Beloved/disliked: Tampa Bay Bucccaneers
By Pat Yasinskas
Here are the results of your voting for the most beloved and disliked figures in the history of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Beloved figure: Mike Alstott.
Reader comment: “The thing about Alstott is our love for him wasn't so much his contributions to the community or charitable works (which he has plenty of, albeit maybe not as high profile/numerous as Derrick Brooks or Lee Roy Selmon).But to me and probably a lot of other fans, it's just that every time I think of the A-Train, I think of Chris Berman going "Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom" as he literally ran over would-be tacklers on Sportscenter highlights and was the most consistent interest generator for an area who usually gets no respect nationally. Brings a smile to my face every time. No one on the Bucs has ever been as FUN to watch in my opinion as he was." -- -Leroy, Gainesville FL
Runner-up: Derrick Brooks. The voting in this category was the closest of any throughout the division. Alstott beat Brooks by two votes.
Disliked figure: Hugh Culverhouse.
Reader comment: "Hugh Culverhouse. The guy basically ruined the franchise for as long as he ran it, traded our only franchise QB (Doug Williams) out of town because he wanted a new contract and he missed out on what Bo Jackson could've been."-- Carlos, Panama.
Runner-up: Keyshawn Johnson. This one wasn’t all that close. Culverhouse received nearly twice as many votes as Johnson.
