Busch and Edwards make Complex.com list of 50 dirtiest athletes

Complex.com -- a pop culture and style website and magazine -- recently released a slideshow of "The 50 Dirtiest Players in Sports History."

Yes, that's history, so conceivably, every NASCAR driver was eligible for Complex's list, but only two present-day drivers made it: Kyle Busch and Carl Edwards. (Side note: It always amuses us when people who have no clue about NASCAR attempt to be knowledgeable.)

Edwards, who was No. 48, made the list because of his flip of Brad Keselowski. Interestingly, there was no mention of the fact that many in the NASCAR fanbase feel that Keselowski is a "dirtier" driver.

Busch came in at No. 38, and the video that the site used for his example was of his middle finger towards NASCAR at Texas. Really Complex, really? If during-competition middle fingers makes one dirty, the entire list should have been comprised of NASCAR drivers.

In an awesome twist, the comments below the main page are about NASCAR, wondering why Dale Earnhardt Sr. isn't on the list. Who else do you think should have been on the list?

If we were compiling a list of the 10 dirtiest drivers in NASCAR, I'd wager that Busch and Edwards wouldn't be near the top.
