See what we mean by checking out our meme-illustrated countdown of the nice and the nasty.

Number 4: Nice Arguably the best Football team in the NFL. Playing in Denver, CO. The only team that is always (since the early 70's) a contender. Team colors are "Navy Blue" and "Orange Crush."

"Did you watch the Broncos ass-slapping the Raiders yesterday?"

Number 4: Nasty Dumbass team who steal players, claim them as them being at the height of the game on their team, but sadly can never make it to the Super Bowl. Losing to the Raiders has become a must for this team.

Billy-Bo: Dude, did you see the 2004 Raiders @ Broncos game?

Bubba-Bob: Yeah...Broncos got school didn't they?

Jake Plummer: Yeah...we sure do suck.
