Forbes magazine released a poll of the top 10 most disliked athletes in sports. Two athletes which have received copious amounts of news coverage in the past month top the list, Lance Armstrong and LB Manti Te’o. Armstrong has always been a controversial figure in the sporting world but his recent admission of doping, placed him at the top of the list with just a 15% appeal rating.
Coming in right behind him, also at 15% is Notre Dame’s LB Manti Te’o. Te’o was the victim of an online hoax, reportedly falling in love with a woman that never existed. Te’o's image suffered the biggest drop of any athlete in the top-10. His appeal rating plummeted from 88% to 15.
