In general people love their local football teams. If you're from Denver you love the Broncos. If you're from Seattle you love the Seahawks. If you're from Minnesota you hate Green Bay. Oh yeah, we hate other teams too.

Now if I did a poll here on what your favorite team is mostly what we would get is a geographical poll. The most popular teams tend to be teams that (a) win and (b) are in the largest metropolitan areas of the country. Most people however love their local team win or lose. That's not so true for teams we hate. We may hate a team because we hate the owner, a specific player or because of a game lost to them years ago. I'm curious as to what teams are the most hated in the NFL and so I've created the following poll.

Poll
What NFL team do you hate the most?
Arizona Cardinals
Atlanta Falcons
Baltimore Ravens
Buffalo Bills
Carolina Panthers
Chicago Bears
Cincinnati Bengals
Cleveland Browns
Dallas Cowboys
Denver Broncos
Detroit Lions
Green Bay Packers
Houston Texans
Indianapolis Colts
Jacksonville Jaguars
Kansas City Chiefs
Miami Dolphins
Minnesota Vikings
New England Patriots
New Orleans Saints
New York Giants
New York Jets
Oakland Raiders
Philadelphia Eagles
Pittsburgh Steelers
Saint Louis Rams
San Diego Chargers
San Francisco 49ers
Seattle Seahawks
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tennessee Titans
Washington Redskins

As a Packers fan, no other team comes to mind other than the Viqueens.

I am weird. Apart from not liking or following sports....when I liked sports I would usually love the first team I cheered for in the first game I watched and hated the other team.

The first game I ever watched was the NY Giants vs the Denver Broncos superbowl way back in like the 80s?

I loved the Giants, and I can't stand the Broncos.

Oh and I am in CA.

Finally, the last foolball game I've watched was the Bills and Cowboys superbowl. It was like the 4th superbowl that the Bills lost in a row. When was that?

I grew up in Northern California. I lived 7 miles from where the 49ers training camp was and have great memories of going to watch their training camps with guy like Montana, Young, Rice and Lott. I now live not far from Arrowhead Stadium and have several Chiefs players who live in my neighborhood. Yet I'm a huge Vikings fan.

I am the complete opposite and now dispise the 49ers. They would train at Sierra College in Rocklin during the summer...and would complain about the swim teams that held their championships there. Sure kids would run to watch them and try to get their autographs, but they hated us being there in general.

To this day, the only time I will cheer for the 49ers is when they play the Broncos. Other than that I hope they lose, and lose bad.

I'd have given you a tip if I didn't know you.

Actually, to pick one team, it is the New England Patriots.

I will never forget that game they stole with the "Tuck Rule" and I will never forgive.

I voted Packers due to my 18-month stay at UW-Madison (although I rooted for fellow Hokie Antonio Freeman), but that's nothing compared to what I feel about the Miami Hurricanes.

I hate the Raiders because:

1. They play dirty, then gloat when they get away with it or whine when they're called out on it.
2. Their arrogance. "Committment to Excellence." That's come back to bite them squarely in the ass in recent years.
3. Their move to L.A. blacked out way too many games for me when I was growing up. All those matchups between Dallas and San Francisco? Blacked out because the Raiders were playing some sadsack like Cincinnati at the same time (a game that wouldn't sell out, so I would get NO football to watch in the afternoons).

I picked the Bronco's due to both conditioning in my youth, and just generally disliking John Elway (partially for the teeth, partially just as the hated rival team fixture).

Still, it's good to see the so-called "America's Team" in the lead. They were a close second for me, and deserve to come out on top in this poll! yuk

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

Personally, I should hate the Cowboys the most (especially as an Eagles fan), but I've grown to hate the Patriots the most ... and for that matter, all Boston sports teams.

Probably one too many 'Sports Guy' columns of moan and groan, as every team in the city won a championship within a decade.

I got a lot of love for the city of Boston these days, in light of the recent tragedy, but I still hate their sports teams.

The team I hate changes over time. For a while I hated the Joe Montana 49ers, but right now it's a toss up between the Steelers and the Jets. Next season it could be anybody.

They're doing the world a favor by cleaning their own gene pool.
