Most Disliked/Hated Sports Team/Athletes

Sun Aug 16, 2009 7:27 pm

In the spirit of "Greatest Sports Icons" thread, let's turn it around and hand out the bad apples or sour grapes awards to the worst teams or athletes for their records,curses,bad attitude,rivals,on and off-field antics and whatever else that fits that they deserve this dubious award.

I'll start:

Hated:
Al Davis and America's Ghetto Team,the Oakland Raiders.I've prettying much said what I think of the Traitor Raiders and they're city loyalties and ripping off people's money.So I'll say while the Raiders have one hell a merchandising department,but of recent,they can't play football worth s**t.Prehaps when Davis leaves,I'll have a better opinion.

The Rams leaving Los Angeles.
O J Simpson
Vick

Records:
2008 Detroit Lions

Cursed:

The LA Angels and Boston Red Sox.The Angels can't seem to win In the playoffs against the Red Sox.

I agree with that sentiment, but our biggest rival right now is Baltimore, in the Steelers' case.

As for the Penguins, it's hands-down Flyers first, Capitals second. I have never seen two fanbases that whine more about doing less.

That is unfair. Ray Lewis is a great person. What evidence do you have that the man is a "super thug" or are you just pulling random assumptions outta your  butthead . Name a defensive player and leader for a team in the last ten years that is better than Ray Lewis.

P.S. the ravens are not the most hated NFL team. Where do you get this from? I think you might a steeler fan. If anything, i'd say the Patriots are, and i'm a Pat's fan.

Some of us are still nice... 

As for hated sports teams, put me down for the Bonds-era San Francisco Giants (literally no-one liked them outside the Bay Area because of him) and the Mets (I've always said that the only thing worse than a Yankees fan is a Mets fan) for baseball.

As for other sports:

-Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barcelona (both suffer from bad cases of Steinbrenner Syndrome)
-Ferrari, McLaren and Williams in F1 (their conduct on and off the track is nothing short of embarassing)
-Denver Broncos (even though he's long gone, I'll forever associate John Elway with the team)
-Calgary Flames (I've never met anyone outside Calgary who feels anything but disdain for them, which makes them unique amongst hockey teams)

As for teams hard up on their luck, I present the Philadelphia Phillies. Don't let their recent success fool you; they have the most losses of any professional sports team on the planet, with well over 10,000 and counting.

I was living in the Dallas Metroplex when Jerry bought the team. You would have thought the world was ending. And when it was announced that Tom Landry was being shown the door and Jimmy Johnson was being ushered it - well let's just say that the news specials on the local networks were akin to those of when JFK was killed in Dallas.

I agree with FuturePilot16, what evidence do you have against Ray Lewis? He is one of the last remaining class acts left in the NFL. He plays as hard as anyone on the field, but there's a reason he'll go up to players at the end of the game and give them hugs. He seems like a truly nice person.

As for me:

College:

Oklahoma Sooners (bunch of classless idiots  Silly)
Texas A&M Aggies (tee hee)
Notre Dame Fighting Irish (wake me up when they're relevant again...no matter how much Lou Holtz thinks they are)
Arkansas Razorbacks (bunch of classless idiot inbreds)

MLB - BoSox. By the way, real class act last night, Varitek, having two consecutive pitchers throw at Kinsler's head after we stole 8 bases against you, one of them hitting Kinsler in the shoulder and head. Not anybody else's fault that you should have retired three years ago.

College Football (American Football) - Oklahoma, Oklahoma, Oklahoma, Oklahoma, Miami, Florida, Oklahoma, Florida State, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, USC. And Oklahoma. I am not a fan of Texas A&M either, but they would actually have to have a football team for me to even care  Wink

I agree with all except Joey Porter, he is an all about me kinda guy and he doesn't play that hard. He is way overated and just because he used to be a steeler doesn't make him great. Even with all that, they are not the leaders like Ray Lewis is. Man if I had a chance to play with this man on a football team, I would relish that opportunity.

Yet it just so happened that a Steeler initiated helmet to helmet contact with McGahee in their last playoff game last year. Hmm, I wonder who the aggressive ones are? It's well known throughout the NFL that the Steelers are the most aggressive hitting team, and they get away with all these bullcrap helmet to helmet hits that could seriously ruin somebody's career.

After looking at the replay for only about 856,000 times it showed Ryan Clark leading with his shoulder. McGahee lowered his head. Clark made contact with his shoulder about a split-second before their helmets made contact. It was a supremely ugly hit tho...

here's a youtube video of that ugly hit. At 53 seconds in (slow-mo) I think it looks like the shoulders make contact about 0.1 seconds before the helmets collide. There is helmet to helmet collision; no doubt about that. But it looks like 1) shoulder-to-shoulder before helmet-to-helmet collision and 2) McGahee puts his head down before the collision.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGRFqOipcTg

Or, perhaps we can just agree to disagree here...

If it's any consolation, I did NOT cheer when McGahee went down!

What's interesting that from an outsider's point of view, more people dislike the University of Oklahama Sooners than the University of Texas Longhorns.

As ESPN Radio's Colin Cowherd observes, it might be the cities where these two teams play their home games. Go to Norman, OK--no much to do in terms of a wide variety of nightlife unless you're willing to make the drive to Oklahoma City itself about 4 miles (7 km) north. Meanwhile, the campus of the University of Texas at Austin is literally located right next to downtown Austin, one of the most vibrant arts and entertainment area in the entire USA (especially true during the South by Southwest Festival during the early spring). In short, for Oklahoma fans college football is everything, while Texas fans have more entertainment choices than just college football in the fall--and in my opinion, you can tell by the somewhat myopic passion of Oklahoma fans versus Texas fans.  Smile

During the 1970's, whenever Pete Rose was playing an "away" ball game, was at bat, and his name was announced, The whole stadium would boo something terrible. Also, whenever he'd strike out, the fans would really cheer loudly. I actually felt sorry for him even though I wasn't a Reds fan.

Whoaaaaa!!! I'm sorry I didn't know you were a lawyer or prosecuter or a forensic analyst who carefully examined the scene of the crime, ortherwise, I wouldn't have said all those great things about him. It's amazing how people feel soomehow wronged when a celebrity is not convicted of murder. I guess everytime a celebrity is convicted, we should just throw out all that "Right to trial by Jury" crap and charge them immediately as not to anger the normal people of this country.  confused  . If the man was not charged with murder, then he's not a muderer, take it as it is, and if you feel that you are some how right and that he in fact is a murderer, then take it up with the supreme court.

Most disliked sports person: Michael Schumacher. That controversial clash with Damon Hill in Adelaide 1994 which claimed him his first world title is appalling, to say the least. The fact that he tried it again with Jacques Villeneuve three years later just makes it more clear to me that the Hill clash was no accident - he knew his car wasn't up to it, so he had to take the easy way out by trying to take his opponent off the track to win the title. To think he only got a slap on the wrist for that incident makes me mad.

Most disliked sporting team: Fremantle Dockers (AFL) - worst club song, worst colours, never had any success on field ... I hope they continue to linger down the bottom of the ladder for decades to come.

Hate the Yankees all you want, but the man doesn't deserve that name - in a game filled with cheaters, he'll be the last to show up on a steroid list.

Well, not much into US sports, but I can give opinions on soccer.

Beckham is clearly one of the most hated footballers; dive diva Cristiano Ronaldo also makes many people cringe at his sight.

Most of the most hated teams come from England, including Man. United and Chelsea, both teams I don't really appreciate. In Spain, Barcelona fans and Real Madrid fans go at it and because of the huge emphasis on soccer in Spain, they become some of the most hated clubs as well. The Ajax-Feyenoord rivalry in the Netherlands also makes them very popular or unpopular in that country. The National Teams of Germany and England's fans also dislike one another's teams and hence they end up disliked (many people seem to be anti-England around the world, but they do have fanatic supporters as well).

From a Romanian perspective, Dinamo is the most hated internal club because of their perceived dirty tactics including paying the referee, opposing teams, etc in the 1990's. Ceahlaul Piatra Neamt is a smaller team that's intensely disliked by Romanians.

As far as national teams, Romanians dislike Bulgaria and Hungary the most, there being a century-old rivalry between them.

Romanian people have a love-hate relationship with both Adrian Mutu and Chelsea because of the cocaine scandal in 2004, I think.

I hope the narrow perspective of the latter part of the post is not off topic.

Quoting CXB77L (Reply 39):
Most disliked sports person: Michael Schumacher. That controversial clash with Damon Hill in Adelaide 1994 which claimed him his first world title is appalling, to say the least. The fact that he tried it again with Jacques Villeneuve three years later just makes it more clear to me that the Hill clash was no accident - he knew his car wasn't up to it, so he had to take the easy way out by trying to take his opponent off the track to win the title. To think he only got a slap on the wrist for that incident makes me mad.

What about Ayrton senna at suzuka 1990 then?

I didn't start following F1 until after Senna's death in 1994. I am therefore in no position to judge the legitimacy or otherwise of Senna's foul move. Just because Senna did it doesn't make it right.

Having said that, if you were to ask me hypothetically, I doubt very much that I'd have been a Senna fan at all.

Leagues/Teams:

NHL - Any Sunbelt-based team. Ruination of hockey. Get the league back to 20-24 teams with 8 based in Canada.

MLB / NBA / NFL - don't follow, don't care

CFL - it's impossible to hate Canadian football. It's like being in an exclusive club with some funky rules.

Northern Baseball League: Fargo Redhawks

People:

Pretty much all the commissioners. Way too self-important. Maybe Tagliabue is OK, from what I have read (If he's still there?).

I forgot a special mention under people: Tim Finchem. Worst thing that's happened in PGA history.
