I am just going by what ESPN put out there.

Actually, I did screw up. Chicago wasn't listed and Dallas was. Sorry about that.

Hating a whole city (sports-wise) is energy consuming on the hater. I might not like certain franchises or fanbases of franchises, but could not extend that hate to all of the people of the city or all of their sports teams.

I don't particularly care for the people who give the Eagles and Flyers fanbases a bad reputation, but I know that not all of those Philadelphia fans are like that. The Red Sox and Patriots have developed some not-so-nice members of their fanbases as well, but I wouldn't collectively lump them all together (especially since my wife is a New Englander. :lol )

The more winning a city's teams do, the more brazen that those fans get. As soon as they start losing, it's amazing how the bandwagons rapidly empty. Even in the bigger cities.

As a person born in the hated Tri-State area (NY-NJ-CT), I have had to fight that stereotype all of my life. Those of you that have met me know that although I still like the Yankees and Islanders, I'm not that obnoxious fan who makes you want to run for the exit 10 minutes after we meet.

I root and support my teams, but realize that there are other franchises out there. I whole-heartedly support a salary cap for Major League Baseball. It would be for the benefit of the entire league. The Yankees may not win as many championships, but the overall health of the league and all franchises would be for the best.

Sorry for creating a tangent on your poll, just wanted to present an alternative to unwarranted city-hate. You're now returned to your major city bashing....

I hate New York the most, even though I like the Giants. I just really hate the Yankees, Mets, and Jets.

Boston is probably #2, with the Patriots and Red Sox, though I don't mind the Celtics.

LA would be #3, though I hate almost every college and pro sports team from California (except Stanford). :p

I hate everything sports about NY especially the yankers. The Giants are the closest thing to a team I can stand, only because they play the cowpatties I like rooting for them.

If Dallas was on the list I would have voted Dallas x 50. I hate the Cowgirls, the Mavs, the Rangers, the Stars (I don't even watch hockey) and anything having to do with the city. It's the city, the franchises, the fans, the traffic I must endure trying to pass through.... Everything. But I voted Boston because extreme hatred for the the Patriots.

This is a really interesting topic for a Boston fan!

It's so funny... 10 years ago, I don't think there was a sorrier creature on the planet than the Boston Sports Fan. No one hated us really. Aside from those good years with the Celtics in the 80s, we sort of embodied the tortured sports fan. If anything, we were pitied, not detested.

Remember the Patriots' first Super Bowl? On the heels of 9/11, the Pats come out of the tunnel as a team, refusing individual intros, against a seemingly unbeatable foe. That seemed to resonate with the entire country and I feel like in those early years the Patriots had a lot of fans around the country.

Or the Sox in 2003, with Grady Little and Pedro and yet another soul-crushing loss to the Yankees? Who could watch all that transpire and not feel a shred of pity?

Younger generations of Boston fans, and those who have jumped on the bandwagons after our teams started winning, can be obnoxious for sure. They weren't around for that '03 ALCS or the early 90s Patriots (1-15, 2-14) or Bill Buckner or Bucky Bleepin' Dent. But for those of us who went through the previous failures and disappointments, we try to keep a healthy perspective on things.

I remember being a kid and kind of hating Joe Montana and the 49ers... not because I actually hated them, but because they were good. Now when I look back, I realize it was just sort of the manifestation of a lot of sports fan envy. So I try to wear the Hated Boston Fan thing as a badge of honor of some kind, knowing that it's never anything personal, and that it's the price a fanbase pays for prolonged success.

Cheers all, here's to you! :toast

That's my feeling. I was cheering so hard for the Patriots in 2001 and the Red Sox in 2004. I was so happy that Boston finally had some winners.

Then they kept winning, plus ESPN and the networks kept showing them over and over again. :p That is what soured me. It really is nothing personal about the city (though I have nothing really bad to say about the city of New York either). It is just success breeds contempt (not to mention that the Pats have caused some pain to the Titans in 2003 and 2006).

Funny how fast things change huh? Iíll admit I was pulling for the Patsies against the Rams in that Super Bowl and even for the Sox in 04. I bought into the whole patriotic angle though most of my rooting against the Rams was because I was still bitter about our Super Bowl against them. Belichick, Brady, and the Pats were the model of what a football team is supposed to look like and were starting to look like the new Americaís team. But as the Pats won more super bowls and with the egos inflating and the aftermath of the tapes, any admiration I had for the team quickly diminished.

That could be the case for some opposing fans, but not in general.

No offense to you, or any New England fan, but some of us Titans' fans do not like the Patriots a bit.

1. For what Brady said "We're not going to play down to their level" that was referred to the Titans.

2. Bilichick unfortunate quotes or arrogant personality.

3. The videogate case.

4. 59-0

It's like Payton Manning, he has had his share of unfortunate quotes "At least we're not a 5-11 team" That was back in 2005. And then all the arm flopping, and the arrogant attitude he had for years.

I do like Montana and I consider him the best QB from all times that I had the luck to watch through many games. He was never cocky or said unfortunate things, he was a class act as far as I remember. Those 49's team had strong personalities in guys such as Ronnie Lott, (who I consider one of the best if not the best DB that this game has seen) but he spoke strongly on the field.

Even though spygate didn't effect the Titans directly, and hell getting a mudhole stomped in them you can't blame NE for not running it up. Hell the players and coaches sure didn't

Spoil it for the rest of NYC.

Maybe its the fact that they play in a league that allows them to have a payroll that dwarfs any other, or the spineless commissioner that shut down the league and World Series to break a union, but allowed a literal monopoly on high priced talent to remain by not implementing a salary cap.

Maybe its the fact that Yankee stadium was half empty when Winfield, Guidry and Mattingly played on their average teams in the 90s. I never saw "Got rings" t-shirts, or every average human being wearing their garb. So my problem isn't with Billy Crystal, who showed up there as a kid and has every lineup since 1950 memorized, its with Kate Hudson.

My beef isn't with Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Jorge Posada or any other Yank that is homegrown. Its with Sabathia, Burnett, Damon, Teixeira, and ARod, who have helped ensure that the sport doesn't give more than half the league any chance at all at success longterm.

Its with the 10,000 fans that show up at the Rogers Center and make Jay fans feel hopeless. The Twins or Angels don't have to face those guys 19 times a year like the Jays, but yeah its a fair fight.

I love baseball but the Yanks and Bud Selig have made it awful tempting to run away.

I agree with pretty much everything you said here. The one thing I will say for Yankees fans is that the one game I went to in old Yankees Stadium was enjoyable. The game itself was a real good one which was nice, but what I'll remember is that all the fans near me were knowledgeable and were actually quite friendly. I wasn't expecting that at all. I was expecting the fans that we've all come to hate (most of us at least), but I guess the vocal minority that act like that weren't in my section.

Ditto. I went up there in 08 to watch the Yanks and the Reds. I was expecting hell being a Reds fan (especially after the Reds took the lead). It was a complete opposite. Because of that I do not hate the Yankees as much as I did going in. I will never cheer for them though.
