Are the San Francisco 49ers the most hated team in the US?

Aug 2, 2014 at 10:06 PM--


San Francisco 49ers fans love their fiery head coach, Jim Harbaugh. However, the rest of the NFL may not feel the same way. Or maybe it is the fact that for the span of nearly two decades, starting in the 80's, the 49ers beat up on -- well -- just about everyone.

Whatever the reason, if the below maps are correct, the 49ers are one of the least liked teams in the United States.

Reddit user KMHokie35 asked Reddit users who their least favorite team was. He then gathered the information based on region/state and created the maps below to give you a better visual of NFL hate.

Let's start with the regional map of the United States. A lot of this is not surprising. Seahawks fans hate the 49ers. 49ers fans hate the Seahawks. Cowboys fans are not big on the Eagles. The Cardinals are still holding a grudge for Super Bowl XLIII. There is nothing terribly surprising here.



What gets interesting is when KMHokie35 displayed the data based on continent. There is some serious USA hate for San Francisco's home team, the 49ers. Seriously Mexico? Oh, and Australia -- what gives?!



PS - Kudos to you Africa!
