GQ asked pro athletes who are the 10 most hated among them and who do you think came in at number one? You guessed it, Terrell Owens.
1. Terrell Owens
Owens after beating the New York Giants, November 2004.
Behavior detrimental to the team
Bonus points for:
Contract-negotiating high jinks, telling Eagles coach Andy Reid to
“shut up,” telling offensive coordinator Brad Childress not to speak to
him unless spoken to, falsely outing 49ers quarterback Jeff Garcia,
suggesting Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was responsible for their
2005 Super Bowl loss, suggesting the Eagles would win more if Brett
Favre was their quarterback, employing Drew Rosenhaus as an agent,
fighting with ex-teammate and team ombudsman Hugh Douglas, asking if
anyone else in the locker room “wants a piece of me”… Oh, fuck it.
Oh T.O., we will always love your ego maniacal ways and will miss your end zone celebrations dearly. Also cracking the top 5 were some athletes with Philly connections, Kobe Bryant and Curt Schilling. I used to be a Schilling fan, but after turning on the Red Sox and listening to too much of Shil's media whoring, I can agree with him making the list. Kobe is Fredo to me after claiming no Philly connections back in 2001.
