The new Nielsen/E-Poll survey of the most disliked athletes in America has the not-so-surprising name of Lance Armstrong at the top of the list, reports Forbes. More surprising is that Notre Dame star and soon-to-be-NFL'er Manti Te'o tied Armstrong with a measly 15% approval rating. Even if he was a hoax victim, Teo's fake girlfriend saga has taken a toll on his image.
- Worst three: After Armstrong and Te'o comes Tiger Woods, with a 19% appeal rating. It hasn't budged much since his scandal.
- Middle of pack: Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (21%), the Lakers' Metta World Peace (21%), Alex Rodriguez (22%), and Michael Vick (23%).
- Final three: NASCAR's Kurt Busch, the Lakers' Kobe Bryant, and Dallas QB Tony Romo tied with 27%.
