Bill Romanowski is likely a reason many people absolutely hated the Broncos in the 1990s.

As a matter of fact, he is probably one of the most hated athletes in the history of sports.

One of the true bad boys of football, Romanowski signed with the Broncos after stints with the San Francisco 49ers and the Philadelphia Eagles. The year before he got to Denver, he was ejected from a game for kicking a player in the head.


In six seasons with the Broncos, however, Romanowski’s antics didn’t cost him any games. He started every game for six years in Denver, helping the team win their first two Super Bowl titles in franchise history, earning two Pro Bowl nods along the way.

In 16 NFL seasons, Romanowski won four championships.

Dirty or not, the guy was productive, and he helped his teams win a lot of games.
