In the days of Twitter, blogs and the 24-hour news cycle, athletes are constantly pigeonholed into easily digestible personas. You have the good guys (read: Drew Brees), the goofballs (read: Ryan Lochte) and, of course, the villains.
In sports, villains are guys who endure constant vitriol from fans and seem to enjoy the attention. They're players whom, for a variety of reasons, are easy to root against.
