Who do Buccaneers’ fans hate the most of all time? The tournament has reached the finals.
The time has come, Bucs Nation. The time has come to decide who you hate the most in Buccaneers’ history. The team has treated us to a large number of personalities to hate, both on and off the field. Years of futility will do that to a fan base. But who is the most hated? You have spoken, and your two most hated have been chosen. Now it’s time to choose the most hated.

“Bucs Most Hated Man” enters the finals, right now.
The matchup you have chosen is Greg Schiano vs. Michael Clayton.
First up is Schiano. To earn his spot in the finals, Schiano beat out Mark Dominik, Bo Jackson, and the late Hugh Culverhouse. The hatred of Schiano is well-documented, and easy to understand. He came to Tampa with a great deal of excitement, following his Pinstripe Bowl win in his final game with Rutgers University. What followed was very little to get excited about.
It started out with some promise, as the Bucs posted a 7-9 record in his first season, 2013. The second year, however, was a huge step backwards. They finished 4-12 and frankly, he lost the team. Players left the franchise because of Schiano, and he also embarrassed the team, crashing victory formations in an act that his team couldn’t even accept.
Is he the most hated in franchise history?
And now we have Michael Clayton. He simply never lived up the hype of a first round draft pick. Clayton was chosen in the first round of the 2004 draft, and to his credit, had a strong rookie season. Year one yielded 80 receptions, 1,193 yards and seven touchdowns. Bucs’ fans thought they had their number one receiver for the next several years.
It didn’t work out that way.
Over his final five years with the team, Clayton never posted more than one touchdown in a season. His best season yielded 38 receptions for 484 yards, a far cry from his rookie year. He never returned to form, and was finally gone after the 2009 season. After a strong opening, Clayton turned into another first round bust.
Is he the most hated ever?
Time to pick the champ. Three days, have at it!
