Michael Vick is the most hated sports figure

A market research firm E-poll recently took a poll of the most hated athletes in sports.  The group took the response of around 1,100 people who were 13 and over and asked them to rate controversial sports figures using a scale of “dislike some”, “dislike” or “dislike a lot”.  Here are the results:

10. John McEnroe – Even after nearly 30 years, McEnroe is still hated.  Just imagine if he had raped someone or taken steroids to go along with his image.

$20 says it's "You can't be serious!"

9. Nick Saban – Bounced out of the Dolphins after Alabama gave him a job…just after he said he wouldn’t.  How many times does that happen in sports?  ALL THE TIME.

Im rich, bitch

I'm rich, bitch

8. Stephon Marbury – The media wants to destroy him because of the Knicks.  Now he’s trying to tell his side of the story on JustinTV. You judge whether that’s a good idea or not.

People must hate the tatoo on the side of his head

7. Isiah Thomas – Hated when he played for the Pistons.  Hated when he was the coach of the Knicks.

Can you say sexual harassment

6. Allen Iverson – Perceived by many as too “hood” and too “real” by the average white American.

Can you tell that hes averages 27 points, 6 assists and 2 steals over his entire career

5. Kobe Bryant – The rape will just not go away even after the 81 point performance.  Though this image doesn’t show up as the top 20 photos in Google images anymore.

Not a happy mugshot Mr Bryant?

Not a happy mugshot taker, Mr Bryant?

4. Terrell Owens – The T.O. show will not help him with his image.  The show is in one word: boring

Stephon Marbury cries, I cry too

Stephon Marbury cries, I cry too

3. Alex Rodriguez – Did you see Madonna’s arms? People tend to hate the athletes that get paid a lot of money and spend that money on steroids.

2. Manny Ramirez – Only the city that he plays for likes him.  Pete Carroll is the exception.

Steroids?  Eh, it happens

Steroids? Eh, it happens

1. Michael Vick – The most hated sports figure is Michael Vick.  This is understandable since he killed dogs.  But the media has bashed him to the point that they want him to not continue living.

Back when he loved dogs...as pets

Who is the one person that I’m surprised that was left out on this list?  Ron Artest!  Doesn’t anyone remember him beating up fans?
