The 10 Most Disliked Athletes in America


Lance Armstrong had two decades of professional racing and seven Tour de France championships to his credit before he became America’s most disliked athlete. That happened, of course, when he acknowledged that he cheated through much of the ride. For Manti Te’o, it took little more than a day, following the revelation of a fake girlfriend, to join Armstrong at the top of the list.


Lance Armstrong
Appeal: 15%
The doping confession to Oprah didn’t yield much sympathy. In a virtual tie with Manti Te'o at the top, but Armstrong's broader name recognition gives him the nod.

0x600 (1)

Manti Te'o
Linebacker, University of Notre Dame
Appeal: 15%
Apparently the online girlfriend hoax wasn’t his idea, but most people figure he embellished the extent of the relationship for personal attention. Te'o's appeal rating went from 88% to 15% almost overnight.

0x600 (2)

Alex Rodriguez
Third Baseman, New York Yankees
Appeal: 22%
Where to even start with A-Rod, the human drama that’s entering the 10th year of a Broadway run? That’s longer than 'Jersey Boys.' Depending on the outcome of his latest PED fiasco, Rodriguez could easily shoot higher.

0x600 (3)

Michael Vick
Quarterback, Philadelphia Eagles
Appeal: 23%
See Metta World Peace - reputations take a while to come back. At least Vick is moving steadily down the list from the top spot he used to occupy.

0x600 (4)

Kobe Bryant
Guard, Los Angeles Lakers
Appeal: 27%
Always polarizing, and still feeling residual heat from a 10-year-old rape allegation that was never prosecuted.

rest of the list at the Source

What athletes do you dislike ONTD? Kobe's on here, so I'm good lol

lol who is this "everybody" you speak of? Lakers fans because that's about it.
deadendqueen16 6th-Feb-2013 02:01 am (UTC)
Nope, pretty much everyone other than Lakers fans hate him.

Where is Ryan Lochte? Or America just likes to make fun of him?
slut_talk 6th-Feb-2013 01:32 am (UTC)
Ryan Lochte is so stupid and harmless I don't think a lot of people can actually hate him.
juteux 6th-Feb-2013 01:32 am (UTC)
AFAIK ryan hasn't raped anyone or committed a felony, so...
lucciolaa 6th-Feb-2013 01:37 am (UTC)
C'mon, if anyone hates him, it's definitely not on the same scale as some of these guys.
winniechili 6th-Feb-2013 01:38 am (UTC)
Nobody hates Ryan, he's just dumb and harmless.
superpchan 6th-Feb-2013 01:43 am (UTC)
I don't think anyone genuinely hates him. Maybe dislikes him, doesn't find him attractive, or thinks he's overexposed. Mind you, none of which equals "I hate him!". Otherwise, he's harmless until he's done something "problematic" (even if false), and that flaw/behavior/etc. will be mentioned in every one of his future posts.
brucelynn 6th-Feb-2013 01:47 am (UTC)
One person on here said he was gonna be the next Chris Brown lol

skeet_skeet 6th-Feb-2013 01:56 am (UTC)
He's harmless, he's like a big dumb hairless golden retriever.
chuk_is_dazzled 6th-Feb-2013 01:58 am (UTC)
no one hates lochte, i mean how could you? hes like a puppy
aprilbegins 6th-Feb-2013 01:26 pm (UTC)
being a douche no longer makes an athlete a shitty person in my head

it used to but we're at a point where off-field actions are so pervasive and terrible and there's enough news about it that I can't be that mad at someone for denying someone an autograph anymore. Therefore, you are free to go, Aaron Rodgers. Have a nice day in your insured life
jigglemypuff 6th-Feb-2013 01:30 am (UTC)
I hate that we can't post full list anymore.

And I don't feel strongly about any of these people.
aprilbegins 6th-Feb-2013 01:27 pm (UTC)
I hate that we can't post full list anymore.

I understand it for the sake of getting more people to the source but I don't think that's the reasoning, or else every post would be cut in half.

The subject line should just be changed to fit what's posted. In this case, top 5.

Why are people so mad at that football player for the fake girlfriend thing? Did he somehow use it to win or make money or something?
jigglemypuff 6th-Feb-2013 01:32 am (UTC)
People think he used it to try and get the Heisman but he failed, so....
katiekizay 6th-Feb-2013 01:32 am (UTC)
Yeah I'm confused too. It's a lame story...but he didn't rape anyone.
slut_talk 6th-Feb-2013 01:35 am (UTC)
Some people think he did it to help his career somehow
chimbleysweep 6th-Feb-2013 01:40 am (UTC)
I don't get it, either, but I've been on the internet for a long time. People faking shit for attention and personal gain doesn't surprise me.
skeet_skeet 6th-Feb-2013 01:57 am (UTC)
People say he used it to try and get the Heisman trophy.
megalixer 6th-Feb-2013 02:24 am (UTC)
ikr? I mean it's silly but nothing to get mad about.
r4wrdinosaur 6th-Feb-2013 02:28 am (UTC)
I just hate it because not only is it fucking stupid, it's also been a FUCKING MESS TO FOLLOW. I can never keep track of wtf is going on with that story, and I blame him.
sandstorm 6th-Feb-2013 04:23 am (UTC)
Beyond 'fake girlfriend' I have no idea what went down.
hazel_belle 6th-Feb-2013 01:31 am (UTC)
And where is Sean Avery? Hockey's resident Asshole although he recently tossed his skates into the Hudson?
mhfromnh 6th-Feb-2013 02:21 am (UTC)
Kip Brennan's a douche too. I was lucky enough to see a fan punch him once.
hazel_belle 6th-Feb-2013 02:37 am (UTC)
It is at the point right now that I wish we had kept Avery, just so he could fuck with people.

baglady25 6th-Feb-2013 03:20 am (UTC)
The fact that he threw his skates in the Hudson slays me.
palmsread 6th-Feb-2013 01:22 pm (UTC)
wait, what?

why did he do that?

Mike Tyson?

"What athletes do you dislike ONTD?"

any athlete arrested for DUI, physical or sexual assault. and there seem to be a lot of those
lucciolaa 6th-Feb-2013 01:38 am (UTC)
OT but your icon looks so much like my bf's ex that it throws me off every time I see it
queenbathory 6th-Feb-2013 01:41 am (UTC)
hahaha I wanna say your bf has good taste BUT I'm sure that must be awkward

The entire USA women's soccer team. They are all cheats! #TeamCanada #ChristineSinclairForPrimeMinister haha joking
Abby Wombach is the shit.
I'll also leave my hashtaging for twitter oop
tx5mym5 6th-Feb-2013 03:29 am (UTC)
Jason Kidd.

There I said it. When he was on the Mavs I got shit for talking about how I thought he was a rotten person. Domestic abuse charges and DUI, but he wasn't in trouble while he played in Dallas, so I kept my mouth shut.

He got traded back East and then crashed his car while drunk driving.


I never liked his ass and I can say it again without my friends getting huffy.

Love that Cutler is on this list. The hate for him always makes me happy.
jigglemypuff 6th-Feb-2013 01:33 am (UTC)
Why do people hate him? I don't anything about him except he dated that girl from the Hills.
katiexxpie 6th-Feb-2013 02:28 am (UTC)
they have a bb!
mydogfred 6th-Feb-2013 05:23 am (UTC)
standoffish, always talking shit and never backing up his words with playoff wins. notorious for being a dick to the media and many Bears fans don't like him because he's inconsistent.
raunchyb 6th-Feb-2013 03:28 am (UTC)
I didn't realize people hated him, and I can't believe he has less appeal than Michael Vick.

Pretty sure this list is current athletes.

Roethlisberger. Hands down.
maeir 6th-Feb-2013 01:58 am (UTC)
I'd pick him over Vick, for sure.
haverchuck_bill 6th-Feb-2013 02:22 am (UTC)
Yeah, I can't believe that Mick Vick has a high appeal number than Manti Teo. Fake girlfriend is more offensive that dog abuser?
