Cardinals: They Love to Hate

I wanted to make this a fan post because I want to get your thoughts on the Cardinals obsession with the 49ers. Darnell Dockett seems to crave the 49ers, since our players names are constantly in his mouth. Now Weanie Wells chimes in with this:

"I think we can ignore them to a certain extent," Wells said of the predictions, "but to be quite honest, I hate the 49ers."

(I'm sure BAM BAM will have something to say about this come time to lay the hammer on Wells)

So what's the deal, Niner Empire? Why are these clowns so obsessed with our team? I know Disease has been tweeting from time to time, but Dockett has certainly been the one to stir things up, usually while talking up Adrian Wilson in the process. He's even gotten into it with some fans, one of which actually confronted DD at a Casino in Vegas:

My thinking is that they are bitter about getting swept like pile of lint last year and they know we're the team to beat. For some reason they can't just shut up and focus on their own team, they have to obsess over the best in the West. That be us. Personally I love this. It adds so much more dimension to the rivalry and in my mind cements the Cardinals as the villains. Obviously Card fans will feel otherwise, but the reality is that their players are the classless ones who have an unhealthy obsession with the 49ers (see the tweets from DD about Coffee). Maybe they are just frustrated that they can't play here? Maybe they know the collapse of their team is imminent and they are already venting about it? Your thoughts?
