im all for knowing the history of the team you follow but if youre claiming championships for seasons that you did not witness or were not even alive for, foh (not you specifically just in general). i dont think you were born in the 70s so for example the steelers have 2 superbowls you can claim, cowboys have 3, niners have 5, broncos have 2 etc.
This makes no sense. Franchises exist outside of individuals, it's ridiculous to say that fans can't celebrate a team's history simply because they weren't alive to watch them. If that were the case then why celebrate tradition at all? Why not completely transform a team's image and identity every decade or so to bring in new fans? It would make records and titles meaningless if they couldn't be cherished for generations to come.
tell me about that 1st raiders championship, those crutial wins and losses throughout that season, where were you week 1, week 12, how was the weather outside, did you watch games solo or with friends and family, did you see that 3rd string wr make that catch to keep a drive alive?, how did a key injury influence that season? you either lived it or didnt. if you did then as a fan claim that championship. if you didnt live it how can as a fan claim that when you were not 'there'.
