Least = Eagles/FortyNiners/Jets & Tony Romo ... it's a tossup.

Most = Pats/Giants/Steelers,(*edit) & Packers ... always a class act and in the playoffs.

Re: What other NFL franchise do you have the most "RESPECT" for? Which one do you have the least respect for?

Packers. (and Im surprised to see others agreeing with this.)
I stole much of this knowledge from an SI article, called, Why Everyone Should Root for the Packers. But its true stuff, and I support it.

1. The team truly belongs to the community. They're owned by some American Legion Hall, and fans have shares in the team. So the team can never MOVE. The Plague of Moving, started by Al Davis, almost destroyed
the NFL for me. I still root against moving teams.

2. Even more "team belongs to the community:" Smallest NFL City. Just like
us, they're supposed to be too small, too poor, etc. What you have is a
totally invested fan base, just like us. And just like us, they come from
all over the state, and neighboring states, not just their metro area.
They're the only team who has fans who can touch us in the Krazy
Department. Just like us, the little guys, we buy more of our
teams stuff than the people in big cities.

3. Their fans. I dont hear them crying about "amenities." I see them
sitting in the cold on benches and celebrating about it. I like their
cheeseheads too. Come on, thats funny stuff.

4. They have this tradition, where kids loan their bicycles to players after
each practice during Training Camp. And the kid carries the players
helmet & shoulder pads. Can we please have something like this in
our town? Except we could let grown men carry stuff for Saints
Players, and get on the field, starting with me.

5. Lambeau. This should be #1, actually. Lambeau is Lambeau because it
doesnt clutter up your football experience with amenities & other crap. I dont think they even have a big screen. You dont see a swimming pool, or
a special yuppified cabana bar, or whatever. This is why Packer Fans still
have attention spans. Why cant they understand that I, the Real Fan, who
makes the stadium what it is, give a crap less about luxury accomodations. Im 100% more interested in looking at any ground where Ray Nitchzke used to
play. Football sells football. So does history.

6. Tradition. The Packers still wear the same uniforms they wore in the 60s. And they didnt "black out." They look very American, I think. The Packers still look like football, and not Cirque du Soleil. ...or an arena league team.

7. Bart Starr, Lynn Dickey, Don Majkowski (spelling???), Brett Favre, (yes, I like Brett Favre.) Aaron Rogers.

Least Respected: Raiders. Al Davis did more to destroy fans loyalty than any owner, even Art Modell. He started the "moving" epidemic. He invented the PSL--- greatest sports scam ever. Their fans celebrate their own grotesqueness, probably, because after paying the PSL, they cant afford normal clothes. Malt Liquor & Thunderbird, the only thing they can afford, causes unreasonable behavior. Davis was next to Jerry Jones in the meddling department.

... excellent read! Didn't want to give an NFC North opponent that has dominated my Lions for so many years any props ... thanks for the 'internet skin-bracer slap' and bringing me back, man. ... now that I think about it, my earliest recollections of the NFL are the Green Bay/Detroit game and a lot of my early NFL opinion was heavily influenced by Vince Lombardi & the Pack ... heck, Chester Marcol was once my favorite placekicker, .

Don't hate to say it...
He also didn't do crap after the Super Bowl.

Porter = Soft Cell (one hit wonder) "Tainted Love"

You saw last night why we let Tracy Porter walk. The ONLY reason people are lamenting his loss is because we have injuries.

Re: What other NFL franchise do you have the most "RESPECT" for? Which one do you have the least respect for?

Most respect- Giants...because they gave a lot to get Eli and I am admittedly a big Manning homer...especially the Mannings that went to Ole Miss. They have a very respectable HC, GM, and ownership as well. It is not hard to respect that organization.

Least respect- San Diego...I have never liked the way they do things and Philip Rivers may be talented but he comes off like a jerk to me.

I haven't given this a lot of thought so I reserve the right to change the "least" if I think of some team I respect (with that being the key word) less. If you had said "hated", then I might have a different answer.

Most - Steelers for tradition and ownership.
Pats for Bellicheck helping Sean Payton be who he is today.


Least - Bears. We have the same number of Superbowls. Why do you think you're so great?
Falcons and Panthers. Your team, your fans and the fact that I'll have to listen to you cry about "cheating" for decades...

Actually thank Parcells for making BOTH Payton & Bellicheck who they are today.

Most Respect- Pats, Packers (even though Rodgers comes off as a douche to me but he's a great QB LOL), & Steelers...

Least Respect- Falcons, Panthers, Vikings....I've never seen 3 teams hate on us so much in my life. Everything they do is to keep up with us...Panthers winning that game last sunday was their Superbowl. Falcons wish they were us. We live in their heads...they did a "Rickey Williams trade" just to keep up with our O. LOL. Vikings are just losers. Would rather berate us over "cheating" and see EVERYONE ELSE beat us because they know they'll never get as close as they did that night in 2009. Would rather see us fail than to actually focus on being good themselves.......typical loser mentality.
