NBA 73 43 Most disliked professional athletes 30651034 Athletes we love to hate Athletes+we+love+to+hate NBA

Remember when Brett Favre retired, then didn't? Or signed a contract with the Minnesota Vikings, irking fans of his former Green Bay Packers? Or the alleged racy texts he sent to reporter Jenn Sterger? Enough time has passed that Favre is no longer one of the most hated professional athletes. Here are the athletes who did make Forbes' list.

NBA 73 43 Most disliked professional athletes 30644002 Michael Vick Michael+Vick NBA

Michael Vick was released from jail in 2009 and has played three seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles since then. But fans still hold him accountable for the dog fighting ring that landed him in prison for animal cruelty, naming him America's most disliked athlete in the survey released by Forbes.

NBA 73 43 Most disliked professional athletes 30644004 Tiger Woods Tiger+Woods NBA

Not surprising to see that Tiger Woods is still near the top of this list. His game hasn’t recovered since his scandal-fueled divorce. Time hasn’t healed any wounds as far as the public goes … Woods continues to be one of the most disliked professional athletes.

NBA 73 43 Most disliked professional athletes 30644005 Plaxico Burress Plaxico+Burress NBA

Plaxico Burress has gained the most notoriety for serving time following the incident in 2008 in which Burress shot himself in the leg with a pistol he brought inside a New York City nightclub. Despite the fact that Burress has returned to the NFL, there isn't much good will floating Plaxico's way.

NBA 73 43 Most disliked professional athletes 30644003 Ndamukong Suh Ndamukong+Suh NBA

Ndamukong Suh drew fans’ ire this past season when he stomped on the arm of Packers' player Evan Dietrich-Smith. What made it worse was Suh's feeble attempt to explain his actions afterward. The public still seems to be outraged about Suh’s playing personality which explains his appearance at No. 4 on this list.

NBA 73 43 Most disliked professional athletes 30644000 Kris Humphries Kris+Humphries NBA

What a difference a year has made for Kris Humphries. Within the last year he met and married Kim Kardashian only to have Kardashian file for divorce after just 72 days. All of the public backlash has soiled Humphries’ image and earned him a prime spot on this year's list of most disliked athletes.

Jayne Kamin-Oncea - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2012/02/08/020812-Most-Hated-Pro-Athletes-G5_20120208180218819_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2012/02/08/020812-Most-Hated-Pro-Athletes-G5_20120208180218819_107_80.JPG
NBA 73 43 Most disliked professional athletes 30644001 LeBron James LeBron+James NBA

“The Decision” and the perceived arrogance behind it instantly made James one of the most disliked people in sports. People love to hate and it doesn’t look like the public will stop hating LeBron anytime soon.

Steve Mitchell - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2012/02/08/020812-Most-Hated-Pro-Athletes-G6_20120208180218820_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2012/02/08/020812-Most-Hated-Pro-Athletes-G6_20120208180218820_107_80.JPG
NBA 73 43 Most disliked professional athletes 30645976 Kobe Bryant Kobe+Bryant NBA

Kobe Bryant is famous for eliciting vitriol from his critics. Nobody is indifferent to Kobe. Some people love him and some people hate him. It isn't a total surprise that Kobe makes this list.

Gary A. Vasquez - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2012/02/08/020812-Most-Hated-Pro-Athletes-G7_20120208180233826_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2012/02/08/020812-Most-Hated-Pro-Athletes-G7_20120208180233826_107_80.JPG
NBA 73 43 Most disliked professional athletes 30644006 Terrell Owens Terrell+Owens NBA

Good ol' T.O. Terrell Owens has relished the spotlight; actually, he has relished the opportunity to speak his mind and express himself in the spotlight. That quality has not exactly endeared him to the public. Although Owens didn’t play in the NFL this year, residual ill will seems to have landed him among the most disliked athletes this year.

Mark Zerof - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2012/02/08/020812-Most-Hated-Pro-Athletes-G8_20120208180233827_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2012/02/08/020812-Most-Hated-Pro-Athletes-G8_20120208180233827_107_80.JPG
NBA 73 43 Most disliked professional athletes 30644007 Alex Rodriguez Alex+Rodriguez NBA

Rodriguez has taken significant hits to his image and popularity. He admitted to using steroids and went through a high-profile divorce. He hasn’t done much recently to garner negative attention but old habits die hard. That could explain A-Rod’s appearance in this Top 10.

NBA 73 43 Most disliked professional athletes 30645975 Kurt Busch Kurt+Busch NBA

Kurt Busch blistered his own team on radio early in 2011, then closed the season with a race in which he first was caught on the in-car camera offering an inappropriate gesture to a Secret Service detail protecting First lady Michelle Obama, then offered an obscenity-enhanced exchange with a television reporter caught on a fan camera and going viral on YouTube. Kurt starts off the countdown of the 10 most disliked professional athletes according to a survey released by Forbes.
