    How many of you here are Giant fans too?

    Football is different than baseball. If you are a Met's fan--you hate the yankees and vice versa.. But that usually isn't the case with Jets and Giants.. I have family who are fans of both teams equally (I think that is weird but okay)... Just wondering how many people here are Giants fans as well?

    If you're a fan of two teams, you're a fan of no teams.

    Yes.

    By definition, a fan is a "fanatic". You can casually root for as many teams as you want, but if you truly think you're a FAN then there's only room for one . . .

    I agree. It don't mind seeing the Giants win, but I live and die with the Jets. I think I have mellowed towards the Giants since I moved out to Chicago and I don't have to live with Giant fans. The Bears have replaced them -- I hate to see the Bears win cuz I have to deal with their fans on Monday mornings.

    The Giants and there fans suck, especially Mike Francesa. Is that clear enough?

    Yes grown men can only be loyal to one team. We all know Sorry, and Giant Dan are closet Giant fans, but they are children. Unless you are admitting to this yourself then those are the only ones I know of.

    For the most part, people aren't Giants fans. But, if you are curious, I believe I did a poll about this like a year or two ago. Search for it. I think I had a bet with my friend so I did the poll.

    That has actually softened my hatred for the giants but for the most part I just can't route for the giants to win

    People who root for the Jets and the giants wont be hanging out at JI, there just not hard core enough.

    Personally I like a lot of NFL teams, I was a Dolphin and a Bills fan before I was ever a Jet fan, but for most there comes a time when you have to commit.

    Being from the Midwest, I never had anything against the Giants.


    Until I joined this site.

    So who do you root for when they play each other? Let's not forget the year of Cruz when they were about to fire their coach and one play made their future and destroyed ours.

    What was going on in your living room that day?

    Only when they play the Pats in the SB. Then, yes... guilty of jumping to the other side of the aisle.

    For good reason.

    Jets fan no doubt, but if the Giants are on the tv against mostly anyone, other than the Jets of course, I do root for them. Family roots for them, so want them to be happy even if my team sucked most of the time. Since Woody bought them, they've definitely been far better, so the hazing when we play each other is not so brutal anymore.
