    In sports, there are athletes that people love and adore, say Drew Brees or Kevin Durant. But then there are some athletes who had great careers going for them, did something wrong, and now everybody hates that person. 

    From 2009-2010, there have been at least 3 big name athletes who flipped over their career from the good to the bad. 

    Here is a list of the possibly 5 most hated athletes in the MLB,NHL,NFL and NBA and others.

    This year alone, Morgan has had 4 incidents of which he got yelled at and acted like a bum. 

    1. When he was trying to make a catch at the wall and he dropped the ball, he slammed his glove in anger while the ball was still in play.

    2. When he ran into the Cardinals catcher for no reason and was called out.

    3. When he ran into the Marlins catcher when he could have slid. 

    4. When he stole 2 bases in a game when his team was losing by 11. Then he charged Chris Voldstad when he threw a pitch behind him.

#3 Michael Vick

4 of 6

    Out of any athlete in the sports world, Michael Vick is my most hated athlete. Even though i have 2 more athletes ahead of him, people dont hate Vick as much as the next 2.

    The main thing that he did was dog fighting. He was killing living creatures for absolutely no reason.

    He also had a few other incidents but not major ones. 

#2 Ben Roethlisberger

5 of 6

    Ahhh Big Ben Roethlisberger.

    Whats more to say?


    What an idiot. Hes one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, he's won 2 super bowls, what a career he's had. And then he decided to go into a Georgia bar and decided to do something very inappropriate. 

    Thats the world these days. 

    And now he wants to get his suspension reduced from 6 games to 3. Yeah good luck with that.

#1 Tiger Woods

6 of 6

    Tiger Woods may or may not be hated in your eyes, but if he is, he has to be #1. What a life he had. A family, the best golfer in the world, possibly ever, and over $1 million. Then he decides to cheat on his wife. Yep thats the world these days.
