I used to agree with OP about Phil Gordon, but I just think he became quite an easy target. He wasn't really liked much by his peers at the table, but I actually prefer him now to the others like Lindgren etc.
Funny Phil Gordon vid getting owned HU live vs Gavin Smith:
(watch from 1:30 -> 4:30)
and getting owned HU on FTP
For me, most annoying players are:
Mike the Mouth (Just STFU about having heart etc. It's easy to have "heart" when playing with other people's money. Now settle your debts and STFU)
All those players who were clearly using gimmicks to get TV time (ie sponsorship) - Humberto with his annoying sharks, Hevad "RainKhan" Khan with his stupid bulldozer act, and so many others
the guy who looks like a big umpa lumpa tilts me, trying to help Tony G pick on Andrew Robl but just ends up looking like a dickhead:
this clown had been "on the circuit" for about 2 months having binked a donkament and suddenly thought he was some kind of a super star. Just wind your neck in and STFU !
"Croc man" - Anyone remember him. Though it would be hilarious to have a crocodile as a hat on his head. Here's a vid of him talking crap during a hand he's not even involved in:
