    Re: Help me settle an argument

    What faninphx said. Your wife is a football fan and she wants to go to a game with you? Wow.

    When you go, just have a great time. Tell her she looks very striking in her Jaguars jersey. Never even bring up how she used to cheer for the Vikings and all that. You're just out having a good time.

    Then, when you get home, make wild, passionate love to her.


    Go Vikings!

    As long as it's not a Lions, Packer, or Bears jersey you shouldn't worry about it.

    Yeah man. If her shirt is your biggest problem, you are doing pretty good.

    At some point you have to let it go.

    Man I really sweat it.
    For some reason, I feel so disrespected.
    This is my team and she can't support me in my time of need.


    I don't know, maybe I'm too passionate.
    Maybe you should be more passionate to your wife & let her decide which team she supports.
    Thats my point and I left this part out.

    I don't think she is being passionate to me.
    My family is from the same country she is from, but a different region.


    If her team plays my team in soccer (They play next week), I will cheer for her team.
    It's where she grew up and its all about respect.


    I grew up in Minnesota, so I wasn't born there.


    I'm just trying to be fair.


    I will sit out of this conversation after this, I just needed to add that part.
    You shouldn't feel compelled to rout for her team when they are playing your team in soccer, B-Ball or any other sport.

    Stick with your team & rout for them.
    You wouldn't root for her team if she was a Packer fan would you?

    Perhaps she'll feel disrespected if you wear a Vikings jersey at the Jaguars game when they are playing in Florida, but I don't think so.

    Again, bottom line, you don't own her, control her or make up her mind for her. If she's a Jaguar fan, let her be one, after all it is HER choice, not yours.

    You just continue to be a Vikings fan.

    Just because she wants to support her team & not wear a Vikings jersey doesn't mean she doesn't respect you. She's doing nothing but respecting you. She's letting you rout for the team of your choosing & likewise you should do the same.

    Like someone else said, you should be happy your wife enjoys football.

    Go to the game together, rout for your respective teams & enjoy yourselves & rib each other a little.

    No matter who wins, Vikings or Jags, there's bound to be some sympathy sex involved.

    I've been a Viking fan my entire life (born and raised).
    My wife is an immigrant so she didn't know the NFL until she moved here.
    We lived in Minnesota with me for 5 years.
    We have been together for a total of 11 years and she knows I care about the Vikings more than anything.


    Next year the Vikings play Jacksonville in Florida.
    She said if we go to the game, she will wear a Jacksonville jersey.
    I said if that happens, I will feel disrespected.


    My question to everybody is.


    Should I feel disrespected? Please try to be non-biased and honest.

    No, you shouldn't feel disrespected for two reasons:

    1.
    She is a female
    2.
    She is an immigrant with different culturual views

    It is what it is...
    my two cents.

    Yeah I agree. My ex ordered me to bow down to her (in a friendly way) after the shutout in Green Bay. Coem to think of it we broke up somewhere around that game.
    ;D


    I always like watching football with a fan of our foe any how. Both sides have fun because you can always have that friendly rub it in their face and them vise versa. I find it enjoyable actually. You can actually have more fun at the game that way(Especially if the Vikes are winning). I actually think you're right and should feel a bit hurt but she's the girl and in these situations that aren't of the greatest importance
    you should just give in and say she's right because it's not a big deal. Just say "Yup you can where that Jags jersey but you might feel a bit silly when they get their butts beat by the Vikes.
    ;D" In a friendly way.

    Don't listen to these people. Divorce the woman. You don't need this bs in your life. I'd shoot her if I were you. Go to minnesota and find yourself a proper woman.
