and to add...I dont know if anyone here watches "Entourage" on HBO but a character in that show "Turtle" saw Tom Brady out in public and cold dissed him while everyone else was like "Whoa do you know who that is"? Turtle said he was a die hard Giants fan so Brady was a b*tch to him no matter what. I thought that was good. That's what I would say if I met him too. I remember seeing Bill Cowher at the Canes game this year and was like...pssst whatever-dumb Steelers coach-hahaha
You must not have watched the rest of that episode.  By the end he was asking Brady what wine to bring to his house and what Gisele liked as a gift.

Re: Fairweather Fakers

You guys sound like a bunch of traitors/fairweather fans.  If you were fans once you will always be fans unless something distasteful happens then I can understand.  I mean if you live in Eastern Carolina and Raleigh gets a team you gonna all of a sudden hate the Panthers?????  H*ll no!  I mean you can root for one over the other, but that does not mean you have to hate the Panthers now.  I am a huge hometown type of guy, but even if the NFL came to Chapel Hill itself I would still watch and probably root for the Panthers maybe not over the new Chapel Hill team but I would still follow them.

Re: Fairweather Fakers

I was a Giants fan until the preseason of 95. In 94 I pulled for the Panthers but was raised on the G men. The Panthers played the Giants in preseason and before that game I realized that I had to make a choice. Half way through the Game I found myself pulling for the Panthers and have never looked back, Even during the 1 - 15 season, I never thought about switching back. I've only pulled for the Giants once since then and that was against
the Pats and of course so did 99% of America. If you want to pull for another team fine with me but, at least make it a team in the opposite conference. I'm not going to judge if anyone is a "REAL" fan because, deep down ,that person allready knows.

Yes actually I've seen every minute of every episode-I love that show. He had to come around because it is after all just a show but he was pretty typical I think of most Giant fans and that's the way I am. Screw every other team and their qb-I hate em all!!!!!

Re: Fairweather Fakers

Just because you root for more than one team, doesn't make you a fake fan.

How can the Panthers be the only team I root for? They didn't exist when I started to watch football.

Growing up, my father (born near Philadelphia)was and still is an Eagles fan.
My mother (Hating the Bucs, even though they already sucked)LOVED the way the 49ers would go in and tear them apart.She slowly but surely became what she is today: A 49ers fan.

It's only natural that I would take a liking to these teams. When the Panthers came along I figured it was time to pick my own team. I chose the Panthers over the Jaguars(Very happy with my decision).

I can safely say that I do not pull for these teams evenly though. The Panthers are raking in about 80-85% of that one.

The wierd thing: I live in Florida( I think I'm the only Panthers fan down here)The local/hometown team has always been the Bucs... I couldn't ever like them if I tried. Especially now.

My point though, you can't question somebody else's fanhood if they like another team as well, because you probably have no idea why they are fans to begin with...well, unless it's the Patriots. You can continue to bash those people.

Don't worry, you weren't alone.  I was in St. Pete for a few months earlier this year for work and I'll be back down there next summer, so don't feel alone.  I felt alone when I was there, and everyday on the way home from work, I'd drive by a butt pirates fan shop and I'd want to burn it down.

Also, I think you can throw cowgirls fans on the list of fans to bash.
