I didnt change being a fan of the broncos just cause the niners are close to me.
no it doesn't. 75% of people do that when a new team comes into town.
that's what happens when you get expansion or relocated franchises.
let Alabama get a professional baseball team and see how many Atlanta Braves fan disappear and start rooting for the Bama team.

it's a fairly natural reaction. i don't care for any local teams. all my favs or northern or midwest. Broncos,Avs,Yankees,Bulls,Man U,Michigan Wolverines & etc.
the only teams i like in the same state are the Broncos and Avs.

if a pro football team came to Alabama i would still be a Broncos fan, but most of the state is turning from Jacksonville,Miami,Atlanta,Tennessee,Tampa Bay & etc close teams and into the new Bama pro team's fan. of course Bama won't get a pro team due to severe issues with gambling and folks hating to pay for stadiums.
