    AZ and NM would be fans of the Arizona Cardinals. Though a division rival would normally be the first choice for a most hated team, apparently their first thought was the opponent in Super Bowl 43. Looked like the Cardinals had rallied to win the game on the long TD to Larry Fitzgerald with about two minutes to play, then Pittsburgh drove the length of the field to win it on the short pass from Roethlisberger to Santonio Holmes.

    Nebraska I can understand being part of the Rams fan base, but I had always thought that Iowa was Vikings territory.

    Hey, it's better than lobbing rockets and mortars at each other, right?

    Repectable showing but ::sniff:: we're past our prime...

    Yes, personally I'm sad we aren't more hated.

    It's hard to tell, but it almost looks like Long Island hates the Jets too.

    Oderint dum metuant!

    It's sad that our beloved team isn't given more of an accolade, though, as Rodney rightly says, it's only got itself to blame.

    Still, I doubt that any team has a more distinguished collection of jerks and numskulls rooting for its downfall:

    Borges

    DeOssie

    Florio

    Polian

    Easterbrook

    Shula

    Shaughnessy

    There are some odd aspects to this thing as well. Why would North Dakota and South Dakota, which border Minnesota, hate the Vikings? Why would Iowans hate the 49ers?

    I'm guessing this is based on a reddit poll with an extremely small sample size. Looks cool though.

    Re: Dakotas - yeah, there are a lot of Packer fans out here. We have 2 sports radio stations here in Sioux Falls - one broadcasts Vikings games, one broadcasts Packers games.

    Also there are a lot of Broncos fans in the western half of the state(s).

    I'm guessing the Packers fans + Broncos fans concentrate their hate on the Vikings, while Vikings fans hate a lot of other teams more equitably.

    For the record, if you go by state population, the Patriots are still the most hated team. ;)

    A bit like depending on the Electoral College for a win, but we'll take it.

    Borges was on Sports Sunday last night and he was in fine form. Essentially, everyone else in the media was stupider than him and anointed BB a genius back when he won 3 SBs with PETE CARROL's players and now their invested in covering up their mistake since he HASN'T WON IN 10 YEARS! Except for ME, Ron Borges, who knew he was duplicitous pond scum right from the start!! (see what I did there?)

    There are many fine things about Boston that I miss now I'm back in the UK, but, believe me, Borges is NOT one of them.

    People hate the Raiders? The last time they had any relevance was the tuck rule came...prior to that?

    I hate the Raiders. In fact, they're the only NFL team I HATE (I despise the Jets -- that's different). Perhaps now that Al Davis is no longer there it will change. But Darryl Stingley ...
