Exactly. I don't know how Pats hate isn't more abundant after all that. The worst part is Belichick is still unanimously considered the best coach in the NFL, and the Pats organization is still regarded (by commentators) as one of the most respected and honest organizations. That's a slap in the face to the other coaches and organizations.

Teams I thoroughly loathe...

NCAA: Auburn, GA Tech, Florida, Tennessee
NFL: Eagles
NHL: Flyers, Rangers, Hurricanes
MLB: Phillies, Mets, Dodgers

Others are either "Strongly dislike", or "Whatever"

You know before really posting on the internet, my dislike for teams usually came from them being in the same division or being rivals for my team.

But, some faceless people on the internet and on messageboards, not to mention media has given me a whole other list of teams to dislike.

That's largely how I am.

But yeah, so many others have found their inner hate for whatever team due to the Web.

I forgot one (not a surprise since they're so damned easy to forget).

The Jacksonville Jaguars.

I f***ing hate that team. Why? It's not due to any divisional or conference rivalry or anything like that. It's just because they are, and always will be, the most irrelevant team in the NFL. Their own fans (what few they have) don't show up to their games, even during those rare seasons where they kinda don't suck. This is a team so bad that they were in the hunt to acquire Tim Tebow--not because they thought it would make their team better, but just because they thought it would put asses in the seats.

Now, why hate, rather than simply pity a team like this? Well, that's largely because for some reason, I end up seeing them WAY more often than I ever should... on nationally televised games. In an age where good teams with valid post-season aspirations often get stuck in a slot where you'll never see them unless you happen to live in their market, how does a team as boring as the Jackoffs get on Monday Night Football TWICE in 2011, especially considering how f***ing terrible they were? Was someone working at ESPN with MJD on his fantasy team pulling all the strings or something?

F*** the Jaguars. F*** their uglyass uniforms. F*** their mascot, who makes me feel like I'm having an acid trip whenever I see him. F*** Blaine Gabbart, the most pathetic excuse for a first round QB since JaMarcus Russell. F*** Guy Whimper, because... well, because his name is Guy F***ing Whimper.

Just get it over with and move the goddamn team to Los Angeles, Khan Noonien Singh. We all know it's going to happen eventually anyway, and the world will be a better place once it does.

I think the hatred for any time is pointless. I think hating certain players on said teams makes more sense.

As for the Patriots, everybody keeps harping on the fact that they "cheated" so they don't deserve any accolades for accomplishments. Well every team was "cheating" by doing the same thing, so they made an example of them. Just like every team was using bounties in the NFL, so they made an example of the Saints. It's kind of nieve to think otherwise.

That being said, the Patriots made two additional Super Bowls after being labeled as cheaters and had an undefeated regular season. I think the whole cheaters thing is just something people hold on too to make sense of why the Patriots have been so good the past decade and change.

I have respect for the Patriots organization and the players on the team, but I hate Boston sports fans so much that I have to root against them. Unlike the Celtics and Red Sox where I hate everything about the team and the organization itself.

Same deal with Kansas basketball, Bill Self seems like a class act and all the kids who come from there seem to be alright. But the Jayhawk fans are absolutely insufferable.

Jaguars were my favorite team when they first came about. Going to the playoffs in their second season and beating Denver was so awesome at the time.

80s and 90s I hated the Packers, Vikings and every team in that division. It felt like a repeat every week of them beating the Bucs, such a bore fest to watch. But now I like green bay, go figure...

Basically. It adds that extra dimension, it invests you in games you normally wouldn't give a damn about & makes the entire season more enjoyable.

Not to mention the fact that if you work or go to school with other fans, every week is so much sweeter.

I don't quite get how anyone could hate any of the Philly teams outside of the Eagles.

The Eagles are pretty awful. They're generally given the credit and prestige of a super bowl-winning team by the media, their players and staff always act as if they're some elite dynasty, but ultimately they haven't accomplished anything.

The Phillies have just kinda turned into the NL Yankees. But it's not really annoying yet because they've only won 1 WS and not 34.

The Flyers..well, if you're a Peguins fan, I can see tht. But outside of that, they've pretty much been a thoroughly unassuming mid-level playoff team for the past decade.

As a Mets fan, I hate the Phillies. Especially Jimmy Rollins. He talks soooo much **** for an average-at-best player.
