Same thing I was thinking... I am a Kyle fan and have been to a few races... and let me tell you, that guy is ver polarizing with very few liking him... Kurt isn't liked either but people don't really care or say as much about Kurt.

I don't know how Tiger is a top that list.... In all honesty most times tiger is on tv, people are rooting for him... they want tiger to win and get back to his old self... Now people like A-Rod, James, Kyle, Vick and TO people dislike and love to watch them fail... they are the ones really disliked ones by the fans. I will also throw brady up there.

Plaxico is a little surprising to me to because the got shot himself, did the time, and well, no one really cares about him to even dislike him.

Just my opinion.

Here's the Top 10:

  1. Michael Vick
  2. Tiger Woods
  3. Plaxico Burress
  4. Ndamukong Suh
  5. Kris Humphries
  6. LeBron
  7. Kobe
  8. T.O.
  9. A-Rod
  10. Kurt Busch

Burress is way too high. Shouldn't even be on the list. Kurt Busch is a Class A prick who should be higher. The rest of the list looks about right. I'd put Tom Brady in there.

I don't know who Kris Humphries is and really don't care, but I am concerned that there is but one white guy on this list who doesn't run, jump, or throw and is considered an athlete.

From Merriam Webster:

"..a person who is trained in or good at sports, games, or exercises that require physical skill and strength."

So, I guess in that sense I have to consider Kurt Busch an athlete. But I'll never consider NASCAR a "sport."

Obviously you never hit turn 1 at Charlotte Motor Speedway at 165 MPH! Just coming out of the pits and hitting that banking (I can't imagine what Daytona feels like!) Your Jockey's will be so far up your rectum, that you will be spitting cotton! And if it's your first race, it will be the next day before your @$$ hole relaxes and you can actually take a dump!

Then on top of that, try wrestling a ton and a half car for 4 hours at speeds in excess of 165 MPH!

I would say that have to be in pretty good condition for that.

Lol at all the rednecks in this thread trying to justify why they watch that garbage by convincing themselves driving in a circle 500 times takes more than concentration and rehydration in the fitness department

I work out multiple times a week and do some minor crossfit training. I'm more of an athlete than Kurt busch.

I went off an aircraft carrier catapult in an F-14. Zero to 145 in about half a second- how's that? Full afterburner barrel rolls into a 2.5G vertical climb and a deliberate apex stall where you black out... pretty cool.

I'd say my 2 hours in the back seat doing that was as exciting as driving a car in a circle.

And I didn't say NASCAR drivers weren't athletes. Matter of fact, I said by definition they were athletes, but that doesn't make NASCAR a sport.

NASCAR isn't a sport, driving isn't an athletic skill. Go dynamite a pond, Jimbo.

Lol at some guy that thinks he can judge what a race car driver goes through because he had his Honda Accord up to 87 mph on I85 one day. Not saying race car drivers are "athletes" because they aren't, but they do carry a great deal of mental and physical stress while performing. You just don't see it cause they make it look easy. However, they are just as much or not more of an athlete than a golfer.

Lol at these rednecks in denial for picking out the NASCAR star over the has been golfer. I guess laughing at Woods on the list of "athletes" makes me a racist redneck?

I'm concerned that there is only one white athlete on this list period. That really does say who is controlling the mindset of your society when so many African-American athletes are encouraged to be hated while others committing the same or worst things get away with it.

I guess it's only when Tiger was exposed for cheating on his wife that the the golfing world fond cheating on your wife to be a real immoral act. When Greg Norman, Nick Faldo, and even Colin Montgomery were cheating on their wives with their nanny, best friend's wife and close friend it wasn't so immoral.

Kobe Bryant is on the list but not Ben Rothleisburger. Plaxico is on that list for shooting himself in the leg and going to jail in a city whose gun law is so strict that a woman from the south was jailed after she felt she was doing the right thing by turning over her gun before she went sightseeing at the Empire State Building.

And I wouldn't be surprised if some of those who are still hating on Mike Vick and what he did are sitting there and wanting the world to not judge Sandusky for what he is accused of doing.

Funny that everyone of those top nine athletes were found guilty as charged by our media but Sandusky gets to run around and give interviews professing his innocence and love of bathing with young boys not his own and no one is labeling him nor speculating over his guilt. He's allowed to be innocent until proven guilty by our law.

Actually, plenty of what goes in to how good a golfer you are relies on proper body technique and form contributing to both kinetic energy produced and accuracy

Nascar isn't as physically challenging
