Mike Matusow makes another "most hated" list

So it looks like Rob Hurtt from the Sporting News.com doesn't like Mike Matusow either. I just stumbled across one of his articles titled "Punks who deserve the hate they get". I'm not sure if that's proper english or not but I do find it interesting that he singles out Mike in article otherwise filled with sports superstars such as Terrell Owens and Barry Bonds.

Come on Rob, is it really that easy to hate Matusow? Is he really that bad?

Rob goes on about several sports figures that he felt should have made the list and even tosses a few more names in the mix as he concludes:

Although I would have loved to bend the rules to get Steve Spurrier on this list, he's a coach and not an athlete. I despise Mike "The Mouth" Matusow, but unlike ESPN, I don't consider poker a sport. Sorry, Mike. You're no athlete. That goes for you, too, Phil Hellmuth. The full article can be found here

Clearly the author of the article has seen Mike only a few times on TV and formed an opinion based loosely on the select outbursts that ESPN and the like replay 10 times a week. He even takes a jab at Phil Hellmuth which, in my opinion certainly deserves the negative attention. If you really want a hated player of the year candidate, Phil already has the crown.

You can play poker online with Mike at Full Tilt Poker. Look for any table highlighted in red inside of the Full Tilt Lobby, that means a pro is seated there and it may be Mike!
