    the Indians? Really?


    I gotta call bullshit on this one. Yeah, I'm an Indians fan but I can't imagine there are a whole lot of people in Peoria that gives them a second thought. But you can find Yankee haters anywhere. ANYWHERE.

    What say you, SportsJournalists.com?

    The Yankees are, by far, the most hated, followed, in no particular order, by the Red Sox, Mets, Giants, Dodgers, Cubs and Phillies.

    No one else draws much passion either way outside of their home city.

    They must have interviewed the Indians own fans.

    Maybe they interviewed some activists who hate the Indians because they feel Chief Wahoo is a racist stereotype.

    All kidding aside, there is no sports franchise anywhere more hated than the Yankees. Dallas Cowboys are the only team that's remotely close.

    Maybe they polled people outside the theater showing Major League II.

    The Yankees are hated more than all the other teams in MLB put together.

    The vast vast majority of all fans everywhere don't give the Indians enough thought to hate them.

    They probably interviewed people in Riverside and Akron.[/crossthread]

    Looks like it took into account what fans of the team in question thought. If that's the case, it doesn't surprise me one bit.

    Speaking of: Major League II is on one of the Stars channels right now.
