    I don't think anyone on here could possibly be labeled a bandwagon fan. We are still fans of the team... even through all the garbage we've put up with in recent years. Don't worry though... We'll have some good years sooner or later and everyone will jump on the bandwagon just like in 2008.

    And as many know by now I am for the Seahawks when the Titans aren't playing. You could possibly consider me a bandwagon Seahawks fan, but I feel like ever since I watched them beat the Saints in the playoffs a few years ago (the Lynch Beastmode run) I have liked them. Then when they took Wilson and I saw how he played in the preseason and early in the 2012 season I really became a bigger fan of them. I love the way they play. They don't really have any noticeable flaws. I freaking love that defense and run game they have. That is vintage football.

    I honestly don't see why you wouldn't pull for the Seahawks as a Titans fan. They're further away from us than any team. We only play them once every four years. They have also never won a Super Bowl.

    You could even say my "Seahawks fanhood" dates back to middle school when I began playing FF and had Shaun Alexander on my team... and in high school when they were the victim of horrible officiating in the Super Bowl against the Stoolers.

    I definitely am rooting for the Seahawks. But people like R Sherman are the kind of people that make me glad to be a hockey fan. Loud mouths. I hope Peyton carves him up, yet still loses the game for the Broncos.

    Never really understood the hate for "fake fans" or "bandwagon fans".

    Who cares if they have been a Seahawks fan for 48 hours? I mean, last time I checked, the organization doesn't send out checks to the fans after a SB win.

    I like football too much to do that. Always been a Titans' fan. I couldn't change that even if I wanted to. But I watch maybe like 5 NBA games a year outside the playoffs. So this year, the team I keep up with the most is the Warriors. I like Stephen Curry and they are fun to watch. Next year it might be a different team. Who cares?

    Am I a bandwagon fan if I really admire the style of football that Seattle plays? Lol

    As far as my own opinion on liking more than one team. I am clearly a HUGE Titans fan. And I can see logic in liking a team from the NFC as they only play the Titans every 4 seasons. And one game every 4 seasons isnt going to cause ANY problem the Titans until maybe the Super Bowl itself. I dont have another team itself. BUT I am a fan of PLAYERS. Almost all of them play in the NFC, and when I look at the list, these players are the ELITE of the league that I am sure many would say they enjoy watching.

    I am a HUGE fan of Drew Brees, Larry Fitzgerald, Peyton Manning, Adrian Peterson, Calvin "Megatron" Johnson, and Aaron Rodgers.

    I HATE all teams that are a rivals of the Titans or have caused the Titans to lose in the past. The teams I ALWAYS want to lose are Steelers, Ravens, Patriots, Texans, Colts, Jags, Chargers, and Rams. I can't even say I like any players on any of those teams besides maybe Arian Foster only because he went to UT where I went to school.

    I find that being a fan with this kind of logic makes WAY more sense than truly saying you like TWO teams. I know friends that say that have two teams both in the same conference, and they rank them when they happen to play each other. I guess thats a way to go, but doesnt feel the same way.

    Start following a team when they win the Super Bowl all the way up until the next Super Bowl.

    Never unhappy since your team will always win the Super Bowl.
