Reader disturbed by poll question

To the Editor:

I find it disturbing at such a divisive time in our country that the Northwoods River News decided to do an online reader poll like this! A poll question with this negative connotation: "Which traditional rival of a Wisconsin sports team do you dislike the most?"

The choices were:

• Minnesota Vikings

• Chicago Bears

• Ohio State Buckeyes

• Michigan Wolverines

• Chicago Cubs

• St Louis Cardinals

• Chicago Bulls

• I'm not a sports fan.

Why do we need to "dislike" a sports rival? This is not good sportsmanship and I am truly bothered by this! Anyone else?
