There’s nothing that sports fans hate more than when rivals enjoy success. Mahomes has seen plenty of it in his short career with three Super Bowl appearances and two rings. He’s a two-time MVP and has already broken many records. If he retired now, he would still become a first-ballot Hall of Famer.
But his rapid success is another petty reason why salty fans hate him. The only romance in this story is that Kansas City won its first Super Bowl in 50 years. Otherwise, he’s a first-round pick who is delivering on the field and that’s boring. It doesn’t make sense but that’s the NFL (via Deadspin).
