Bill Parcells: Dirty Dozen 2010

Each year, New Times puts together a list of the sketchiest

politicians and unholiest celebrities and weirdest human beings to call

the Magic City home. So who made the filthy cut this year? We're

releasing the names one by one ahead of next week's issue, which comes

with a full-page illustration of the dynamic dozen.


They call him Big Tuna because he left the Miami Dolphins fan base nothing but dirty rotten dead fishes named Jeff Ireland, Tony Sparano and Chad Henne. Miami's football franchise and owner Stephen Ross should call in the Miami-Dade Police Department and file a burglary report against Bill Parcells. That ogre masquerading as a grind-iron genius quit on the Dolphins midway through another season of mediocrity, walking away from a four year contract he signed in 2007. Of course, he departed with the millions of dollars Ross and former owner Wayne Huzienga paid him.

The rest of the Dirty Dozen:

Jennifer Lopez
Rick Scott
Carlos Alvarez and Norman Braman
