Title: Championship Rooting Interest Record
Post by: Illiniwek on January 24, 2017, 07:26:41 pm
ExtremeRepublican gave me an idea. What is your history for rooting interest in championship games (or series), going back as far as you have followed the sport? I will do mine in other sports, but will start with Super Bowls.

2016: Panthers (v. Broncos) L
2015: Patriots (v. Seahawks) W
2014: Seahawks (v. Broncos) W
2013: Ravens (v. 49ers) W
2012: Patriots (v. Giants) L
2011: Steelers (v. Packers) L
2010: Saints (v. Colts) W
2009: Cardinals (v. Steelers) L
2008: Giants (v. Patriots) W
2007: Bears (v. Colts) L
2006: Seahawks (v. Steelers) L
2005: Eagles (v. Patriots) L
2004: Patriots (v. Panthers) W
2003: Buccaneers (v. Raiders) W
2002: Patriots (v. Rams) W

Super Bowl Record: 8-7

Feel free to do your Super Bowl record or any other sport.

If the Steelers are in it, I'm for them, if the Patsies, Ratbirds or Raiders are in it, I'm against them.  I don't care who wins the other games.

Bolded teams I rooted for, green for victories, red for losses. This is as far back as I can remember, although I know I at least watched some Super Bowls before this, since I definitely remember being horrified, horrified as a nine year old, not even noticing Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunction.

XLI: Colts vs. Bears

XLIII: Steelers vs. Cardinals

Born in the mid-1990s, sports memory goes back to the early-2000s.
NFL (5-10 record, 5-8 when I legitimately care):
2017: Falcons (vs. Patriots, L)
2016: Broncos (vs. Panthers, W)
2015: Patriots (vs. Seahawks, W)
2014: Broncos (vs. Seahawks, L)
2013: Ravens (vs. 49ers, W)
2012: Patriots (vs. Giants, L)- FAIRLY NEUTRAL
2011: Steelers (vs. Packers, L)- FAIRLY NEUTRAL
2010: Colts (vs. Saints, L)
2009: Steelers (vs. Cardinals, W)
2008: Patriots (vs. Giants, L)
2007: Colts (vs. Bears, W)
2006: Seahawks (vs. Steelers, L)- I messed this up in the other one, because I would be the opposite if that matchup happened today
2005: Eagles (vs. Patriots, L)
2004: Panthers (vs. Patriots, L)
2003: Raiders (vs. Buccaneers, L)

College Football (using seasons, not years of the game) (6-5, 3-3 in the era when I have really cared):
2016: Alabama (vs. Clemson, L)
2015: Alabama (vs. Clemson, W)
2014: Oregon (vs. Ohio St., L)
2013: Auburn (vs. Florida St., L)
2012: Alabama (vs. Notre Dame, W)
2011: Alabama (vs. LSU, W)
---Before this point, I was only a casual CFB fan and would root for whoever I picked in my bowl contest---
2010: Auburn (vs. Oregon, W)
2009: Alabama (vs. Texas, W)
2008: Probably Florida (vs. Oklahoma, W)
2007: Ohio St. (vs. LSU, L)

2006: Probably Florida (vs. UCLA, W)
2005: Illinois (vs. UNC, L)
2004: Georgia Tech (vs. UConn, L)
I remember the 2002 and 2003 tournaments, but I must have lost interest when Duke (my childhood team) lost, because I don't have any firsthand recollection of the ends.

NBA Finals:(Green if the team i rooted for won , red if the team i rooted for lost, and winner will be on left)

2003: Spurs vs Nets
2004: Pistons vs Lakers
2005: Spurs vs Pistons
2006: Heat vs Mavs
2007: Spurs vs Cavs
2008: Celtics vs Lakers

2012: Heat vs Thunder
2013: Heat vs Spurs
2014: Spurs vs Heat
2015: Warriors vs Cavs
2016: Cavs vs Warriors

Reason I rooted for warriors in 2015 and not 2016 is cause lebron already won the title before and in 2016 I began to dislike the warriors

So for NBA im : 9-5

Superbowl:

2006: Steelers vs Seahawks
2007: Colts vs Bears
2008: Giants vs Patriots
2009: Steelers vs Cardinals
2010: Saints vs Colts
2011: Packers vs Steelers
2012: Giants vs Patriots
2013: Ravens vs 49ers(was pretty nuetral about this one but since former duck star Lamicheal James was on 49ers i rooted for them)
2014: Seahawks vs Broncos
2015: Patriots vs Seahawks
2016: Broncos vs Panthers

So Im 4-7 for superbowls

this year i am

2017: Falcons vs Patriots

2013: despised both, but if forced to pick, Auburn (L)
2012: Notre Dame (L)

2010: Oregon (L) - at this point I stopped just knee-jerk cheering for the SEC every time

In Australia, "rooting" means intercourse, so what exactly is this?

In US English, it generally means which team you are hoping will win a game.  So, it's our preferred champion out of the final two teams in each sport over the years.

Born in 1990, and my sporting memories regarding championships started between 2000 and 2003.

Super Bowl:
2000: Rams-Titans: W
2001: no rooting interest
2002: Rams-Cheatriots: L
2003: no rooting interest
2004: Panthers-Cheatriots: L
2005: Eagles-Cheatriots: L
2006: Steelers-Seahawks: W (easy call, because of the combo of being a Steeler fan and an ardent Seachicken hater from my Rams fan days)
2007: Bears-Colts: L
2008: Giants-Cheatriots: L (lone exception to the no rooting for New England rule)
2009: Steelers-Cardinals: W (rooted for Steelers, but would've been fine with the Kurt Warner-led Cardinals getting a ring)
2010: Saints-Colts: W
2011: Steelers-Packers: L
2012: Giants-Cheatriots: W
2013: 49ers-Ratbirds: W (I was a Rams fan at the time, so rooting for Baltimore was practical at that moment and disliked the 49ers. If such a Super Bowl matchup materializes ever again, I'd pull for the 49ers because of my Steelers fandom)
2014: Broncos-Seahawks: L
2015: Boycotted the Super Bowl over the Cheatriots v. Seachickens playing each other and couldn't root for either team in good conscience.

2018: Eagles-Cheatriots: W
2019: Boycotted the Super Bowl over the Rams v. Cheatriots playing each other and couldn't root for either team in good conscience over Kroenke and the repeated SB appearances of Brady and Co.
2020:
NOTE: With the exception of the Patriots' unbeaten streak attempt, I rooted against the Patriots. During the time that the Rams were in St. Louis, they were my #1 team. Now, the Steelers fill that role.

Updated:
Born in the mid-1990s, sports memory goes back to the early-2000s.
NFL (6-10 record, 6-8 when I legitimately care):
2017/8: Eagles (vs. Patriots, W)
2016/7: Falcons (vs. Patriots, L)
2015/6: Broncos (vs. Panthers, W)
2014/5: Patriots (vs. Seahawks, W)
2013/4: Broncos (vs. Seahawks, L)
2012/3: Ravens (vs. 49ers, W)
2011/2: Patriots (vs. Giants, L)- FAIRLY NEUTRAL
2010/1: Steelers (vs. Packers, L)- FAIRLY NEUTRAL
2009/10: Colts (vs. Saints, L)
2008/9: Steelers (vs. Cardinals, W)
2007/8: Patriots (vs. Giants, L)
2006/7: Colts (vs. Bears, W)
2005/6: Seahawks (vs. Steelers, L)- I messed this up in the other one, because I would be the opposite if that matchup happened today
2004/5: Eagles (vs. Patriots, L)
2003/4: Panthers (vs. Patriots, L)
2002/3: Raiders (vs. Buccaneers, L)

College Football (using seasons, not years of the game) (7-5, 4-3 in the era when I have really cared):
2017: Alabama (vs. Georgia, W, relatively happy either way since it was SEC vs. SEC)
2016: Alabama (vs. Clemson, L)
2015: Alabama (vs. Clemson, W)
2014: Oregon (vs. Ohio St., L)
2013: Auburn (vs. Florida St., L)
2012: Alabama (vs. Notre Dame, W)
2011: Alabama (vs. LSU, W)
---Before this point, I was only a casual CFB fan and would root for whoever I picked in my bowl contest---
2010: Auburn (vs. Oregon, W)
2009: Alabama (vs. Texas, W)
2008: Probably Florida (vs. Oklahoma, W)
2007: Ohio St. (vs. LSU, L)
2006: Ohio St. (vs. Florida, L)

CBB (7-7):
2018: Villanova (vs. Michigan, am not happy with the matchup, but Nova's style is more fun)
2017: Gonzaga (vs. UNC, L (reluctantly))
2016: Villanova (vs. UNC, W)
2015: Duke (vs. Wisconsin, W)
2014: Connecticut (vs. Kentucky, W)

2006: Probably Florida (vs. UCLA, W)
2005: Illinois (vs. UNC, L)
2004: Georgia Tech (vs. UConn, L)
I remember the 2002 and 2003 tournaments, but I must have lost interest when Duke (my childhood team) lost, because I don't have any firsthand recollection of the ends.

MLB (7-8):
2017: Astros (vs. Dodgers, W)

Updated- hopefully I win in college baseball this year, but I just went to a devastating Game 1 loss in a super-regional
Born in the mid-1990s, sports memory goes back to the early-2000s.
NFL (6-10 record, 6-8 when I legitimately care):
2017/8: Eagles (vs. Patriots, W)
2016/7: Falcons (vs. Patriots, L)
2015/6: Broncos (vs. Panthers, W)
2014/5: Patriots (vs. Seahawks, W)
2013/4: Broncos (vs. Seahawks, L)
2012/3: Ravens (vs. 49ers, W)
2011/2: Patriots (vs. Giants, L)- FAIRLY NEUTRAL
2010/1: Steelers (vs. Packers, L)- FAIRLY NEUTRAL
2009/10: Colts (vs. Saints, L)
2008/9: Steelers (vs. Cardinals, W)
2007/8: Patriots (vs. Giants, L)
2006/7: Colts (vs. Bears, W)
2005/6: Seahawks (vs. Steelers, L)- I messed this up in the other one, because I would be the opposite if that matchup happened today
2004/5: Eagles (vs. Patriots, L)
2003/4: Panthers (vs. Patriots, L)
2002/3: Raiders (vs. Buccaneers, L)

College Football (using seasons, not years of the game) (7-5, 4-3 in the era when I have really cared):
2017: Alabama (vs. Georgia, W, relatively happy either way since it was SEC vs. SEC)
2016: Alabama (vs. Clemson, L)
2015: Alabama (vs. Clemson, W)
2014: Oregon (vs. Ohio St., L)
2013: Auburn (vs. Florida St., L)
2012: Alabama (vs. Notre Dame, W)
2011: Alabama (vs. LSU, W)
---Before this point, I was only a casual CFB fan and would root for whoever I picked in my bowl contest---
2010: Auburn (vs. Oregon, W)
2009: Alabama (vs. Texas, W)
2008: Probably Florida (vs. Oklahoma, W)
2007: Ohio St. (vs. LSU, L)
2006: Ohio St. (vs. Florida, L)

CBB (8-7):
2018: Villanova (vs. Michigan, am not happy with the matchup, but Nova's style is more fun, W)
2017: Gonzaga (vs. UNC, L (reluctantly))
2016: Villanova (vs. UNC, W)
2015: Duke (vs. Wisconsin, W)
2014: Connecticut (vs. Kentucky, W)
2013: Michigan (vs. Louisville, L)
2012: Kansas (vs. Kentucky, L)

2010: Duke (vs. Butler, W)
2009: Michigan St. (vs. UNC, L)
2008: Kansas (vs. Memphis, W)
2007: Probably Florida (vs. Ohio St., W)
2006: Probably Florida (vs. UCLA, W)
2005: Illinois (vs. UNC, L)
2004: Georgia Tech (vs. UConn, L)
I remember the 2002 and 2003 tournaments, but I must have lost interest when Duke (my childhood team) lost, because I don't have any firsthand recollection of the ends.

MLB (7-8):
2017: Astros (vs. Dodgers, W)

Didn't really have a strong opinion on the 2017 World Series, both teams were fine, like in 2005. Record still 3-6.

NBA:

Favored Cleveland both times obviously, both times lost. Record down to 5-7.

Combination of these is 14-20, or 15-20 if the 2014 world cup final is counted.

Happy to have Cubs, Bulls, White Sox and Warriors as champs. Want Dodgers to rid the curse.

Born in the mid-1990s, sports memory goes back to the early-2000s.
NFL (6-10 record, 6-8 when I legitimately care):
2018/9: Illegitimate Super Bowl; Rams (vs. Patriots, TBD)
2017/8: Eagles (vs. Patriots, W)
2016/7: Falcons (vs. Patriots, L)
2015/6: Broncos (vs. Panthers, W)
2014/5: Patriots (vs. Seahawks, W)
2013/4: Broncos (vs. Seahawks, L)
2012/3: Ravens (vs. 49ers, W)
2011/2: Patriots (vs. Giants, L)- FAIRLY NEUTRAL
2010/1: Steelers (vs. Packers, L)- FAIRLY NEUTRAL
2009/10: Colts (vs. Saints, L)
2008/9: Steelers (vs. Cardinals, W)
2007/8: Patriots (vs. Giants, L)
2006/7: Colts (vs. Bears, W)
2005/6: Seahawks (vs. Steelers, L)- I messed this up in the other one, because I would be the opposite if that matchup happened today
2004/5: Eagles (vs. Patriots, L)
2003/4: Panthers (vs. Patriots, L)
2002/3: Raiders (vs. Buccaneers, L)

College Football (using seasons, not years of the game) (7-6, 4-4 in the era when I have really cared):
2018: Alabama (vs. Clemson, L)
2017: Alabama (vs. Georgia, W, relatively happy either way since it was SEC vs. SEC)
2016: Alabama (vs. Clemson, L)
2015: Alabama (vs. Clemson, W)
2014: Oregon (vs. Ohio St., L)
2013: Auburn (vs. Florida St., L)
2012: Alabama (vs. Notre Dame, W)
2011: Alabama (vs. LSU, W)
---Before this point, I was only a casual CFB fan and would root for whoever I picked in my bowl contest---
2010: Auburn (vs. Oregon, W)
2009: Alabama (vs. Texas, W)
2008: Probably Florida (vs. Oklahoma, W)
2007: Ohio St. (vs. LSU, L)
2006: Ohio St. (vs. Florida, L)

CBB (8-7):
2018: Villanova (vs. Michigan, am not happy with the matchup, but Nova's style is more fun, W)
2017: Gonzaga (vs. UNC, L (reluctantly))
2016: Villanova (vs. UNC, W)

2006: Probably Florida (vs. UCLA, W)
2005: Illinois (vs. UNC, L)
2004: Georgia Tech (vs. UConn, L)
I remember the 2002 and 2003 tournaments, but I must have lost interest when Duke (my childhood team) lost, because I don't have any firsthand recollection of the ends.
