Forbes released a list of the ten most disliked athletes in America based on the most recent Nielsen surveys. To the surprise of no one, Lance Armstrong and Manti Te’o are tied for first place.
While Armstrong may have cleared his conscious by admitting to Oprah that he did, in fact, find hope with dope, he did himself no favors. All his previous self-righteous statements and ads dedicated to his holiness and clean system make him all the more hypocritical now. No one likes a liar, but people especially dislike liars who throw everyone else under the bus to conceal their own lies. On top of all of this, he is not paying back any of the bonus money he cheated to earn. What a stellar guy.
T1) Lance Armstrong 15% appeal
T1) Manti Te’o 15% appeal
3) Tiger Woods 19% appeal
T4) Jay Cutler 21% appeal
T4) Metta World Peace 21% appeal
6) Alex Rodriguez 22% appeal
7) Michael Vick 23% appeal
T8) Kurt Busch 27% appeal
T8) Kobe Bryant 27% appeal
T8) Tony Romo 27% appeal
First of all this study is fucking stupid. Its not most disliked, its least amount of appeal. There’s a big difference. Hate and not liking someone are two wildly different things. Forbes didn’t poll asking who people hate the most, they just ranked who was liked the most, and the people at the bottom lost.
Second. This is just the same song and dance that we have heard a million times. Jay Cutler is soft (Yet he gets sacked more than any other quarterback in the league). Jay Cutler is a bad teammate (Yet not one single teammate has ever come out and said this). Jay Cutler is a coach killer (That’s funny, because last I checked the only bad experience Cutler had with a coach was when McDaniels went to Denver and IMMEDIATELY tried to find a replacement for him, and how’d that work out for Josh again?)
Here’s the thing, I know Cutler is polarizing. People see a guy who doesn’t smile much and isn’t joking around, a guy that doesn’t give awesome soundbites and pretend to be BFF’s with the media and they just assume he’s an asshole. Fine. Whatever. I can’t stop people’s perception based on a few clips. But you know what Jay Cutler has never done? He’s never gotten a DUI, or been caught with drugs, or committed domestic assault, or killed another human being, or raped a chick (Kobe) . Those are the guys people should dislike, not a private person that doesn’t care how the public perceives him. Classic media. Ray Lewis allegedly killed TWO human beings. Murder. And because he plays buddy buddy with Sal Pal and Chris Berman everyone hypes him up and sucks his dick. Whereas Cutler has never done anything to make you think he’s a bad person but he doesn’t suck every media members off and they in turn hate him. Absolutely Laughable.
This story also came out today about Cutler and K-Cav getting engaged for the second time.
According to Cavallari, Cutler sent her ring to her in the mail as a re-proposal.
“It was so silly. I was in the airport, leaving Chicago,” she told E! News in an interview that will air in March. “We had just spent however many days together and we were texting and somehow it came up, like, ‘Oh, shall we get married?’ We’re like, ‘Yeah, OK.’ And then he sent my ring in the mail. So I actually had my ring sitting at home for a couple of weeks before I put it on.”
Boom. Engagement ring in the mail. Power move. Some guys do jumbo trons, some guys cry and go to the most expensive french restaurant in the city. Jay Cutler hooks it up with a little UPS overnight. That’s how you do Romance.
