Your list of 5 most despised athletes.

Without extensive thought I'll go with.

  1. Tiger Woods. Great golfer but everything else about the guy is wretched.

  2. Lance Armstrong. Lowest cretin in sporting history. Sued those that accused him of PED use.

  3. Barry Bonds. Everyone knew that the bloated star was a drug user...they were having too much fun though to call him out.

  4. *Larry Bird was until the steal from the Pistons in the 1987 playoffs. What a talent that guy was.

  5. Tom Brady. Not intended to agitate Perkdog. I find the QB diva particularly irritating.

Note: OJ is certainly a worthy first choice on anyone's list. His on field performance though was far removed from his later criminal activity.

    None for me...life is far, far too short to despise anyone.

    However, your putting Brady in your "most despised list because of some "diva" nonsense is shallow at best. Including Larry Bird I find very odd.

    Your omission of those with noted dubious off-field activities clearly indicates you should have gone with the "extensive thought" comment.

    Actually, I find your post topic somewhat boorish and unecessary. Surely your hypothalamus can conjure up a more valued post.

    I can understand haters of the Patriots despising Tom Brady, really I do. Personally I love Tom Brady the New England Patriot and will defend him with everything I got as far as him being the best ever but that’s as far as I go, I wouldn’t pay for his auto or even care to actually meet him and talk to him or any athlete, these guys are not anything to me outside of the uniform. I despise Eli Manning -Beat the Pats twice, Colin Kaepernick for starting all the kneeling controversy, Manny Ramirez for quitting on the Sox, David Tyree for the stupidest and luckiest one play ever to ruin the Pats undefeated season and Arod for him being him.

    Barry Bonds was such a tool and a cheater. He's probably #1. I am not really a hater so can't think of 4 others.

    As expected, a very mature response from you.

    It may interest you to know that Michael Vick, quarterback of the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles, plead guilty in court to torturing and killing at least 8 pit bull dogs. He personally hung, or drowned these dogs. So, you ponder the sight of those poor defenseless animals twisting in the wind fighting for their last breath, or under water gasping their last.

    Interesting that you didn't choose this person to make your most despised athletes list. If I had a list, he'd be numero uno.

    I suggest you grow up and post things of value, not attempt to incite hatred.

    Wasn't a cheap shot at all, it was retaliation for the forearm that Brett threw at Nettles first. Brett slid in hard then, as he popped up, he forearmed/shoved Nettles so Nettles kicked him:

    Those who like to post with negative comments about other posters, or appear to thrive on negativity, should consult with "Dbtunr" and "baseball" as to the consequences of such actions. Oh, I just remembered, they've been banned.

    I can assure you, the Webmaster has a less than zero tolerance for such nonsense. Any poster can confirm this with the Webmaster, her name is Julie Curiel, www.jcuriel@collectors.com, or contact her via 800-325-1121.
