Default Cowboys Voted by America as the NFLís Most Hated Team (Steelers #3)

Cowboys Voted by America as the NFLís Most Hated Team
http://nationalsportsreview.com/spor...st-hated-team/
By: Matt Loede

It seems that the sports nation (according to ESPN that is) has spoken when it comes to the teams that NFL fans across America love to hate. Mike Sando of ESPN wrote today about a poll that some 870,000 readers of ESPN took on 25 topics, and one of great interest was the amount that fans do not certain teams.

In their poll, the teams that got the most votes for being hated went as followed:

Dallas Cowboys (36 percent)
New England Patriots (34 percent)
Pittsburgh Steelers (12 percent)
New York Giants (9 percent)
Oakland Raiders (9 percent)

So it looks like Dallasí nickname of being known as ďAmericaís TeamĒ is out the window with these results. The Pats being second is not a big shock with their success and the whole ďspygateĒ saga of a few years ago.

Pittsburgh has such a rabid following, possibly the best in the league, so that also makes them a target for not being liked. The Giants are a New York team, so they have a lot of lovers and haters, but maybe the one that is the most shocking is Oakland. They have not been a contender since their last Super Bowl where they were bombed by the Buccaneers in 2003, but in many fans eyes, they are the team that many still love to hate.

Third? THIRD?! We should always be #1 and always ahead of New Cheatland* and the Cowgirlies in everything! We're just going to do more, keep winning so that we take our rightful place as the most hated team and fanbase in not just America, but the world!

I like the fact that we are one of the most hated teams in the NFL.

When people stop hating us and start to pity us, then it's time to be worried.

Being hated means we are successful, so let the haters hate. I will just greet them with a Six Rings reply and flip 'em the finger.

this poll is actually really telling. most people hate the cowboys because they claim to be "americas team" even though they are pretenders who havent even won a playoff game since the '95 season, yet still act like their shit dont stink.

just about an equal amount hate the patriots because they have been exposed as cheating frauds who think that their shit dont stink.

as for the 12% who voted for the steelers the breakdown is easy.

2.5% of all voters are disgruntled brownfans.
2% are beaten down cowboy fans.
2% are jealous patriotfans.
2% are sore raiderfans.
.02% are bunglefans (not enough fans to have actual significance in a poll).
1.5% loser raven fans.
1.98% fans of all other teams.

i would say most nfl fans in general appreciate our ownership and style of play and recognize us as the best team of all time.

people actually like it when we win as opposed to the cheaters and posers.

it is good being king with an 88% approval rating.

can no lose!

My thoughts EXACTLY---who came up with this sucky poll? WE should be in first place!

Like Vince Lombardi once said, "There is only ONE place, and that's FIRST place."

Dallas and New England give you great reasons to hate them like cheating and having d-bags on their teams

People hate Pittsburgh because of jealousy and we beat their favorite teams more often than not

huge difference
