Most fans I know personally don't like Bonds for one reason or another. Many never have because of his aloofness, rudeness, cockiness or what have you. Pretty much all of them dislike him because he owns two of the most recognized records in profession sports.
What if (and I saw this mentiioned on another site but can't remember where)...
20 of his HRs in 2001 were doubles? As it ends up, he wouldn't hold the single season record for HRs (he'd have 53) nor the career mark (he'd have 742 - 13 shy of Aaron's record).
I wonder how many people would accept him a bit more had he not broken both records. I myself don't count because I actually like Bonds and found him caught up in a circumstance of egomania that tarnished (to say the least) of what would otherwise have been an easy HOF career.
But I asked a few of my friends last night and for the most part they changed from "hating the player" to simply "ehhhh still wouldn't like him much". I know baseball fans are tied to these records and that's part of the romance of the game. But if you really dislike Bonds (I don't like using the word hate because it sounds too personal), would you feel less animosity?
