MICHAEL VICK IS OFFICIALLY THE MOST DISLIKED PLAYER IN THE NFL – AND ELSEWHERE
If footballer Michael Vick, 31, thought it would be easy to get back in the public’s good graces after he served time for illegal dog fighting, he underestimated the memories of animal lovers. We haven’t forgotten those scarred and tortured dogs. Happily, Vick has been voted Most Disliked player in the NFL by sports fans. 60% of all NFL fans polled by Nielsen dislike Vick. To be exact – 70% of the women and 50% of the men named him least liked player. Public opinion has made Vick less likely to land any important endorsement deals – even Nike doesn’t use him as a pitchman. And that’s the way it should be.
