Sorry brah, call it like I see it.


I didn't root for Bama or the Falcons either this past season.

It was pathetic to watch "lifelong LSU fans" yelling Roll Tide Roll because they wanted to keep the streak alive, or because they just didn't like ND.

In this instance, you have to give respect where it's deserved. The Crimson Tide aren't flashy and have a great team with the best coach in the league


So you root for Bama when they aren't playing LSU?

Spurs/pelicans = saints/falcons or bama/ LSU??




The pelicans have no real rivals. The clippers are more our rivals than the spurs.

Get over yourself super fan

So a divisional rival that ripped our hearts out in 08 is a lesser enemy than a team in the other conference? Damn, the Heat really did a number on you in 2010.

Given the terrible attendance, low brand recognition, and overall lack of buzz, excitement and passion about the Pelicans, it's not really that surprising our teams "fans" are ready to jump on a rival team's bandwagon because they don't like a player on the opposing team.



This is kinda like cheering for Bama over Notre Dame. I hate Bama, but I will always root for the SEC over Notre Dame.

I think everyone makes good points here. I'm not pulling for the Spurs, I'm pulling against the Heat, and I guess I wouldn't mind the Spurs winning another title. And yes, if the Spurs win, Duncan retires, possibly bringing Pop with him

to be a rival you have to be at least competitive with them. do you consider the grizz a hated rival? we are not the spurs equal

I guess the problem is we don't see them as rivals. I would never root for the Falcons in the SuperBowl even if they were somehow playing the Cowboys. The Spurs just don't revolt me like that. What can we say, the team that moved here in 2002 and then left and came back and then was rumored to leave and now is finally in it's first year of setting down permanent roots hasn't been here long enough to make us hate anyone but the Mavericks.
