Do any of you do this too?

Postby TN_Titans_05 » Sat Jan 07, 2006 5:29 pm

When I hate both teams equally or I could care less about them equally, I root for the team in which I had a fantasy player on during the season?

For example I hate the Bucs and Skins both the same, so I am rooting for the Skins a little more b/c I had Cooley in Fantasy this year..... Am I the only one who does this?

Especially in a keeper! As a Portis owner, I'll hope he does great to up his value.

Nope, I just hope that one player does well and the rest of the team sucks, so the team loses but I still win. Doesn't work all the time though :-°

I do when there are no other reasons to hate the team. Tomorrow I'll be rooting the G-Men and the Bungles. G-Men because I want an NFC East Championship game. And Bungles because Carson Palmer my 9th round draft pick will go in round 2 next year. ;-D

That is one good thing about being a Lions Fan. You know your team is gonna lose, so it makes it easy to root for your fantasy player.

I never do that.

During the fantasy season, if I have a fantasy player on a team that I hate, I root for that team to lose but for my player to have a good game.

After the fantasy season is over I could care less about a fantasy player that I HAD on my team. If I'm watching a playoff game with 2 teams that I hate, I just watch the game because its football.

This happens to me sometimes in the Super Bowl. I'm a Jets/Giants fan. Last years Super Bowl had 2 teams in it that I can't stand. I watched the game of course but I really didn't care who won. I joked all week before the game that I was going to the movies instead of watching the game.

I root for my fantasy players when they're on my team. Once the fantasy season is over I could care less what these players do unless they're on one of the NFL teams that I root for.
