Hm, I could never think of rooting for a different team no matter what the circumstance.

Same here, I could never be anything but a Rangers fan.

LOL! Yeah, I will admit...that was pretty bad seeing the Mets. But hey, its more like a love-hate relationship. It wasn't till last year I jumped on the Raptors bandwagon haha! They have been promoted from the Crapters.

But yeah, you can't ALWAYS be a serious fan, have to have some fun with your teams sometimes.

That might be true, but its probably best to keep something like that secret

I have no problem with people jumping on a bandwagon, so long as they admit that's what they've done. I hate people that talk mad **** and endlessly promote their team as if they've been a fan all along, when in reality they only hopped on the bandwagon after the championship season. Basically, I hate Patriots fans.

1. Didn't sign a star player (Rangers signed 2 in Gomez and Drury)
2. Didn't draft the Russian star (even though we got Toskala, but we could've traded someone for a first round pick, lots of players they don't need)
3. We still have Raycroft

I laughed for about 15 minutes on that one...

I live by this team, and die by this team. If I ever converted, even though it wouldnt happen, I would convert to a Oil or thrasher fan.

That could have been the case, if it was not that he was supporting the Leafs!

though I could never envision not being primarily a Ranger fan I've always kind of liked the Leafs. The two organizations seemed to be most hated around. I kind of like to look at this situation as there is always room enough for one more Ranger fan. If you're going to be a dark entity like us you shouldn't worry too much about stealing fans from other teams.

Real fans don't convert. "Fans" who convert always seem to convert to what they perceive as a team that is better than the one they currently follow.

Nahh I lived in atl during their inaugural season, and then moved back here in 04. They are a good team, and a good franchise.
