Your favorite player leaves your favorite team for their arch rival. Still cheer for him?

My favorite player is Barry Sanders. Yes I continue to cheer him on even though he hasn't touched a football in 15 years. ????

Case in point: Jerry rice played for the raiders in their most recent supper bowl, I cheered HIM on.

I won't cheer for him/her, unless I think they're better than their team

Though their role on the team, and how long they have played on it, affects how much my opinion of them goes down. If they are a major component, it would go down further than a small role player.

Yeah...no. Sorry, I understand it is part of sports to change teams, but I care deeply about loyalty, and not just in sports. In sports it largely plays out as greater admiration for people who stay with their current team & turn down larger contracts offered by rivals.

I was ok when Favre went to the Jets, but when he went to Minnesota, it was a slap in the face.

Whoa, boys. Play nice.

Besides, the Bruins are gonna smack both your teams around from one zone to the other.

Brett Gardner is a good dude.
Much respect for him.

This is exactly what ruined football for me. Neal Smith went to Denver and the NFL was never the same.

Yes, if it is your true favorite player then yes. Only a true fan cheers for a player other than a "star" on the team.

I'm a Yankees fan, so obviously I can't stand the sox. So in regards to youkilis, I'm pretty torn. I've never liked him, and still don't, even though he's a Yankee. It's weird, I didn't mind Damon as much.

If they willfully leave the team, it should be a crime to still support them.
Lebron is the epitome of a traitor.

Common Seattle still likes Ichiro after he moved to the Yankees! But if seattle ever plays New York I hope seattle kicks some ass!

Depends. If they are a talented athlete and a good person, and it wasn't their fault that they were traded, I'll follow them to their new team.

I would be angry with him, but I would still support him. My favorite players aren't just those who play for my team, they are players whose skill and style I admire on any team.

I would cheer for him to do a good job and to stay safe but I will still cheer for my team.

Lindros was my favorite but when he left I still loved him. I hate the Rangers and I dont think he belonged in Dallas but i think if you are a true fan of a player, you love them no matter where they go even if you dont like the team.

As a Giants fan, I hated Barry Bonds and refused to cheer my team as long as he was on it. He's a lying d-bag steroid user who sullied the reputation of the team and the game. I wish they'd take his worthless record away and ban him from the HOF for cheating.

Yeah Damon is a scumbag... Unlike Kevin Youkilis who just signed with the Yanks.. He'll get a good reception here.

I was too, because I was a kid who idolized him. I never cheered for him again. Now that I'm older, I still think he did a stupid thing, but I understand why.

I won't cheer for him, but I will still respect his achievements. You can't blame a player for being on a team you hate, you just wish they were still on yours.

If not, doesn't show true fanship of that player. Kurt Warner left St. Louis for Arizona.. Still cheered for him.
If Derek Jeter would leave NYY for BOS. I would cheer for him to do well (and his team to suck)

Sometimes. I rooted for Steve McNair when he played for the Ravens. Class act that did a ton for the community here despite his sad & tragic personal decisions.

Marion Hosa is a great example. And I died laughing when he lost to his old team the next year.

Who's wishing? Its merely an observation of his fragility. The kid gets concussed every time he sneezes.

I couldn't give less of a damn either way. I just came to count the Brett Favre posts. 5 by my count.
