    So I have a question for all my RJ sports fans. If there is a team that you hate in any sport do you take the time to watch every game they play?

    Please weigh in icon_biggrin.gif

    No, I would rather have a life.

    I might watch a team I really dislike if it's an important game, but I'd rather not watch one of those teams. Since a team I like is probably playing at the same time, I'd rather watch that.
    I don't say I hate any teams; it would imply that I'm passionate about them. Well, I am happy when they lose. icon_twisted.gif


    Teams on the dislike list:

    Notre Dame Irish
    Duke Blue Devils
    Florida State Seminoles
    Texas Longhorns
    USC Trojans
    San Antonio Spurs
    Boston Celtics
    New England Patriots
    France (world cup)

    No I almost never watch the teams that I don't like. I just watch my dawgs, my falcons, and my braves. Other than that, I will watch big games like playoffs or what not no matter who is in them.

    I don't watch their games unless they have to play one of my teams (Lakers/ Dolphins), or unless I feel like they might get murked. In terms of my least favored....I despise the NE Patriots with every fibre of my being, and the Miami Heat, but to a lesser degree.

    I'll only watch them if they are playing my team or if its the postseason.
    1. Michigan Wolverines AKA Little Sister
    2. NE Patriots (Home of Tom Brady former Little Sister)
    3. Boston Redsox


    And the sport I watch the most is probably basketball because there is alot more games than college football. But College>Pro Sports AnyDay of the week.

    Not even. When it comes to baseball teams, I only watch games of teams I support. And since baseball is the ONLY sport I watch, I'd never watch games of teams I don't care for. icon_confused.gif

    I only watch the teams I hate if its the only game on or they are playing one of my faves. I will watch the score crawl though to hopefully see them getting crushed.

    I will always take my teams winning over the teams I hate losing.

    Hell no! I'd rather slit my wrists than watch them play- except of course when they're playing my team

    Teams I dislike:

    1. Miami Heat (actually just LBJ)--> just because I root for the Lakers
    2. UCLA Bruins--> because my parents are USC alums
    3. Harvard Fencing Team- because I root for Yale obviously

    i frequently find it more enjoyable watching a team i hate lose than watching a team i love win.

    at the moment, it's the celtics. in the past, that short list would include the sacramento kings and utah jazz. it's great watching the team you hate lose.
