Idrc about the best trash talker and nastiest player. In fact I see more reason for them to be there then for them to not.
This is the definition I suspected was being used. Getting injured frequently isn't tough. Certainly not in the ironman kind of tough and resilient way most people would think about the term. Put it this way, Buck is getting misjudged as "tough" on the basis of getting frequently injured. If he wasn't getting frequently injured people aren't voting him "toughest". In essense they're voting for the guy that falls on the field in a crumpled heap the most times..

Really its silly to suggest that the player that in the entire league is the least suitable for playing football is the "toughest" player. Its a strange notion and voted on by people that really didn't think it through apparently.
