What is a "hater"?

In real life, a hater is someone who cannot see past their internal negative biases to say anything positive or even neutral about a topic. A hater is the cranky old man who refuses to smile at anything but others' misfortunes. A hater is the snotty kid on the playground who can't wait until someone wipes out just so he can laugh at them.

In sports, a "hater" is anyone who says anything remotely not-positive about your favorite team. It doesn't matter if the comment is true, false or even negative in the slightest. If someone writes anything longer than 20 words that doesn't start with "YOUR TEAM IS THE COOLEST!" the general fan response is "tl;dr...hater."

So, here at B/R, we're taking it to a whole new level.

All 32 teams are ready to lose this weekend. These aren't picks to win—I'm literally picking against all of your teams. Why? Because I don't very much like them, and I don't really like you either. It's nothing personal, you just look funny.

Bring on the hate!
