Please note DePaul is no longer my team. I tossed them on the woodpile a long time ago.
See, this is perhaps why Americans don't "get" football. It's easier to change sex than change your team. You won't come across ANYone at a match who said they used to support Arsenal but changed to Chelsea cos they liked the colours better or something. And you can't up and move a team across the country - it's only ever happened once and there was such an outcry about it the rules were changed to stop it happening again; and the team formed to replace the original is now (in league position terms) back to where they were when they were moved. Supporter culture in the States is very different to the rest of the world.
That's another ridiculous generality. Most Americans live and die by their teams even in the bad times too. And I bet some brits abandon their teams from time to time.
This thread was great before AA ruined it.
