The folks from the Hollywood Reporter sent me the results of a poll that they had conducted. . .not sure what the basis was or how many people they polled or anything like that. . .but those results say that Minnesota Vikings' quarterback Brett Favre was voted as the most hated player in the NFL for 2010.

The results of the poll, if nothing else, show exactly how deeply into their rectal cavities most casual sports fans have jammed their heads. Why do I say that? Well, here are the top five in the poll, in order.

-Vikings quarterback Brett Favre
-Eagles quarterback Michael Vick
-Patriots quarterback Tom Brady
-Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger
-Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo

So, apparently, (allegedly) sending pictures of your junk to a sideline reporter (who may or may not have reciprocated or given any indication she wanted such things to stop) makes you more worthy of hatred than murdering dogs in cold blood. Also, being a good looking guy that happens to be a pretty good football player with a supermodel wife (Brady) means that you should be more hated than a guy who forcibly had sexual relations with an underage drunk girl in the bathroom of a dive bar while some of your friends stood guard at the door.

As far as Romo? Heck, I had totally forgotten about him. Seriously, what did he do to garner so much hatred other than play quarterback for the Cowboys and date smokin' hot country music stars? More importantly, how the heck is Jay Cutler not in this poll somewhere? Is there anyone outside of Chicago that likes that guy?

Who says America's priorities aren't completely out of order, huh?

Seriously, whoever was questioned for this poll needs to get a serious grip on reality.
