Previously we have examined the great fan blogs of the NFL and Major League Baseball, and what an interesting journey it was. But every great story needs a strong antagonist, and to that end we now present the anti-blogs โ€” those Web chronicles devoted to abhorrence and loathing โ€” what the French call b te noire. Hey, we hate the French! Grrrr. So for the next few weeks, we'll attempt to sort it all out, with your help of course. What's your favorite hater blog? Let is know at tips@deadspin.com.

There are several reasons to hate the Patriots.

a. The Tuck Rule Game (Raiders fans only);
b. The Snowplow Game (Dolphins fans only);
c. The fact that Tom Brady lists Gerald Ford as the most impressive person he's ever met (Open Enrollment).

And if you can't get behind any of these, perhaps you'd like to compose a Haiku. Let the hate begin.

3. Stop the Patriots. Yes, it's time that the Patriots were shot back down to earth. But they will be gentle bullets.
2. I Hate The New England Patriots. Includes the hard-hitting expose: Tom Brady โ€” putting on a few extra pounds?
1. Pittsburgh Dish. "I hate the Patriots because they are detached and disdainful. They're the machine in Lang's Metropolis. If Capra were directing the NFL, the Patriots would be Mr. Potter or D.B. Norton."
