(Newser) – Michael Vick has been out of federal prison for almost a year, but the Eagles quarterback still has some image-polishing to do: For the second straight year, he tops the Forbes list of most disliked people in sports. New for 2010 are Ben Roethlisberger and how-the-mighty-have-fallen poster child Tiger Woods, the only non-football figure in the top five:

  1. Michael Vick: Disliked by 69% of 1,100 poll respondents, "Vick was a popular and dynamic player before the dog-fighting episode" and "still appears poised for a recovery with the public."

  1. Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis: 66%
  2. Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger: 57%
  3. Tiger Woods: 53%
  4. Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones: 53%
