    Grew up a Cowboys fan because that was who was on tv every Sunday here in midTennessee. Been a Oiler/Titan ever since the move. Wife and kids have become Titan fans all on their own, but thats all the get to watch and hear in my house.

    Just hope and pray that your kids are healthy and successful. It's all entertainment. You might as well be saying you hope your kid likes Star Wars because you did or I hope my child shops at Target and not Walmart. NFL, Media or stores..... They all just want your money.

    dbc, there is a difference between sports and a tv show or movie.

    My family is probably one of the most messed up football fan families you'll ever know.

    Let me try to break this down.

    Dad - Bucs
    Mom - Dolphins
    Me - Titans
    Sister 1 - Raiders
    Sister 2 - Broncos
    Sister 3 - Bills
    Uncle 1 - Steelers
    Uncle 2 - Dolphins
    Uncle 3 - Bengals
    Uncle 4 - Broncos
    Uncle 5 - Raiders
    Aunt 1 - Cowboys
    Aunt 2 - Cowboys
    Aunt 3 - Raiders

    My grandparents on my dad's side were Steelers fans.
    My grandparents on my mom's side were Cowboys fans.

    Moms side of the family is from Texas and my dads side is from Pennsylvania where I live now. So I have NO IDEA how everyone has such mixed teams.

    Explaining myself though and going on topic since I am my dads son and I guess it applies... I was really young and a big Ohio State fan. My first football game I ever went to was Michigan @ Ohio State and I was completely captivated by the sounds, stadium, the excitement, and most of all the players on the field. Especially number 27 who you guys all know. E.G was right away my favorite player and I was just getting into football at the time so I didn't have an NFL team. Everyone wanted me to be a Steelers fan. They even went out of their way to buy me a Kordell Stewart jersey and forced me to wear it but I knew wherever Eddie ended up getting drafted was where I'd put all my loyalty into and follow them for the rest of my life and that team was the Oilers.

    As for my kids, if I ever have any, I won't pressure them into anything. They can make a decision just like me. I for one think it's wrong to force a team upon a child. Just like forcing a religion on them. They should grow up to make their own decisions. I was NOT going to allow my family to force me to like the Steelers and I am sooooo glad I didn't fall into it. Even with all of the Superbowl's they have won since that day I wouldn't change being a Titans fan for the world. Even though it's one of the most heart breaking things at times.

    My parents never really cared about football while I was growing up, but my mom became a Titans fan around '06 or so. It is great to watch games and talk football with her.

    If I ever have kids, I think it would be awesome to have an extra bond with your kids.

    I don't have kids, but if I did they would be Titans fans. The only way they wouldn't be is if they just didn't like sports. If they liked sports and football but weren't a Titans fan I'm pretty sure I'd divorce them. I doubt any judge in Middle Tennessee would rule against me. It would be less embarassing for me for them to turn out gay than not be a Titans fan (not that there's anything wrong with that).
