The 9 MOST HATED Athletes


Mirror, mirror on the wall, who get’s hated on most of all?

Get ready, because this is OUR look at the most hated athletes around. Just so we’re clear, ‘hate’ isn’t a word being thrown around loosely here. In fact, some of these guys are SO hated that their un-popularity is rivaled by the likes of Osama, Castro and Saddam and Bush. CRAZY!

Hell, even I hate some of the guys on this list. Let’s face it though, they have our attention and no matter what, they must be good at what they do for us to even give them the time of day.

Just remember one thing before you dive into this list. Every one of these guys is among the BEST at what they do, they’re winners and are elite players in their respective sports.

In any case, it’s time to get on with it. Here they are, the most hated and debated (in no particular order):

Lebron James

Kobe Bryant

Tom Brady

Alex Rodriguez

Ben Roethlisberger

Mike Vick

Tiger Woods

Brett Favre

Kevin Garnett

  1. Rah, indeed these folks are at the top of my list of hated/debated. A lot of it is pure jealousy because they’ve beaten down people’s favorite athletes and/or teams over the years. Sports fans have LONG memories and if one of these guys took down one of your favs you have nothing but contempt for them. I wonder about Tiger though…he has been trying to regain his touch for awhile now without great success and perhaps the tide is turning from hatred…to pity. We shall see. If he does make it all the way back, it will be very interesting to see how the public sentiment sways then.

    I definitely agree re: Tiger. It remains to be seen. Of course, winning can have the inverse effect and get people to come around and start loving you again, much like it did for Kobe in helping him rebuild his image.
    It was really tough for me to add certain athletes to this list, mainly because I’m a HUGE HUGE HUGE Kobe fan and I totally sympathize with Favre and Vick.
    I think a key word here is ‘sentiment’. What types of things are people saying about Kobe, Vick, Tiger, LeBron etc.. For a while there, and I think it still goes on right now, everything said about LeBron was negative. So, the sentiment surrounding LeBron was overall bad. As for Kobe, it’s mostly people being upset that he beat their team. Conversely, it Kobe was in LeBrons shoes just a few years ago.. go figure.
