    So, I'm sandwiched between two clubs with racist elements. Excellent.

    Besides, I've quite recently explained my take on supporting football teams. In fact:

    Supporting a football team happens when you're way too young for you to be judged on it later, I think. I didn't make a conscious effort to support my local team, I was just lucky that my dad coerced me into it as I was growing up and then I came to love Arsenal. If my dad had been wearing Manchester United shirts around the house and buying me United shirts and scarves and taking me to United games, then I would have become a United fan, despite being born in London and it wouldn't have been down to any conscious effort I made. Could then someone turn to me and call me a glory hunter? Like **** they could! By the time you're old enough to make a conscious decision on which football team to support, and whether it's 'right' or 'wrong' to support your local team, the chances are you will already have been integrated into a different team and be in love with them anyway, so you can't be judged on that.

    And it's not like the very old days where most people supported their local teams and it was commonplace. The globalisation and popularisation of football, as well as the invention of TV and all other media, mean that it's easier to fall into a team's following that isn't from your local area.

    Much more important, for me, is how you support the team once you're conscious & mature enough to properly do so.

    So yeah, where you live in relation to which team you support is of 0% relevance for me. I realise this will make me much less of a fan in the eyes of some people, but it's a view based on rationality & empathy rather than some sanctimonious, misguided pride.
    Worth a read, if I may say so myself

    West Brom championship? That's offensive! (yeah I'm a baggies fan)
    I guess it's given me a reason as to why there are so many wolves fans around my area and not as many baggies.

    Edit: Ascient, that's a very good explanation on why people support certain teams that may not seem the obvious choice of team.

    That website is rubbish. It doesn't have Widnes Vikings on the list of Rugby League teams. Nearest to my house is St Helens apparently. I'd rather burn in hell. Next you'll be telling me to support Wire.

    The picture in your sig, how photoshopped/computer edited is it?
    What do you mean?

    The picture itself? Or the signature image (i.e. with the shadow etc.)?
