49ers, they know why

Steelers, chumps! i hope but nothing but the worst for that franchise

Packers, Whitney little bitch ass punks, specially their QB.

Cowboys, how can a fanbase that hasn't accomplished squat in years be so cocky?

Redskins, these fans are 100% the worst in football, worse than the cowboys, or 49ers.

1: NY Giants.. Mediocre team that people think are elite with an average QB.
2: SteAlers.. Obvious lifelong hatred after SB XL
3: 49'ers.. Mostly for the amazing amount of blind homer unknowledgable fans and the way they seem to forget how shi**y their team was just 3 years ago. Also, how they talk about dominance when they have had only 2 good seasons in a long time. That they talk about owning the NFC west when since the merge hawks have 5 div titles to their 3.

I hope for these teams to lose every single week.

I am usually pretty blase in regards to opponents but the one team that got my goat was the early 2000's Rams. I still remember that disaster at Seahawks stadium in 04 when McDonald (?) won it with the long score in overtime after the Seahawks blew a 17 pt lead. Isaac Bruce and his helmet at mid-field mocking the fans. And the 0-3 record that year against them, with Torry and the boys saying they own the NFC West. In a round-about way, I had a lot of respect for them because they were the king of the hill back then during the Greatest Show on Turf.

Now the 9ers have my attention and I want to beat them. I have respect for what they have done and I really am not that worked up about any supposed rivalry, since that seems like something that you cannot force and has to grow on its own. I hope this can groiw into a Ravens-Steelers yearly slobber-knocker.

I think it is the fans of other teams in general that get on my nerve. Some just want to argue and troll for the sake of it and the idea of talking football doesn't happen. The Packers, Cowboys, Patriots, AFC West, Eagles, Washington skins along with those LG stealing Vikings are teams/fans I tend to notice getting a reaction out of me.

But, that's just it. It's the bling they like, not the team. It's the what have you done for me lately so I can brag about it crowd. Definite superiority complex thing going on with some of those teams fans. Obnoxiousness meter overload. In all honesty, I don't mind the non-bandwagon fans of those sorts of teams (that is, if any can be found.) Still, such a breed gets to use past success they as part of their shtick. That is an enviable position, but that in itself isn't necessarily reason for hatred toward them. It's what it does to most of them.

But, to fans of other teams... I suppose this all sounds a bit like this exchange from Rocky III (1982):

Paulie: I don't like these people.
Rocky Balboa: You don't like em'? Well maybe they don't like you either Paulie.
Paulie: [in awe] What'd I ever do to them?

Ah man, I really pride myself on hating on other fans. Don't suck me in.
Ok, I was one talking up Tavon Austin on this site before the draft. I loved watching him in college. I hate that he's with the Rams. I'm hoping he doesn't ruin even one of our Sunday's now. I was showing my boys his Walter Payton-esque high stride stutter step. (Before the draft) One of my boys, then, did that in a spring league game (not hot-dogging, but for a reason ;) ) in order to juke the opponent. He asked me if I saw his "Tavon Austin" move. For the record, he will now be referring to any such future maneuvers as the "Walter Payton" move.

It has always been about the fans behavior to me. I love the underdog, so I will pull for a team that isn't supposed to win. But not the Niners.

They were the only fans I knew that respected a team less for beating them. The only ones that used absolutely no logic in their rhetoric. It is easy to hate a team that beats yours, but just admit that is why. At least the fans of AZ and STL will tell you they hate you because they lost and because the team was good. A Niner fan would die before admitting the Hawks are good. Total denial and they have ALWAYS been that way.

No question that it is the Niners, but it only gets cemented more every year. My final point of no return situation was when Willis speared Hass while running to the End zone in 2009. The laughter and cheering on their boards was topper.

3. 49ers- Your QB is a complete arse...You will see as he starts making big bucks..
4. Cowboys- Just cause there owner/Gm is Jerry Jones.

After all those years in the AFC West I still hate the Chiefs.

But Denver Broncos and Oakland Ray-Duhs have life time reservations in my hatred of teams.

I live in Boston so the team I hate the most is the Pats, while a lot of people say you should hate your rivals while true but your hated team is also your 2nd most loved team you tend to even fallow them as much as your own team. Plus the reason you root for them to lose is because you respect them. A good example of it if your heated rival is bad for 3+ years you feel sad because its just not the same and your own love for your team aint quite the same then even if you wont admit it your praying that they get better because its so much fun when both teams are good. or am I just crazy?

Hey Kira,,,,,welcome to Seahawks.net

:th2thumbs:



Thank you and I got your email we are going to have many fun years to bicker on who is better 49ers and SeaHawks because no matter what each teams fan base wish's(deep down inside they don't) that the other team is going to go crashing down this year the next it wont. As long as 49ers have Kap and Seahawks have Willson they will be Elite.... Plus our Division is only getting better and stronger so even if both teams only win 9-10 wins each it wont mean we flatlined or we we got worst. It just means the other teams in our division got better...... Week 2 cant come any sooner (god I pray the 49ers Org don't think that way no reason to tank the game vs greenbay)

I hate niner fans. They make hating the niners so much fun. I only wish they had been around from 2003-2010 to take what they deserved. I think they'll be disappearing soon because their niners are going to return to their annual third place division finish for years to come.

I'm drawn to under-rated things and I hate over-rated things. So naturally, my favorite players are the under-appreciated ones while I despise over-rated football players- particularly those who are only over-rated because of their draft hype.

Right now, my most hated NFL team is the Colts. They were the first team in NFL history last year to go 11-5 with a -32 point differential. So we're talking about a historically flukey season. For whatever reason, the sports media didn't seem to detect this. Arians won coach of the year. Andrew Luck managed more RoY votes than Russell Wilson. Most unforgivably, their GM, Grigson, got exec of the year over John Schneider. The GM who built the NFL's best roster out of nothing and just found a superstar QB in the 3rd round, lost to a no-name, average GM who benefited from a fluke season despite a series of no brainer, cookie cutter decisions to build his (below average) team.

If the Seahawks lose to the Colts next year, it will sting worse than when they lost 21-0 to the Steelers in 2007.

Second least favorite team is probably the Falcons, who basically have 4 good players that carry the whole team. I think they are a good team, but they make my over-rated list. Steven Jackson will still be old and broken down in Atlanta, he's not going to be the difference maker people assume.

Maybe it's sour grapes, but they were extremely fortunate to beat Seattle in the playoffs. It was the ONLY 10 am start of the playoffs, Seattle got 0 points on 190 first half yards, and they somehow blew a lead with 25 seconds to go. It was such a "Seahawky" way to blow a game, so I probably shouldn't hate the Falcons for it, but it still stings. That game cost us a ring, I'm sure of it.

To round out the top 3, I'd probably include the Steelers. We still haven't beaten them, in fact we haven't scored a point on them, since SBXL. Until we get a revenge win, some antipathy will remain.

Most Hated:

1. Steelers
2. Cowboys
3. 49ers
4. Jets
5. Eagles
6. Rams
7. Cardinals

The Patriots used to be #2 on the list, but over time I've grown to respect them. They have commanded respect for more than 10 years, and finally have mine.

Keep making that wish.

I agree with what kira said above - you tend to follow the teams you hate or want to beat and know a lot about them. I follow all of the other NFC West teams constantly. They are the three teams I know more about than any others, except for the Rams. I don't hate any of them - well, I hate them more than anything twice a season each. And I ignore judgmental Rams' fans who tell me who I must hate.

I hate with a passion:

Patriots - obviously.
Steelers
Cowboys

And then I kind of hate the Packers.

I hated the Niners back in their glory days because unless it's the Seahawks I always root for the underdog. But I had no idea how slimy their fanbase truly is until they started winning in the division.

Yep Niner fans (not the handful of cool ones in here of course), you did what I thought was impossible: you pushed your team right over the Stealers and into the Trenchbroom #1 hated team slot. The odds were long, but your blindness to any criticism, refusal to give credit to another team/players/fans and your quick dismissal of any decent football conversation with that completely irrelevant "five rings!" chestnut shot you straight to the top.

To Fitz - do you live in St. Louis? Or are you an LA fan?

I'm curious about your Hawk love and SF hate. Most younger St. Louis fans hate Hawks and feel somewhat ambivalent towards Niners. Most LA fans hate Niners no matter what.

You hate Niners and feel some comraderie here. Are you old or not from St Louis?

You are so correct with the second paragraph. However, I find both Hawks and Niners fans to be exactly as you define right now. Minus ring talk.

I get the zero thing as Niner fans go all crazy insulting like I'm talking about the war against England when I simply point out the fact that the last NFC W team to win a SB is the Rams.

Other than rings though, both teams' fans seem similar to me. I think both have a ton of talent and look forward to this season.

And here I was, hesitant to put my "cool ones" caveat in that post, and you had to go and be all nice and stuff... :th2thumbs:

I reserve the right to change my answer to Niner fans whenever I want.

They really might be over the top right now. We need real games to start and imagination to end....

1. niners - no explanation necessary

2. panthers - Cam Newton
3. falcons - Roddy white and there obnoxious fans

To Fitz - do you live in St. Louis? Or are you an LA fan?

I'm curious about your Hawk love and SF hate. Most younger St. Louis fans hate Hawks and feel somewhat ambivalent towards Niners. Most LA fans hate Niners no matter what.

You hate Niners and feel some comraderie here. Are you old or not from St Louis?


I never lived in St. Louis or San Fran. I'm Florida bred. When the Rams moved to St. Louis i was 11 and just starting to like football and i liked the colors of the team and became a fan. My Niner hate stems from all the stories and just never liking them even when younger for some reason. The Hawks i never disliked or anything since they had a lot of down years, but were never scumbags like Niner fans were to the Rams when they had down year...lots of down years. I guess you could say once i became a fan of the Rams i enveloped as much of the past and rivalries and understanding there greatness as much as i could to know them better. As i said in my OP, still not a fan of the Seahawks, but that has more to do with current events rather than anything in the past.

1 - SF (hated them the most even while they sucked for the last 10 years)
2 - Tie between STL and AZ... I don't really harbor much hate for the AFCW teams anymore
3 - Dallas... though my hate has lessened, because they've been bad to mediocre for so long now, even though their fans don't seem to have noticed.
4 - Pittsburgh - I really should be more mad at the refs than the team itself. But I cringe every time I hear some mention of them "winning" SB XL. Also, all of their bandwagon fans annoy me.

I guess you could say I can't stand bandwagon teams... so SF, PIT, DAL. I enjoy seeing them lose as often as possible.

How so?

Every team has their bandwagon/fairweather fans, and yes it seems to be a lot more 'Hawks fans since about, oh... say 2005 than what I recall before that. But I don't think you could put the 'hawks in the same class as SF, PIT, or DAL.

Obviously I could never hate my one and only favorite team since I started watching in the 80's. But if we got to that level of DAL, I'd probably be annoyed a little bit... in a 'where were you when we sucked?' sort of way.

100% agree. Listening to the SVP show on ESPN radio right now and the topic is "top 5 best fanbases". Of course the Seahawks are dismissed because our relevance is "too new". You can guess what teams made the cut.

Well guess what Van Pelt? When the Seahawks celebrate their 100th season, the bleeping Packers and Bears are going to be almost 150 years old. Guess we will NEVER be relevant huh? Moron.

The old guard and east coast teams will always get the attention. They can have the front runner fans as well.

I hated the Niners back in their glory days because unless it's the Seahawks I always root for the underdog. But I had no idea how slimy their fanbase truly is until they started winning in the division.

Yep Niner fans (not the handful of cool ones in here of course), you did what I thought was impossible: you pushed your team right over the Stealers and into the Trenchbroom #1 hated team slot. The odds were long, but your blindness to any criticism, refusal to give credit to another team/players/fans and your quick dismissal of any decent football conversation with that completely irrelevant "five rings!" chestnut shot you straight to the top.


You are so correct with the second paragraph. However, I find both Hawks and Niners fans to be exactly as you define right now. Minus ring talk.
I get the zero thing as Niner fans go all crazy insulting like I'm talking about the war against England when I simply point out the fact that the last NFC W team to win a SB is the Rams.

Other than rings though, both teams' fans seem similar to me. I think both have a ton of talent and look forward to this season.


This in a nutshell. I am a 49er fan and I like to think I remain objective. I have lived in the UK my whole life and struggle to hate any team, that doesn’t mean I’m not a passionate supporter, just I have probably encountered less “annoying fan bases”

Going on both the 49ers & Seahawks forum I see a lot of posts that could, if you swapped the names (players and teams) round, be posts from either forum. E.g. Carrol/Harbaugh is a douche, Kap/Wilson will be found out in the next season, Sherman/Kap are arrogant annoying players and the one I see the most – Whiner/Shehawk fans are idiots and homers. Tbh, if you try to remain objective it’s pretty funny reading the two.

Because the division was so close and the teams are so good both sets of fans feel they are justified in saying that their team will dominate/win next season.

Also, no matter how much knowledge a poster has on the NFL, I severely doubt they will ever dedicate enough time researching and reading about an opposition team as the team’s own fans will, people also tend to view things subjectively as well. In all forums there will be fans who use twist situations to suit their viewpoint. E.g. picture of Kap in front of the car - to my understanding he was sponsored by Jaguar and was given it free, I am willing to bet he would have had to fulfil some promotional obligations, which tend to be being pictured/seen with said sponsorship item.

Anyway, apologies for the long post.

Also, to stay on topic, fuck the Pats! Only team I dislike, there are so many Pats fans in the UK, the vast majority of them are because of the Super Bowls and nearly all the Pats fans I played American Football with were very annoying about their team. I got great pleasure in beating them in December, especially after the total lack of respect in the build up.

Before anyone says I am a glory hunting fan, I was introduced to the 49ers (and American Football) by my cousin in the early 90s. They are the only team I really know of (I was 7/8 at the time), I only “properly” started following the 49ers around 2003 and have continued to be an avid supporter through all the crap days.

Want to stomp their entire franchises into the sewage: 49ers & Steelers.

Wish they could be a bit more crappy as teams, but don't actively despise: Broncos & Giants.

Like laughing at the incompetence of: Chargers & Cowboys.

Now genuinely feeling sorry for, due to decades of incompetence: Raiders

I actually wish the Rams and Cards well when they're not playing us. Other than Marshall Faulk's barely disguised contempt on TV for our franchise, there's nothing there that annoys me. You can't really hate on players like Fitz and Chris Long They're good! Maybe I still carry too many grudges from the AFC West days and there isn't enough room for more...

And I just don't care about the Redskins. Even after a hyserical woman in a Griffin shirt tried to start a fight with me in a bar after the playoff game last year.

The NFL is a Bandwagon sport in the first place thanks to Fantasy Football... Ontop of that you got a lot of fans just from Pete (USC). Then you have more who hoped on because people love bad boy teams something you guys are becoming. A huge section of your fan base are bandwagon fans and you know what there is nothing wrong with that.... Just don't say you hate teams because of bandwagon fans you know something about glass and stones.

So you are saying the only cure to our bandwagon problem is to start sucking again?

I don't much like the raiders. Although I would sport a Bo Jackson jersey.

Ravens(everyone probably knows why)

Raiders, absolutely hate there fans but as a team I really don't mind them at all

Seahawks, rams, and cards, they are division rivals so I have to hate them, but doesn't mean I don't respect them though
