Stop us if you've heard something like this before ... Michael Vick has been named "America's Most Disliked Athlete" by Forbes.

The polling conducted by Neilsen and partner E-Poll Market Research says 60 percent described Vick as an athlete they "dislike," "dislike somewhat" or "dislike a lot."

It is certainly not the first time that Vick has found himself on a list like this.

Vick just edged out Tiger Woods in the polling. Woods also hit at 60 percent but he had fewer respondents say "dislike a lot," giving Vick the dubious crown.

Forbes says Vick, "continues to struggle with casual NFL fans who know him mainly for his dog fighting legal mess, even as close followers of the sport love him."

Vick also has a high awareness number -- at 42 percent -- which Forbes says indicates he is known outside of the world of the NFL to a larger audience.

Among the others on the list behind Vick and Woods, Plaxico Burress, Ndamukong Suh, Kris Humphries and Kurt Busch.
