    It has been very rough for me these past 15 years but im ready to move on, I was a miami dolphins fan but by default, my father was a dolphins fan and i was born into it i have never had a choice to decide who I wanted to follow as a fan and i cant keep watching that train wreck hopeing that one day they start doing things like the pats! im not comeing over because of the wins im comeing because of how u guys go about your business season after season im hopeing for a warm reception! and this should be a proud moment for all pats fans one less fins fan around. Former Finheaven ID Papahotel no longer assosiated with them and all my dolphins gear has been boxed up and given to my dad! And there is a post under miami dolphins forum titled "thats it im gone, going to new england because if you cant beat em join em" stateing my resignation!

    I think when you're converted it will be tougher for you to be in to it as much or care as much as we do.....but I guess some people do it. Here's to you becoming a full blown diehard Pats fan :D

    Welcome aboard! You should get much more enjoyment watching and cheering for the Patriots.

    My son was a big Moss fan so when Moss was traded to the Pats it was awesome for me and my son to be watching and cheering for the same team. Now that Moss is gone my son is a bigger Patriots fan then a Moss fan so we are still having fun.

    It took the Steelers four decades to do what the Patriots will in 15 years. That's gotta suck.


    Oh, and welcome Ganoosh. You're coming from a situation that makes you say "...but, that just doesn't happen" in a negative way to one that makes you say it in a positive way.

    ... i dont think i have ever read anything as sad as this in my entire life !!!

    I dont agree with an earlier poster that called you a bandwagon fan ... a bandwagon fan could be a person that really was never a fan of anything but suddenly becomes a fan because of the Team's success.

    You my friend ... we have a word for fans like you ... we call em traitors.

    Im a Jets fan .. been one since 1984 ... ill can respect the Pats/Tom Brady ... even BB ... but ill never be a Pats fan.

    This is the worst kind of "Sports fan" that exists. "Hmmm, let me become a 'Pats Fan' right in the middle of the playoffs.."

    Lame.

    And You ......:confused: I've noticed the flood of new members in the last couple of months, its funny how one shiney new member can question another on band wagonism.

    Yeah i can understand more people joining up the team is doing great. But when your first post is calling someone out for their timing on joining its more than a little hypocritical. In the last year there have been a lot of new faces such as yourself, but you (for example) couldn't have seen this season turning out the way it has back in sep.

    Engine 1 (as in Fireman Ed) is quite obviously a Jets fan that decided to come here and troll with the Pats playing the Jets this week. He's resurrecting one old thread after another attempting to defend the Jets / bait Pats fans into tired old stereotypical smack talk.

    Are you sure you didn't come over so you could put the letter E in the middle of easy-to-spell words that don't contain a letter E?

    By the way...how do you just quit being a fan of one team and switch to another team? I mean how can you even do that? Use the Ottawa Senators for example. Ottawa is about 4 hours from Toronto and 2.5 hours from Montreal. People in that area cheered for Montreal and Toronto and the real, worthwhile fans still do. But then you had these people who decided that because they lvie closer to Ottawa, they would cut ties with Toronto and Montreal and become Sens fans. How can someone do that? How can you feel that it is OK? A lot of the fans who held out through the Leafs and Canadians struggles finally made the switch to the Sens after they made consistent deep playoff runs in the mid-2000s.

    Switching teams is dispicable. You're a front-runner, and if the Pats struggle, you'll find an excuse to cheer for a different team. Brutal....absolutely brutal. I imagine there are many true Pats fans out there who don't want you.

    I can't believe that I'm agreeing with the Jets fans in this thread. :bricks:

    Sorry, buddy. I'm sure you're a great guy. You certainly sound like it. But, IMO, I don't think there's any excuse for switching teams that you grew up a fan of. Especially to a team that's within the division.
