who would you most like to see retire?

which one player or coach would you most like to see retire?

1 player/coach total.. not one per sport..

could be a first year player or a 20th year player..
could be any sport.

but who would you most like to see leave their sport now?


(yea I know.. we will have a large handful of bonds haters and people that want him gone because they dont want him to break the record.. but I figure some people can actually be a little more original, so those are the answers Im looking for)

this can be at the pro or college level (college would be more for coaches)

this does NOT include owners and general managers (or agents for that matter)

I figured most people would go after players/coaches from other teams

but I guess that works too

No, I just remember a shot of him in a Monday night game last year where he was attempting to hold onto his youth through his hairstyle, and it just wasn't working!

Other than that, I think he may be the second greatest player of all time (behind Jim Brown).

I respect Rice, but I hate his ****ing guts.

I think Derek Jeter should clearly retire. Despite his homerun today, it's clear the game has passed him by. Time to retire with dignity.

Yeah, he should have gone out with Stockton.

Being a Brewers fan, I would really like to see Bud Selig retire before he screws up the excellent farm system they have.

Actually I change my vote from Bud Selig to Daunte Culpepper. I can't stand him and the thing he does with his hands when he rolls them. Culpepper and Moss are a couple of punks who would will not be missed when they retire.

Is he gonna play another season? If so, then yeah, him. Because it's time. Same with Karl Malone.

While they have their great moments, they're not nearly the same players as they used to be. It's kinda sad to see them struggle.

That's like asking people if they'd like $1M, then telling them not to answer "yes, please."

Anyway, Jimy Williams, Jimy Williams, a thousand times, Jimy Williams.

Wow, surprised to see so many people want Karl Malone to go, especially since he's still playing well at 40.

As for me, i'd like to see Piazza retire. His numbers are slipping, he's got the home run record for a catcher, and i think he's already got a HoF career. End it on a good note.
