NFL teams love to troll each other especially when they have a rivalry. New York and Washington are two of the biggest franchises on the east coast and their relationship reflects this. In 2021 the Giants threw the game away against Washington after a shocking penalty execution.
Then Washington stole victory from the jaws of defeat with a field goal. They decided to rub salt into their rival’s wounds with a petty tweet. The Giants didn’t appreciate this but there was nothing that they could do about it. Perhaps they’ll take their revenge in 2022 (via Yardbreaker).
RB Leipzig is one of the most hated soccer teams in Germany. Rival fans despise them because the Red Bull franchise bought and developed the club. They think that the team has no history and that they’re effectively a glorified marketing ploy (via The Guardian).
German giants Borussia Dortmund hilariously trolled their rivals in 2019. This came when the 10-year challenge was a popular trend. They posted a side-by-side image of Leipzig’s 10-year history. But the punchline was that the East German team didn’t exist in the previous decade.
Some of the best troll jobs come out of nowhere. The Saints made headlines in 2022 when they tore into their divisional rivals, the Falcons. They ruthlessly trolled Atlanta after they installed a new express elevator at the Superdome. Check out their hilarious online assault below.
They released a graphic that said the elevator travels 28.3 times faster than before. This was unbelievably petty because the Falcons blew the same scoreline in Super Bowl LI. The Saints didn’t even play in that game but they were happy to remind their foes about it (The Spun).
Doug Pederson lost his job after pulling off one of the most shameless troll jobs in the history of the world. The Eagles played Washington in the final game of the season. They knew that a Washington victory would seal the division title for the franchise. However, the Giants were also in contention for the NFC East title.
If Philly beat Washington and the Giants won, then they’d proceed to the postseason. But they withdrew quarterback Jalen Hurts and effectively tanked the game. This infuriated the Giants who finished with a 6-10 record. They didn’t have a case but that didn’t stop them from complaining (via USA Today Sports).
