I suffer through life as a Lions fan. Thinking about switching teams since they are hopeless, but it is hard to go away from the home team.

I am confused as to the meaning of the "#1" behind your "miami". I do not remember Miami being in the Super Bowl last Jan. nor do I remember the Hurricanes being of any threat to any one.

Consider your home area bigger than what it is. In South Dakota, if you live east of the Missouri, you are a Vikings fan. You live west of the Missouri, a Broncos fan. Geographically, you could consider, Chicago, Cleveland, even [heaven forbid] Green Bay as a home team. Just keep the Tigers though, as they have always been my favorite for 50 years.

I've been a Falcons fan my whole life, even though they make some pretty stupid decisions. At least we won't have to worry about Vick anymore.

I dunno, I watch college more than pro's.

In Central NJ, you have three choices, Jets, Giants, or Eagles.

Can't stand football. No football player cares about the game, all they care about is the money. There is no love of the game.

I can't say I agree with you. Brett Favre, for one, seems to love the game. He gets as excited as a little kid when he's playing. I'm sure there are many others just like him.

Hey Polara - at least the Packers made one good decision! Sometimes he's about the only reason I keep watching our "beloved" team.

I'm also a closet Raider and Steeler fan.

I have considered Green Bay. It is only 100 miles away from where I live but it's a 9 hour drive or a long swim. Have also considered da Bears. I'm locked in on Tigers, Red Wings and Pistons since they have owners that care.

Yeah, but now you are stuck with piano playing Joey Harrington.

Perhaps they can sign Ron Mexico...I hear he is just as good.

My user name says it all. Looking forward to the opener with the Falcons tomorrow and I ain't no fair weather fan, baby. Haven't missed a game in memory.

you know, the day I upgraded to an HD box is the day my HD tv crapped out. Hopefully the warranty will work itself out by the time there's games of relevance on, even though I really don't enjoy organized sports particularly. The company is nice.
