Top 10 Most Hated Professional Athletes

102 posts in this topic

Great poll by the way. For what it's worth:

A-Rod - too many reasons to list

Bud Selig (not sure if I'm deviating from the poll parameters) - everytime I see his face I want to punch the TV

Koby Bryant - I even hated him before the whole Colorado deal.

Sean Avery - clown

Scott Gomez - I honestly didn't like him when he was on the Devils (played when he felt like it). But when he joined the Rags ...

Roger Clemmens - has no redeeming qualities

Peyton Manning - can't win the big game, smug, calls out O-lineman at every turn - gutless ... and annoying.

Sidney Crosby - I fell down again, I don't like Alex O because he ate my Cheerios ... dove again...awesome

Barry Bonds - I'm really not sure if anybody in the nation likes him

Serena Williams - loses the second set 6-3, calls medical timeout, loses next two games, forfeits due to "injury." Rinse and repeat.

Ah crap, I forgot sportscasters could be included. I'm gonna ammend my list to include Joe Buck and Al Trautwig. Top 12.

Also, for all the Jose Reyes talk ... didn't Keith Hernandez get into a fight with him on the team plane because he's a cocky little bastard? I don't hate the guy personally, but for a broadcaster and former member of the team to take issue with how a guy carries himself while wearing the uniform ... well ... that kinda speaks volumes.

Yeah alot of ppl hate Joe Buck. I don't get it to be honest.

But thank you. You were absolutely right. Hugh Douglas, broadcaster and former Eagle, got in a fight with TO. Same kind of idea. TO = cocky, arrogant, douchebag. Reyes = cocky, arrogant, douchebag

Not to defend the PTI guys, because they do grate on me sometimes, but Wilbon has repeatedly criticized Crosby. If I can remember correctly, his point that all the talk about Crosby being the best in the World was due to North American bias, and that Ovechkin and Malkin were both better than Crosby. I also remember them criticizing him for his hat trick comments.

Now For My List:

1.) Ulf Samuelson

2.) Sean Avery

3.) Mark Messier

4.) Al Trautwig

5.) A-Rod

6.) Sidney Crosby

7.) Linda Cohn

8.) Terrel Owens

9.) Bill Belichick

10.) Drew Rosenhaus

NJTommo44. I have to say, when I saw this:

7.) Linda Cohn

I laughed so hard I shot a rum and coke out of nose. Appreciate it.

I don't feel like making a list now. But I'm not going to lie, Reyes would probably be on it and I'M A METS FAN. Dumb as a rock and no hustle. He comes off as a big shot, cocky b!tch, yet hasn't won sh!t.

Bud Selig (not sure if I'm deviating from the poll parameters) - everytime I see his face I want to punch the TV

Great call. This guy's entire life is an epic fail. Can we please bring Kenesaw Mountain Landis back to life?

Peyton Manning - can't win the big game, smug, calls out O-lineman at every turn - gutless ... and annoying.

Wow, I thought only Pats fans hated him (wait, are you a Pats fan?). The guy was a Super Bowl MVP, but can't win the big game? He's one of the most self-deprecating celebrities out there, but he's smug? Don't see it myself, but to each his own.

Sidney Crosby - I fell down again, I don't like Alex O because he ate my Cheerios ... dove again...awesome

:lol:

How can anyone hate Peyton? He's just a good 'ole boy that does everything right. He's what you call a 'baller'

He's a cocky pompus jackass on a sub-500 team. It'd be like if after Stasny scored he made fun of marty's then-patented fist pump.

Ok...come at a team that has a 56 million payroll. Who do you like the Yanks or Mets who have 100+ million dollar payrolls.....get real

Payrolls don't equal wins. Just ask the Rangers, circa late-'90s, early-'00s.

Also, Baltimore's payroll is $67M. The defending AL champion Rays' payroll is $63M. And the Yanks actually have a $200M+ payroll. Again, payroll doesn't equal wins.

You can't compare hockey with baseball in terms of payroll. In baseball, chemistry is much less of an issue than it is in hockey. I'm sorry but when you have A-Rod, Texiera, Jeter, Burnett, Damon, Joba, Mariano, CC, Pettitte, Cano, and Swisher it isn't really a fair game. The O's have one solid pitcher in Jeremy Guthrie. They have good bats in Markakis, Adam Jones, Huff, and Roberts, but its a little hard to compete when half of the division are allstars

And yet the Rays won the division and the league last year. With a payroll lower than Baltimore's. The whole, "But that team is nothing but All-Stars," argument goes right out the window when you look as far back in baseball history as last year.

And to get back on track, a dude being cocky is a dude being cocky. His team's payroll shouldn't be a factor in whether it's acceptable or not.

That is because of the young talent they had. You think Longoria is gonna want more money once his current contract is up? What about Kazmir, Sonnanstine, Garza? Crawford? They will not be able to afford some of these players and a team like the Yankees or Red Sox will probably scoop them up. Look at the 03 Marlins. Does Josh Beckett sound familiar? A great young pitcher now on a team with a high payroll.

Huff may be cocky, but that can be said about alot of athletes. The fact that someone on this board was alluding to the fact that he played on a sub .500 team is rediculous

What are we even arguing? M3 said that Huff was a pompous jackass on a sub-500 team. Which is true. For some reason you offered up the Orioles' payroll, or lack thereof, as an excuse for acting like a prick. Or as an excuse for why the Orioles were below .500. To be honest, I'm not sure what you were getting at since neither makes any sense. Now we're talking about the Marlins, who made a regular habit out of winning it all and having firesales immediately afterward?

I apologize for taking up bandwith by participating in an interwebs argument. If you'll excuse me, I'll go do something that kills fewer brain cells, like drinking paint thinner.

Can't hate Glen Sather. If the Rangers had someone competent in charge in his place, they might actually be successful. Long live Sather's NYC reign.

1. Every player on the German national soccer team, because they're cheaters and German

2. Every player on the Portuguese national soccer team, because they're cheaters and dirty

3. Sean Avery

4. Floyd Landis (the most obvious cheater in Tour de France history)

5. Martina Hingis

6. Alex Rodriguez

8. Sidney Crosby (you're so good, but just stop crying already)

9. Rafael Nadal (for not letting Roger Federer win Roland Garros)

10. Grady Sizemore (because he's doing really sh!t for a 1st round pick in my fantasy baseball team)

When did I say anything about a payroll? He's a pompous jackass on a team that's sub-500, so I don't particularly like him. He's not on your list, he's not on your list.

10. Adam Graves

Graves? I mean, I know he was a Ranger, but why him?

I don't hate any baseball player, simply because I don't know who any of them are, same applies to the NBA.

The only person missing from all lists: Drew Rosenhaus. The guy is a used car salesmen, who cons not so bright NFL players and then watches them crash and burn for his own profit. If his talent isn't literally shooting themselves they are whining, pouting or getting arrested.

I am not sure why teams will even talk to him over his "players".
