Forbes conducted a survey to see who the most hated player in the NFL is and at the top of the list was Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick. Vick has been at or near the top of the list for a while due to his dog fighting incident. Number 2 on the list is the San Diego Chargers rookie LB Manti T’eo.
Here is the notes out of Forbes:
San Diego Chargers
Pct. Dislike: 48%
Not enough playing time as a rookie yet to erase memories of the bizarre fake girlfriend episode at Notre Dame last year.
That is one hell of a surprise. How in the world is Manti Te’o the 2nd most hated player in the NFL over players that have done all kinds of stupid things. Why isn’t Aaron Hernandez on this list?
Manti was catfished in front of America. Someone pulled a prank on him and now people hate him because of it? How does that make any sense in the world?
Manti Te’o is getting a bad break, but he has everyone’s eyes looking at him and his every move on the field and off of the field. Don’t know what he can do to get out of that public eye. All he can do is play some good football and get people to forget about that dumb mess.
