A lot of these guys don’t belong on a list of most hated players. 

On that list, the only guys I dislike are Brady,  Hill, Ben Roethlisberger, and Vick.

I would add Ray Rice as the person I dislike the most. I can’t think of many players I hate though. Maybe add Aaron Hernandez and Rae Carruth in there. 

That’s a lot of hate to come up with 40 players you hate but only know from TV.


Looks like this was from a SportingNews article back in 2018.

Jim Nantz.

His constant barrage of Tom Brady knob-polishing commentary nauseated me to the point that I no longer watch New England CBS games with sound.   Only on mute. 

Unless, of course, they are playing the Jets.  Then I have to listen to Nantz praise his hero, Brady, and it reminds me why I turn the sound off for all of their other games.

I'll never forget how pleasing it was to hear the disappointment in his voice when Shonn Greene took a nap on the ball in the endzone of the 2010 AFC Divisional game in Foxboro.  "That's disgusting," he said.

No, Jim... you forcing your obvious Tom Brady man crush on the audience is what's disgusting.

Tim Tebow?  Ricky Williams?  Ridiculous choices if you ask me.  There are many choices I don’t hate on your list. 

Where’s Rae Carruth btw?   And Ray Rice?  

And Lawrence Phillips although I guess he barely made it to the NFL...did he ever even play?

I always thought Joe Theismann was a prick. He caught a break(pun intended) publicity wise when LT jacked him up, but I never liked him.


Never liked Keith Olbermann since his ESPN days. He always seemed to talk down to the people he was trying to reach.



and of course Collinsworth:
