To have one of the most wonderful owners in the NFL, the Pittsburgh Steelers are the most hated team in the NFL. Even as a Steelers fan, I have to be honest when I say I understand why they would be here.
First off, they have won more Super Bowls than any other team in the NFL. That would be enough for most people to hate them.
If you ask Seattle Seahawks fans, the Steelers stole Super Bowl XL from them.
If you ask the Ravens, Browns and Bengals, the Steelers have simply been too good for too long and deserve to lose.
If you ask the Oakland Raiders, the "Immaculate Reception" was a load of crap.
If you ask the Rams, the Steelers should not have won Super Bowl XIV.
And that is just a small part of the equation.
Ben Roethlisberger has been accused of sexual misconduct on more than one occasion.
Rashard Mendenhall can't keep his fingers from typing words his mouth can't explain.
Hines Ward should be getting ready for football instead of Dancing with the Stars.
Joey Porter needed to shut his mouth.
And the list goes on and on.
When it comes to fan bases, Steelers fans are proud to boast we are SIX-TIME Super Bowl Champions. We are quick to say we are the best team in history. We are proud that our team is in competition almost every year for the playoffs.
To be honest, it does not bother me the Steelers are at the top of the list because if they were not my favorite team, I would probably hate them as well.
