With each passing game, it’s becoming more difficult to deny that Patrick Mahomes is the best NFL player of his generation. The two-time Super Bowl champion is arguably the NFL’s most dominant quarterback. He’s a two-time NFL season MVP, a two-time Super Bowl MVP, and is shattering records across the board. But somehow, salty people still find ways to hate the Kansas City superstar.
Let’s cut to the chase and say that it’s incredibly difficult to find genuine reasons to hate Mahomes. We don’t blame Raiders fans for despising him because there’s a real rivalry there. However, most so-called fans have ridiculous reasons for loathing him. Let’s call them out now.
Kansas City Chiefs Burnout
Overall, this is petty but arguably also one of the most reasonable reasons to hate Mahomes and the Chiefs. Salty NFL fans can’t stand it when teams establish a dynasty or become a dominant force. We’ve seen it in the ’80s with the 49ers. Then the Cowboys came along in the ’90s. The next and most dominant dynasty was the New England Patriots, who everyone wanted to see lose.
Now the Chiefs are perennial title contenders and two-time Super Bowl winners in quick succession. Nobody outside of Kansas City wants to see them win again so they vent their ridiculous fury online. Mahomes is their most high-profile player so it’s not surprising that he receives the brunt of their anger (via A to Z Sports).
