Apparently I'm not understanding the definition of tough being used here. Seemingly "tough" in the new age is looking like Charles Bronson or Chuck Norris for the one quarter that you play, getting injured yet again, and making meaningful grimacing gestures from the sidelines. Buck Pierce is not football tough. He should've taken up a sport like Tennis or Golf.

WE need a category for best trash talker and nastiest player? seriously?

Who can tell that present day pro sports loves the drama all day any day.
