View Full Version : if the eagles offered you "x" amount of dollars to switch teams and root for them, would you?

Bored. somehow this thought formed from another thread(toadsofsteel thanks pal). Could you pull the opposite of what NFL players do when going for the money and saying goodbye to loyalties?

do you guys have a breaking point on an amount of money to root for philly and hate the giants?

that is a tough tough question...lol like a million dollars I guess. i honestly think it would have to be hundreds of thousands of dollars, tax free cash, for me to even entertain it...

and spare me any down talking, i'm bored and thought this could be a fun topic.

I can't say we just root for the Giants, I think we do so because we have a GENUINE love for the team. I haven't been watching football long, but as soon as I did, I always felt this bit of happiness when I saw the Giants uniform, our players, our coaches, our stadium, everything.

I would switch over for anything, because ultimately I don't think any amount could ultimately change my love for the Giants, the Giants themselves would have to spite me personally in some way for me to ever lose my loyalty towards them. I don't think an outside source could achieve that.

Interesting topic.

lets just say there was some sort of technology where it could make you remember everything, but just look back on it and feel anger lol...like you couldnt hold a positive thought about the giants in any way...hypothetical of course and i dont know if that even reflects what happens when players sign with new teams.

they often still have homes and stuff in the original towns and still hold good feelings for it.
but for the sake of this point, is there an amount that could switch you to the dark side ha...and if u want to expand on the idea in whatever way go for it

Football has become such a big part of my life that it'd hurt to root for a loser, **** franchise like Philly. To root for Philly, would be my equivalent to giving up football, and that'd take a lot for me to budge, and a price really doesn't come to mind. It'd have to be an outstanding amount, really.

But I guess the sooner the better. The more years I add to my football count, the harder it'd be, so like fine wine, my price would increase with time.

No amount of money, even in the Billions....could make me Genuinely like another team, much less a team like the eagles.

I'm not saying I wouldn't take the money if the offer came up, but it would be impossible for me to follow through with the promise and have a legitimate love for another team the same way I do for the Giants.....that's simply impossible.

If I got a lifetime of free premium seat tickets, free jerseys/apparel, free NFL Sunday ticket/ other variant, I'd go over to the dark side in a heartbeat because my main priority is watching some good football and they play good football. I'm not going to lie and make some rah rah stuff.

However, if the Eagles were substituted for a team like the Jets.... then I'd have to rethink this entire scenario.

As much as I hate to say something like this, even though it would never happen.....if Eli was on the Eagles, I'd want JPP to sack the #### out of him and force a fumble and send him home packing with a loss.

As much as I love Eli or any single Giants player, the team always comes first.

Btw I know that you're joking (or atleast I hope you are)

never had a beef with you before so forgive me if I come across like a A-hole or something.

I can't imagine rooting agianst the Giants. Ever.

seriously no soap box speech or nothing but, I have lived in another major city now for close to 23 years now and I am the oddball in all my spheres of life.

Work, Church, Neighborhood etc.

I am that guy that's wearing NY this, NY that; Giants, Yankees and Knicks in the city of Bears, Cubs/Chisox and Bulls.

Even if money was offered I couldn't do Benedict Arnold. I put up with a lot of "it-talking" as is.

It sucks being solo for dolo out here but I don't know any other way.

I
have 3 sons and if any of them played for the Red Sox, Eagles, Cowboys,
Skins etc It would be hard to swallow but my love for my sons
out-weighs anything else.

I'd only buy their jersey for example
but nothing else. Of course I'd appear to be a sell-out until I

it woudl be a lot easier to do ifI were paid on a per game basis for every Eagles win. If it was a lump sum, it'd be practically impossible for me. I'd say 5k-10k per win minimum for me to switch.</P>


But then again, that switch would be temporary - until I stopped getting paid.</P>

As fans we go through the equivalent of free agency when our team is down and other teams have success. That's where the bandwagon jumpers come in, they just follow whoever is successful or popular and switch allegiances with no thought. Or they hedge their bets and claim they are Green Bay/SF/Dallas/New England/Pittsburgh fans all at the same time.

Not us, we're here through good and bad.

I'm in it for the character of this franchise -- see my sig. Whether they just won a championship or are in the middle of a 30 year drought. There are very few other teams I could root for, and they are the ones who share these traits and show character and integrity. The Eggholes would not make this list.

It would be impossible for me to ever cheer for any team but the Giants as I love this team as much as I love my grandmother. If I took money from the Eagles to cheer for them to win it would be under FALSE PRETENSES. My heart is with Big Blue.

nice post. dont get me wrong, i am as die hard a fan as they come. i aint changing teams or would even do it i think, it was brought up in another thread how we wondered if fans would talk the talk and walk the walk and not take the money to go to another team (like players who sign with another team for more money). it was just a hypothetical, like if you were offered a million dollars to switch to rooting for the eagles, and having to hate the giants, could u do it?

i dunno, a mill is a lot of money. the fact that most of us wouldnt do it for anythingbc of the fond memories goes to show you how priceless the giants are to us in a lot of ways, it is a time in this hectic world to get with ur family and tune everything out, and watch some football for 4 hours...but a mill is a mill, lol

$500K thats the price for switching teams. Would you do it? I would do it for 5 years for $500K.

If we're talking about a lifetime commitment than that may be too difficult. I grew up on Giants football. It's a part of me it's who I am. The money won't make it easier. You can yell rah rah Eagles until your lings burst, but on the inside you will still have a warm spot for the Giants- rooting for them silently.

It's like if you asked me become homosexual for 10 million dollars. I might wear a dress in public form that day on, but it will be a mountainous task for me to actually change my sexual preference for women.

I think the better question would be how much it'd take to block you from ANY access to football. Because let's say for the sake of the thread you actually could be..."hypnotized" (let's say) to the point where you couldn't hold a positive thought about the Giants, it'd only feel natural to root for the Eagles. It wouldn't be any effort on your part, and in addition to recieving money you'd subsequently be entrenched into the Eagle fan mindset.

But consciously, losing all access to football -- to me, at least -- would be absolutely devastating. Always aware that there is a sport that captivated you at a point, and that you sold away for X amount of dollars. The sport still exists, captivating millions of diehards, such as you were, but that you can't ever hear of, see of, know of etc. Complete detachment.

I don't know if there is a number I could put on that.

Oh sure, that one is actually easy. It would also be easy to accept money to root for a whole bunch of teams... Packers, Steelers, Patriots, Panthers, Bears, Broncos, 49ers... hell even the Cowboys I could accept money to root for (though it would have to be at least 7 figures on that one). But rooting for the Eagles is tantamount to selling my soul to the Devil. I cannot do it for all the money in the world.

Simply put, no.

The only way I'd ever change allegiance from the giants is if the owners move the team to another place far away (like LA), rename them, and disassociate themselves, think what Art Modell did with Cleveland in 96.

And if that happened, I'd probably become a patriots fan, bills fan, or jets fan, no way I'd ever pull for philly.

I have a home a full time job and have raised 4 boys...I have never had to really choose...If something(very rare )does conflict I just tivo and I keep my self from situations where I might hear the score before I watch the game.Btw 3 of my 4 boys would never miss a game either.I have made it work since the 70s

Yeah right, some of y'all are lying y'all *****es off. I love The Giants just like the next man does but money makes the world go round and creates lavish vacations with the best liquor and beautiful women. I'm too much of a realistic person to play pretend. I might not root for the Eagles but somebody can offer me a few mil this season to go do a job where I'll miss the whole next 2 seasons and they'll have a deal.

LOL you're a "realist" but you're entertaining this idiotic notion that someone would pay millions of dollars for you to root for a different team in the first place?

That only happens if you're one of these guys

I'm a truck driver and sometimes the weather and holidays conflict with our schedule.

If the gave me "X" amount of dollars, X being the price it takes to completely banktrupt that organization out of existence. I would consider it because I would then need a new team since mine was defunct. Then I would choose the Giants.

Answering this, yes... yes I would. But does that I mean I would successfully be able to do it? Probably not

But if I get money up front, ill take it. If I can secure myself and my entire family for life and generations to follow, I can't honestly say I wouldn't do it. If it were that I get money after having to prove my fandom and devotion to the eagles, I'd probably fail because im too anti-philly
