I believe it may be a misunderstanding at this point. When using the word "hate" on a sports forum, I never intend it or take to to mean hating the person personally. Most of us don't know the players or managers personally, so I would not take it to mean someone hates these guys personally. I use the word "hate" on a sports forum to mean that you don't like the person as a manager or player or don't think very highly of them as a player or manager.
