Thanks for the ping...now, in answer to the question: Was there anyone King John did not piss off?

I don't think he pissed off his father. Nevertheless, his father probably realized that he was incompetent and purposefully named him "Lackland" and didn't give him anything. Unfortunately, Henry the Young King turned against his father and then died just as his Henry II tried to reconcile. Richard I (Cœur de Lion) was more interested in the Crusades and never had children, so John wound up with the crown.
