    Player or Team?

    If your all-time favorite player from your favorite team left, would you follow the player or stay with the team?

    Being from the North where there's no Football (CFL doesn't count), I end up liking teams either because of their players or their overall playing style, but my heart really doesn't side with any team. I probably won't follow the Colts anymore whenever Peyton leaves, won't hate the Pats as much whenever Bellihick leaves, will stop liking the Ravens if their aggressive D style changes, and already don't care as much for the Eagles since JJ kicked the bucket.

    However when talking hockey it is team first ; I can't really think about not rooting for the Habs anymore (exception being if Quebec gets a team back). But I still stick to the previous logic to define which other teams I will like.

    Its gotta be team, the last two years the Eagles have lost Dawk, Donovan, Westy, Sheldon Brown, Shawn Andrews (albeit not much of a loss any more), Jon Runyan, and William Thomas. If I would've abandoned them at any time, it would've been now. I'm standing pat with the Eagles for life.

    I don't really have a favorite team. I follow the Draft and now Recruiting so I start to like a Player and like what team he's on. I like every team ones a little more then others I go for the Vikings and now am starting to like the Lions because I like Stafford,Calvin,Suh. I really like the Viking because of AD.

    Winslow is my favorite player and that is the topic of the thread.

    Team. For me, living in Ottawa there is no local team to follow(except in hockey, but **** the sens), so the reason I cheer for the teams that I cheer for is because of a player. I'm a Broncos fan because of Elway, but I didn't stop being one after he retired. I'm a Devils fan because of Brodeur, and I'll be one after he retires. I became a Cavs fan because of LeBron, and I'm still one even though he tried to take the easy way out. I think a lot of it depends on how they leave, anyway. Some of the examples I've seen here, like Bledsoe, or Nomar, guys who were kinda pushed out, or guys who became cap casualties or the team just went for a youth movement. Then, it's easy to remain a fan of your team, while also hoping the player finds success. Then there's the whole "have an hour long special on live TV where you announce you're going to go ring chasing despite being only 25 years old" method. When this happens, you can't really have it both ways, you have to choose one or the other.

    Also with football, obviously with Denver giving away their two best players the past two years, I remain a fan, however reluctantly. And because I still blame McXanders for them, I wouldn't mind seeing Cutler and Marsh perform well.

    It's only a matter of when, not if.

He got drafted by the Colts, I got to know the organization later on and if he were ot spurn the Colts, I'd be highly upset but I have no clue what I'd do.

    Interesting thread actually.

    I was born and raised in the South Jersey area (mostly Eagles country with a smatter of Giants fans) but my whole family are pretty much Steeler fans (but Philadelphia fans for everything else) because my mother went to high school with Franco Harris (the high school I most recently graduated from) and he grew up on the street in which she lived on.

    But I never was into the Eagles (though at age 5 or 6 when I got into sports, I couldn't really get into Bobby Hoying though I think I have a youth-sized, kelly green jersey of Ricky Watters somewhere) nor the Steelers. So I kind of originally liked the Jaguars because of Mark Brunell and Natrone Means. No real reason other than I guess I remember them playing the Steelers a couple times and winning so I picked them.
