    What if there were no Minnesota Vikings?

    What if this team was never brought into existence? Which team would you follow? Would you still watch football as much? I'm finding more and more that I don't sit down and watch football regardless who's playing anymore.. well there's a few teams I might watch besides the Vikings but other than that it ain't the same.

    Re: What if there were no Minnesota Vikings?

    Well knowing where i grew up North Dakota and Minnesota. Hypothetically based on geography it would either be Denver or I'm afriad to say Green bay. I love football to much not to have found some team to root for.

    idk, i really can't see myself liking any team except for the vikings. If the vikings dont play, then i lose interest.

    Re: What if there were no Minnesota Vikings?

    My dad tried to raise me as either a Bengals or Bears fan. I fought my through all the adversity and became a Vikings fan in 1998. So if not for the Vikings I think I'd be a Bengals fan probably but I'm not going to imagine myself as one.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.

    I use to be a huge NHL fan. Grew up going the the MN Fighting Saints games and the North Stars. The Saints folded and the Stars moved to Dallas. Haven't watch a game since.

    If the Vikings moved I would still be an NFL fan in general because I'm addictied to fantasy football. I currently follow a few other teams closely, but if I lost the lifeline..the MN Vikings, the NFL would be a much smaller part of my life. That's for sure.

    Re: What if there were no Minnesota Vikings?

    This has kinda been discussed awhile ago; you I will give you my 2 cents.

    I do not believe in "other favorite teams" at all; no way. I find that it would be a contrdiction to my love and faith for the Vikings if there was another team in my bed; so to speak.

    Put it like this, each fan can give out 100% "fandom"; how can the Vikes have 100% of your "fandom" if you like other teams? Even though you give the Vikes 99% of your "fandom", you are still giving another team 1%. I do not believe in second favorites as I stated earlier.

    I am not going to even going into any definitions of what I believe to be a true fan. That kind of talk was a cancer here earlier this year.

    As for the original question: I would not watch football until another team played in Minnesota and was given the name of the Vikings.

    Re: What if there were no Minnesota Vikings?

    When someone once asked me to name as many NFL teams as I could in 30 seconds, I responded with "There is only one team- The vikings" Now they did ask me to be serious so i named like 25 of them but thats beside the point.

    Dang, now I feel like a douche for my response but I didn't say I had another team I cheered for atleast. I just said the teams the rest of my family cheers for. I myself despise the Bears and Bengals as a Vikings fan. :grin:
