So who is the most hated team in the AFL by us the fans??
We all know the interstate teams like Adelaide and Port Adelaide hate each other and Fremantle and West Coast have a great hate. Who else Harthorn hate Essendon?? Collingwood hate Carlton/Richmond??
So lets see who is the most hated once and for all, lets start the poll for the Great Hate debate.
I look forward to seeing which teams supporters hate who.

Expect one way rivalry votes from offended bombers and pies fans for the lions
I like the lions.
but then i also like the blues and hawks. my essendon brethren don't approve.

I'd say we'd be up there.
I seem to come across a lot of fans who are open to most teams other than the Dons winning a flag if their own team wouldn't.
i don't blame them when you sit with our fans sometimes.

Rules committee and the umpires.....


The dislike in the way the games rules have changed and interpreted the past five or so years should unite supporters of the 18 clans.

Everybody hates Collingwood. It's the Law.
As a North Melbourne supporter, I'm constitutionally obligated to hate Essendon. But even if it wasn't in the club's constitution I'd still hate them.

My most hated will always be the Collingwood, Carlton, Essendon trio. The order changes, based on a number of factors but its always those three.

The history, the standing in Victoria, the big matches with huge crowds, the growing up and banter with friends. It's a pretty passionate rivalry.

The thread title should be club - not team. I don't really hate the eagles team, nor their supporters. The club, however, can GAGF.

And even then it's not so much directly them, more the clubs treatment by the media and the umpires. Much like how the Vic/AFL media treats Melbourne based clubs so differently and how that incites hatred.

It's a strange hatred/rivalry here in WA as it's their reaction to the actions of others that really defines it (if that makes sense)

Used to be the Swans when I lived in Sydney as you'd only ever hear about the Swans in the media (2012 didn't help either). Probably Carlton now, I remember the Carlton arrogance growing up in the 90's and it imprinted on me from a young age. In saying that, I went to a few Carlton games at the height of their powers in 1995 and the atmosphere at the games was insane. The round 22 game that year against the Bombers must've had close to 90k people and I remember it fondly as a neutral.
