Top 10 Most Hated Players in NFL 2015

In the NFL there are players that the fans feel they can associate with and those that alienate themselves from even the most loyal of football fans. Where guys like Peyton Manning are consistently voted the most likeable players in the league year after year, Adrian Peterson and company get the short end of the stick—usually for their off-the-field behavior. Obviously loyal fans of a team usually love their players, but the rest of the league hates these guys. Let’s take a look at the 10 most hated players in the NFL for 2015:

Ben Roethlisberger most hated nfl players 2015

Ben Roethlisberger—Pittsburgh Steelers: Roethlisberger used to be a lot higher on this list, but he has managed to stay out of trouble recently. However, three sexual assault allegations doesn’t go over well with fans, especially female fans.

dez bryant most hated nlf players 2015

Dez Bryant—Dallas Cowboys: Bryant has always had immaturity and attitude issues on the field. If there’s a call he doesn’t agree with, Bryant is the first to run up to the refs and complain. He’s always crying on the bench. Oh yeah, and there was the whole thing with him assaulting his own mom…

richard sherman most hated players nfl 2015

Richard Sherman—Seattle Seahawks: Seahawks fans love this man, but that’s about it. Sherman has a big mouth and no self-control on the field when it comes to running it. Sure, he can back it up with his play; but no one cares if you think you’re the best thing that’s ever happened to football.

jay cutler most hated nfl players 2015

Jay Cutler—Chicago Bears: Cutler looks like he doesn’t care about the game of football, he is completely inconsistent, and as if that weren’t bad enough he is one of the highest paid players in the NFL. Bears fans and football fans in general agree that Cutler sucks.

ndamukong suh most hated nfl players 2015

Ndamukong Suh—Detroit Lions: Suh has always had a rap as a dirty player. Suh is a Roger Goodell favorite as far as fining goes, and he is often criticized for being “too rough and aggressive” for football. Personally, I think Suh is second only to J.J. Watt as far as defensive linemen go; but he remains on this list season after season.

johnny manziel most hated nfl players 2015

Johnny Manziel—Cleveland Browns: Manziel has made a lot of enemies by his wild activities off the field. Manziel does what normal early-20 year olds do but on an extreme level. Hanging out with Drake, missing team practices because he’s hungover, and posting pictures of it all over the internet make Manziel look immature and not ready to lead a team.

tom brady most hated nfl players outside new england patriots 2015

Tom Brady—New England Patriots: This one deserves a little extra explanation: Unless you’re a New England Patriots fan, you hate this man. Brady is an arrogant, overrated, super-model-marrying, cheater. On top of that, his personal life and dealings with women before Gisele Bundchen have alienated many female fans. Male fans hate him because they want to be him and because Brady is not the type of guy that you could drink a beer and watch a game with (he looks more like a fancy aged wine kind of guy). Whether it’s envy or flat-out hatred, Brady is one of the most disliked players in the league year after year.

Michael Vick still mots hated nfl players 2015 dog love

Michael Vick—New York Jets: Society and the NFL gave him a second chance, but apparently killing dogs doesn’t bode well with the majority of football fans (surprise, surprise).

ray rice most hated nfl players 2015

Ray Rice—Free Agent (Baltimore Ravens): Here’s another shocker. If it weren’t for Peterson doing basically the same thing to a child instead of his wife, Rice would be number one on this list. The elevator footage is still fresh in the minds of many, and if Rice is ever picked up by another NFL team he better get used to being booed by even the home fans.

adrian peterson most hated nfl players 2015

Adrian Peterson—Minnesota Vikings: Well, well, well. We’re down to the 2012 NFL MVP. Surprisingly, beating your own child to the point where there are bruises left behind don’t sit well with anyone. What Peterson did is just wrong, and it will be interesting to see if fans accept the best running back in the league back come the 2015 seasons.
