All sports in the world have players whose mere existence generates controversy. In fact, take almost any high profile athlete, and you can find online forums where fans of the sport have heated arguments about the virtues and foibles of said athletes. Some athletes are polarizing because of, at least in part, their abilities as athletes. LeBron James, Tom Brady, and Bryce Harper generate passionate arguments primarily because of their skills and accomplishments, or lack thereof. Then there are players who polarize fans and detractors because of behavior off the field. Alex Rodriguez angered baseball fans with his steroid use, egotism, and infidelity. Muhammad Ali's controversial comments, intended to get into the heads of his opponents before entering the ring, were seen as showboating by some of his detractors.
Of all sports, the NFL seems to lead in the stat "polarizing star athletes". NFL players have been simultaneously praised for being comeback exemplars, while their colleages run afoul of the law. NFL players have become polarizing for coupling their on-field exploits with outspoken political stances. Some are polarizing simply because they are so strange, and behave so weirdly, you can't look away.
