Although it's probably a bit unfair to include fatal accidents in this. That would basically be everyone who died while taking part in a sport.

No, I don't agree with Shumacher. The average F1 fan and sports fans in general remember him for his dominance during the early to mid-2000's when he won those five world championships in a row.
The casual fan probably doesn't even remember that bullshit he attempted with Jacques Villeneauve during that last race which ended up getting him DQ'ed

Actually Villeneuve may be remembered more for voicing his strong opinions on anything or anyone nowadays. I actually love Jacques and loved it when he came out and said he left Quebec because of the French language laws (although I think it may have been more about him owing a shit load of back taxes lol). Also I loved his comments about Lance and Lawrence Stroll.

Anyway, I am going to nominate Jeremy Mayfield for this list....Or should I say, Jeremy METHfield.

I'd be more specific in this. Jim Kelly? Losing the Superbowls wasn't the highlight of his career, but he's not remembered for that in the same way that Fran Tarkenton isn't. Zidane is a World Cup/Champions League winning player, at times the best in the world, and has since become a Champions League winning manager. The headbutt is just an odd footnote to his career. Yes, they may have won the final if he'd been on the pitch, but it happened late in extra time and penalties are a crap shoot.

I'm more inclined to think of guys who had one moment in history that will forever be associated with their name. Bucknor and Norwood are the two that really stand out, because they happened on the biggest stage. I suppose O.J. too belongs if you're talking about their "worst moment" without the qualifier of having taken place on the field.

Jackie Smith's infamous dropped pass in the end zone in Super Bowl XIII. It didn't really decide the outcome of the game as the Cowboys were only down 21-14 and there were still plenty of time left, but Smith will forever be remembered for that play despite a Hall-of-Fame career.

My bad beejmi already mentioned it earlier and I never saw it.

It's funny because I am never quite sure what the defining blooper in Tony Romo's career was.  I guess this is the one that started it all.  I think his game-ending interception versus the Giants in the 2007 divisional playoffs (with the Cowboys having the #1 seed and home field advantage ) was his worst moment since that was probably his best shot at winning the Super Bowl, but everybody seems to remember the botched hold against the Seahawks.  It became the moment everyone keeps referring back to whenever he makes one of his big-game blunders.

Steve Smith scoring on his own goal in game 7 vs. Calgary, costing the oilers the series and probably costing them five cups in a row since they won the two previous years and the two years after that.

I remember Garo Yepremian for his passing attempt. Titus O'Neil for his safe at home slide.
