    Teams you like and teams you don't like - for no real rational reason

    I am not talking about obvious, rational reasons for liking or hating a team (i.e. Green Bay, because they are a rival). I am talking about really subjective reasons, like, you like a player, or their uniform, etc.

    Here is my list:

    LIKES:
    - Rams - just hate the way the Pats "did" them in the Show (maybe cheated)
    - Niners - kind of hope they get back up on their feet
    - Bills - they lost 4 super bowls, so I can identify. Small market team
    - Browns - again, hate what their owner did to that team by moving them to Baltimore. Like the way they sued and got their colors back and then their team back
    - Raiders - ok, it is a guilty pleasure. I think it goes back to Gannon being a Vike, and having married a woman he met at the Vikings HQ.
    - KC- Great fans. Knowledgeable and good, without being jerks.
    - Steelers - like the fans, like Roethlisberger. Cool uni.

    DISLIKES:
    - Cowboys - "America's Team"
    :
    - Texans - marketed themselves as a "bull" symbol because they though that fans in Mexico liked bulls and thus would follow them (I heard that one, not sure if it is true)
    - Cardinals - that stupid "angry bird" on their helmet
    - Broncos - hate them for "doing" us about 4 years ago, so that we didn't make the playoffs. Hate their uniforms
    - Eagles - they had a prison built into their old stadium, and a judge sat in there during games and would snap-judge the fans the cops brought in, who had been disorderly.
    - Patriots - "Cheatriots".
    - Redskins - rich yuppie owner who churns the roster every year. That 750-play playbook. The fans dressed as pigs, etc. The fact that every congressman and politician likes them. Their fan base is corrupt politicians, bureaucrats, and lawyers.
    - Bengals - crappy uniform, bad character players.

    Re: Teams you like and teams you don't like - for no real rational reason

    Ain't nobody but the Vikings Baby!!!!!


    Broncos are my, "AFC team," but no Vikings!!
    I've just been here too long, hanging with the few true Broncos fans to not follow them too.
    Guess it started in that superbowl vs. Green Bay, with that intense, you can't stop me look Elway had in his eyes.

    I like defense and old school run first teams...so, even back in the 70s, I like PIT and OAK.
    Just cuz they played mean defense.
    PITs always kind of had a rep for trick plays too.

    JAX and TEN remind me of the Vikes, and I would like to see somebody unseat the Colts in that division.

    I hate the Packers and Bears, but feel kind of sorry for the Lions.
    Although, I will give respect to Favre.

    I am SO over the Patsies!!

    The Cowboys can never be forgiven for the Herschal Walker trade!
    They stole those superbowls from us!!!

    And, then there is the Giants.
    I wanted to root for both teams to lose in this year's superbowl, but had to go against 18-0.
    But, the Giants are probably my most hated team...probably due to that 41-0 championship whipping.
    No matter how many times we whip them, I'll always want to whip them again.
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

    Hey, the new fans of the Texans had their team stolen too!
    The new fans of the Ravens did too (Colts).

    Rams and Oakland left behind fan bases too! (Cleveland and LA for the Rams, Oakland and LA for the Raiders).


    Where is the consistency?
