Vick tops lists of most-hated athletes
For the second year in a row, Michael Vick has been rated the most hated man in sports, according to an annual Forbes magazine poll.
The NFL quarterback, who completed his sentence on dogfighting charges last year, was disliked– or worse — by 69 percent of respondents.
Vick, now with the Philadelphia Eagles, was one of five NFL figures on the 10 most-hated list.
Al Davis, owner of the Oakland Raiders, took second place on the list with a 66 percent disapproval rating. Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Rothlisberger, who was embroiled in a sexual assault investigation this spring, ranked third with a 57 percent rating.
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones tied for fourth with Tiger Woods.
