Just got in to the office before baseball practice - it's 5:40am - and came across an article on Yahoo!. Before I clicked the link, I knew who was going to be at the very top - Oakland Raiders' own Al Davis.
If you want to read the article, go ahead, it'll show you why a once proud franchise struggles with consistency.
If you don't, here's the list of the least-liked figured in sports:
1. Al Davis
2. Michael Vick
3. Jerry Jones
4. Tiger Woods
5. Manny Ramirez
6. Terrell Owens
7. Albert Haynesworth
8. Mark McGwire
9. Bobby Knight (strongly disagree)
10. Randy Moss
Six of the top ten least-liked sports figured are from the NFL - you think there's much of an image problem?
Tiger Woods still has work to do to get his image back.
Manny is Manny, he does it for himself.
McGwire is a pock-faced liar.
Bobby Knight doesn't even deserve to be on this list. The guy was a winner wherever he was and is a great motivator and a great coach. Hell, he is a pretty good analyst too - it's nice hearing a game called from a coaches perspective.
Time for baseball.
