I was a LA Rams fan long before Georgia Frontierre murdered the real owner of the Rams. She proceeded to tank that team forcing a move to St. Louis. I was at the first game in Busch Stadium and watched my Rams win a SB from half a country away. I shed tears of joy when Kroenke moved them home to my back yard.
I am a Pistons fan, not a fan of Det or Michigan. If the Pistons could field a more successful team in a larger market with better fan support I will be rooting regardless. If your affinity to a team has to do the City or venue you are going it wrong in my opinion.
sorry to break it to you but most fans are fans of teams where they grew up or whomever their families grew up liking. not caring about a team leaving a city just because you don't care about it is shortsighted. you think people in Seattle should have been thunder fans? ridiculous take.
