A tale of the Tape: The Nutter vs. Pac Man


Over the last couple of weeks few athletes have the impact on their sports like Liverpool striker Craig Bellamy and Tennessee Titans defensive back PacMan Jones. I wanted to see who was hard-core, so I decided to run the tale of the tape on both of them. So here we go.


Jones: PacMan.

Bellamy: The Nutter with the Putter, Craig "The Baby Eater'' Bellamy, and Bells.

Advantage: Bellamy, its plain and simple he hits team mates with golf clubs and eats babies, need I say more.

The Early Years

Jones: an all-state running back in Georgia then went on to be a troublemaker at the University of West Virginia

Bellamy: Started at Norwich City and then just kept moving.

Advantage: PacMan, any one who can go from Georgia to West Virginia and not have a drinking problem is a hero of mine.

Professional issues

Jones: Drafted Sixth overall in the 2005 draft, then missed most of training camp because of a hold out.
Bellamy: When Newcastle tried to unload him to a Birmingham City he wrote Newcastle chairman Freddy Sheppard a text message that read: "I am Craig Bellamy and I don't sign for shit football clubs.'' Bellamy also got into a drunken text-messaging feud with former New Castle teammate Alan Shearer.
Advantage: Bellamy, any time you use a text messaging to tell you boss an employer to go to hell its a good thing. Can you image PacMan doing that to Jeff Fisher? That would be end of PacMan.

Legal Issues

Jones: Started in 2005 with a fight at a West Virginia nightclub, then In October 2005 got in trouble for not going to probation officer. Hey that is just when he was in college. The NFL that is a different story, he has been cited by police for no less then three different incidents, including the "Making it rain" incident during NBA All-Star weekend.
Bellamy: Craig and his wife's honeymoon was interrupted when Bellamy was due back in Cardiff to answer to Magistrates over his bail extension, following an alleged assault on a 19-year-old girl in a Cardiff nightclub in March 2006 in which he allegedly grabbed the girl's throat; he was later acquitted.
Advantage: Jones, for the simplest reason that he went to college with Chris Henry and the two of them both made it out alive.

Off the wall behavior

Jones: loves to make it rain.

Bellamy: used teammates John Arna Riise's leg as a driving range after he refused to sing a Robbie Williams song.

Advantage: Bellamy, for the only reason that both Bellamy and Riise scored in the Liverpool’s win at Barcelona in the Champions League.


When you break this down, its easy to see that Bellamy is completely crazy and a bigger nut job then a person that makes it rain.
