A year ago, after putting together an outstanding first season in the NFL, Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was considered one of the most popular athletes in the NFL. Now, however, after all of the talk about him being a dirty player and his Thanksgiving stomp, Suh has become one of the most disliked American athletes, according to a survey from Nielsen and E-Poll Market Research.
Specifically, Suh is considered the fourth-most disliked athlete in the United States, according to this survey. As noted in the write-up for the survey, fans have done a 180 in regards to Suh. In a survey about the most liked NFL players that apparently came out only four months ago, he actually came in first. Now, however, he has risen to the top of the most disliked list.
"He went from being so popular to being a pariah in one season," says Master. The good news for Suh is that he’s a young player who can shake off a mistake if he keeps it clean from now on.
The top three athletes on the most disliked list were Mike Vick, Tiger Woods and Plaxico Burress.
