I'm a Viking fan also and haven't turned on them, I may swear at the tv and say they suck but I will still always watch them, followed them thru a lot of bad bad years. I'm a 49'ers fan also and liked them thru the good and bad

You shouldn't argue with your boyfriend. You should hold his hand during these trying times. Kiss and make up.

I hope we have at least 2 or 3 years of non-winning seasons, that'll clear the bandwagon fans out. They sure all came out of the woodwork when we went 15-1 didn't they?

No. Been a Cowboys fan since '73. Lots of good years, and tons of bad ones.

Yeah thats the point, you shouldn't be 0-4, we are semi-bad team. So this means your worse off.

This sounds pretty lame...us debating who the better 0-4 team is, but at least the Rams have potential to win a game....I don't know if I can say that about the Vikings.

I'll watch the Falcons regardless of their record...of course I am more of a baseball fan. I have been a Braves fan since I first got interested in baseball at the age of 4...so let's see, since 1981. They sucked for many a years before they got good. The 1991 World Series was still the most exciting time...

I've been a Bucs fan since about 1981 when they couldn't buy a win. I remember going to game after game and rooting for them even though I always knew their chances of actually pulling out a win against ANYBODY were slim. Now that they are contenders, I always feel like I have to explain myself since the bandwagon has become so crowded with newbie fans. That's okay though. We deserve more fans.

My wife, also, has been a Cowboys fan for years, and she still sticks with them and says she always will. She screams and yells at them, but then that's what true fans do when times are rough.

No real fan would ever give up on their team, despite their record. However, the Vikings? All I can say is, four missed TD passes by the reciever they bribed the legal system for. Who would want to root for that?

How many times do I have to tell you? I can NEVER turn on the Vikings. Never. I am just VERY dissapointed that they are doing so bad. I will always be a fan, but I'll tell you how shi--y they are playing. And I never said I wasn't a fan anymore, I guess I will like them more if they win a game. That's all.

Fair weather fans suck. I've followed the Nets for 7 years before they made the playoffs. Next year they will win the championship or a game or something. One or the other

I'm a Golden State Warrior fan and man have we sucked for many many years now. Yet I still attend a game here and there and will watch them when they are on tv.

Nope. I'm a Redskins fan and Baltimore Orioles fan. I love those teams but some times it's just embarrassing to be a fan of theirs but I still root for them.

Sure ha...


Saying "I am a non-existant fan" sounds like.... umm... your not a fan!

Oh man. I feel sorry for you. I live in San Jose so I have to put up with hearing about GS all the time.

Oh you're a Rams fan? And you live in San Jose? OK time for a change! Flip a coin to decide whether you should be a Patriots fan or a Philadelphia fan.



PS. Who just lost to the Cowboys and couldn't score more than 10 points?

Umm, what the hell are you talking about?

I'm not a bandwagoner. I've only lived in San Jose for a little over 2 years...so am I automatically supposed to like Golden State just because they're the closest NBA team?
