It’s not even a debate man, just let it go.
Lol nobody hates Florida so I had to give them a pity vote
I don’t really hate a team.
There’s a good chunk of an obnoxious, victim card playing, arrogant fan base that I could do without though.
Washington's the one team that would ruin my summer if they won the Cup. Everyone else I'd be kind of "meh, whatever". But Washington? I got drunk a lot during the summer of 2018 so it would pass by in a blur.
Voted Tampa because nobody should be at 0 in this poll
I tend to only dislike teams after a rough playoff series or two, particularly if they're the better team and it's frustrating to watch. I hated the Hawks for a bit for this reason. But the Canucks have been too bad for too long that I'm pretty indifferent to most other teams at this point except for some being more interesting to watch than others.
Voted Montreal. Even though they haven’t been as relevant to the Leafs as the Bruins have due to recent playoff history, I think I just respect the hell out of the Bruins as an organization, so I don’t dislike them as much as the Habs.
Also looking at Max Domi’s smile makes me want to vomit
Though addressed to you, this applies to anyone who shares your views.
Your hate for the Leafs is entirely created by your own imagination. The Leafs coverage by our media is nothing but negative press, like to a repetitive degree, its nothing but criticism and opportunistic passive-aggressive shots at whoever f*cked up in some way the previous game. Dumbasses take a random TSN poll, intended to incite conversation, and assume that single incident is the common narrative - it isn't, you just aren't being exposed to the 200 other media members each writing articles intending to stir the pot. (We don't care about the stupid articles either, which is why we don't click, I didn't know there even was one about Matthews stache until reading your post. You know about it, however, because you click on these articles, as Leaf haters always do.)
The idea that anyone can generalize with any sort of accuracy a group of thousands, let alone millions, based on the only obvious interest they all share is moronic to the Nth degree.
What you actually are saying; "I feel angry and resentful that a team with no recent success gets what I perceive as an unfair share of, what I assume is, positive coverage. And my very limited dealings with only a few of these fans has prejudiced me against all of them, because they try and stay positive and will defend themselves, and because I am a uninformed"
No, what I am actually saying is that the leafs get a disproportionate amount of media coverage, I don't care if its positive or negative. I dont read the articles, I see the headlines when I open TSN or Sportsnet, Leafs articles outnumber every other teams articles combined 2 to 1. Its bloody ridiculous.
Can't speak for him but i get tired of the crap we hear about the Leafs at every turn and we are also feed up with their arrogant,Uneducated fans who believe and try to spread the word on how great their team,players are even though they haven't won dick in 52 plus yrs and counting,
But to add i also get the last laugh when they disappear yr after yr come playoff time with nothing accomplished as usual.
Well it was Nashville for a couple years after the last Anaheim-Nashville playoff series with San Jose firmly in the number two spot. Now, as a Vegas resident and with VGK's history with the Sharks it's pretty far and away San Jose at this point. Also helps that a lot of the more odious Nashville players I've disliked over the years aren't on the team anymore. Don't really hate any other teams. LA is more of a fan rivalry both between the Ducks and Knights.
Canes, Leafs, Jets... plus every team who has finns.
As Bon Jovi said "you're halfway there..."
I don't really hate any team. Obviously the Leafs are obnoxious but that's just to do with the media, not the team itself.
I do find a lot of teams really boring and uninteresting though. Teams like the Panthers, Canes, Coyotes and to a lesser extent the Devils, Wild, Isles, Habs. The first three just lack an identity and have never really been successful (outside of that 1 Cup the Canes won in '06).
As a Bruins fan (an older one) it will always be Montreal although there are a couple of Hab HF posters that I like.
I don't like the Flyers. The Nuck fans were annoying in 2011.
As a STH in Boston as far as fans go it is the Flyer's fans that are the worst.
Ill say Boston but I respect the hell out of them. Always a good team.
I really question do people hate team(s) or fan bases/media coverage of certain teams?
Personally I don’t hate any team, not even sure anyone could hate a team. Certain fan bases yes are tougher to like b/c they're so arrogant & complain the NHL/refs is against them and even tougher still is when the media coverage of certain teams is far higher/greater (due to $$$) then their accomplishments are.
