100 most hated sports player: hewitt makes the cut as only tennis player

@ 66

Quote:
66. Lleyton Hewitt, Australia: It takes a lot for an entire country to dislike their native son on the tennis circuit. But Hewitt's history of racist and homophobic comments (he once accused a U.S. Open linesman of siding with James Blake against him on a series of foot fault calls, because both Blake and the linesman were black) have made him hated by rival players, tennis fans and, yes, many Aussies too

Who's Number 1 on this list?

This hatred is what got Hewitt to the top, so kudos to him!

Hewitt is the only one I have heard of on that list, don't take any interest in these muppet American sports. I actually quite like Hewitt and I'm not sure he is so disliked on the tennis circuit and in Australia.

Almost all American sports.

A worldly list would be mostly football (soccer) players probably.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

so American Football, Ice Hockey, NBA and Baseball make up all the sports scene

probably in football the most hated player nowadays would be Cristiano Ronaldo

That's right. Let's commend athletes for behaving so badly that people, even some of his countrymen, actually hate him.

I don't fare much better than you.

I have heard of Sosa, Yashin, Brisebois, Antropov, Lindros besides Hewitt, but would not recognize them if they stood in front of me.

Some football (American) player. Most of the list is made up of football, baseball, or basketball players, so I haven't heard of most of them.

I think it's funny that Chris Webber is on the list. I remember loathing him as a college basketball player many years ago, and laughing myself half to death when he tried to call a time out in the final seconds of the championship game when his team had no time outs left. Which pretty well made sure they lost the national championship. He'll never live that down, it's even in his wikipedia entry.
