..from a convo I was having on Facebook.

I don't think there's anything the Dolphins could do (within reason, I suppose...certainly not within the realm of football) that would make me pick another NFL team.

Back when Vick was reinstated into the league, I understood that he did his time and deserved to be able to play, but I just couldn't root for the guy on a personal level.  Had he made the roster and been the starter, I think I just wouldn't have watched football for a couple of years until he wasn't starting anymore. 

How about you?  Could you switch teams?

I could never switch teams, but I agree with you about Vick.  I might have had to take a break from football if he played here.

If a family member or close personal friend played for a team.   And while Pats are still #1, Seahawks are a solid number two because of a particular one handed linebacker. 

But those unlike your Vick comment are positive reasons to support another team as opposed to a negitive reason to leave. 

If Kraft was to punish a player for kneeling, I would find another team or maybe just give up on football altogether.

Not that I can think of...Being a Non local fan,never lived in Miami,or Florida for that matter,location isn't an issue.

I feel the biggest thing would push me away would be radical Uniform/logo change. IE Hot pink uniforms,trimmed in Lime green and orange.I'd still route for the Dolphins,or whatever the the logo/uniforms possibly change on the team,probably not follow them near as much.

The hard thing would be Like the Browns into the Ravens,then Browns getting a new team...I'm not sure how I'd handle that type of move if that happened to the Dolphins...

If a family member or close friend was signed by an NFL team, then I would cheer for that team...but I'll never stop cheering for the 49ers.

Letís assume that said team was in the NFCW.  You rooting for your family or niners those two games?  You canít have two number one teams. IIRC once every four years you root against the Dolphins.

 Relocation especially if they rebranded would cause me to switch.

Relocation is the main thing for me.

I doubt I would still root for the San Diego Dolphins, and I damned sure wouldn't root for the San Diego Sharks.

 There were times where I thought of giving up watching football entirely after suffering through the Dominic/Hickey era.  But I just can't see myself wearing another team's colors

If there were no Pro football in Miami tomorrow I might.... MIGHT.... become a Giants fan.  But it's a stretch

We should ask D4L what it was like switching to the Patriots

I've tried a few times with no such luck. I'm a fan of Tampa and Jacksonville and although they are more convenient for me to root for ... I just can't seem to switch allegiances. It's kind of like my marriage. I've got too much invested over the years to quit on them.
