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. ????
Brett Favre is dead to me.
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'm an Astros fan...it has happened every year my entire life...
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.
I would cheer for the player (Brett Gardner) not the team.
This is exactly what ruined football for me. Neal Smith went to Denver and the NFL was never the same.
Damn you Ray Allen!
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.
Kobe's never moving to the celtics so I'm not worried
breesus would never leave the saints. trick question. :p
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.
My thoughts exactly. Like, EXACTLY.
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.
Sure when Shaq left the lakers I still cheered for him :) didn't cheer when he was drunk ! Lol
Put the NFL polls back up so I can gloat and rub this win in their face!!!!!
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.
Still pissed Johnny Damon left the sox for the yanks :(
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.
In game seven of the Stanley cup of course
Marion Hosa is a great example. And I died laughing when he lost to his old team the next year.
Hell no. . . . .
Who's wishing? Its merely an observation of his fragility. The kid gets concussed every time he sneezes.
In no way are the Angels a rival to the Cardinals
Wooooah. Never wish injury like that. Btw he has had 9months of rest. His head will be fine
His mullet worked better in Europe.
He'll be dead before long anyway.
Woohoo! Start the countdown to Sid the kid's next concussion! (P.S. GO FLYERS!)
Sure, with chants of "trai-tor trai-tor trai-tor!"
I couldn't give less of a damn either way. I just came to count the Brett Favre posts. 5 by my count.
