    I have never been able to get the amount of love that the "baby blanket blue" uniforms get. Baby blue on white? That's supposed to look good? They look like they're getting all snuggled up for naptime, not getting ready for a football game. That uniform just screams "push me down and take my lunch money because I'm a giant pussy" to me.

    I pretty much agree. I always have had a soft spot for the Lions because I liked Barry Sanders and Chris Spielman. After they left, I still kinda like em, but don't follow them much. My wife is from Michigan, so now I have another reason to kinda root for them, although she doesn't root for them. Cincy is also an underdog I root for when nothing else is on the line.

    I've also always liked teams with great defenses. For this reason, I respected the Steelers (until SB XL), and the Ravens, and I always dug how the Bears have a good defense and a blue collar type of team atmosphere. I never disliked the Niners until very recently, we weren't rivals and they sucked, now it's getting good and juicy. I hate the Cowboys with a passion. I also dislike the Patriots until recently (now that they're not winning everything, I respect the hell out of Brady), can't stand the Stealers, and I'm getting tired of the Colts with all the Luck Love. I really liked the Colts with Manning, as I respected the player. Now that he's in Denver, it's harder because I've grown up disliking the Donkeys as a divisional rival.

    Most other teams I'm pretty much ambivalent.

  • Dad is from Wisconsin and we rooted for the Packers and Vikings when they were on. Always liked the Bears as well. Loved the Steelers from their run in the 70s when I was real young - Mean Joe Coke commercial and championships... I still feel odd hating them now based off the one game, especially after all those years.

    Always "hated" the Cowboys, Broncos, Raiders and then the 49ers in the late 80s. Was the first time I ever witnessed big time bandwagoning, where everyone was suddenly walking around town with Niner hats on - in Seattle.

    Today, I just love watching football. Any game will do and I'll generally just start cheering for whatever team is losing (unless on hated list.)

  • My second favorite team is every other team in the Squeelers division.

    Though I have a soft spot for long-time struggling teams like the Browns and the Bills. Happy to see the Bengals doing well.
    49ers webzone: Win or lose, i hope you injure Sherman. Like a serious career ending injury. I don't want him to get paid.
    49ers webzone: noise should not be the overwhelming reason a team is favored. they need to spray noise-damping foam onto the ceiling of that place.

  • Believe it or not, your humble NET creator was a Vikings fan before a Seahawks fan.

    In my defense, this was before there ever was a Seahawks team. I always loved the purple and Nike-looking logo on the helmets. My first NFL jersey ever was an Ahmad Rashad jersey.

    I loved that jersey. Then one day, I saw this new team with their cool looking bird on the side of their helmet...Blue, green, silver...I was hooked. When I found out they were MY home team??

    Hooked ever sense.

  • I liked the Vikings when Fran played and the Purple People Eaters were dominant, Chuck Foreman, Sammy White, Ahmad Rashad who was Seahawk Property but never played a down and we got Carl Eller I beleive in a deal for.

    Also was a big fan of the Raiders when Madden was coaching, any team with that much swagger that backed it up and still won regardless of penalties was something you had to watch. Talk about intimidating. Sadly the No Fun League made them mythical beast forever talked about and never again to be seen.

    These days it's hard with teams not keeping players and coaches for very long, team identity changes like underware almost every season you see revamps of almost a dozen coaches now.

    It would have to be a AFC team though, can't support a team in the NFC that could interfere with the Seahawks. Probably start off with the Raiders, being a old favorite and them still trying to figure out who and what they are post Al Davis it could be interesting.

  • I liked the Bucs back in the creamsicle days to have a pennant, but never anything serious. Same deal with the Chargers. But the Seahawks were always number one. Actually I liked the Chargers more when I went to see them take down the Stealers last season. Loved the game, the Stealers really looked bad in that one, and I kept egging on some drunk guy who was loudly and repeatedly referring to Big Dumb as a sex offender.
