Thursday's Edge List: Top 10 Most Disliked Athletes
Number Ten -- Tony Romo
The Dallas Cowboys quarterback takes a lot of heat considering he's never harmed anyone or been in trouble off the field. But that's what happens when you're a quarterback, when you don't make it to the Super Bowl, you get blamed. His appeal rating, 27%.
Number Nine -- Kobe Bryant
The Lakers player is still feeling heat from a ten-year-old rape allegation that was never prosecuted. But people rarely forget that. His appeal rating, 27%.
Number Eight -- Kurt Busch
The NASCAR driver is hot tempered and arrogant, often fighting with teammates and reporters alike. His appeal rating, 27%.
Number Seven -- Michael Vick
The Philidelphia Eagles quarterback is slowly coming off of everyone's hate list, but it's hard to forget being so cruel to innocent animals. His appeal rating, 23%.
Number Six -- Alex Rodriguez
The New York Yankees player is a human drama hoarder. From his latest PED fiasco to his personal relationship drama, this guy doesn't have many fans. His rating, 22%.
Number Five -- Metta World Peace
The Los Angeles Lakers forward is seen as a bad boy, starting fights with players. He's been on good behavior lately, but old habits die hard. Plus, he changed his name to Metta World Peace, you're going to lose a couple friends that way. His appeal rating, 21%.
Number Four -- Jay Cutler
The Chicago Bears quarterback is often seen as standoffish with teammates and the public, whether you like him or not, the sight of him riding a stationary bike on the Bears' sideline after pulling himself out of a 2011 playoff game still makes us think he's a bit of a wimp. His appeal rating, 21%.
Number Three -- Tiger Woods
This golfer's image hasn't improved that much since his highly publicized infidelity problems a few years back, probably because he hasn't won much since then. His appeal rating 19%.
Number Nine -- Manti Te'o
The Notre Dame linebacker rose to fame through his online girlfriend hoax , which wasn't his idea, but most people figure he lied for the extent of the fake relationship for attention, not cool Te'o. His appeal rating when from 88% to 15% almost overnight.
Number One -- Lance Armstrong
The doping confession to Oprah didn't yield much sympathy for Armstrong, his years of lying and attacking those who tried to prove his guilt sorta makes us hate him. His appeal rating, 15%.
