Pretty simple. There are some guys that everyone hates that you find entertaining/cool/awesome etc... List them.

A large majority of people HATE him with a burning passion because of what he did, but I enjoy him as a football player but not as a person.

PS- I seriously dislike TO and Tom Brady.

Absolutely, I'm serious. Controversy gets ratings, and the NHL's in a dire need for ratings. I actually think Avery's mentality is great. I was just discussing this on the radio show that I intern for. They should have let Avery play the night he called Cuthbert "sloppy seconds" and had cameras following him. The NHL's in no position to turn down potential ratings.

Owens, well, I love his playing style, and I thought that the Eagles should have paid him.

I live in the Philadelphia area and everyone hates Scott Rolen around here because he wanted out of Philly and called it a dirty city. I loved the guy. Favorite player, ever. His glove was amazing and he had a good bat to go along with it. Something about the way he played the game.

Rafael Nadal. A lot of Federer fans around these days. Not a lot of people like Nadal.

http://www.smh.com.au/ffximage/2008/05/08/rafael_nadal_narrowweb__300x374,0.jpg

Brett Favre. Don't even get me started; but people shouldn't hate him aside from the media attention.

IDK, he hasn't shown anything on the court, I'm kinda glad that he is being forced out of the league. How dumb can a person be, coming out and stating "I occasionally smoke weed". Granted there are a lot of NBA players that do, but don't come out and state it to the media even more so when you are looking for a job.

I also second anyone that says Vick and T.O.

the thing is, when he plays, he produces. and he has wrecked teams.
the real issue with him is that he says whatever comes to his mind. he has no calculation or tact. he is the anti kobe.
which is why i really like him.

In my opinion, that didn't warrant a suspension at all. I didn't mind that, though it was kind of funny actually but I hate the way he plays. With that said, when he's on the ice you know my eyes are glued to the screen.

Maybe TO, I suppose, but at most I would say I like him well enough.

But it's the offseason, I could be forgetting stuff. Still, he's evolved into a much better teammate than he's given credit for.

Btw he is the master of the TD celebration, it was the wannabes that came after him who did the ridiculous **** than ruined everything. Steve Smith sitting on the ground and pretending he's in a row boat, stupid ass stuff. Nevermind dumbasses like Joe Horn.

Everything TO did was great though.

And this just might be probably my favorite TD celebration of all time, finally found video of it:

He might have deserved to go to jail but IMO everything he does outside of the NFL makes up for that. He is one of the most humble guys and he is not selfish with anything. He helps out a lot of young guys in the NFL through their careers. I would just like to hear your thoughts.

Manny, I really liked him in Boston just because he seemed like he was having a ton of fun out there and then he was traded to LA so I liked him even more and then about a month ago I went to a Dodgers game, 7th inning Manny Pinch hits for a grandslam off the first pitch on his bobble head night, it was amazing the stadium went WILD. Manny is now my favorite baseball player BY a wide margin.

So in other words your post was irrelevant since you refuse to come up with a legit reason for hating him.

I don't understand why instead of typing this post you didn't just explain why? I just think there is no reason to hate someone for making a mistake and trying to better themselves afterwards. It's not like he is a thug and is constently in trouble. I can see you hating Adam(Pacman)Jones but to hate someone that has such a positive impact on football and probably everyone he meets is crazy. I can definetily understand why you DISAGREE with what he did but I am confused with why you hate him after years of being a great guy.

I hope you are consistent and hate Adam Jones, Leonard Little, Stallworth etc.

Witnesses changed the testimony they gave to investigators when they were put on the stand during trial. Ray also reached a settlement with the victim's family I believe as well. I can read between the lines.

OJ was also acquitted of murder, doesn't mean he was innocent. Again I don't see how my not liking him has anything to do with you. I choose to not like Lewis because I think he's full of **** and should be in prison. It's really not that hard to understand.

He paid the family because he was in the wrong and settled what he was being accused of (accessory after the fact). Your right you not liking him doesn't have anything to do with me but this is a forums and if you expect to post something with out people questioning what you say you are an idiot.
