Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the winner and still champion of the politically incorrect sports world, a vast and untamed universe.

It is not Shaquille O'Neal, who speaks of women as if they were some feeble and unworthy species. It is not Barry Bonds, who just doesn't care that everybody finds him so unsavory. It is not those stubborn Marquette students, hellbent on insulting the Native American population, demanding a return to an old nickname best forgotten.

No, these contenders are hardly worth mentioning in the same column with the only mouth that really matters, the one belonging to that master of upside-down causes and persecution complexes, John Rocker.

In his latest wacky diatribe, spoken between very occasional relief outings for the minor-league Long Island Ducks in Central Islip, Rocker told ESPN.com in his elegant fashion that he has endured more dire circumstances than black baseball pioneers, Jackie Robinson and Hank Aaron.

"I've taken a lot of crap from a lot of people," Rocker said. "Probably more than anybody in the history of this sport. I know Hank and Jackie took a good deal of crap, but I guarantee it wasn't for six years. I just keep thinking: How much am I supposed to take?"

----------------------

Wow.

Cause when you think of the great warriors for equality and acceptance in sports, you think John Rocker.

Jackie Robinson, Hank Aaron, Fritz Pollard, Muhammed Ali, Babe Didrikson, Arthur Ashe, Lee Elder and John Rocker. Yep.

Wow, I don't even follow baseball (at all), and yet I still find that statement quite appalling. Just for him to try and be the victim and then saying that Hank Aaron and Jackie Robinson didn't take as much "crap".... It's like when Michael Jackson compares himself to Nelson Mandela. You just have to shake your head and wonder how these people can live in their own little worlds like this.

That may be the greatest line I've read on this board in a long time. Thank you.

Yes, Rocker, I know for a fact that Jackie Robinson only took "crap" for 4 and 1/2 years at the most.

Hey be nice. We're going to the Pads game on Thursday. Rumor has it that if you wear a bright yellow Packer baseball jersey, you can be spotted all the way across the stadium!
