    Who's Your Backup Team?

    With a possibility of the Vikings moving to LA it made me think who would I root for in the NFL. I've had a crush for being a Jets fan ever since Rex Ryan came to town. He's kinda like a Paul Rhoads/Mark Mangino character. Half Mangino's size and half Rhoads' enthusiasm. Who would you root for if your team moved?

    Re: Who's Your Backup Team?

    I'm not sure there is or can be a backup. I suppose as long as they dont change the nickname I might try to still follow the Vikes. In baseball I have a few teams I root for so it would not be a problem to come up with a back up, but Football just doesnt have that same feel. Plus the Vikes were my first 'favorite' team.

    Anyone who plays the Packers or Bears. I wouldn't really watch anyone. I would be focused on my fantasy team if anything.

    Re: Who's Your Backup Team?

    A move likely wouldn't affect which team is my primary team, as I have cheered for the Atlanta Falcons since 1991 and have never been a local team for me anyway (although my family almost did move to Huntsville, AL around that time). However, the Baltimore Ravens are my backup team, and a big part of that is Ray Lewis.

    Re: Who's Your Backup Team?

    Regardless if the Vikings ever move, I will never root for the Bears, Packers, or any team from the 90s that everyone in Des Moines jumped on the band-wagon for (49ers & Cowboys)

    I find the AFC boring, but I would probably end up following either the Steelers or Chiefs.

    Re: Who's Your Backup Team?

    If the Vikings move, I'll probably just quit caring about the NFL altogether until there's a team back in Minneapolis.

    It happened to me in hockey. They moved the North Stars just as I was starting to follow sports, and I wasn't going to cheer for a team out of Dallas. So I cheered for the Blackhawks, as they were the closest. Then Minnesota got the Wild back in 2000, so I cheer for both now. They've never met in the playoffs, so that's nice.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Who do Viking fans usually root for in the playoffs?

    Go Pack.
