Re: Do you have a "Scab Team"?

I've always had 2nd and 3rd favorite teams (Saints and Bengals (apparently I'm a masochist)). The Bengals used to be #2, but after living in New Orleans for a brief period and having my fiancee as a Saints fan, I'm pulling hard for them now. Certainly not more so than the Skins, but definitely rooting for them.

No one ever takes the number 1 spot, not even for a season, but I've always rooted for those teams when they were not playing the Skins.

Outside of football, I'm an O's and Hornets fan with the Wizards making a comeback. I'm a strange kind of basketball fan, I follow players more than teams excluding the two I listed. So, I like to watch plenty of teams because of players I like, but I root for the Wizards and Hornets regardless (unless the Hornets let CP3 go, then I'm off that).

I'm actually a Pats fan, mainly cause I play in a 4 player keeper league and have had Brady for 5 years.... so I'm always rooting for Brady. But I like some of their other players and they're very well coached.

That's too bad but I feel your pain. I'm not at the end of the rope but Snyder and Cerrato are pushing me there. The lack of direction and structure is very frustrating.

I'd like to see the Colts and Saints in the SB. Two of my favorite QBs in Manning and Brees.

I'm also having fun watching the Vikings this year with Favre. They have such a solid all around team.


I did not think that at the age of 40 that he would be able play the way he is with no off season. Farve is just playing really well, still has a gun, not throwing stupid passes, looking guys off, using a little mobility...he's just balling. The guy is a true freak of nature. And Percy Harvin is a total beast.

Thanks for the correction I should of looked it up instead of trying to go buy memory. Still an exciting finish.

Re: Do you have a "Scab Team"?

No other favorite NFL team for me. I do have individual favorite players from other teams that I like to watch, but not favorite teams. Only the Redskins. They can be 0-16 and I'd still be a Redskins fan.

Re: Do you have a "Scab Team"?

There have been a lot of good things mentioned that really come into play on this. I think what it comes down to, for me, is the emotional attachment I have to the team... well over 30 years. On the flip side though, it really is difficult to care for a team in which it appears that the owner has no care for, outside of monitary gain. If Snyder did care, he would do something about it. But then, I think about how successful of a business man he is, that he must know something I don't. Clearly he doesn't know how to run a football organization, but you would think he knows something about operations, and if your key man running the operation isn't producing results, you take the accountability back to him. I just can't imagine him being so blind.

Yes, I will never give up on our Burgandy and Gold, they will always be number one in my heart. Hell, I am even wearing my gear out publicly, if anything, it is a great conversation starter.

I just can't seem to like any other teams but ones I was brought up on. (O's, Skins, Bullets/Wiz, Caps),

I've tried to like the Ravens especially since they're practically local, but everytime I watch them, I find myself hoping that they'll lose.

EDIT: Okay.. I do like the Red Sox. But other than that nobody else.

Ditto! Even though I have quite a few of them on my fantasy team.

I know what you're saying. I watched the Ravens beat up on the Broncos and its not the same. When the Skins beat someone like the Giants, Eagles or Cowboys, I'm hyped up for a week. I don't know if those days will ever return. Like I said, I'm hanging by a thread, Danny can reel me in by taking action in right direction. This organization must change. It's the laughing stock of the league. They have past the Raiders, Lions and Browns.
