7: Alex Rodriguez (A-Rod)

Football News

The famous baseball player hasn't exactly been everyone's cup of tea over the years, and that was before he was found guilty of taking performance enhancing drugs. 

A combination of unprecedentedly lucrative contracts, coupled with a glittering career marred by allegations of drug abuse have mean that A-Rod has drawn a fair amount of fury from the fans.

He signed the most expensive baseball contract to date in 2007, a 10-year-deal that will land him a total of $275million- that's enough to give certain people the hump on its own. 

It's almost with a certain smugness then that sports fans can smile at the thought that Rodriguez stands to be banned for a record 211 games for his part in the Biogenesis scandal, if his appeal is rejected.
