Tom Brady. Whether it’s justified or not, a ton of people cannot stand him. There is obviously a ton of hate directed towards the Patriots because they have not shown to be a very ethical organization. Others hate the Brady and the Patriots because they are successful every single year. I’d get sick of it if the same person beat me year after year! The last bit of people dislike Brady because they don’t believe he is that great. He is getting a ton of success from being in a great system. It’s the same system that allowed Matt Cassel to lead the team to a 11-5 record. (2)TomBrady2

The easy answer for most hated player in football is anyone in a Patriots jersey, but I’ll keep it simple and say Tom Brady. The reasons are simple. He complains to refs when he gets breathed on; and even worse, the refs acquiesce and throw flags in his favor. He complains to refs even when calls go his way, and of course, the Pats’  shady history of bending the rules. Easy to hate someone like that. (3)

Tie between Tom Brady and Cam Newton. Brady: People hate a winner, and that’s what Brady his. Six Super Bowl appearances, four rings, 10 AFC championship appearances, and this year will be his fifth straight time reaching the conference round. Tom Brady alone has played in more playoff games than 27 other NFL teams… let that sink in. Add his numerous alleged cheating scandals and it is easy to see why he is so hated. (5)

Newton: The hate for Newton isn’t as old as Brady, but a 15-1 record will bring out the anger in people. Not to mention that Cam is one of the most cocky, vibrant, enthusiastic players on the field. People don’t like his dancing, celebrations, and “disrespectful” attitude towards the game. I say he’s just having fun. Newton said it best; if you don’t want him to dance, don’t let him score. (5)

Manziel-MoneyI think after all of his shenanigans this season, Johnny Manziel gets my vote for the most hated player in Football.  This kid still cannot get out of trouble and you can see the frustration from the Cleveland Browns and everybody else in the league.  I guess rehab didn’t work out the greatest for Johnny because he is still partying and not slowing down.
