Would you still support this team if it was relocated?

Then if the Avs moved to say Kansas City, I would probably cheer for the team I have more connection to.
fixed .

I think if the Avs were to relocate, I would no longer be cheering for them as my "hometown" team (grew up in CO, no longer live there). As a result, I think that I would slowly lose interest in the new entity they became. I would then solely follow hockey in the capacity that I follow the other 29 teams: by wanting to watch certain player(s). I am a big fan of the way Duchene plays, and think Mac will be fun to watch, so I believe I would watch and support the team for that reason, but not as a major fan of the team itself.

I can understand how a lot of people could jump on the bandwagon in the Sakic/Forsberg days, but those are quite long gone. For the 5 years before 13-14 how could any non-Coloradoans spontaneously become Avs fans?
I've been a fan since I was a kid. Those Sakic/Forsberg days might be the reason, I don't remember clearly. I watched all teams whenever I could and played the video games. Staying up really late to watch NHL was cool when I was only 7-8 years old. It became a habit and Avs became the team to watch.

haha, NHL97 is the reason I'm an Avs fan too. I remember playing the demo on SEGA Saturn all the time..there was 2 teams to pick: the red wings and the avalanche. My bro always picked detroit, so I had to pick the only team that was left. And I really think it was all because of the logo and the way the american commentator pronounced Forsberg, which sounded so cool to a German kid 8, maybe 9 years of age
and then one thing led to the other, and so many nights(and especially the days after) wasted on watching late night nhl games. my sleeping rythm couldnt have been worse over all these years, still ver ythankful for all the excitement and desperation I've gotten from the Avalanche

I know exactly what you feel like, just that its even one hour later in your timezone


And well yeah, I dunno if I'd still be a fan if they moved away, probably not, or maybe? perhaps!

My roommate brought that up during our move to a new apartment. I was a little embarrassed by how badly he beat me in that.

Its cool to me to see a lot of non-locals consider Colorado part of the Avs identity.

And who am I kidding, I'm sure I'd root for the current players somewhere else. The next era though I don't know.
