Study Says Steelers Most Hated NFL Team in 2020



Success often breeds jealousy, and the unbeaten Pittsburgh Steelers are no different.

According to a recent study by SportsInsider, the Steelers are the NFL’s most hated team in eight states, which is the most of any club.

The site received some 90,000 tweets that all includes the phrase “I hate the Steelers,” and Pittsburgh received the most hate by far.

The Steelers animosity was most prevalent in Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Maryland, Delaware, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.

While Maryland and Ohio are obviously home to division rivals, it is unclear what Pittsburgh ever did to draw the ire of Rhode Island. 

The most hated teams in Pennsylvania were the Baltimore Ravens. West Virginia overwhelmingly detests the Cleveland Browns.
