Florida Well-Represented By SB Nation's Best Sports Trolls

SB Nation Tampa's own Alfie Crow has assembled a murder's row of U MAD sports talent, with notable Floridians Chad Johnson / Ochocinco / Whatever and "Ol' Ball Coach" Steve Spurrier included a list of dubious merit.

First, the OBC, who was rage-rolling opposing SEC coaches before Lane Kiffin was a snotty, bleach-blonde glint in his daddy's Cover-2:

The Ol' Ball Coach is a classic example of a sports troll. Spurrier knows just how to dig at teams, other coaches, and opposing fans. In his glory years with the Florida Gators, Spurrier would run up 50 points on the scoreboard before halftime and try to do it again in the second half. Just because. At one point being voted the most hated football coach in America, Spurrier continues to troll opposing fan bases to this day, and we wait with bated breath at what jabs he has waiting at SEC Media Days.

Spurrier's trolling has reeked of class and refinery in recent years, so it's hard to think he'll even finish in the Top 5 of this swarthy bunch. Case in point - the media-whoringest wide receiver in history, which has been scientifically proven to be the media-whoringest position in sports, minus the entire NBA:

Like proto-troll Terrell Owens before him, Ochocinco has specialized in not giving a single 'F' from day one in the league. His decision to change his last time was designed to incite the anger of crusty, old white dudes who believe pro football has been going to hell in a handbasket ever since Johnny Unitas' haircut went out of fashion. From wearing a serape to live-tweeting a Toys "R" Us excursion, Ochocinco does whatever the hell he wants and his every move is certain to piss off SOMEONE. He gets bonus points for looking like he's having the time of his life while the majority of America grinds their teeth and slowly clenches and unclenches their fists.

Check out the entire list - and vote for your favorite (or least favorite?) troll. Add some parity, because Favre is just running away with the damn thing at the moment...
