the baddest players, but I'm not sure he was the perfect Christian you envision. I believe it was SmootSmack who told a story about a local television station wanting to help out some other 'skins charity. Darrell Green called up and said he wouldn't do any more interviews/etc unless his charity was mentioned at the same time. I believe that was the gist of the story, maybe someone else remembers a bit clearer.

Yeah it was most likely me, because I lived it. Let me just say first that I think Darrell Green is one of the greatest players in Redskins (if not) NFL history and he brought all of us Redskins fans many great memories and DG the player is a huge, huge reason that I became a Redskins fan.

However, I've never been so let down when I met him, and maybe it was because I had him on such a high pedestal. But anyway, as I've mentioned here before I used to work for a tv station in the DC area. So anyway, when I first joined the station I was told that Darrell Green had an unwritten rule-all interviews with and profiles on him must include at least 30 seconds of talk about his charity, and anytime we interviewed another player about his charity work we had to also talk about Green's charity work. Technically it couldn't be enforced but, as everyone knows, the news biz can often be "rub my back, I'll rub yours", and the last thing anyone in the DC news biz wants to do is get on the Redskins bad side. This is one of the reasons he was resented in the locker room. So anyway, I wanted to do a story about Brian Mitchell's charity work on Thanksgiving. Everything was in place and then we got a call from the Redskins "This doesn't air unless you profile Darrell Green's charity work as well" It never aired. There were a lot of players who did charity work that no one ever knew about for that reason.

Another time Darrell Green was in our studio and one of my co-workers came in to the studio with his 6-year old grandson and asked Green if he would sign his grandson's football. Darrell said "No, what's in it for me?" So I was there and said "the satisfaction of making a young kid happy" And he actually said "that's not good enough". And walked away. At least he was kind enough to give me an autograph when I had asked him for one 15 years earlier.

But don't get me wrong, Darrell Green has done a lot of good for the community. It's just that he's not the only one, and sometimes it seems like that what he wants you to believe
