Michael Vick “Most Disliked” Person in the NFL According to Forbes Poll
Remember all polls are subjective based on the people who reply to the poll.
If they took a poll of 1000 people and 700 have puppies, then what do you think is going to happen? Take these results with a grain a salt.
Forbes.com reported Monday that Vick is the NFL’s most disliked player, according to a poll by Nielsen and E-Poll Market Research. Forbes.com reports that 60 percent of those polled picked said they “dislike,” “dislike somewhat,” or “dislike a lot” the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback.
Second on the list was New York Jets receiver Plaxico Burress at 56 percent, who also has returned from a prison stay, followed by Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who was accused of sexual assault last year but wasn’t charged.
New England Patriots defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, who disappointed with the Washington Redskins after signing a $100 million contract before his trade to New England, came in at No. 4 at 46 percent and Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, who had his toughness questioned after leaving the last season’s NFC Championship Game early with an injury, finished fifth at 38 percent.
The rest of the top 10: Patriots receiver Chad Ochocinco (35 percent), Eagles backup QB Vince Young (32 percent), Oakland Raiders QB Carson Palmer (31 percent), Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and Carolina Panthers tight end Jeremy Shockey, who both were at 29 percent.
My theory is that it is better to be disliked than not talked about at all. So these gentlemen should feel honored.
