Post Vikings Fan Base—Which other teams do you like and hate?
Which teams do you root for the most, and hate to see win, the most?

Me: Vikings and Chargers(California team I watched before Sunday Ticket) the most

Against Packers, New England(especially during the cheating scandals/ Brady era), Cowboys
(Jerry Jones, Vikings history with team, criminal players)

Really for me outside of the Vikings there is no team that I have cheered for over a long period of time. The only teams that I cheer for outside of the Vikings are ones that have players I like on them, and if that particular player leaves the team then I lose interest.

For example I really like the Chargers too, but once Philip Rivers and Antonio Gates are gone, I won't cheer for them anymore, and my interest might shift to some other AFC team. I used to really like the Texans when they had Owen Daniels, Andre Johnson, and Matt Schaub had a couple 4,000+ yard seasons but now i don't cheer for them at all.

This for me is the difference between Vikings and everyone else. I will cheer for the Vikings until the day I die, regardless of what players they have on the roster, whereas my preference for any other team changes depending on that team's roster.

One AFC team I'm excited about is the Raiders. Derek Carr and Amari Cooper could help them form a great nucleus upon which they could thrive.

If I had to pick another NFC team? Maybe the Cardinals. I would cheer for them because they're still underdogs even though they're pretty good. I feel bad for Carson Palmer, think he is underrated, and has had bad luck with injuries. And of course really like Fitz. Bruce Arians seems like a good coach too.

Hated teams are easy. Everyone else in the NFC North. Hate the Saints, Seahawks. From the AFC, I basically hate the Ravens and Steelers because they're on TV all the fricken time. I would appreciate some diversity in the AFC television schedule please.

I hate the Vikings, Patriots, Cowboys and (Starting more recently) the Bears. When your Vikings are kicking #### it makes me damn near physically ill.

I always enjoyed the Bills and Jets as well, I would love to see the Bills especially turn things around.

In the NFC? Well it was the Seahawks when they had Holmgren and Hasslebeck. This particular season I honestly find myself following the Vikings even more then I have in the past, but that is mainly because I think you guys gave a talented young squad, and are the biggest challenge within the division other then the Packers.

I moved this to NFL Talk since it's basically about teams other than the Vikes. It's a good thread idea though, Ken!

I root against the Packers, Cowboys, Eagles, Redskins and Seahawks.

Other than the Vikings, I often root for underdog teams, teams that have been down for a while and are working their way back up. For the most part, I like to see variety in who wins in the NFL. For example, I loved it when the Cardinals reached the Super Bowl several years ago and even though I've never liked the Raiders much, I find myself liking the current team.

I liked the Bucs when they entered the league but I miss their old uniforms and helmets. I still like it when they do well and I was happy when they won the Super Bowl.

I hated the Bears when growing up but years of being surrounded by friends and loved ones who are Bears fans, living in Chicago, seeing the team play for decades, etc. has softened me on them and I enjoy following the team. I always root against them when they play the Vikes or when it's in the Vikings best interests.

I like the Patriots because I admire how well-coached they are and I really enjoy watching Brady play. He's one of the best quarterbacks I've ever seen.

I root against the Chiefs (except with Chase Daniel and J-Mac 2 former Mizzou Tigers it is hard), Packers, Eagles, and Browns.

I used to like the Seahawks since they were the mini-Vikings, but not too much anymore since the first super bowl.

I usually cheer for teams that have former Mizzou Tigers, or players that I really like. I would really like to see the Raiders take control the AFC West.

I'm noticing a trend.

Against fudgies (green*** fudge packers, AKA pukers), cowgirls, cheattle PEDhawks (sea chickens), sh*tsburg squeelers, washupton deadskins and sh*tcago barfs.

Living in NY I root for jets, bills and occasionally the Gnats, Eli is seriously too hard to watch in my opinion. Also the Bengals.

The patriots are far from my favorite but I don't hate them either, however not a fan of the favoritism they receive either.

I always root against the Pack, but I do have respect for the "fan ownership", irritatingly consistent great ability to find and keep great talent, etc.
I cannot stand the Bears and respect NOTHING about them, they are a joke of a team for a world-class city.
Will never root for Pittsburg as long as they have a wanna-be rapist for a QB, same is true for the Ravens who seem to love hiring classless thugs.

Its hard not to enjoy watching the Pats....they are in a class of their own and its not because they cheat. Maybe they do but its sad if true because they are too good to need to cheat. When my Vikes are having a crappy year and performing poorly, I can always watch the Pats and hope that someday my team is THAT good.

Dont really need to point out that Vikes are always #1 with me......

Root For:
Vikings (first and foremost, Purple and Gold until I die)
Seahawks (born and raised in Anchorage, AK I got Seattle games every Sunday, and they're essentially my home town team)

Root Against:
Packers (Duh)
Bears (duh)
Saints (hate them and their city)
Falcons (ugh! '98, plus I went to college in Fort Valley GA so I grew to dislike the falcons just due to all my friends liking them)

Post Re: Vikings Fan Base—Which other teams do you like and hate?
The only other team that I'm mostly positive towards is the Patriots. I followed Moss there and I have a friend who's a by Patriots fan. I hate to lose to them, but I'm fine with them beating everybody else.

I obviously loathe the Packers, and the Saints are number two (and of course, my fiancé's family is Saints fans).

I'm neutral towards the Bears because that was my dad's team, and the Lions have been a joke for too long to be a team to get to worked up over.

Vikings, then Bills (love those teams back in the 90s). I like San Diego, I feel so bad for Phillip Rivers, he has nothing to work with.

I hate GB of course, and DET and CHI are not far behind. I am sick of the attention Dallas gets despite the fact that they usually suck. It was so bad at one point a few years ago, I was happy when Green Bay came back and beat them in Dallas a couple of years ago.

I cheer for no one else. I may temporarily root for a team if it benefits the Vikings but that's about it. I hope the Titans do well due to the hometown connection with Mariota but I still don't cheer for them.

I can't stand the Packers or Patriots. Otherwise I don't much care. I usually want to see afc teams beat nfc teams due to playoff implications. I like seeing other nfc north teams lose for the same reason.

That's about my situation. Back when I started getting into football in the late 80s I also liked the 49ers quite a bit but that has eroded over time. I usually cheer for teams that are going against teams I dislike (Saints, Cowboys, Packers, Bears) and may cheer for individual players I respect (Woodson, Steve Smith Sr., etc.). But it's really all Vikings.

I am a Peyton Manning fan so I have cheered for the Colts and Broncos. I would like to see him win another SB unless they are playing the Vikes of course! I enjoy watching football and will cheer for the underdog unless it does not benefit the Vikes or if that underdog is one of these team: Packers, Seahawks, Cowboys or the Patriots.

Yeah Cowboys seem to be consistent hated team among Vikings fans

I would say Cowboys, Packers, Patriots, Bears, and Seahawk's are the Vikings fans
most hated teams

Post Re: Vikings Fan Base—Which other teams do you like and hate?
It is almost always situational for me. If a team winning or losing helps the Vikings get into the playoffs. If a team has a player that I like on it (or is on my fantasy team) I tend to root for them. I end up cheering against Detroit, Chicago, and Green Bay so often it's sort of ingrained but even then I find myself being more interested in those teams because I'm more familiar with the players on them. Out of those teams I tend to dislike Green Bay the most. Though, my disdain for them has gone down since Favre left. I hated him being on the Vikings.

If it doesnt hurt the Vikings, I like seeing the Chargers and Seattle win. I went to more Seattle games then Vikings I think when I was younger, a lot of relatives out their.

Cant stand the Packers, Pats, Saints or Eagles. A Packers loss isnt as good as a Vikings win is, but its still a lot of fun.

I did too (surprise!).

I saw quite a few Vikes fans wearing Vikings Favre jerseys at the Bears game on Sunday and I told my friend that it was the Vikes jersey equivalent of walking out of the bathroom with toilet paper stuck to your shoe. It's just embarrassing for everybody. ;)

Vikings are my only first and true love. The only other team I might give a woop for is the Jags as they are over here (International series) every year playing like rubbish (actually won for a change this year tho).

My big hates are Bears, Packers, Pats, Eagles as well as the more followed teams over here in the UK (so Steelers, 49ers and Seahawks) .

Its shameful but I've only ever seen us play in the flesh once and that was when they came over for the Wembley game in 2013.

Planning on flying over next year for my first real Vikings game. But NFL gamepass and the international series games will have to do for now.

Hey, I live in the states and I've only been able to go once. There's nothing shameful about it.

Cheers, it must be a Uk fan thing. Some fans over here are rather elitist if you cannot see your team a few times a year you are not a proper fan and all that pfft. But these are the same guys that moan about new fans so should be ignored

Sadly work, mortgage and life get in the way aha

I dislike the Seahawks and have a soft spot for the Jags, other than that I'm indifferent to most other teams although I'm happy to root for anyone if it will help out the Vikes.

Same for me, although I live in the Northern Isles of Scotland so even getting down to London is a fair old trek.

Was hoping that the Vikes would be coming back to Wembley next year (I know that we have an away game to Jacksonville, so that was a possible London game) but since that's not happening then I'll have to keep saving for a trip to the US.
