I think I lean towards it. Not the supernatural intervention aspect, but a team hasn’t won in awhile, they choke one away and ‘here we go again enters into player’s heads once a bad break has been had.

Yes. The Leafs haven't won since 1967.  There has to be some sort of curse or jinx involved here.

The 49ers seem to be jinxed as far as injuries go. They seem to lead the league or be near the top of the list of most injured players every season. They fired their entire strength and conditioning staff after last season, but it won't help if they truly are jinxed.

No, but they are fun to discuss and joke about, so I kind of hate to see them broken.

Nope



I think a losing streak against a certain opponent or in a certain venue could affect the psyche of a team in performance by placing unwarranted stress on them, but that is not a jinx in my opinion.

Agreed.  The Boston one was a good one with Buckner’s error ramping it up.

I don't believe in jinx but I do believe like someone said earlier a losing streak against a certain team/coach or failure to win at a particular event can get in the players' heads and make they believe jinx exists.

I believe that whatever team has the most Christians who point up to the sky thanking Jesus after taking a base on balls or hit a foul shot with nine minutes left in the second quarter will consistently win. A jinx would be Satanic which is why the Yankees haven't won a World Series ever.
