    For example, say you were a charlotte hornets fan, from charlotte, and then the hornets move to new Orleans. Are you still a hornets fan, or are you now a Charlotte bobcats fan? Now the hornets are back in charlotte, what do the new orleans fans do? Do they like the pelicans now or do they still like the hornets?

    God I was so happy when I moved from Quebec to Colorado.

    i am from detroit but moved from there in 1984. moved back for one year in 1989. they are still my favorite teams though i still like the places i lived as secondary teams.

    lived in houston: loved the rockets when i moved there. they had olajuwon, sampson, and many other fun players. i no longer like them though because i cant stand players like harden and now that they have carmelo, they are off my list completely.

    always liked the astros since i moved there. mike scott, biggio, clemens, etc. still like them and was really happy they won it last year.

    the texans came there while i lived there and i like them a good bit

    lived in charlotte: was there when they got the original hornets. gramama, mourning, etc. they were fun and kendall gill comes to train at floyd mayweathers gym from time to time. my fandom didnt follow them to new orleans however, and i didnt rekindle anything with the bobcats or the new hornets.

    i was there when they got the panthers. never really got into them too much though

    lived in nashville: i worked security for both the titans (got to work the superbowl) and predators. they are probably my second favorite teams still behind the detroit teams.

    live in las vegas: love the golden knights, and although they are still slightly behind the predators, i expect them to pass them in the next year or two.

    i always hated the raiders, but we will see how that goes when they get here.

    When they took the Colts from us, I was young but I wasn't going to become a Redcans fan like most people. I rooted for the Giants when LT started playing for them. Thankfully we got the Ravens. I also moved around a lot but came back to Baltimore. I took a warming to the teams where I lived, but could never really root for them as if they were my team.

    In Wisconsin, we won't lose the Packers but we did lose the Braves and never got another Professional baseball team. Instead, we got the Seattle Pilots.
