Deadspin has done of these articles for every team. Some of them are just brutal. The one for Bronco's had me laughing so hard I almost passed out.

Anyway, here's all of them for our division. I suggest reading the Steelers one last. If you aren't used to exactly how hateful these things are, the Steelers won will p1ss you off to no end...

Ravens: http://deadspin.com/5354697/why-your-te ... ore-ravens (http://deadspin.com/5354697/why-your-team-sucks-baltimore-ravens)

Bengals: http://deadspin.com/5352863/why-your-te ... ti-bengals (http://deadspin.com/5352863/why-your-team-sucks-cincinnati-bengals)

Browns: http://deadspin.com/5354194/why-your-te ... and-browns (http://deadspin.com/5354194/why-your-team-sucks-cleveland-browns)

In the interest of fairness, The 6 time Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh Steelers: http://deadspin.com/5354828/why-your-te ... h-steelers (http://deadspin.com/5354828/why-your-team-sucks-pittsburgh-steelers)

I like it, you know when a writer has to attack the town and the people that there really isn't anything bad to write about the team. One legitimate SB, ROTFLMAO....

Couldn't read half of the **** they spewed. The article screamed envy. "Boring style football" is fuggin hilarious. If notoriety is given to teams like Dallas and New England, let me have what we have any day. Dallas hasn't won a playoff game in 12+ seasons and New England has * behind every championship. I'm glad I'm a fan and sad for the rest of the deluded ones who aren't.

I didn't take anything in that article seriously...no one should. That is their shtick and how they attract readers. If you read any of the other ones, they follow the exact same formula: attack the fans, owner, coach, team and city. Mix it up and post. Repeat 31 more times.

Dumb humor, but I laughed out loud a few times.

And that's the only reason I posted it. It's some mindless smack talking, some of it is funny, some of it isn't. If anyone's taking this seriously they obviously ignored my advice to read some other teams first.

I like all the hating... Lord knows I hate 31 other teams.

i thought it was pretty funny. i like stuff like this every once in a while. its ridiculous but funny. the steelers wasnt that bad. most of it was steeler fans dont shut up about 6 rings. well who else wouldnt stop talking about it? i loved the ravens one. if you like incomplete sentances, urban decay and crystal meth baltimore is your town. thats so freakin hillarious

Rubbish.

Most of those "quotes" from the so-called other fans are all written by the same person. Same types of grammar and using the same pronouns, etc.

it's all shock treatment and the writer could use some. it's tabloid trash and that is all that's to it.

"they find one weakness on the team and pound away at it all season.." hilarious

the people on here breaking down the article like it's legit proves their point..

i realize it is all in fun and it is funny, the part about the only thing good or best about pittsburgh is, your not in cleveland made me laugh out loud. there too is some truths to what they say but, placed under the scope.
it's one giant roast,

they do well with this because it's so far from left field. it's like the book, 101 uses for a dead cat or the short people song.

I was expecting to click on the link for the Bengals and just see a picture of Mike Brown.

Anyway, how dare he make fun of the Ickey Shuffle... :nono

I laughed.

It was funny. It was supposed to be funny.

Just as a lot of their other "Your team sucks..." write ups were.

People just need to get a sense of humor.

I read the Raiders one and I thought it was hilarious - thanks for making me aware of these - they're great.

In regards to the Steelers thread - I look at it like it was my team getting "roasted" and I thought it was pretty harmless - for pure hatred read the Ravens one -

Yeah, I loved the Ravens one. I'll have to read the Raiders one next. Trying to read the New England one made my head hurt because of the attempted Bostonian accent.

You're talking about fans who still think their team is somehow more formidable because they wear silver and black. Oh no! Colors! JaMarcus Russell is in black! It's so slimming! How will we ever beat him? Oh, and I like how they play dress up for every game, too. Raider fans, nothing makes me shiver like knowing you spent half your welfare check over at Spencer Gifts.

That last sentence just wowed me - that's some serious smack talk there!

:owned

It's probably one of my favorite quotes from the whole Deadspin rant.
