I was just curious who folks will be rooting for in this game today.
To me, the New England Patriots are THE most hated rival of the Pittsburgh Steelers right now and I will root for whoever they play every single week of every single season unless we need a win from them to help ourselves out. They have consistently knocked PIT out of the playoffs this past decade and kept us from appearing in at least two more Super Bowls. Without NE, PIT is clearly the team of this past decade. Of course there is also the spirit of fair play issue that the Patriots don't pay any attention to. Rules evidently do not apply to them.
Obviously the Ravens are a hated division rival as well. Any time you play an opponent twice per year there is going to be some bad blood and the Ravens are definitely one of my least favorite opponents. However, Baltimore has never beaten us in the playoffs and kept us from going to a SB.
My top 3 most hated teams would look like this:
1. New England
I was just wondering if most agree that New England needs to suffer a home field beat down today at the hands of our divisional rival Baltimore. I would love nothing more than watching them lose at home in front of their fans.
