I'd like to get to know why all the Yankee hating

Posted on: August 13, 2008 3:07 pm
 
Now in all the years I've been a Yankee fan I've seen a lot of hatred for the Yankees.  (When I was younger it was weird to see people hate the Yankees as much as people do now) Now it is bitter hatred.  I don't know how old these fans are, how long they paid attention, why say a Brewers fan would hate us, or a Cub's fan would.  That doesn't make sense.  Any AL East fan base fine, can count them as rivals and stuff.  Even a team that wins and meets us in the playoffs and beats us or we beat them fine.  (Look up Colts and Patriots they hate each other like there is no tomorrow) I wonder why they want to see the Yankees falter so bad and fail.  What is it the Yankees owner does that spends money hurts you? Are we Yankee fans supposed to be sorry about that? I see so  many different fan bases on our boards with every loss, or seeing us want us out of the playoffs its FUNNY.  I'd love to actually see the reasons why and love to find out how long you've hated them and so on and so forth.  And obviously I'm sorry if some of our fan's are ignorant but all fan bases have those type of fans.

I will say that when they were winning the WS (1996-2000), that team did not annoy me as much. They played the game the right way. There were likeable players. There were no egos.

I agree and def feel that because as a Yankee fan before that and until then there were no egos and it was revered as "classy" and all.... now it isn't and all this hate (for good reason) whether it be by our fan base or Hank or George just being stupid and "going onto the next million dollar project" instead of getting a non action or a want to talk baseball action its a disgruntled "you're a Yankees fan" ha ha...  oh well it is what it is I guess until things change I suppose.

I'm a Met fan and I do hate the Yankees ...

For me, a lot of it is the disparity between how much they spend vs how much everyone else spends.

They can afford to go after any player they wish and if it doesn't pan out, they just move on and buy someone else. How many other teams could have afforded to make a $40 million mistake on Carl Pavano? They were the only team willing to commit to $35 million for Bobby Abreu and thus were able to trade for him without giving anything up.

It's one thing to win consistantly because you make good personnel decisions. It's another when you can just outspend everyone.

Recently, Hank Steinbrenner has been complaining about things also. That also really gets to me. I don't care how many injuries a team has. When their 25 man roster (with injuries) is still more expensive than every other team in baseball, you have no right no complain.

Well thats one thing I really try and stay away from BigMarc because I doubt any of us have been alive for most of the World Series (if we have the kudos to you for knowing how to use the computer so well ha ha) I'm 26 so I go with when I've been paying attention. I've never seen the original Mr. October... nor have I seen Micky or Maris or any of the classics like them... my favorite (Donny) has never won anything with them... which really annoyed me.  How I long for the days of "my" youth of the Paul, Tino, Boggs years ha ha...  boy they were some classic years.  With the "other" Joe under Torre... and utility players like Pat Kelly not Wilson Betimit... and  so on and so forth....

It's just the years & years of Yankees laying the wood to everyone else and everyone else is finally catching up and some passing them... Born & raised in NY currently living in Cali and attending Angel games with my Yankee gear on, I hear it all, but I just got one thing to say to them and tehy shut up: 26 to 1...  26 World Series to 1 World Series...

It's sad how people get on a Ban Wagon. When the Yanks were great everyone loved em, sported there uniforms, shirts and so on, but when things happen like great player get hurt, pitching isn't great and they did have a few good trades, people tend to forget and ride that Ban Wagon Again. I'm not a yanks fan but I'm sick and tired of people Riding That Wagon. I think Offing Joe Torre really hurt the team. He had a certain chemistry with the players and vise versa. Give em a year or two and they will be back and so will the Ban Wagon Riders. Isn't this enough to just make you sick. I likr the Pirates and they offed a lot of good players and kept some real duds. All Well. I expect that from them. But not from yhe Yanks fans or so called yanks fans. They will prevail and the Red sox arn't much better either. So I'll Just close with GO Rays for now. Hang in there , they'll be back just as strong if not stronger then before. Can't keep them down forever.

Great points JSB and BigPapi... I think that a lot of the hate comes from the fan bases Yankee fans and Sox fans...  and them making other teams hate their teams and all... me I wouldn't hate say the "Twins" because some idiot fan comes over and is just being ignorant... but thats just me.

I don't really care for the braves either, but I had to pick a team, and they are the closest to me.

;  I'm not sure that 'hate' is the right word.  People use the word casually, and it is pretty difficult to
actually HATE a sports team, in the way that one might hate evil.
      
;  NYY has more 'press' than other cities, and so, gets more press.  There are an infinity more
papperazzi in New York constantly spilling out yatter re the New York teams, and, with the Yankees
success, and payroll, re the Yankees.  Truth be told, I think that most of these 'Yankee-haters'
are a myth, though many Yankee fans would like to believe that they are real.
      
;  In any case, recently, even a Yankee fan would have to concede that you are not getting
very bang for your buck.

me as a fan of sports I never hated say the Patriots when they went on that run of Super Bowl wins


I HATE the Patriots, and my team isnt related to them in any way, Im a Titans fan. You know why I hate the Pats? (yes this is getting somewhere to your question) Because living in Maine thats all I hear about. Everyone is all over the Pats here and it gets annoying, kind of like this message board. 80% or more of these threads are created about the Red Sox and Yankees and Im sure fans get sick and tired of it, I would. No one talks about the Orioles, Jays, Nats etc, I know why, cause they suck and have little fans, but still their lack Cubs, Brewers and other good teams threads because of all the Red Sox Yankees. It goes for ESPN too, they never talk about bad teams, why? Because there bad they don't deserved to be talked about?

I'm surprised there arent as many Sox haters, the Yanks history does have some to do with it and people root for the Sox cause of that, but I think that my point is also a big reason people hate the Yanks here.
