Something Joe Montana just said on Dan Patrick Show

Well duh, a lot of players who grew up in the 70's, and bloomed in the 80's (in the NFL) were either Steelers/Cowboys fans because those (two) teams were the "power elite" of the NFL.

I wouldn't take it any other way. -There's been a lot of players that have actually played for their favorite teams and they let their pride/emotions get the best of their careers/play.

This guy was Joe cool, and for everything he did for this franchise/the records he broke, fans should be kissing his feet. -So what if his favorite team is the Steelers, it's not like Joe is saying: "oh I'm gonna take my entire 49er career back with regret cause I didn't do it with the Steelers!" Get real.

-All these Steve Young generation fans are just so emotional about everything. I blame the school system's 'confidence' programs.

Among other things, Montana surprised me by saying that he was a Steelers fan and rooted for the Steelers WHILE he was playing for the 49ers. My thoughts were "damn, were you rooting for them when they stopped your undefeated season in 1984?" WOW. Surprising to me to say the least. How about you guys?

It's a little disappointing but I'm just glad when an NFL player roots for any NFL team. That just means he loves the sport and not just the money. That means a lot in today's NFL
that's it! Im burning my Joe Montana jersey!!!!
So he was a fan of his near-home Steelers; so what?

Understandable..But to root for a team your competing for a title with? Nah, I dont like that. A lot of guys say they were fans of certain teams growing up....but they dont root for them while competing for a championship with them

Did I miss something over the last 30 years? Since when did we EVER compete with the Squealers for a Super Bowl title?

This is how I look at it. 9ers/ NFC team. Squealers/AFC team. So it's kinda like being a fan of two teams. One you play for and the other you root for when your team is out of contention.

It's not like Joe said he was a Cowboys fan and still is, for cryin out loud. Much ado over nothin as far as I am concerned. When Joe left the 9ers I openly rooted for the Squaws in the AFC. Except against the Seachickens. Of course now Sheattle is in our division so I don't root for them at all. I wasn't even rooting for them when they went all the way. Oh that's right the Squealers got that nifty gift wrapped trophy as a late Xmas gift.

Hmmmm 6 degrees of separation at it's best.

Yup, the Squaws would be the Chiefs. lol

I'm thinking that I should pen a book detailing the derogatory nicknames of professional sports teams so that everyone knows without having to ask. lol

~Ceadder

PS submit nicknames to me if you wish. My absolute favorite derogatory nickname is the Phallus Towelboys.

this. This thread is the greatest example of the pussification of todays youth. We question our own heroes on their allegiances even after winning 4 superbowls? Get a life! Even if I got drafted by the rams, I'd always have a place for the niners except when I played them. Competition always beats being a fan. Me over the team I root for if I am playing. I don't see what's so hard to understand. This isn't Pete rose betting on baseball.

I don't care what team he's a fan of. Four freaking Superbowl rings! We need more such "fans" playing for us!
