I grew up in Wilson, NC and couldn't have cared less about any NFL teams. I watched the playoffs and all, but I really just cared about college football. As soon as I heard we were getting a team, I decided to care. I was 14 then and have been a fan ever since!
The whole "people can have their opinion argument" is worthless when you can't have your opinion about their opinion.
That's not the point. I don't think anyone said you can't have an opinion about their opinion. I even said that I disagree with their rankings. I just don't get why people get so worked up over it. I understand getting heated over the way the team plays or the way the front office makes decisions. That stuff directly affects the team and how far they can go. Someone thinking our QB isn't as good as five other guys his age is not a big deal.
