"We", when we win. "They", if they lose. Just kidding, I think I say "They" the most of time,and yes I yell at the TV sometimes
1. They  2. Yes  
#8 | 1402 days ago

I agree with Stoney...it's THEY....until they start paying me to be a team consultant...then it will be WE.  As to number 2, Nellie, "Do you yell at your TV when THEY are playing"....I might have been offended if I was in the WE category for question number 1...just saying...
1. They  2. Yes

(Edited by ms_hippie_queen)

i say "we" because the other team is definitely "they."

and because of this:


yes, i yell at the tv. with the astros it's usually "holy rollerblading christ why would you pitch to him?" and "why the hell are you having berkman lead off bunting??" or just general open weeping. baseball is my sport, but football will be the sport that makes me lose my voice. i get so damn passionate about the games. i've crawled on the floor and put my face right up to the screen, sprinkling it with spit and breath fog whil i curse kubiak, kubiak's hair, kubiak's steering wheel cover, kubiak's left nostril, kubiak's right nostril, kubiak's 11th grade teacher, kubiak's favorite meal, kubiak's favorite sofa in his house, kubiak's first dog, kubiak's grandfather, kubiak's stupid f*ckin polo shirt that covers his idiot coach's body that's probably covered in glitter and my little pony tattoos based on his general knowlege and even gut instincts about the g*dd*mn game he's being paid 6000x my salary to coordinate!! g*dd*mnit!!

1. We  2. Yes

 It's weird, I yell more at the TV when I'm watching hockey...I noticed that the other day. Once in a great while I'll yell at the football game (or rather, my team), but I get a lot more emotional watching hockey and I yell for almost everything - near goals, great saves by the other goalie (I try to hex him), bad calls, missed calls, stupid defense, you name it. 
1. other  2. Yes  
#11 | 1402 days ago

(Edited by kteacher)
2. I yell and do jedi mind tricks on the Kings when they are losing.......it's exhausting, but only when I'm watching on tv. When I am at the games, I do more of this---------------------"ohhhhhhhhhhhh,  GOD, ugh, OUCH, sniper....ha ha." I save the yelling and coaching from the seats to the know it alls trying to impress whoever they are with.

I confess Stoney, I do say "we" when the Texans are concerned.  Please throw six bud lights or heinikens.   Start  throwing Sunday, say...noonish?
I used to scream at the TV too, but it's starting to look like the coaching staff isn't listening...

I see what you're trying to do there.. well played sir.. and even though I don't say we, I definitely say teams are "mine" (unless they are the Broncos and keep playing like sh*t.. then I don't acknowledge them until they pull their heads out)
1. They  2. Yes  
#14 | 1402 days ago

I usually say MY team... especially when I am speaking about MY Steelers... i'll yell at the screen during any good game...

 I don't mind people saying "we" if I think they are a true fan, but when they head to the mall during the Patriots game and then send me a text that reads "Hey, tell me how WE are doing"....Oh, hells no.
#17 | 1402 days ago

I refer to my Team as Them/They Suck

#25 | 1402 days ago

I say WE when it is hockey and the Flames, they for NASCAR and football - not sure why I'm sorta weird that way.  Also, I yell at the TV constantly during a NASCAR race and during a hockey game, but tend to "mumble and groan" more during football.  Again, I have no idea why.
1. We  2. Yes  
#26 | 1402 days ago

i am definitely a "they" guy...just b/c i'm a fan of a team, it doesn't make me a part of it...i also use "the (team name)" whenever i refer to a team...i agree w/ stoney, and CRINGE when i see someone use "we"...the only way someone should use "we" is if they're a player, coach/manager, or otherwise employed by a team

i do yell at the TV while watching games, but i've tempered that as i've gotten into my 40's

 Feeling froggy?  Go on and leap.  

And people who yell at the tv are dumb and deserve to stub their toes regularly.  Take that.

(I don't yell, I shake my fists and grumble.)

It's mostly they but if i cheer them to victory then it can be we.
Yes, i am a cheerleader so i am always telling them what to do or what they should have done.  Grrrrrrrrr

 I am a "We" guy that is trying to reform himself into a "they" guy, being that no matter what I do. I will not cause my teams to win or lose. Plus even if they were to win a championship, they aren't going to give me anything for them winning.

Also I definitely scream, yell, and cuss at the TV during games. I have even been known to throw things at the TV.

Today I am definitely a WE person - the Stampeders, the Redskins and Kevin Harvick are all on the tube today, and I am with every single one of them!

Well, "we" got our clocks cleaned by the Packers today, and I was referring to the team in a "we" context.  As a dedicated fan, I guess I'm just damned to that association......

Not a Browns fan... Say it isn't so!!!!  I am more of a Polamalu fan myself, or even Ward, or Mendenhall... When it comes to the Steelers...

#36 | 1392 days ago

I really do not say we . Used to before I realized. I am a huge fan. But do not have a place on team.

As far as yelling at T.V. Yep but they pretend like they can;t hear me.

Well, I admit it, I can be 'more' than a bit slow at times as I forgot to answer the second part  of the poll and finally realized it was one of the questions after wondering why everyone was talking about yelling at the TV during games....LOL!

Personally, I don't yell at the television, but I do have a Vikings doll that is attached by Velcro at all of the major joints; there have been games in which I have to solicit the help of my kids to find one or more arms and legs--and a few times I had to 'fish' the head of the doll from behind the entertainment center!
