I'm a Leicester City football fan so obviously very happy and overwhelmed right now, born and bred Leicester so that is my allegiance to the football team. Went to my first game in April 1993 as an 10 year old.

When it comes to NFL, Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan. Raymond James Stadium was the first NFL and to this day other than Wembley if that counts NFL stadium I have been to. I first went to the stadium back in 2008, never made it inside that day but I had been to the near by Busch Gardens theme park and thought I would drive across just to see the stadium, I wasn't even a fan of the NFL back then it was more just to see it. Never sat inside until 2014 and hoping to do so again in November.

Bills and York City. FML. Nowt can be done now. You can change your political view, you can change your wife but you can't change your football teams.

Sure you can. I know a lot of people who have changed their soccer team. I grew up in one of those places with no local team to speak of (not in the professional divisions anyway) and where few people were local, I.e. their parents had moved to the area from all over the place not grown up there. So there were no local roots teams. It was also the era where football was starting to get more popular and commercialised and Man Utd were winning everything. Result - most people supported Man Utd even though it wasn't close to being a local team. As people have grown up a lot have switched their allegiances. A couple of local/localish teams have now improved a bit (one is in the Premier League, one is now up to League Two, one has moved to the area). Also, many people my age left to go elsewhere, as you kind of had to if you wanted to find a skilled better paid job. New cities, new allegiances. For whatever reason, Man Utd no longer fits the bill as an adult like it did when they were kids. And me too. I didn't support Man Utd as a child - one of the few - but I stopped supporting my team. Which was not a London club. I don't support anyone now but if I ever did resume following a team it is likely to be one of the local London clubs these days as I have no connection to the team I supported as a child nor to the area where I grew up. Life changes. And actually when you speak to Americans you will find that so many of them have changed their NFL team, or have 2nd and 3rd teams, or invert those preferences of first/second team over the years because they moved to another part of the country or whatever.

Vikings and Ipswich Town.

Glory days in the 60/70s.
Rubbish in the play offs.
Hate green and yellow....

New England Patriots and Edinburgh Rugby (rugby football). Both are my local team (being from Edinburgh and the Patriots being closer to the UK than any other team) that's about it for similarities. I support the Sale Sharks in English rugby, who until this season had a player named Tom Brady.

Don't watch round ball

Jets and Warriors. You shall now be known as bizzaro woolley_man.

Of course I don't really dislike Edinburgh, it's only a rivalry during the 1872 cup. For the benefit of Scottish rugby I want all Scottish sides to be competitive and at the top of the table.

If Glasgow reach the Pro 12 final I would support them over any team other than Edinburgh. There's a much more limited pool of opponents in the NFC where I'd be hoping for a Jets win in the Superbowl
