Bo Pelini's Rant Isn't Close To The Best Coach Rant Of All Time

Illustration for article titled Bo Pelinis Rant Isnt Close To The Best Coach Rant Of All Time

OK, maybe the Nebraska coach had some strong words for "fucking fair-weather" fans and certain media members. He's still quite a few F-bombs away from the all-time greatest coach meltdown.


Manager Lee Elia's rant about Cubs fans turned 30 this year, and what makes it the undisputed champ is that Elia knew it was being recorded and would be published later that day. It's a masterpiece of unrestrained, uncreative profanity—and shockingly, Elia held onto his job for another four months.

Here's the transcript: the audio and backstory is below.

I'll tell you one fuckin' thing - I hope we get fuckin' hotter than shit just to stuff it up them three thousand fuckin' people that show up every fuckin' day. Because if they're the real Chicago fuckin' fans, they can kiss my fuckin' ass, right Downtown, and print it! They're really, really behind you around here. My fuckin' ass! What...what the fuck am I supposed to do? Go out there and get destroyed,and be quiet about it? For the fuckin' nickel/dime people that show up? The motherfuckers don't even work! That's why they're out at the fuckin' game! They ought to get a fuckin' job and find out what it's like to go out and earn a fuckin' living. Eighty-five percent of the fuckin' world is working. The other fifteen come out here. A fuckin' playground for the cocksuckers. Rip them motherfuckers! Rip those country cocksuckers, like the fuckin' players! We've got guys bustin' their fuckin' asses and those fuckin' people boo...and that's the Cubs? My fuckin' ass! They talk about the great fuckin' support that the players get around here, I haven't seen it this fuckin' year!
