Point being, there are teams you might pull for and hate more than others and thats the beauty of the sport. Im suppose to feel good that the Seahags won just cause Hasselbeck earned points for "my team". My loyalty is to the Niners, the only time I'll feel great about players and teams playing well is if it affects the Niners in a good way. I don't need Ronnie Brown on "my team" to root for the phins against the Patriots.
Seeing as how this is a football forum, I expect many of you to disagree with a brotha. But i just had to vent.
You do realize that no team is actually "your team" right? You can yell and cheer until you're blue in the face. It's not going to change the outcome. You not rooting for hasslebeck isn't going to change shizz either.
The only thing us fans have control over on Sundays is........ Who to start and who to bench in fantasy football.
So you can sit there and think you're some super fan because you don't play fantasy football. I'm going to sit here and have as much fun as I can on Sundays, controlling as much as I can. Which is "my team".
You'd also be surprised how many NFL players actually play FF. Just saying!
