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 like the points and all that I see a lot of excuses and all... me as a fan of sports I never hated say the Patriots when they went on that run of Super Bowl wins... disliked some of the fan base... and when I heard of spy gate I thought well thats messed up but thought nothing less of the team.  Laker's won all those with Shaq and Kobe didn't hate them, once again some fan's were so cocky but had no reason to hate the Laker's (Hornets fan) but now that the Hornets are in the West and are one of the main competitions for the Laker's now they could get to be some great rivals... so on and so forth with all sports.  But maybe that is just me and that is just to simple and easy to not hate a team that doesn't make sense to hate and all...

Success breeds contempt , and nobody has been more successful in the history of MLB than the Yanks. I'm a Cards fan , In the 50's and early 60's, as a kid I got sick of the Yankees being in the Series every year. Yet the 1964 Series is still my fondiest memory. We beat the Yankees!! You should worry when people stop hating the Yankees. I'm starting to like Notre Dame a little more every year!!

Well said, Lifequest... I think some people hate the Yankees cuz their team doesn't get the media attention, nationwide, as theirs does. But it's not like the Yankees are begging for the media attention... scrutiny... it's definitely a double-edged sword, imo. Others still hate the Yankees cuz of all their past success. It does get a little ridiculous on these boards when a lot of posters like to hate on the Yankees rather than focus on the positives of their own team...

Oh and the Braves have never taken up a playoff spot and done squat with it. Right?

The worst part about Yankee haters is that they can't even see that what they hate about the Yankees is what they should be hating about the very team they root for. But hey go on and continue to deflect those feelings towards the Yankees, never let anyone get in your way of your goal of being a totally biased hypocrite.

It's not the fact that they spend money on all those players. It's not their fans, I'm from Mississippi and have never known a Yankee fan.  It's the fact that year after year I have to hear about New York being the toughest city in the world, and how great New York is by the media.   This goes for Boston too, but unlike Boston, the Yankess use their talent to waste playoff space every year and don't win a thing, but yet and still I have to listen to how great thy are day after day after.................SMH. It's depressing thinking about it. Just implode the stadium already and disband the team. I'm sick of em. Go away......PLEASE.
