5. The New York Yankees

Position, Team: New York Yankees
Years: Late '90s-present
Having the highest payroll in baseball every year since 1999 and buying, uh, we mean "winning" a few championships in the process is naturally going to make opposing fans a wee bit angry. Top that off with the fact that their fans feel entitled to a championship every year and anything less calls for splurging in the offseason along with firings then you have an idea of why the Yankees are one of the most hated teams in sports history. Evil Empire, indeed.
