Running Back. 2003-2009. Larry Johnson. 1. player. 124.

A lot of you probably think he shouldn’t be this high since he actually played pretty well for us, but I don’t care.

I can’t stand Larry Johnson and he without a doubt is the most disliked Chiefs player for me. Not only was he arrogant and an all around jackass, but he was a criminal too. He has been arrested numerous times for assaulting women. He’s just a terrible person.

While a member of the Chiefs, Johnson caused plenty of problems for everyone. When he was initially drafted, Johnson and head coach Dick Vermeil did not get along at all. Vermeil at one point said Johnson needed to take his diapers off, and obviously things blew up from there and trade rumors started to circulate. That would have been nice.

Somehow though, Larry was still a Chief through the 2009 season. Johnson still decided he didn’t want to get along with anyone, and head coach at the time Todd Haley was now his greatest enemy. He took to Twitter to slam Haley,

"“My father played for the coach from “remember the titans”. Our coach played golf. My father played for redskins briefly. Our coach. Nuthn.”"

What a charmer, right? It gets worse though, believe me.

When someone retorted to Johnson’s tweet, he responded with a derogatory three letter word. Then he kept tweeting.

"“Make me regret it. Lmao. U don’t stop my checks. Lmao. So ‘tweet’ away.”"

I don’t get how such an idiotic human being was allowed to play in the NFL for as long as this douche bag was. I don’t care if he was good, he’s an idiot.

Something I still laugh about to this day is when Johnson was close to breaking Priest Holmes‘ franchise record and the team waived him.

I laughed for days and days, and occasionally still have a good laugh about it. This guy was a grade A douche bag and his post NFL problems prove just that. If he could get out of the news forever, I’d be okay with that.

Larry Johnson is number one on my list for the simple face that he’s an idiot, a criminal, and overall an awful person.
