So I wrote a hub about a football team and the reasons they wouldn't win the league. Of course they then went and won the league, and my article got featured on that team's supporters website, so of course I got a load of comments saying how stupid I was and everything, and I'm guessing a lot of downvotes. Will this affect how respected my articles are by google and how high in the rankings they are etc..?
Google looks at traffic so your ranking may actually increase. Besides your ego being bruised nothing much will likely happen. However, your reputation as a writer may suffer depending on your chosen topics....
I would not be surprised that your article or mention will come up again, when this team are on a losing streak. Always best to roll with the punches and just say, well, maybe you got the wrong year link juice is always good, so, no, don't think it would affect you at all. Good job!
Down votes don't effect Google, so I don't really think they matter.

An editor reviewed this particular hub and decided that due to the fact that it has been extensively covered they could not get it on Toughnickel. To my surprise I found it doing well on the main site - HubPages.
