    Re: Why does everyone hate us?

    I've never been one to see a lot of hate toward the New York Giants around the league. I'd say the Cowboys are easily the most hated, Patriots next, and a few other teams not including the Giants.

    I can see why a lot of people don't like New York and a few of it's other teams (Namely the Yankees).

    There are countless times where New York is shoved down your throat by the media as the 'greatest city ever'. It's the entitlement and the blindness to anything not New York related. Most people feel like New Yorkers live in their own little world, and to some extent, can't say I disagree.

    I personally don't care. New York is just not for me, though.

      [quote user="bronxvgiant"]I think everybody anymore hates Dallas and not because of their wins.They dont even like them in Texas anymore.The Texans have become the team there.[/quote]

      Not too sure about that. I live in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and I can certainly say that's not the case here. And the few times I've visited San Antonio lately (much closer to Houston), that seems to be the consensus there as well.

      The Texans have a big fan base that will continue to grow if they keep getting better, but I don't think they're more popular or more liked in Texas

              Everyone does not hate us.
              No one remembers who came in second.

                            [/quote]You have a great point. That still doesnt explain why everyone else hates the Giants, its not because you play in New York either because no one hated the Jets, pre-Rex Ryan.

                                Bread is confused, he, like most eagle fans, have a tremendous amount of dislike for the giants which is rooted in jealousy. Therefore he will only "see" the negative aspects about the giants while ignoring the positive ones.

                                All fanbases are roughly equal, you're gonna have D-bags and intelligent people. We can point to anecdotal evidence i.e. "the 49r fans were trolls so all 49r fans are jacked up" but really were seeing a tiny percentage of the fans and can't actually draw that conclusion with any degree of accuracy.

                                Eagle fans who feel the need to boast about their team on a Giants message board are really just despondent and entitled, (check out all the posts on igglephans or EMB where they say "but...but..but...we beat the Giants once this year snivel*") take from it what you will. People need to learn how to win or lose with grace, at least I can respect someone who can admit, when their team lost that they lost, not due to "luck" but becasue their team lost.
