Top 20 Most Ridiculous Haircuts In Sports

Fashion is a subjective topic and something we freely admit to not being experts here at The Sportster. But every now and again an athlete expresses their showmanship in a manner that simply defies belief.

From mullets to afros, rats tails to buzz cuts, pampered sports stars prove to us time and again that they have too much time and too much money on their hands. Sane people do not make these choices. People who pay their taxes and go to their 9 to 5 jobs have responsibilities to uphold. Somewhere along the line these athletes fell into the entertainment bubble and never got out. As Eric Blatterberg showed us earlier this year, crazy haircuts are best left to the wrestling fraternity. The theatre and spectacle of the sport demands a certain panache to set the scene and keep the viewer interested, but not for other sports.

What coach would want his running back screaming down the touchline with dreadlocks reaching down to his ankles? Or what type of basketball shooter requires a fringe that drops below the eye line? These are occupational hazards and they need to be called out for their insanity. As modern 21st century society adapts to an evolving populous we change our definition of what is and is not acceptable. But as sports fans we need to put our foot down and hold onto some traditional values. It’s time to put away the scissors and prepare the straitjacket.

Now we have to bring out our little black notebook to name and shame those 20 athletes who sported the craziest haircuts. Parental discretion is advised.

1 Dennis Rodman

Larger than life Dennis Rodman takes the cake for the craziest haircuts in sports. The only problem is, we don’t really know which one to talk about. Bright blue, pink, orange, yellow, green, Earnie cartoons, afros, Bulls logos, you name it Dennis wore it on his head. The iconic and divisive basketball star channeled his best work on the court under Phil Jackson with his all star Chicago Bulls team that took the NBA by storm. While Jordan took all the acclaim, it is easy to forget Rodman took the headlines and his hair had a lot to do with it!
