football: 'Skins haha (this'll bring out the B'more guys on the board)

basketball: ANYONE but the Lakers or its bandwagon fans. I kind of like Miami or Detroit--but especially Miami. Caron Butler was truly horrible most of the season, but towards the post/playoffs he began getting double-doubles I also like Dwayne Wade (vs. liking Lebron). All pretty unique players, that most people don't know about. Detroit--well one guy, Rasheed Wallace. This is more than enough to make them competitive every year haha.

College Bball/Football: don't even need to ask, read my Location.

LOL... Yeah, football sucks, riiiight... A sport that changes it's rules from the regular season to the playoffs is much better... I like how you can lose a game in hockey , but still get a point... Too funny... Or how the old school hockey guys say "fighting is a part of the game"... LOL... No it's not ... If it was you wouldn't get penalized for it... The forward pass in football is part of the game- a fight in hockey is barbaric... That's why womens bowling attracts more viewers than Hockey... It's a backasswards sport run by lightweights...;-)
That being said: Let's go FLYERS !!!! Primeau for Conn Smythe....

it's all one's opinion, i was just giving mine. let me stress the point that im referring to american football, not soccer. You must be talking about viewers in the USA tho.

That being said, why hasnt anyone really mentioned a favourite soccer team?

Well 1) I don't play soccer. 2) I wouldn't feel qualified to answer that since I don't watch it enough/or at all.

That being said, Maryland Men's/Women's Soccer is nice

I'm talking about American football too... I actually almost coached A Canadien football team years ago & had come up with some pretty interseting ideas for the different rules... Never got the chance to use them though...
