hi goons,

how do you choose a football team to live and die with? I dont want to reveal my geographic location, as I think choosing a team based on your immediate location seems kinda lame, unless thats how everyone does it and im just being a little weirdo about it. but that leaves me with the chargers which have kinda sucky colors!



teams I will not be considering:

- Dallas Cowboys, because a lot of obnoxious people i know like them.
- extreme losers, as being a socdem in the US is a constant kick in the dick as it is, and i dont want to be losing on multiple fronts of my life.

Its good to do this so you can actually go in person to the games which is a lot more fun than watching on tv

the packers are the most soc-dem compliant team, being owned by a publicly held nonprofit instead of a billionaire bastard. they're also pretty good right now! (this will end in a few year when their vaxx-sceptic weirdo qb ages into dust)

+1 To the Packers. Aaron Rodgers is a derp, but the team's ownership is pretty cool and they are fun to watch and tend to win poo poo.

I made this thread after seeing my friend engage in self harm this season by being a raiders fan. Its not going well but im wishing him the best.

I can convert to raiders because the owner seems like a really cool hapsburg sports lich, and apparently they're somewhat progressive as a sports team

Another +1 for the Packers here. Our colors may be garbage but they are consistently pretty good, even on years they don't play well. Its very rare they don't at least make it to the playoffs but seem to always lose the NFC championship game.

They are usually always at the top of the division too so you can rub into the faces of any Bears or Vikings fans you know. I guess Lions fans too but come on, are they even a team after the last few years?

The reckoning for the Packers is coming soon since Aaron Rodgers will probably retire in the next few years. I say good riddance. If dude kept his mouth shut and just got a COVID shot it wouldn't be so bad but now I just want that rear end in a top hat to go away. Then again he brought back the mullet so even if he kept his mouth shut he has still committed some serious crimes against humanity.

I say all that as someone who owns Packer stock.

Mark Davis is an ultimate doofus failson and Al Davis was key to a lot of integration stuff in the league so the Raiders definitely have that stuff going for them.
They just can't ever make anything work.

Are you sure? You're perfectly predisposed to being a Vikings fan, what with being used to constantly being kicked in the dick.

You could also choose to follow a specific player instead. Tom Brady is a good choice since even though he is a massive piece of poo poo dude is usually always winning.

You'll still end up choosing one team for most of their career but it allows you to change your team later in their career.

NOW is the time to be a Patriots fan! No more Tom Brady you can dick-ride the Pats without feeling like you’re just jumping on the bandwagon.

Honestly just follow whatever team you’re geographically close too. If they win—fun! Even if they suck it’s fun to watch a bunch of big dumb losers fail to play a stupid game.

Chargers colors are rad and not sucky OP! :colbert:



Maybe try the Arizona Cardinals? They are the oldest NFL team and they always need more fans.

Or the Cleveland Browns. They just brought back THE ELF.

Or the Kansas City Chiefs, as Patrick Mahomes is cool.

Bills if you like flaming tables and the idea of throwing dildos on the field. Also, if you live in an impoverished country, the winners of 4 straight superbowls!
Browns if you're pro-serial sex crimes, and the idea of feeding a machine designed to produce endless failure appeals to you.

bills would be my second recommendation for sure. i think they're gonna be good for a long time, they have the whole revenge for the 4 straight superbowl losses storyline, and yeah, their fanbase is wilding out

plus you have even more reason to hate the pats

Just pick the Packers man. They're known for pulling off crazy rear end plays and it's really entertaining to watch. Only team in the NFL that's publicly owned. Rodgers is turning into a chud but he'll be gone soon.

every nfl player has the iq of a border collie. don't bother trying to pick on personality or any of that poo poo. just spend a few sundays watching all the games you can and pick the team you found the most fun. there's no rush. football is dangerous and profitable so it's never going away

Some Packers fans have waited almost 50 years for season tickets. That wait is now over.

quote:

More than 99% of the Packers' 38,000 season ticket holders renew their seats every year, which results in about 70-100 new ticket buyers. The team has a waiting list of 140,000 for 81,441-seat Lambeau Field, which means a long time on the list.

Cory Vogel of Green Bay was put on the list when he was 2. He's 51 now and recently accepted an offer for Gold package tickets.

We really suck, but when we do win or ruin other teams' chances in the late season, its really funny.

Plus, if you get in now, when we do well 10 years from now you can say you aren't band wagoning.

Both of these teams will only ever bring you heartbreak and misery. Do not follow them, even of getting drunk and jumping through a table sounds fun.

didn't read the thread but here's how i picked a nba team (started watching last year):

watch clips on instagram/tiktok/youtube of sport of yuor choice. take a liking to the style of a team or the personality of some of the players on a team. start watching games of theirs and feel free to flip teams when they play a bette rteam with more charismatic players. you're in an exploratory phase, so just enjoy some content and go with your gut.

picking the home team cause it's close is def for chumps
