the NFL and all other major league sports organizations represent nothing but the worst in corporate welfare as far as Im concerned.

The NFL needs LA a lot more then vice versa.

As per the rest of my quote, I wouldn't know it, because apparently LA isn't filled up with loud rednecks. That was sorta my point.

I agree that there are a lot of other things going on in LA besides sports, which is why it's such a fabulous city.

Yes, but besides that, go to a town where there's a buncha rednecks (SEE ALSO: Denver, Pittsburgh and I am sure MANY others qualify), and you will note that there's a HUGE following of sports teams, where people wear SPORTS JERSEYS (worst attire ever) to work, to plays, to sleep in, etc. Usually sports fanatics are loud and in your face about whatever team they like. I have seen people write s#!t on their cars, hang huge banners on their houses, and get into da#n near FISTFIGHTS over sports crap... If you haven't lived anywhere else, you wouldn't know how incredibly retarded sports fans are. It's really a pathetic display, you'd have to see it to believe it (You have. You've seen it. The FAT guy with his huge belly painted blue and yellow. He is the same kind of trailer-park dweller that yammers on his cell phone too loud, and hangs flags on his car for his favorite sports team to show you what a fan he is.) Retarded.

I go for the Rams because they were from L.A.....opposite of Raiders and their banger following, and my sign is the ram.

Not much of a football fan, could care less, but thats who I pick.
I also like the Redskins because Joe Gibbs and I am a big fan of Nascar and Joe Gibbs Racing with Tony Stewart, Denny Hamlin, JJ Yeley and now Kyle Busch...and young kid Joey Logano

I think American "football" should be called "futball" and European football should be called "football" in every country since it was the first to be called football and American football has almost nothing to do with the foot. As far as who do I root for, I go for the Raiders!

I grew up in the 1970's when the steel curtain could stop any opponent and believed that the Pittsburgh Steelers would go on to win the Super Bowl every year for decades to come. Although, my beliefs were proven to be false, I still cheer for the Steelers every chance I get.

My hubby loves the Broncos & the Packers... my father-in-law is a die-hard Rams fan (obviously die-hard if he is still a fan), and my brother-in-law is a loyal Chargers fan, but he grew up in SD.
