Chicago Sun-Times
A hearty stew of offbeat sports and pop culture.

michael-vick-most-hated-person-in-sports.jpgWhen we in the media are feeling particularly lazy, we simply forgo all the formal trappings of complete sentences and throw lists at you. It's quick, it's easy and it makes us feel like we're doing math -- something most writers aren't so hot at.

The people over at Forbes, perhaps feeling particularly spiteful today, give us a list of the 10 most hated personalities in sports.

As you might guess, Michael Vick is No. 1. Manny Ramirez, who earlier today made news for allegedly being on that 2003 steroids list, wins the not-coveted prize of second-most hated player in sports.

Here's the complete rundown:

1. Michael Vick
2. Manny Ramirez
3. Alex Rodriguez
4. Terrell Owens
5. Kobe Bryant
6. Allen Iverson
7. Isiah Thomas
8. Stephon Marbury
9. Nick Saban
10. John McEnroe

Any glaring omissions, haters?

How about the continually retiring/unretiring Brett Favre?

Sorry but the list is flawed.

1. Rae Carruth
2. O.J. Simpson
3. Lawerence Philps.
4. Mike Tyson
5.

Sorry but killing people, running over kids, and raping women is just a little more of a problem.

Then Weed, roids, Egos, and dogs (sorry peta)

For the record I have dogs but cock-fighting, dog fighting, hunting, are legally in some places, does not make it right just like Thailand aka Tailand is not correct but in context to the list this moves Mike Vick down from the #1 spot.

Dog fighting is widely practiced in much of Latin America, especially in Argentina, Peru and many parts of Brazil.

Russia, dog fighting is widely practiced.

Dog fighting is reportedly wide-spread in South Africa, particularly in the Western Cape region of Stellenbosch.

Dog fighting is illegal in all North American countries.

I'm just saying!
