Pretty common up here. Most common reason I find for Dallas fans that have lived in NoVa their whole lives is "my family are Redskins fans, and I didn't want to be a part of that so I picked their biggest rival."

Also you guys can shit on fans that grew up outside the regional area, or became attracted to the team because they were good at the time, but I'm 99% skinsfaninok is one or the other. I don't begrudge people for what team they picked as long as they stick with the team. If you're a Dallas fan up until last week and now you're a fan of a new team you can go kick rocks though. It's why I shit on guys like 5sb's3rings when they say they're gonna go root for Philly because our team is a dumpster fire.

Re: NFL conference championship weekend

Chris Thompson on meeting AD

Funny story. When AP was on his visit here I introduced myself to him and assumed he knew who I was based off how well I had played the previous season. As we were talking he said, ďyou play cornerback?Ē My heart dropped. 😂😂😂

TL;DR: Insurance companies don't want to do business with the NFL (and even leagues as small as Pop Warner) as they are scared about losing money, so if/when the NFL dies it will be because nobody wants to provide insurance for NFL players.

This is a serious issue. I coach Pop Warner with USA Football and they have been talking about this for a couple years.

Ha crazy man, I grew up in South Mississippi , moved to Norman Ok at 14 years old and I'm now in NY so been all over bro. So When people say "you cant be a fan unless u live there" I hate that. Been a skins fan since I was 5 years old (32 now). I have been to DC to see my skins but that has only been once, the rest were road games.

What are you asking? What do we want to see, or what we're picking as the likely?

I feel spoiled this year because I'd really take any of the potential matchups.

Brees vs Brady? Good guy vs bad guy, each at the tail end of their careers so this might be the last best shot.

Rams vs Patriots? Young upstart coach who I love vs the evil empire of Belichick who I can't stand.

Brees vs Mahomes? Matchup of the two most deserving of MVP votes, old guard pocket passer vs the Ferrari.

Rams vs Chiefs, maybe the least compelling matchup to me. But I'd still like to see which offense stacks up better, Andy's or Sean's.

I hate the Patriots but I almost want them to beat the Chiefs and get to the SB because I'd like to have a villain in the SB to root against. Still, I don't think I can be disappointed, no matter how it shakes out.

I'll take Saints vs Pats as the most compelling. I'd love to see Brees and Brady go head to head.

ha, yeah this is a good point. I was telling our contractors yesterday, Im still pissed off how Atlanta couldn't close them out several years ago.

I think with me, Andy Reid is probably the best coach out there without a SB...want the fat man to pull it out this year.

Re: NFL conference championship weekend

All the talk is Brady , Mahomes and Brees rightfully so.. But Goff deserves props too.

32 Tds 12 Ints.

That's a pretty damn good year.
