In light of the justified vitriol spewed at NFL commissioner Roger Goodell this week, I wondered who the most hated people are in sports at the moment. I asked my Twitter followers who they hated in sports besides Goodell, Alex Rodriguez and LeBron James because I figured they'd dominate the responses. Here's an unscientific count of the results. (Keep in mind, I have a heavy New York following, so that skewed things a little bit.)
Gary Bettman: 17
Lane Kiffin: 8
Jay Cutler: 7
*Others getting at least three votes: Skip Bayless, Chris Berman, Pete Carroll, Sidney Crosby, James Dolan, Brett Favre, Kevin Garnett, Dwight Howard, Terrell Owens, A.J. Pierzynski, Ben Roethlisberger, Michael Vick and Kevin Youkilis.
As is always the case on Twitter, some people weighed in with responses that made me laugh. Here are the 10 funniest answers I got to the question.
