    I couldn't agree with you more re Tebow, LoserSlick, although I say that figuring I'll get flamed, lol.

    One thing I'm noticing about this thread you started is that it contains a bunch of thoughtful, well-reasoned and polite posts. I'm enjoying that. I'm also noticing there appear to be a few women coming out of the woodwork to contribute. Sometimes I think us girls get lost in the testosterone.

    And Can, to answer your question about college players, yep, the guys I follow in college, I continue to follow them in the pros. I like to see them do well. It makes me *interested* in their pro teams, and that doesn't affect my Broncos "fandom" one bit. Actually when I'm paying attention to what other teams are doing, it makes me a more knowledgeable fan.... more aware of what's happening outside of Dove Valley and Mile High.
    I get ya.

    My point behind asking the question wasn't to suggest that folks would go 100% behind their favs from college, rather than the fact they may actually follow another team more closely.....which is absolutely fine by me. The issue I have is when folks say they are dedicated to The Borncos (or whichever team they follow) and take little interest in anyone else. That's dullsville for me, especially when your fav is out of the playoffs. For me, it's cool to have a 2nd fav and a 3rd fav, and so on. That has nothing to do with lack of commitment to one team.

    And though slightly off topic, I enjoy sports and any type of contest when I like one team / player more than another. It makes for good entertainment for me. Therefore it's cool to like other teams, even if designated as high as "2nd favourite". If I didn't like other teams, it would greatly reduce my interest in watching all the games I do. Neutrality sucks in my books!!!

    Eh, I was given the opportunity to get to know John on a personal level and there are numerous stories on the other side of the spectrum. Everyone has their flaws and handles situations poorly if they are having a rough day or provoked but he is only human, at least off the football field.

The last time I pulled for New England in a game was in their first Super Bowl against the Rams because I was tired of hearing about Kurt Warner knowing any decent QB could put up #'s in that system.

    Whether the Broncos & Colts cross paths in the Super Bowl or next year in Indy, the Broncos will not be able to score enough points to satisfy my distaste of Jim Irsay and his franchise.
    I think I love you...

    but I never meant any harm, great to have you here :thumb:

    Great post - but as far as that last part, that is not at all what I wanted. We're all Broncos fans and the last thing I want is to instigate petty back-and-forth fandom contests between any of us.

    I made this thread for two reasons: 1), I'm scared that a Colts/Broncos post-season match-up is looming around the corner and wanted to get some stuff out in the air beforehand, rather than when we're raging these forums at half-time and emotions are running high. And 2), we are (or "were," I guess) extremely passionate fans over in Indy--like not in an Eagles-fan kind of way, but in the way you'll discover through the narrative of my posts in this thread. Wanted to make this clear so nobody gets rubbed the wrong way when we go PFM-crazy all over these boards (...because of the whole Tebow thing).

    I wanted to make most of my points in the original post, but a lot of them I couldn't address because they required feedback for me to respond to. - and reading through them to fully grasp where I'm coming from is probably tedious to say the least. Sorry for that.

    Good stuff though. Couldn't be happier with the feedback and I'm glad we're all on the same page for the most part.

    Broncos are where it's at :thumb:

    -Case closed-

    I honestly stopped coming around because it would make me so angry. I couldn't stand reading some of things being written about John Elway and it was cancerous... Some Bronco fans were starting to buy into it. It was just weird up in here.

    I'm glad Tebow is gone and the world is back to normal. We can actually talk about FOOTBALL...something that got lost during the Tebow era.

    So far it's been a great season and I'm enjoying this ride!

    Anyhow, I don't really think we can relate to Indy fans. It really is kind of new for them. Some of us were around before Elway and some were here cheering for a losing team year after year. Our culture is quite different.

    Look at everyone getting all high and mighty with the "once a fan, always a fan" speech. If Elway left in the mid 90s, I'm sure plenty would have followed him.
