But some, absolutely.
I think it's quite bitter on the blue side, but on the red side it's less so because such a large % of their fanbase isn't from the Munich area but there are probably old timers and locals on the Bayern side who 100% hate 60 as well.

If you are a Bayern fan from Ingolstadt, Ulm, Kassel or god knows where, you probably don't care too much about a lower-tier team that hasn't threatened Bayern in the last 40 years.
