Michael Vick Edges Tiger Woods as America's Most Disliked Athlete

Well, at least an Eagle has won something.

Forbes Magazine has released the results of poll that have found Michael Vick to be the most disliked professional athlete.

While Vick has moved on from his past legal troubles to regain his status as one the league’s premiere players and one Philadelphia’s most popular athletes, his public rehabilitation apparently hasn’t resinated with the rest of America.

Vick and Tiger Woods actually were tied on the list at 60 percent disliked, but the Eagles quarterback edged out golf’s most recognizable name because he received more “dislike a lot” votes.

Also making the list was Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, who earlier this season was among the NFL’s most liked players. Public perception of Suh, however, changed quickly after repeated cheap shots and the infamous stomping of Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith.

Other notable names include Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, Plaxico Burress, and former Eagle Terrell Owens. No surprises there.
