We know that when athletes get frustrated they lose their sportsmanship so what is the most memorable unsportsmanlike behaviors in sports that you remember? I'll assume every Yankees fan would remember Roger Clemens' incident with Mike Piazza in the 2000 World Series. Every Packers and Vikings fan would also remember Randy Moss' moon taunt to the fans in Lambeau Field and Joe Buck condemns it as a "disgusting act". Some people might also remember the person who attacked Nancy Kerrigan in the 1994 Winter Olympic Games. For me I have to go for DeSean Jackson's taunting penalty against the Giants which was pretty stupid. I also remember Dominic Raiola's stupid stomp against the Bears which gave him a one game suspension.

IMO Greg Anthony should have been banned for a full season w/o pay. At minimum.

Moss's moon was hilarious and well deserved (Pack fans are relentlessly bad to players) - and proved what a joke Joe Buck is.

As to true lacking of sportsmanship, probably the Pistons walking out before the end of a play-off game against the Bulls. Nothing worse than a sore loser. It ended up costing Isiah quite a lot.

I also remember once that Carlos Zambrano got suspended for throwing a tantrum against his former teammate for the Chicago Cubs Derek Lee.

I would also assume that every Browns fans would remember the incident between Orlando Brown and referee Jeff Triplette where Triplette accidentally hits Brown in the eye and he shoves Triplette to the ground. Originally he was suspended indefinitely though the NFL lifted the suspension because the injury was not healing at the time.

A few from the NHL that I recall... extremely violent:

Roberto Alomar spitting on the umpire. In the early 70's, a basketball game between Ohio State and Minnesota. I remember a Minnesota player offering his hand to an OSU player to help him up, and then kicking him in the groin. The Minnesota players acted like crazed thugs once the brawl started.

Ohio State vs Minnesota in hoops in the early 70's. A fight broke out, and the Minnesota players acted like crazed thugs. One even kicked an OSU player in the groin while extending his hand to help him up! Also, Roberto Alomar spitting on the umpire. Anybody remember a pitcher named Bruce Kison in the 70's? He was a headhunter with his pitches.
