Top 10 Most Hated Athletes in Sports
Top 10 Athletes You Love to Hate
Have you ever wondered why some athletes are hated so furiously? Why some people just can't stand the sight of, or hearing about, athletes that seem to always get attention for the wrong reasons? Some hatred is just there because the media creates some of it with the over-exposure of certain athletes.
One of those athletes recently is college football star, Johnny Manziel. The reigning Heisman-winner's name got so big in last season that he even earned himself a nickname after just one season as the starting quarterback of the Texas A&M Aggies. Earning the nickname 'Johnny Football' all but ensured a spot in the media spotlight for the remainder of his football career.
Like him or not, most people don't, Manziel is one of the best players in college football despite his antics off the field. He has been involved in an autograph signing scandal in which he was accused of accepting cash for his signature by signing hundreds of pictures. Prior to last season, he was involved in a bar fight and when he was arrested, he presented the officer with a fake ID, instead of his actual license.
People like Manziel usually get negative attention and sometimes they bring it upon themselves. Terrell Owens is one of those guys that used to be the center of attention because of his 'look at me' personality and his cocky attitude.
Kobe Bryant is hated by many in the NBA because he's also cocky and acts like he does no wrong. The way he handles the media also rubs some people the wrong way, but it's usually the most talented athletes that are also the most hated.
