So should I root for Cincinnati's division rivals, or the team who's beaten them at their only Super Bowl appearances? I'm pretty torn, and I thought you lot could help me pick a side. GO!

As a Redskins fan, I'm rooting against Baltimore fans, probably the single most annoying fanbase in the league outside of the Dallas-Fort Worth Area.

Edit: also, screw Haloti Ngata.

A fellow Redskins fan, grew up in the DC area.  To me Ravens' fans aren't too bad, to me the worst fan base is Phily.  For the past few years the only saving grace that team had was Andy Reid.  Now that he is in Kansas City I can fully justify my hate for the Eagles.  Die eagles die...
Hey, watch it, buddy! >:( That's Chip Kelly's team now. :police:

Kelly will be running back to collegiate level after the fans in Phily chew him up and spit him out.

Good point.  Philly isn't exactly known as a warm, inviting place with a rabidly loyal fan base.  If he ain't good, real good and fast, real fast, he might be in for a rough tour of duty.  Time will tell.

The Braves are attempting to acquire Justin Upton.  This would be big for us.  We already landed his brother.  (wasnt particularly excited about that deal...)

If we get him, you can look for us in the World Series.

Yea, a lot of people feel that way... Ha!

Good point, let me further qualify my statement.

The Ravens fans are the most annoying outside of our opponent fanbases in the NFC East.

"[At] around the same time Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o claims he learned he was part of an Internet-related hoax, at least four Redskins players also became aware of their own role in a completely separate, coincidentally timed and ultimately less harmful saga of false online identities.

NFL.com has learned that NFL security conducted an investigation into a situation involving a woman, known by the pseudonym Sidney Ackerman, who used pictures of an Internet adult entertainer, C.J. Miles, to establish dialogues with pro athletes.
....
Unlike Te'o, none of the Redskins players involved became emotionally attached to "Ackerman," instead pursuing her out of nothing more than physical appeal, sources close to the situation said."

"The woman whose picture was used to create Manti Te'o's fake girlfriend has been identified, but the voice of the woman who had hours of late night phone calls with the Notre Dame star has remained silent. Turns out that's because it reportedly was a man."

The voice that charmed and tormented star linebacker Manti Te'o, probably belonged to a woman, according to four forensic audio experts consulted by ABC News.

That conclusion comes as the New York Post reported that unnamed relatives of Ronaiah Tuiasosopo – the man Te'o says was behind the hoax – say they believe the voice of Te'o's fictitious girlfriend Lennay Kekua belonged to a [female] cousin of Ronaiah's named Tino Tuiasosopo.

Really four forensic audio experts for this hoax?

The story continues into Thursday:

Quote
In an interview with Dr. Phil McGraw that will air Thursday, Ronaiah Tuiasosopo says the voice of Manti Te'o girlfriend Lennay Kekua was his and that the star Notre Dame linebacker had no role in the hoax.
....
McGraw said Tuiasosopo told him he fell deeply in love with Te'o and that for Tuiasosopo it was a romantic relationship.

"Here we have a young man that fell deeply, romantically in love," McGraw told NBC. "I asked him straight up, 'Was this a romantic relationship with you?' And he says yes. I said, 'Are you then therefore gay?' And he said, 'When you put it that way, yes.' And then he caught himself and said, 'I am confused.' "

The Manti incident as case-study for Mormon dating culture:

Quote
It requires little stretch of the imagination to see the benefits of an online relationship for someone in Te'o's position. The voice on the other end of the telephone line offered emotional support but reduced temptations. This girl could be his biggest fan without becoming his biggest distraction. And, perhaps more importantly, a relationship conducted over the phone and Internet could move at a pace suitable for a shy Mormon young man.

Leaving room for this fuller vision of Te'o's motivation, reporters and readers alike may be able to move beyond assertions of stupidity to a kinder conclusion of naïve innocence.

Laurie Maffly-Kipp, a Mormon scholar and professor at the University of North Carolina, wrote in an email, "As for Te'o, his naivete, if that is what it was, does not surprise me. There is certainly a value attached to innocence at the time of marriage for the LDS church."

So should I root for Cincinnati's division rivals, or the team who's beaten them at their only Super Bowl appearances? I'm pretty torn, and I thought you lot could help me pick a side. GO!

As a Redskins fan, I'm rooting against Baltimore fans, probably the single most annoying fanbase in the league outside of the Dallas-Fort Worth Area.

Edit: also, screw Haloti Ngata.

Why? He is a great player.

If it makes you feel any better, I actually like the Pirates.  I feel bad for them.  Theyve had a rough go at it ever since that day... I guess the Braves are responsible.
