    Player or Team?

    If your all-time favorite player from your favorite team left, would you follow the player or stay with the team?

    None

    Stay with the team. Players come and go. Teams do not (or SHOULD not).

    That doesn't mean that I can't respect or watch a player that has left. I still enjoy watching Moss as long as he isn't playing against the Vikings.

    TEAM.

    Players make a team more enjoyable to watch, but the team is what I follow. Here is the depth of my sickness, I had to stop playing FF because I thought it detracted from my Viking game day experience...........

    That is not to say that I dont follow stat lines of other players or teams, it just means that if I chose to follow MY TEAM and immerse myself in all things Viking related.

    I know its crazy but its how I roll.

    Team, totally.

    But I can see how it's different when you're a basketball fan. Your team is made up of just 5 real starters with some other rotational players. You can trade away half your team in one off-season. I can imagine that, if your two favorite players on a 5 player team get traded away, you could switch sport.

    But still, even in basketball, with my limited knowledge of the game, I'll stick with the T'Wolves, as bad as they may suck.

    Team, or I would have left with Moss.

    I follow players that I like away from the Vikings, but I will never root for another team.

    Team definitely. Although, it's ok to still root for players, as long as it's not against your team.

    I still like Randy Moss, Mewelde Moore, and a few others and enjoy seeing those guys be successful, as long as it's not against the Vikings.

    Re:Player or Team?

    Huh? It really depends. I mean if I was a real fan of the team or just a fan of the player.

    For example. When Jordan played, big Bulls fan, but was really just a Jordan/Pippen fan. Once the Bulls blew up in '98 and proceeded to absolutely suck I had no reason to really like them. LeBron fan, but feel he did Cleveland a little wrong here, so not following him to South Beach, stuck in no-NBA team limbo now.

    But as for the Minnesota Vikings, San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Blues (yes I am all over the place) ... all of these I am fans of the team first. I don't care who comes, who goes, I am pulling for that team.

    Hell, once players go, I don't really care about them all that much either. I mean, sure I wish Randy Moss well and want him to continue being great, but all in all I don't really care.
