A Question for Bills fans?

Recommended Posts

I hate the Cowboys, Giants, Redskins, Browns, Dolphins, Jets, Pats, Titans.  IE the division teams and teams that have provided particularly painful playoff memories.  Most everyone else I'm "Switzerland" and my rooting interests are heavily influenced by fantasy football.

To the contrary, the Pack have always been “rootable” for me where Buffalo is unaffected  by the outcome—franchise has a legendary history, is fellow small market-ish and usually does things the right way. Past couple years have taken some of the sheen off for me, but still overall would never say I dislike them the way I do every AFC team outside the Bills pretty much. I especially root for the Pack when playing Dallas, Giants, and ‘Skins. 😉

Not at all! Seeing as I have to live in Chicago with obnoxious Bears fans. The enemy of my enemy is my friend!

I don't mind Green Bay, I don't see a reason to dislike them.  I don't like Dallas, and to a certain extent, Washington.  If Dan Snyder sold the team, I probably would be indifferent to the 'Skins.

Did Aaron Rodgers recently make out with his son while getting a chest massage? 

 

No?

 

Then no hate here.

Are the Packers one of your least favorite teams outside of your conference?

 

i started watching the NFL in the early 70s, so every historic hi-lite and "ALCOA Can't Wait" commercial flashback was of Lombardi

 

but the real-time Pack stunk except for a handful of years until Favre, The Majik Man was great for a year

 

so no thoughts were really given to a bad NFC team, they were never on TV,  until Favre came along, and I was a big fan

I don’t mind the Packers, I just dislike Aaron Rogers. I just hate the Patriots and the Jets.

I was a huge fan of the Packers in the ‘60’s. Bought and read repeatedly Bart Starr’s, Jerry Kramer’s and Coach Lombardi’s books.

Nothing has diminished over time. Easily my 2nd favorite team, I only want them to lose the us.

I can think of several NFC teams I dislike more than the Packers.

 

Cowboys

Eagles (their fans are abhorrent)

Redskins

Seahawks

 

The rest I just can't really dislike because they don't play them that often.

 

And the Packers are awesome for being a small town, community owned team. Their fans are easily the best in the league IMO.

No sir.  Agree with the Cowboys (trauma of SBs 3 and 4 will never ever heal, but the better team/coach simply won).  Never really hated the Giants (the one that truly got away) and the hatred for the Redskins faded quickly, I've felt sorry for them through the Snyder era. 

 

For some reason the Saints (dirty bounty hunters), although I'd like to see Brees win one more before he retires.  And the 49ers from high school rivalry with friends who were fans but the hate has probably faded at this point.  

 

I think Rodgers comes off as a bit of a whiny prima donna but I still feel he's an all time great QB (who was probably wasted) and like Brees, wouldn't mind seeing him win one more.  But no outright hate or even dislike for Green Bay or any other team in the NFC other than the ones I've listed.

I always thought of the Packers as a model for success,  but now with all this Rodgers drama,  not so much anymore. Thumbs down to the Pack

The only negative i had for the Pack was for one playoff game with the Aikman Cowboys and CBS insisted on a two-minute pre-game feature on DT John Jurkovic, a total embarrassment on what a goofy and wild and crazy fun guy he was.

 

Then he got taken out by a chopblock in the first quarter and I never heard of him again.

I have a soft spot for most of the northern belt teams...GB, CHI, DET, MIN, CLE, CIN.  That list ends about there tho.

Outside of the conference I would say so as of right now.

 

Nothing against the city or the fans as I think you guys are awesome.

 

It's just aaron Rodgers for me. I really don't like him and I think he is an extremely arrogant individual.

My grandparents lived in wisconsin, and I stayed with them for a short period so I always had a bit of love for the Pack. I don’t like that they seemingly wasted Rodgers talent the past few years, and I don’t like Rodgers so much since he’s become a bit of a diva.

 

but there’s too much football history there for me to dislike them!

Never met Pack fans who didn't like to drink beers, talk X's and O's, play games, ice fish etc.  I've had a lot of fun with them over the years

Small market team, blue collar regional fan base. Stayed relevant as a fan base in spite of years of non-competitive teams. Known for great tailgaiting. Spent years having some of their home games played away from home. If we had won 4 straight instead of lost, would even have the same "titletown" nickname. Disliking Green Bay would be like disliking your twin brother (if only fraternal twins.)

I put them in the same bucket as most other teams. It's the "I don't care" bucket.

If anything one wld assume we share the whole small city bond. Ive never had any ill will except when we go head to head.

 

Is this being asked to decide some weird bet or something?? Rather odd question
