This kind of thinking simply baffles me, and it appears to be almost exclusive to Vikings fans.

Why would anyone watch the NFL, or more specifically, support one specific team, if what they do on the field doesn't matter? I mean, Im not one of those people that thinks Football is a matter of life and death but what's the point of supporting one team exclusively if your not going to revel in they're accomplishments, and be hurt my they're misfortunes?
I agree with that thinking to a point ... but how far do you take it? You get to enjoy your teams victory and if it makes you happy you can "rub it in" to your rivals that your team did better that season. However, you only get to live in the past for so long.At some point the only people that get to "brag" about the team's victory are the players and staff that were part of the team.

Yeah ... you get to remember fondly that time your team won the super bowl ... but bragging about it doesn't make sense. The bragging rights of spectators are quite limited.
2009 you would have thought that Vikings fans had won the SB, but then 2010 rolls around and they are forced to watch they're (In their mind) feircest rival beat them and they're 300 year old QB in to the dirt twice and then go on to win the Super Bowl, and suddenly its all, "Why do you care? You didn't win the Superbowl..."

Sorry Vikes fans, thats not how it works, fans remember and revere they're team of choice's accomplishments, are you telling me your not proud of your Vikings for anything they have ever done? If you can't be proud of you team winning the SB, then I simply dont know what the point of being a fan is.
Being proud of your team winning the super bowl and bragging about it as if you were on the team are two different things.

I'm not a fan of bragging in general ... but if you're going to do it, at least make it about something you did.

On top of that though, it's just super weak as smack. All you're really saying is "The team that I'm a fan of has won more super bowls than the team you're a fan of!".

Had you personally beaten me at something it might matter and it might 'hurt my pride' ... in this context it just comes off lame.

I agree with alot of what your saying, I was simply replying because I mean, comon, I have Vike freinds who still talk #### to me about that 2004 Wildcard game. :lol:

Though I think you may have me confused with the other dude you were replying to, as I certainly wasnt trying to rub anything in, unless im forgetting something I posted.

I also think smack is a bit different between division foes, they play twice a year so you can always bank the games being important, kind of a perpetual war thing in my mind you know?

It's like the rest of the NFC North has an inferiority complex, they want to belive so hard that there team is on par with the Packers, and want so hard to make Packer fans feel down on their team, that they will find any meager shortcoming and cling to it for dear life, Packer fans take more #### then anyone else in the division, and half the time it HAS NOTHING to do with football.

Most Vikes fans dont even know how to talk crap and actually make it have something to do with football, all I hear is Wisconsin sucks, Packers fans are all inbread #### who have nothing better to do, etc etc. (Which is funny, because I live on the East coast and no one really anywhere sees any difference between Wisconsin and Minnesota.)
I bought a t-shirt that says "Friends don't let friends live in Wisconsin." :)
But when the Vikes/Bears actually DO accomplish something, or one up the Pack in any way, then all of a sudden there not afraid to beat there chest and talk as much #### as they can, until of course the Packers promptly kick there #### and establish there dominance per usual, then all the #### talking ceases and said fans run away back to the shadows. For once, I want to hear a Division Rival fan talk #### about something actually relevant to the game of Football, but they cant.

You want to know about Rah Rah? Go back to 09, all I heard was how great the Vikes were and how dumb the Packer were for letting Favre go, Vikings fans took any chance they could to remind Packer fans of there 2 matchups, and how the Vikes were the GOAT and how they were going to win the SB, Ive never seen so many Purple jerseys in my life, ever, and I doubt I ever will. Then, come 2010, after the Pack completly OWNED Favre and the Vikes, and then went and win the SB, all the Purple jerseys have retreated back to their homes, singing woe is me and trying to villainize the big mean Packers. (Newflash, you guys teamed up with Favre for the sole purpose of sticking it to us, you guys played the bad guy big time.)

Its the constant jelousy and hateful nonsense that the Vikes/Bears fans spew that make Packer fans beat there chest over the teams accomplishments, we dont look for the shortcomings of your team, just so we can reiterate them over and over and over in an attempt to make us feel better about our team, because we dont have to. Thats one of the biggest differences between our fanbases. If your team won back to back Super bowls in the next few years, and some Lions fan was giving you a bunch of moronic #### saying that "The Vikings only won because of the refs, the Vikings have no class, Vikings fans are all inbred pig farmers.." you would turn around and say "Hey, were undeniably better then you, and it will probably stay that way forever, so what are you talking #### for?"

BTW, didnt come here to troll or gloat just saw the Smack forums and decided to put it to good use. :D :D
Sounds like to me, you have some issues with some other people--and you are on here trying to take it out on Vikings fans, just because they are Vikings fans. lol.

And, I know people are ridiculous. I also know many Vikings fans can be ridiculous. I've spent the last 5+ years discussing football with them. I assure you, no Packers fan can talk crap about the Vikings better than a whine-baby Vikings fan can. lol. That is a fact. With that being said, at least we don't have to hear the "Ooooh. We won the Super Bowl, and you didn't!" Blah.

As far as stupid arguments, THAT is a stupid argument. It's not stupid the year of, or the year after, but beyond that, it's time to let it go. Guess what? It's time to let it go. It's time to go year-by-year now with the trash-talking. Makes sense to me.

There are always going to be fans of every team like that ... that doesn't mean a person should conform to the idiocy! lol

Yeah, I'm not saying that you're the one that said that stuff ... just defending my stance; bringing up wins from years past as a form of "smack" is lame.

No question about it! Though over the years I care less and less about the rivalry. Maybe it's a little bit because I've just grown past it ... but I think it has more to do with the way the NFL is structured ... the teams just change so much by the time you're bragging about your super bowl victory the team is probably already different. Give it 3-5 years and you might as well not even be talking about the same team.

Lol, I assure you my people skills are very good actually, in fact, probably one of my strong suits.

I was just using those years as examples to make my point. Im all about the present, but at the same time, you cant ignore history either, (Especially when you consider what might be old to you, is not nessicarily the case for others, hell I know Chiefs fans that would still brag about there one SB win.) as long as you can back it up with at least semi recent history, and my team and fanbase can. :P And rightly or wrongly, franchise are judged upon what they accomplished over the long haul, within reason of course, your not going to see me talking #### about how awesome Johnny "Blood" Mcnally was in the 30s. :lol:

Im just saying, The evil empire #### gets old real quick, lol. Ive talked about it with Steelers fans, Patriots fans, etc etc. When your team is the most succesful in your division, people are going to hate, and hate with a passion.

That might be true, because I hate the Packers, Steelers, and Patriots. lol. Throw the Bears and Saints in there--and you have my top five most-hated teams.

I wouldnt have a problem with the Patriots at all if they didnt have to cheat to win they're Lombardis, throw in the Tuck rule game for good measure. They seriously haven't ever won a SB without taping opposing teams signals lol.

Cant really hate the Steelers, there like the AFC Packers to me, have more Steeler fans buddies then any other team besides maybe the Packers, and on second thought I still have more Steeler friends. Lol

My brother is a Saints fan so I cant hate to much, I can understand why you hate them, but believe me, Favre would have choked the SB away anyways had you guys advanced.

Yep. Patriots just can't quite get it done without cheating. So sad. They get oh-so-close but just can't quite win it. Just a few signals short. lol.

Speaking of cheating--Saints. I don't even wanna discuss that game. As far as Favre choking, I'm not so sure. Not sure if he would have even been able to play. Sure. It's Favre. He would have played. Blah blah blah. Maybe--maybe not. They about killed him. If we had gone on, our injuries would have been a HUGE concern come Super Bowl time. That was our year--and the Saints, refs, and Football God cheated us, BUT--those injuries were killer. I don't want to be 0-5 in the Super Bowl. So, maybe--just maybe--it was okay we didn't go on. (Who am I kidding? I still cry about it. LOL jk) When we go again, I want to be 150% sure we are going to win it! lol. None of this 0-5 nonsense.

I just don't like the Steelers because I feel like they get a lot of favorable calls. Big Ben is annoying, too. He has character issues, too. But--we don't need to discuss that. :)

Actually, I AM a Packers owner. Got the paper to prove it.

Face it! Farve LOST more NFC championships tha he won! Including with the Packers. He could have RUN for a first for the Saints game. H could have taken a sack and you still had a shot at a FG. But no, he decided to throw a dumb pass.

Suck on that Packer fans.

Suck on the fact we have THIRTEEN NFL championships to your ONE, and our Superbowl trophy case is NOT empty.

Nope, doesn't bother me the least.
Still lead in Championships (Can't be gold every year!)
Still won FOUR Superbowls (A feat the Vikings have never achieved)
Still put YOUR team out of the playoffs just last year (You guys seem to forget that REAL fast!)
