07:14 AM ET 10.23 | Michael Vick may be back on the field this weekend, but his image remains in need of repair. It's been more than four years since Vick was released from federal prison, where he served 19 months for bankrolling the dog-fighting operation. He's performed well and avoided trouble ever since. Yet he is still stuck at or near the top of our various annual lists of disliked athletes. Once again, he tops our list of Most-Disliked NFL Players, according to the latest surveys from E-Poll Market Research, a California-based firm whose E-Score measures public opinion of thousands of celebrities based on likeability, awareness, confidence and many other attributes. Pollsters have told us on a few occasions that while Vick scores well with hardcore NFL fans, casual fans still identify him mostly with the legal woes of a few years ago.

Throw him a bone and put him in a kennel.

most 'casual fans' probably don't know the difference between offsides and a motion penalty.

So for the "casual fan," he's still in the doghouse?

But they know the husbands of all the Kardashians, all the characters on Duck Dynasty, and what's most scary, they vote.

Just thinking the same thing.......we're in deep trouble.

Useless poll. So he can't get a Campbell's soup commercial, he has a contract paying him $600k a game. When TO was still able to suit up he couldn't get a team to sign him for $600k a year.

If you listen too much to public opinion you end up with something resembling Congress.

I tried and tried to like Vick, but it's hard.

Marcus Vick makes it hard on him, as well. He kind of reminds everyone what Vick is really all about.

Marcus Vick is that dumb, embarrassing little brother your Mama made you drag around on dates.

Out of sight, out of mind. His ability to stay in the game is limited. He may be the best QB the Eagles have, which isn't saying much, but age is catching up to him and the injuries make him kind of useless.

This should be his last season, but some foolish GM will see to it that it isn't.

Reality will hit him hard when he has to go out and get a job, after Big Brother's career is a wrap.

He did his time and has cleaned up his act but people aren't so willing to just forget about the horrific things he did and like him all of a sudden.

October 23, 2013  09:04 AM ET

You don't need a market research company to know ConVick is a scumbag.

OK, but ask those same people who were polled to name three other players they would consider and I suspect they could not do that.
