    Not sure if this has been asked yet.... where do you live? What team's game is on TV every Sunday?

    That is likely the team you would most easily be able to relate with as they are the team you see most often

    pfft. Its the internet age, locations are over rated thanks to NFL Sunday ticket, live streams, torrents, etc.



    But fine, i have this settled for you Hircine:

    Become a Bears fan because i guarantee you won't find a better NFL Team fans message board. Boom. Done.

    And i can understand where youre coming from. I love College Football, but i do not have a "team" to call my own, so i don't have one to root for week in and week out (which is a bigger deal in CFB), so i usually just end up cheering for the underdogs. Or any team thats not Alabama. (hate Nick Saban).

    Find a reason to like a team and stick to it, I like the bears because as a kid I liked watching Walter Payton play. I am a cubs fan and my team sucks but they have their good years. I am blackhawks fan and I can say my team was good and had some very bad year. The former owner had to die and the current owner turned this team around. Either way I enjoy watching the bears and blackhawks.

    hmm It is a hard choice I think....I am up here in Toronto Canada and unfortunately the Bills are the big team for geographical location. But for myself? I gotta admit I was a bandwagon jumper back in 85....hell I didnt even know the difference between the CFL and the NFL.....Almost 30 years later( Wow I am getting up there) and alot of heartache, I am proud to be a BEARS fan!!!!!!!!

    and I do plan on getting my sorry arse down to the Windy City and see a game on the beloved Sacred ground of Football and shed a tear for the Bears, The greatest in past ,present and FUTURE!!!!!!
    NOW BRING ON THE SUPER BOWL.....WE OWE MANNING A BEATING!!!!!!!

    I live near Los Angeles. We don't have a football team. So I'd have to root for one of the other California teams, and I don't like any of them.

    I don't hate myself enough to be a raiders fan, I already left the chargers, and I'm not really feeling the 49ers. It's weird. I don't even like any California hockey or basketball team except maybe the ducks. But I'm not even a fan, I just kinda keep a ear out of how they do.

    Chicago seems like such a great sports city. You got the bears, the black hawks, the white sox and cubs, and you got the bulls. Maybe I don't like that there's so many choices in California? Don't know.
