He's a Pirates fan in an attempt to mask his obvious bandwagoning. You got played.

I'll go with Patriots and Niners, even though my NFC picks haven't turned out very well this year.

I'm a Niners fan, so going with Niners of course.

Though I'd be fearful of the Patriots in the Super Bowl...haha

Most of the ESPN "experts" are going with a Giants-Pats SB rematch.

Great. That means the Giants are done this week.

I'm pulling for the Niners now. A: Because I was a fan of theirs as a kid, and B: I hate the Giants. Not for last week, but due to an obnoxious friend I used to have from NY.

The Niners are really the only team that I'm even interested in. I'd like to see a Harbaugh bowl, but I think it's unlikely the Ravens win.

49ers all the way.

I don't give a shit who wins the other game, but I will go w/ the Ravens.

Re: 2011 NFL Playoffs Thread -- Conference Championships -- 01/22/2012



I was born in Jersey, then moved to Stroudsburg, PA until about first grade. My relatives still reside in the tri-state area. Been a Steelers/Pirates/Penguins/Sixers fan my entire life through good and bad. Sorry to disappoint, but I haven't always lived in CA & I can't stand bandwagon fans.

I posted the Tebow pic on my Facebook page and on another forum, but held off on this one because of a few particular douchebags and a particular PM from one member.

Anyway, my picks:

NE
NY

Arpeggi's been on my ignore list for a while, but I'm sure his post had to do with Big Ben raping.

The entire universe is going with Pats/Giants. Hopefully the Niners prove them wrong again this weekend. I mean, they have won 14 games and are playing at home. So it's not absurd to pick them. But since the 11-7 Giants beat the Packers at Green Bay, it automatically means San Fran has no shot at winning.

You must not be including the gambling universe - where people put their money where their mouth is. Line hasn't moved much....most books have SF -2 now.

The entire media universe is spooging for a Giants-Patriots SB. I don't believe SF will be the pushover the media hopes they are. Keeping my fingers crossed for the Big Blue. I don't care who the AFC team is. Either way it would be a rematch.

I don't particularly care what happens from here on out, as the Steelers getting Tebow'd will not be topped as best 2011 playoff moment. I suppose I will be pulling for the Niners and Ravens though.

I was giving you the benefit of the doubt at first but given where you're from geographically you should have grown up an Eagles/Phillies/Flyers fan. You were way closer to there than you were Pittsburgh. And if you're originally from Jersey that further cements it.

I guess you are a bandwagon fan.

Yeah, because liking a team your whole life - through good years and bad - is the definition of a 'bandwagon fan'. Thanks for the geography lesson on where I'm from though, very helpful.
