Title says it all. Here is a trend I have been finding. People that are just fans of one team (usually the home team) WANT to see the Miami Dolphins lose out or could care less. People that are fans of the NFL in general want to see the Miami Dolphins win A GAME. To define "NFL fans" these are the people that do not just cheer or root for ONE team (their team). They follow the NFL, follow other players in the league, like to see certain players succeed (or fail). They have a favorite team but I see them as a more "balanced fan". I am not equating NFL knowledge with what I defined as "NFL Fan". You can be very knowledgeable of the NFL but if you only care about the one team I can't label you the balanced NFL fan. I recently found out a close friend of mine was not really an NFL fan but only a Browns fan even though he is extremely knowledgeable of the NFL and their players. I found out by asking him this question! I will say Fantasy Football made me a more balanced NFL fan...he is slowing starting to change too because of FF. Anyways just vote. lol.
