I know this is a gun board but I just can't help it. This is about the only pro sports I get into. Got into it back in the early eighties when I was in the 8th grade. In SF. So needless to say, I am a big 49ers fan. Will continue to be. Although looking forward to the season, I don't have very hi hope for my boys. Garcia doesn't have the experience yet. Hell the back ups aren't looking any better. The Niners are great at cultivating quarterback, so our rut won't last long. Our front line needs to start working together, Owens and Stokes are really beginning to shine and have a great future I think. Running game should alleviate the pressure on the passing though, since we seem to have problems with pass protection. I am predicting we win at least half our games this year. Looks to be a nice schedule for us. Any other fans out there? What be your team?

Tennessee Titans. I have been an Oilers fan since 1976, and I just couldn't give up on them when they moved to Tennessee. I can't wait for football season.

Chiefs are my team! All they need is a solid QB and we should have a pretty good season. In a couple of years look for the Chiefs in the Super Bowl.

Thank god the niners dynasty is over. Damn the last fifteen years of football has sucked. With my brother and all his niners crap and with the Raiders always looking good but never getting the job done. I can always hope Big Al will pass on one of these years so the Raiders can get great again. See, you got me all riled up and it's not even August yet.

COWBOYS. Who cares whether they win or lose.thats my pick

Being a lifelong Dallas Cowboy fan, the last few years haven't exactly been anything to write home about. This year, with Tony Banks running the offense, doesn't give the appearance of being much better. My biggest hope this year is to maybe get the chance to see Emmett Smith break one of the greatest records in pro football history, Walter Peyton's career rushing record. At least this year I'll finally get to see Bob Hayes inducted into the Cowboy's "Ring of Honor" for the impact he had on the passing game as we know it now.

I like watching hockey live. Doesn't float my boat when its on the tube though. Baseball just bore me so much. So much time between something exciting, and the announcers and their stats. Its so boring that sometimes they start talking about kids a family of players and who's on the freaking stands. That and I can't play baseball personally. Basketball just has too many games. Womens tennis I can watch. All those grunting and groaning from those women just makes it....ummm.... interesting.

My dad being a Texan, I've been a Cowboys fan all my life. I grew up near Baltimore, so of course the Colts were also my team, unless they were playing the Boys. Guess who I like now (in addition to the Boys of course). All I can say is Banks is a pretty good QB, if he has protection. Dilfer showed he has it too, once he was on a team that he could work with. My prediction for the 2001 season???? Ravens all the way!!! They still have their defense intact, added a better QB, tightened up the right side of the offensive line, and have some kick ass guys coming off the DL. I think they are on their way to being a dynasty class team. One thing is for sure, they have a hell of a lot of fan support (even when they sucked), and despite the lack of respect the got from the media last year, you have to admit they have a killer defense! I particularly liked Tony Saragusa's(sp?) comment after he was fined for crushing Oakland's QB: "I don't see what he's crying about, I lay on top of my wife all the time and she seems to enjoy it."

Been a Cowboys fan for 20 years. You want to make the football season that much more enjoyable????? Join a fantasy football league. I have been in one for the last 3 years. It kicks ass and with the football package from direct TV I see every single game each week.

O.K. get ready to rag me!!! I am and will always be a diehard Bengals fan!! It's a tough thing to admit to when you've lost as many games as we have in the ninties and now in the new millinium, but guess what I ALWAYS stick to my guns no matter what!!! So good or bad I'm not a bandwagon boy and I'll root for my bengals till the day I die or whenever they just fold from the embarressment!!!

I say to hell with all professional sports. A bunch of overpaid thugs who would be gang bangers for the most part if not for pro sports. Also, the vast majority are anti-gun.

What do mean anti-guns....most of these guys get busted for guns [;D]
Link Posted: 5/11/2001 12:20:02 PM EDT
Anti-gun??? Why, the greates center ever, Dermotti Dawson, is a proud M16 owner and avid hunter. I know he doesn't rep. the league, but it's a cool fact. BTW, GO STEELERS!!! (can't get much worse than last season, anyway.)

Hey at least Model let you guys keep your colors and team name. When Irsay left Baltimore, he took it all with him. I was lucky since I was a Cowboys fan first and foremost. It still pissed me off in a big way though. I was one happy camper the first time the Ravens beat the Colts. The anger Cleveland fans feel will go away with time, and if they ever beat the Ravens ([:D] jus kidding) you will feel vindicated. The Browns will be back, you can bet on it.
