At the risk of sounding b++~@y, I think it has a lot to do with the fact PFS made it non-optional, and a lot of GM's have followed suit because it is a more balanced version of the class. However, that makes it a nerf, and many people vehemently hate nerfs to things they like.
For those serious about ''creativity,'' the unchained summoner made things a little more difficult and it can be annoying. Now one must invest feats/races/bonuses/magic items into to eidolon to make it fit a creative theme.
For everyone else that played the summoner for the roflstomp murder machine pouncing multi-armed monster, the optional class is even more hated because they can't make one with their eye closed at 2nd level any more.
I just vehemently hate the alignment restrictions.
The cut to evo points sort of sucks too, and I think they went just a wee bit too far with it (in conjunction with adjusted costs and level requirements), but I can get over that.
The alignment and outsider type restriction stuff makes me kitten-punching-angry.
