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.RandallioCobb18 wrote:
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?
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.
Being proud of your team winning the super bowl and bragging about it as if you were on the team are two different things.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.
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.
