When you think “internet message boards” you don’t tend to think of athletic prowess, but one Redditor decided to put that notion to the test. So here are some examples of the best sports trash-talking heard or said by the athletes of Reddit.
Player on the other team: Hey, you aren’t wearing a mouth-guard!
My teammate: Yeah, your mom loves it when I don’t wear protection.
I went to a small Christian high school and we played a Jewish school at football. They weren’t in our league so we had a pre-season game them for the first time my Sophomore year. Their pre-game chant went something along the lines of, “We killed Jesus! We can kill you too!” I was slightly horrified but I couldn’t stop laughing because it was kind of clever. Ironically, we beat them by quite a big margin.
After a huge block: “TAKE THAT WEAK SHIT BACK TO CANDYLAND!”
During a basketball game the other team had a center standing in the lane for the entire possession. A fan yelled at the ref, “that’s three seconds!” My coach turned to the fan and said dead panned, “He can’t count that high.”
Our football team would shave their legs and sometimes wear ladies make-up to freak out visiting teams.
I’m a pretty regular looking soccer player. Athletic but not muscular, average height don’t have a silly haircut or any abnormal body features and I’d played a pretty solid game. So the crowd was pretty quiet as I walked up, I could just tell they were trying to pin something on me. My jersey number is 22, not really something you can call someone out on (unlike unlucky #13 or something). So they said, “Your number is a palindrome!”
This was a soccer game and it was getting real intense. Ref gives an absolutely bullshit red card. Guy yells out, “Fuck you ref I know where you buy your tacos!!!”
At a Jays’ game and one of our outfielders, Colby Rasmus, was playing particularly bad. The old timer behind us started throwing insults, the most memorable one being, “IF YOU WERE A MONOPOLY SPOT, YOU’D BE BALTIC AVENUE.”
"That guy chooses to eat Turkey Bacon!”
I played water polo through high school and college. A good friend was on the team, and a bit crazy (in a good way). She used to whisper in the ear of the people she was defending: “I’m peeing on you.”
Was playing ice hockey and we had a real smartass on our team. In this league girls were allowed to play as well and this team had two scary big girls on their team. This guy on my team got a penalty for tripping and yelled, “Hey ref you might as well call those girls for this high stick they gave me too!”
I did hear a hockey player tell the opposing team’s goalie “YOU’RE MODERATELY SUCCESSFUL, O'BRIEN!”
