Despite the struggles the Eagles have endured so far this season, Michael Vick has more or less completed his retransformation from a felon back into an elite football player over the course of the last year. So you'd think that all of the NFL fans out there would have forgiven him for his past transgressions by now and moved on. But, as it turns out, MV7 is no more beloved right now than he was when he first came back into the NFL after serving time in prison on federal dogfighting charges. In fact, it's a little surprising to hear, but according to a survey from Nielsen and E-Poll Market Research, Vick is still the most hated man in the NFL. The poll shows that 60 percent of respondents chose either "dislike," "dislike somewhat," or "dislike a lot" in reference to Vick.
Damn, folks. What happened to giving a guy a second chance? Then again, Plaxico Burress and Ben Roethlisberger ranked No. 2 and No. 3 respectively (or, is it dis-respectively?) behind Vick. So it's clear that people out there aren't going to let those three off the hook for their legal woes anytime soon. The hate is too strong!
