"It's nothing personal."

That's usually the reply most people give when you ask why they don't like a certain athlete. Be it because they're a fan of an opposing team or he did their team in when they were in college, plenty of rookies come into the league with plenty of people who want to see them fail.

And as much as they say it isn't personal, it usually is.

Myself, I've always been able to separate my Saturday's from my Sunday's, so the college thing has never been a problem for me. It's a clean slate once you enter the NFL in my book.

About the only time I can remember ever just wishing a guy to fail at the next level was if either he was drafted by a team within my division, or he had a nasty holdout situation or demanded a trade because he refused to play for the team that drafted him.

There has been no such situation this year, so I have no one on this list whom I'd like to see fail, truthfully. But from what I've gathered talking to others around the league, there are plenty of fans who feel differently. Some reasons make sense, and some are just for the silliest reasons I've ever heard.

And I'm going to share some of the humorous answers that have come in defense of their hatred.

Here are 10 guys certain fans around the league seem to be wanting to see go down in flames their rookie seasons in the NFL.
