    May I ask how this happened? There's probably a logical explanation but I just hate bandwagon fans (I almost became a Knicks fan a couple months ago whenthe Lebron rumors started up, got out of it [​IMG][​IMG])..so basically I'm just wondering how those of you that have teams from NYand CA in your sig came to be like that. I don't understand how some of you can be fans of teams way on different ends of the country, but like I saidthere's probably a good reason for it. I keep seeing signatures like these:

    MLB: Yankees- Grew up watching them and I live in NJ.

    NBA: Pacers- I loved Jordan as a kid, but IDK, I was a HUGE Reggie Miller fan.

    NFL: My first NFL game I ever watched (I actually went to) was watching Chris Carter and Randy Moss. Moss became my fav. NFL'er (no JRAIN) until he left.

    always and forever a Warriors fan no matter how crappy they're managed.
    I like the Giants but I find myself following the Mets (Jose Reyes fan) and Angels more.
    49ers fan but also a Panthers (Steve Smitttttty [​IMG]) fan
    Dont know much bout hockey but Sharks are exciting to watch when theres nothing else on TV

    for some Georgia teams like the Dawgs, Falcons, and Hawks I like them cause of the state and the city of Atlanta in general, the rap music from ATL, and red isone of my fave colors. Hawks - I like Joe Johnson; Falcons - I liked them since Mike Vick came to the league; and UGA - well Gunna can answer this for me[​IMG][​IMG]

    Give me a pass though......everyone likes some teams for weird reasons anyway. [​IMG]

    the only non-L.A. professional team I am a fan of is the New England Patriots.
    And it's because of the 1993 NFL draft. Drew Bledsoe was my favorite college player at the time when he was at WSU. I was never really a Rams or a Raidersfan, so I thought, what the hell? Let's cheer for a 2-14 team..
    other than that...
    MLB-Dodgers
    NHL-Kings
    NBA-Clips
    and there is Notre Dame, but that's been since I was born...

    I'm a Ram fan but I'm from SoCal. My Dad was a Ram fan since their LA days, so he raised me as a fan. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Ask ERACISM/Bandwagon4life, he became a Knicks fan after the 06 playoffs. Then for some strange reason he lost the Bring Kobe to the Knicks sig and is a Lakerfan again. [​IMG]

    Do I sound mad or something? If you have a logical reason for being a fan of that team then great, all the power to you. If you become a fan of ateam because they're having success at a certain point of time (bandwagon fan), then yes I've lost all respect for you as a sports fan.

    Fixed (for me).

    Real simple...I moved from NY to MA a # of years ago and I got into football after I was here.

    This was when Bledsoe was still QB and Brady was still in Michigan so...yeah. [​IMG]

    I get enough !$@@ from my cousins back when I go back home to NY. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Had to turn my cell off after SB 42...[​IMG][​IMG]

    i don't mind people who root for teams around the country randomly, like let's say...they root for the Reds, Vikings, and Warriors. However, if allthose random teams are conveniently all the best teams out there, then....I've definitely put you in the frontrunner category[​IMG].

    I think people are fans of different teams mainly because they like certain players on them

    Well when you dont have a team close to you seem to gravitate towards teams with players you like

    Knicks

    Secondary teams
    Sharks- I like watching them because they play late on the west coast
    Cowboys- they are jsut my other football team
    Lakers- Kobe is my favorite NBA player
    Manchester United- Cristiano Ronaldo is an animal

    I absolutely hate the Penguins but I watch them ALOT because my favorite player in sports is Evgeni Malkin.
