    Do you like a non-local NFL team?

    It seems that sometimes I get grief for not liking a "local" NFL team. I am a hardcore 49ers fan, and sometimes people are like "WHY?" I grew up having Rice, Montana, and Young as my favorite players and have stuck with the team.

    So, if you like a team besides the Bears, Packers, Chiefs, Rams, or Vikings, post your favorite team and why.

    Re: Do you like a non-local NFL team?

    Do I like a non-local NFL team? No, diehard Rams fan (Kurt Warner is from CR) but I am a diehard New York Islanders fan. Kyle Okposo (their starting winger) played hockey in Des Moines for the Buccaneers. And I'm a Rick DiPietro fan (older goalie) really just the players honestly.

    Eagles.

    Randal Cunningham, Reggie White were my two favorite players growing up.

    I grew up in Iowa and have always kind of liked the Packers - mostly because my grandpa was a huge GB fan. Honestly no other reason. He told me when I moved to Minneapolis that I wasn't allowed in the house at Christmas if I was wearing purple and gold. He wasn't kidding.

    I've got a similar NBA story with being a Lakers fan. It's all you could catch on TV in the early 80s (other than the Celtics) and just started following them. Plus, like the Lakers or not, growing up watching Magic, Kareem, Worthy, Rambis, etc. was pretty entertaining. First YMCA basketball team I was on was the ""Lakers and the rest is history. Strange reason, but that's really the only way I can explain it.

    Re: Do you like a non-local NFL team?

    I'm a Broncos fan because I had to pick a Superbowl winner in 4th grade (had no idea what football was apart than a recess game) and I liked the look of the old bucking horse logo.

    I was a huge "Captain Comeback" fan in hs, but when the Colts traded away Faulk and Harbaugh it soured me on them (granted they got Manning & Edge ... but that's not the point).

    Fantasy football has really tempered my rooting for a single team ... now I like the ones "my guys" are on.

    I'm also a 49ers fan and your rationale is identical to mine. It was a band wagon move when I was a kid, but I've stuck with them for 20+ years now. I also don't care much for being in the majority when it comes to team sports. I've never liked the Vikes, Bulls, Cubs, etc. Growing up it seemed like everyone else just liked the closest team by default. Wasn't my style.

    I do love me some Frank Gore. Having my favorite RB being Steven Jackson, gotta love those power runners!

    Re: Do you like a non-local NFL team?

    Big Dolphins fan myself. When I was little my dad would tell me about Griese, Zonk, and the No Name Defense. They were still pretty good then, going to the Super Bowl XVII with David Woodley and the Killer B's on defense (I still hate John Riggins to this day). Then in 1982 they drafted Marino and I was hooked.

    Diehard Patriots fan...liked them ever since I was 7 and they drafted Drew Bledsoe, and I liked their logo. Thought the team would go down in shambles once Bledsoe got hurt
