How many athletes do you love? Many.
How many do you hate? Many.
But how many do you both love and hate, or have both loved and hated in your lifetime? Well, now, that is a trickier question.
It's different for everyone, but here is the list of the most widely liked and disliked athletes in sports.
Chicago Bears fans want to love Jay Cutler, and Chicago's recent NFC Championship Game visit and current 5-1 record give lots of reasons for love.
But Cutler's tough, terse personality has not endeared him to Chicago fans, who want to love him but have been left feeling something less than affection for their star quarterback.
The handsome Dallas Cowboys quarterback is loved by women for his looks and men for his gun-slinging success on the gridiron.
But Tony Romo's inability to get things done in crunch time and consistently bad play under pressure have earned him the hatred of many Cowboys fans.
Bryce Harper pleased fans, but remember when Cole Hamels beaned him with a fastball?
Clearly, not everyone was pleased with the brash rookie superstar's antics.
His swagger, desire to win, charisma and incredible natural ability have made Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton an NFL phenomenon.
But many choose not to forget his Auburn bribery scandal, which nearly tarnished the legacy of the Heisman Trophy.
Boston Red Sox fans wanted to love Josh Beckett after he won them the 2007 World Series.
But Beckett's mercurial personality and declining performance got in the way, and now he is in California.
What, Quidditch doesn't count as a sport?!
Jon Lester was the new ace in Boston, a leader for the next era of Boston Red Sox baseball.
Then, he got caught in the 2011 chicken wing scandal and a bit too close to Josh Beckett.
Now, he has lots of ground to make up with Boston fans.
All the love may be gone now.
Alex Rodriguez can thank steroids and his bench-worthy playoff performances.
Funnily enough, Chicago White Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski is deeply hated at all of his former stops but loved on the South Side.
Alfonso Soriano was a beloved Chicago Cubs addition in 2007-2008, when he played All-Star ball and helped the Cubs become one of baseball's best teams.
But those days are long gone, and the last five years of his contract have been very painful for Chicago.
Britain's best soccer player, UK fans want desperately to love Wayne Rooney.
Yet, they are sometimes turned off by his rough-and-tumble style of play and pugnacious attitude.
Admired for his stout defense and loved in New England, Kevin Garnett has alienated most of the remaining NBA universe.
Somewhere in an avalanche of elbows and dirty plays, the NBA's most liked player in Minnesota became one of its most polarizing in Boston.
The "Dwightmare" may be over, but what will happen to Dwight Howard's popularity now that he is a Los Angeles Laker and ensconced in basketball's temple to success?
Just kidding. There isn't any love here.
Smooth-shooting small forward Carmelo Anthony came to the New York Knicks to become the king of Madison Square Garden.
Yet, in two seasons, no one here in New York has seen a crowning.
The big-hitting Baltimore Ravens linebacker is a fan favorite in the Chesapeake region.
But many fans elsewhere detest Ray Lewis, and many haven't forgotten his narrow escapes from legal troubles earlier in his career.
Cristiano Ronaldo, the savior of Portuguese soccer, became the big bad wolf of Real Madrid.
Still, he'll always have those model looks.
Worshiped in New England, Tom Brady is admired as one of the best quarterbacks of the 21st century.
But his model looks, arrogant attitude, constant winning and petulance toward officials have all earned him many fan-emies around the NFL.
King in South Beach. Goat in Cleveland.
Everywhere else, the opinion of LeBron James is decidedly mixed.
Love or hate him, you've probably changed your opinion more than once since 2003.
Floyd "Money" Mayweather is the most controversial figure in his sport.
Loved by his fans and detested by his detractors, there is only one thing guaranteed with Floyd: pay-per-view buys.
