Michael Vick remains among America’s most hated athletes

    The higher our heroes fly, the farther, and harder, they fall. Ask Eagles quarterback Michael Vick. He’s one of the 10 least liked athletes in the country tight now, according to a Nielsen/E-Poll survey. 

    He joins such luminaries as Tiger Woods, A-Rod, and Kobe Bryant. Take a look at the list and tell us if you agree with the selections. Anyone you’d add? Do you think any of them just got a bum rap?

    Proximity to scandal might weigh heavily on this list. Manti Te’o and Lance Armstrong are both at the top. Oprah Winfrey can only do so much.
