Alex Rodriguez- comments, bc he's a Yankee now instead of a Red Sock. he'd be their (Sox fans) god if he played for that team
Clemens- on field actions, tough guy image, his "retirement"
People hate Jeter because he is vastly overrated, especially as a fielder, by the NY fans and media.
Ok. What I'm saying is that it has nothing to do with him as a person or player. There is nothing he does to bring the hatred. He doesn't seem to mind it though, as I can remember him saying that he viewed other teams' booing him as a sign of respect.
I dislike him because he once dated Mariah Carey, and I really, really dislike her. Silly? Sure.
I dislike Arod because of the slap.
I think you're probably overly sensative.
Honestly, the only team whose players I dislike are the Angels. Can't say why, exactly. I've got nothing against the team. I just dislike Angels and anyone who plays or played for them. I don't think I've ever drafted Edmonds, Erstad, Glaus, etc, etc, etc. I'd been drafting or trading for Vlad every year until last year. I can't explain it.
I'll own Yankees. I think you're overly being sensative, bucko.
I don't think I'm being sensitive at all here. I'm simply making a point about the actual reasons behind people not liking Derek Jeter. I think it can sort of be likened to here at the Cafe, Elisha. People like myself probably make too much of a deal about her that some people probably resent it; most likely they don't have a reason to actually dislike her, just the attention/praise she receives. I think this is nearly identical in this sense to Derek Jeter.
As for the Angels, I hate(d) those stupid Thunderstix
I've always hated her. She just doesn't do it for me, y'know?
Thats not really the point I was trying to make I understand that its in jest though
