In our bracket to determine your Public Enemy No. 1, it's down to two men who are forever linked in Dallas/Fort Worth sports history.

Fan voting has matched up Alex Rodriguez against the man who signed off on what was then the biggest contract in baseball history, Tom Hicks.

Rodriguez put up big numbers in Texas, but the Rangers finished in last place every year he was here. After being dealt to the Yankees, he took a shot at the "24 kids" he was forced to play with in Texas.

Hicks' ownership of the Rangers and Stars wound up in bankruptcy for both teams.

There are many reasons for fans to dislike both men. But only one will garner the title of Public Enemy No. 1. And it's up to you to make that choice.
