10 Athletes Who Get Unjustified Hate

Everything’s a lot more fun with a great villain.

How much would we care about Batman if the Joker wasn’t around? Who would read the Superman comics if there was no threat of Lex Luthor getting in the way? What would SpongeBob SquarePants be without Plankton?

The same goes for sports—it’s the villain that makes things worth watching. It’s the villain that creates the drama. It’s the villain that turns the game into a story.

And yet sometimes, it’s important to take a step back and examine who it is we’ve chosen to be the villains.

Do we sports fans hate the right people?

Do all of the athletes on whom we focus most of our scorn and derision actually deserve it?

Far too often, our hatred toward athletes has really no justification at all.

    Thought college basketball player Aaron Craft would be on the list. Like Tebow, a lot of hate is directed his way due to his Christian beliefs.

      Andrea: Attributes such as courage of your beliefs/actions seem to be in short supply these days and why T2 is quite rare which is why he is all the more to be admired in my book. God bless TEBOW!!!
