    Re: You know you are great when you are hated

    I remember when we werenít hated ó we were laughed at. Dubose, Franchione, Price, Shula. Spotty success, lots of coulda woulda shoulda. Precious little can, will, did.

    Iíll take being hated any day. Plus, I donít think itís really hate. Itís really envy.

    Most great teams have the same problem. The loudest and most obnoxious of them get the most attention. The fair weather fans seem to come out of nowhere. Suddenly there are tons of Patriots fans and Bama fans. They are seemingly everywhere now.

    Part of it is a team's success, Alabama, Nebraska, but a lot of it is about the team's behavior, Miami, FSU.

    I think Bama would quickly drop off that list if the program would go into decline. Notre Dame however is a team that will always be on the list whether or not they are winning.

    Maybe, maybe not. Bama was the second most televised team back when only a few games a week were televised. Probably not because we are a nation of Bama fans. Winning 20% of the poll national titles over the last 60 years will create envy and sports hate, even in the down years!

    Love the hate, I embrace it. Hence my sigfile quote.

    The list should be entitled "Most winning teams"......

    Glad to see the Buckeyes on that list!!! Not happy to see my Lakers or Dodgers on it.

    Speaking of the Lakers, what a disastrous season. LeBron is a great player, but he cannot be considered one of the GOAT until he learns to make other players around him better and picks up the intensity on the defensive side of the ball. What made Kobe and MJ so great was their unrivaled will to win and complete games - they were as good on D as they were on offense.

    Some of these really make no sense.

    Warriors: How can you not respect how Curry plays or Kerr coaches?

    Maple Leafs: Thereís just nothing about the team or the town to hate, grammatically incorrect name notwithstanding. Doug Gilmore seemed like a jerk on the ice, but heís (a) long gone, and (b) the exception that proves the rule. I get that itís a Canadian thing, but objectively the Habsí fans are far worse.

    St. Louis Cardinals: Their fans ARE the best in baseball. I once attended a game there that guaranteed poor turnout in any other mid-sized city: mid-August; 100 degree, 1000% humidity day; no-name opponent; Cards hopelessly out of the playoff picture. They still drew 25k.

    I'll take it

    Never understood the love for the johnny-come-lately underdogs who are the beneficiaries of what the big, successful, programs have invested over 100 years. Let'em hate us. UCF, I'm looking directly at you.

    Yeah, arrogant teams or arrogant fans don't help a team to gather the love. Probably why some really good teams don't make my list; I'm never in contact with their fans.
