Enemy number one?

The Providence Journal cites a recent Sports Illustrated poll of New York fans that counts Pedro Martinez as the "Biggest Enemy of the State" of New York. Apparently he earned 21% of the vote. The story goes on to say that George Steinbrenner was second with 19% of the vote and Bill Parcells was third with 8%.

Unsurprisingly, the Red Sox were the most hated New York opponent (43%) followed by the Miami Dolphins (22%). Everything seems plausible except for the Dolphins. Who hates the Dolphins in New York and why?
