Having grown up in da bronx loving the game during the days of mantle, maris, berra, ford my top 5 most hated teams are:

1-Yankees

2-Yankees

3-Yankees

4-Yankees

5-Yankees

6-New England Patriots

a close 7th after these past 3 years or so and after the Brett Favre year (some time ago now), their most recent clown years with the Sanchez and Ryan show followed by Tebow last year (has much more to do with the Jets than Tebow I actually wish they had left the man alone since they did not have their act together at all) and the infamous butt fumble the....................................

7-New York Jets

NFL: Da Bears - they have fans like Bearsfan above. They're about the only fans dumb and mean enough to bitch about everything to do with the sport, including their QB's bad play when it was obvious to everyone the guy was injured. If I'm driving on an interstate in Wisconsin and I've got a jack*ss riding 3' behind my bumper, odds are at least 3:1 that he's got Illinois plates (literally, no exaggeration - Chicago drivers are genuinely that awful). I used to hate the Cowfelons, but they're kind of insignificant right now. MLB: Yankees - a bunch of overpaid, prettyboy whiners NCAAF: 1) Michigan - they get too many undeserved, lucky wins against the Badgers. 2) SEC - Gotta love all that wonderful "tradition" (i.e. all decent players in the conference are not just scholarship players but are salaried) NCAAB: 1) Duke - the last half dozen Duke fans I've met have been obnoxious 2) Purdue - Badgers cannot seem to beat them in West Lafayette. Soccer: ALL. It's a dumb, boring game, period. Too many players doing nothing more than scurrying around meaninglessly on a too-big field with nothing ever happening. It's about the only sport where the fans will say a 0-0 tie is "BRILLIANT!!!" - it's not, it means that nothing whatsoever happened, as opposed to the other matches where nothing at all of consequence happens more than 99% of the match. Try to comment negatively about soccer and the standard retort is "You're just ignorant about the sport!" this coming from a group who (outside of the U.S. at least) who make Bears fans look like intelligent, well-spoken, polite people. When said players actually get a 10 second portion of the entire game when they are not just scurrying (sorry, but grown men should not engage in scurrying) and are near the ball, there's a 50% chance that they're going to fall over and "dive" (whiner soccer player pretends he got hurt by a "foul" and does crybaby act trying to convince ref to throw a penalty flag). Really swell sport, guys.

Ha ha, yep we sure do.

No, we got it.

I'm still a little unclear on Wisguy's position on soccer. Could you expand on this a bit?

I'm guessing that he used to get pants'd by the JV soccer team back in middle school......or maybe they took his lunch money. Just no other explanation that I can think of.... :-D

Maybe I'm just in denial and am fighting conflicting feelings, too insecure to admit if I actually like something so instead I just lash out in cowardice, unable to come to grips with my own emotions and preferences.... maybe I'm... trying to suppress my guilt about being a secret Futbol Fan!? Or maybe I really, really dislike every single solitary thing about adults playing and/or watching adult soccer. This is a thread where one can discuss/vent/bitch about, etc... one's sports dislikes, is it not? So I kvetched a few times about the world's most popular/boring sport? If you want to complain about excessive repetition, how about the dozens of near-identical posts by the several Slow-Play Gestapo guys. Sheeesh, I have to wonder, are some of you secretly wearing little tricolor French flag bikini briefs?

I'm assuming you don't like hockey either.   Soccer is very similar to hockey except it has a moving blue line and more strict rules.   Incidentally, the ref doesn't throw a penalty flag.

The concept of a "moving blue line" is probably one of the main reasons North Americans don't "get" soccer.

I "get" soccer, I just find it mind-numbingly boring to watch. Wanna play? I'll jump right in. Playing soccer = Fun. Watching = Horrible.

I like to fish...I don't like to watch other people fish. Same thing to me.

    • I get the logic behind the gap narrowing, but those would have to be some pretty crappy greens for it to make much of a difference, so I answered the same.  What are we really talking about here? The slightest fraction of a stroke at most.    
    • Let me see if I can present this another way. Player A is a good putter and makes 50% of his 8’ putts on tour quality greens. Player B is a bad putter and only makes 10% of the same putts. For argument’s sake, let’s say a bumpy green deflects the ball to a degree that it affects a putt holing 1% of the time, both good and bad. Player A’s make % on a bumpy green would still be 50%. He loses 1% on good lines but gains 1% on misses. Over 1000 putts, the bumpy greens deflect 5 (1% of 500) of the putts he would have holed off line and 5 (1% of 500) of the putts he wouldn’t have holed into the hole. Player B’s make % however becomes 11% (10.8% if you’re a math major). He loses and gains the same 1% as Player A, but since he’s less likely to hit a good line to begin with, the bumpy greens affect him differently. Over 1000 putts, he misses 1 (1% of 100) he would have made on a perfect green, but makes 9 (1% of 900) he would have missed. On a bumpy green, this player holes 108 putts of this length, versus the 100 he would have holed on a perfect green. Player B is a slightly better putter on bumpy greens while player A stays the same, this narrowing the gap. I hope this makes sense. I think I did the math right, but I put this post together here and there while working, so mistakes could have been made.
    • Yeah, not sure. Didn't think about this too much, just the first thing that popped into my mind. BTW, didn't say the imperfections would not matter, just saying they'd matter less close to the center of the cup than they would at an edge.
    • Go to a local golf shop and try stuff out on a good launch monitor against your own clubs. Some places let you do it for free. Others may charge by the hour. As mentioned above, the driver is a good one, so may not see much improvement there. However, some of the newer drivers may give you more ball speed and lower spin, so you may find some better drivers. Generally, for me, the only clubs that get changed out are my driver and wedges because I’m quite fond of everything else in my bag, but even my driver is a few generations old.
