ATHLETE APOLOGIES? SORRY TO EVERYONE ELSE, WE'RE GOING WITH LATRELL SPREWELL

[Ed's note: Not sure what All-World Power Rankings is? Please click here.]

This is a slightly dicey topic. Like all of us, athletes periodically do bad things and, because they're public figures, they oftentimes need to apologize. Current Titans QB Kerry Collins once had to apologize to a small group of African-American players on the Panthers; it's just another remarkable step in a legitimately interesting career. We decided to rank athlete apologies over time. Caveat: we realize most of these were for serious trangressions and we're not taking that lightly. If nothing else, you can look to this URL as an index of athletes doing the mea culpa tango over time.
