Pat Boone once acknowledged, "I've been extremely popular, but there's just something about me that seems to make some people want to throw up." Peyton Manning could say almost the exact same thing, and he knows it. The commercial simply takes advantage of that fact.
I interpreted the commercial as fans of opposing teams don't like him because he's a good football player and not because they hate him personally.
