Fairweather Fakers

Ok, tell me if ya'll have friends or co-workers that are like this CAUSE IT GETS ON MY DA*N NERVES. I work with several people who have multiple teams. This guy told me the Panthers are his second team! He said he is Redskins first then Panthers, then Philly. He all messed up. It begs to ask, Am I being too hard on folk by calling them LOSERS for having more than one team? I mean (embarrassed to say) I grew up a Pittsburgh fan since I was 5 but in 1993 I instantly dropped them and became the #1 Carolina Panthers fan!! I never looked back and I can't stand the Steelers or their fans. Can you actually have more than one team? I mean, I will pull for the underdog usually if we get knocked out but I ain't got no nother team fool! LOL

Re: Fairweather Fakers

I'd be a hypocrite if I didn't say that I do sort of the same thing also.  I have a soft spot for the 49ers in my heart, mostly because my parents are from the area and I grew up rooting for them until the Panthers came around and I began to bleed black and blue (I should see someone about that, that can't be healthy).

I think its okay to have one or two teams (ha, gotta cover my own ass), but when you start rattling off the entire NFC as 'your teams', then you got a problem.

Re: Fairweather Fakers

Well many Carolina fans have more than one team bc we never had a team so many of them had to root for someone if they liked football.  How could you ever be a fan and just drop them for another team?  If you were ever a fan you will always root for them somewhat.  I was a huge SF fan and they are my second team.  I don't follow them as closely as I do the Panthers but I still follow their camps and draft and what they are doing personnel wise and probably always will.

Re: Fairweather Fakers

Hey I'm there with ya man.  I think its different for someone to  root for a secondary team.  On Sunday I root for 16 Teams: the panthers, any team playing a division foe, and any AFC team playing an NFC team.  Ain't no way anyone can call themselves a true fan of a team and then equally root for another team in the same division.  I mean Skins then Eagles?!? Lats like being a Panthers fan and if they are not any good you root for the Falcons.

Re: Fairweather Fakers

nah I changed my mind.  Conference is cool, but you better not like anyone else from the South or the East.  My secondary team is SD beacuse I was born there, but I wanted the cats to kick their A** last year.  Also I don't really follow them to closely.

Re: Fairweather Fakers

Oh its easy to drop a team that you rooted for your whole life! Especially when Georgia moved the Lambs, er, Rams to St. Louis and gave us west coasters the finger! I dropped them like a hot potato and I officially adopted the Panthers. I didn't want to jump on a band wagon and the Panthers and Jags were new to the league. I'm an NFC fan! Nuff said!! GO PANTHERS!!!
