You can not like two teams in the same sport, period. You CAN NOT hedge your bets. It doesn't matter what Conference or Division they're in, you have to pick one. This sports bigamy has to stop.

Side Note: I get this question alot "Can I still like other players"? Yes you can. For example, as a fan of The Ohio State University Anthony Schliegel was my favorite player.

Can I follow his career as a Jet? Absolutely.
Can I become a Jets fan? Absolutely not
Can I buy his jersey? Absolutely not

I used to like the Bucs, until the division realignment that is.

My Favorite teams
NCCA-USC
MLB-LA Dodgers
NBA- LA Lakers
NFL- DENVER Broncos

Never been a fan of either San Diego or Oakland, and I fell in love with Denver during the Elway, Davis days. If LA had a team when I began following NFL Football I most likely wouldn't be a Broncos fan.

I don't really "root" for other teams, but when two other ones are playing, and my team isn't one of them, I have certain ones that I favor over others.

And...after looking at it, that sentence looks kinda weird, lol. I had trouble putting my thoughts into words

Well the reason is you come off as one of those " enlighted free thinker" or liberal people if i may say so... and those are usually the people who like soccer because it's nonconformist and nonamerican tolike soccer steriotypically speaking... I know i'm kinda off on a tangent and making assumptions.

It's not that there division rivals, it's for the mere fact that there redskins...F*** the redskins. Plus there a racially insensitive franchise. If they were the blackskins people would be up in arms.

I am a dual teamship guy: Eagles and Texans.

Since one is in the NFC and one is in the AFC there isn't much crossing over. It is a sin to consider yourself a fan of two teams in the same division. I also like the Ravens but when they play the Texans or Eagles I root against them. There's no problem with liking another team as long as it isn't a rival or in the same division.

It should be illegal to rock the solo team loyalty. I'm also opposed to dual city loyalty, mainly because if I can tolerate the Cardinals sucking forever, than any fan can tolerate their team going through a slump.

He's no a hypocrite because everyone should be a Twins and Indians fan. They represent all that is good about baseball and all that fights the evil empires of New York, Boston, Chicago, LA, etc.

I'm a fan of all small market teams in baseball against all big market teams.

I feel exactly how Ward does. You can't be a "die hard vikings fan" then turn into a fan of a rival team.

You are allowed to like one team. If you move you might have a slight chance to switch teams...I mean you can't live in WI and be a Vikings fan...so I would view that as acceptable. It's also ok to like a player from another team...but thats about it.

I like what 51 said: you have a "primary team" and then secondary teams, preferrably in another conference, and definitely not in your division.

My primary team is the Jaguars. I also like the Redskins because of my dad, and the Bucs because of some other family members.

I don't see how switching favourite teams is that big of a deal. I would never consider it, but for a casual fan of the game, I see little problem.

Your right. Everyone should be a Twins and Indians fan. Whats not to like about them?( well besides the whole metrodome thing, but they will be out of there in a couple seasons now) Two very classy organizations.

This also brings up another on of my pet peeves. People who like Boston. I realize that there are many people who actually like Boston for valid reasons. However, some people like them as if they're the opposite of the yankees. The Red socks are just about the same damn thing. The Yankess and the Redsox spend money like it's water. Evil empires.

Very true. Since moving to Minnesota I have become a much bigger Packer nut because of all the Viking idiots here. Atleased when I wake up in the morning I can look off my deck across Lake superior and see the motherland.

by the way Bearsfan living in the Twin cities is hardly living in the upper midwest once you think about it. It's like your in a different country when you go there from the rest of the upper midwest.

Well, since I grew up/live in Canada, I always liked the Falcons and the Jets.

If they play, I always cheer for the Jets, but I follow the Falcons fairly closely, and will watch them whenever I can (assuming a Jets game isn't on).
