    Glad to see Iconelli earned Angler of the Year honors. Love or hate him, Iconelli is a driving force in getting BASS in the mainstream, much like the success of Jeff Gordon in NASCAR.

    Props to Iconelli for taking a fairly regional sport and turning it on its head. I would imagine BASS has never been more popular than it is now.

    You got to admit - the man is good at it.

    But I think that lots of people here can give him a run for his money. :0a14:

    Of course you are going to be good at fishing and learn if you get paid to do it and that's all you do.

    I personally think he should have not even been considered for this Honor!!
    Have you peaple forgot about his temper tantrom? It wasn't in my opinion just a running light that he destroyed,he was also using it to display our
    nations flag.Not a thing to do given the situation our country is in.

    JUST MY 2 CENTS!!!!

    I agree, with Iaconelli goin off on his tantrum, I don't think he deserves it, but I'll give him credit for he is very good at putting weight on the board.

    Iaconelli relates to alot of people. That temper tantrum just brought more publicity, more endorsements and more than likely alot more fans. He just showed hes human just like the rest of us. His passion from the love of his sport flows out of him sometimes good sometimes less than favorable in some eyes but it brings money/ratings/publicity and everything that goes along with it. How many of us has lost a good fish to fall out in the boat or cut a jig after landing a hawg?:cool2:

    I don't think he qualifies as a roll model or a hero. He needs an attitude adjustment. There are a lot of pros just as good as he is and they don't act like he does. This is my opinion. I don't like Ico.:angry: :angry: :angry:
