Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Depends.

Peyton Manning, class act.
Ray Allen, class act.
Steve Nash, class act.

It also depends both on the person and whether or not they announce it through a majestically trivial waste of time press conference.

"I'm going to take my talents to South Beach."

These 9 words made one man the biggest a-hole on the planet. I will never forget these 9 words in my life. What an incredibly pretentious thing to say--my talents. Jerk-off.

P.S. woot, "Your favorite player on my favorite team leaves?"

Team sports are pointless and boring to watch unless there's a personal investment (friend/relative/child of a friend or relative plays). I'd rather participate...and even at that, I prefer non-competitive individual sports that allow for multiple participants/socialization. Yes, kayaking and hiking are sports.

The answers don't seem to match up with the question. The answers refer to *my* favorite player on *my* favorite team; whereas the question refers to *my* favorite player on *your* favorite team.

Yeah, guys...this question is harder to interpret than a double negative by like a factor of ten.

I do the classic Fantasy football. Hope that he does well even against my own team, as long as my team still wins.

If they are my favorite player and they are leaving your favorite team, they just might be moving to my favorite team, in that case I'm all for it.

The Chiefs were already terrible, and TG left! I cried for weeks.

I can't say for sure, but if Dirk left the Mavs, I would probably stop watching...

Unless you live in S. Florida when that was the greatest thing to say by the best player since Jordan. Sux to be you!!
How can you blame the guy? Have you ever been to Cleveland? Nuff said!

What do up expect from questions about spectator "sports"? It's as incongruous as a tech toy named after a killing machine. Oh, they did that too. :-P

Please do not increment my Quality Posts count. 69 is a good place to be. ;-)

Well, when Jimmy left the debate team, I was heartbroken and angry at first, but I realized his overuse of the slippery-slope fallacy was a major hindrance, so now I just wish him luck.

I was a big Angels fan before they won the World Series. After that all my favorite players were traded. I stopped following them after that.

Yes, the vapid, vain, celebrity-obsessed failures at life that reside there finally have something good happen to them. Oh wait, they won the championship in 2006.

OKC traded him. He wasn't a free agent. Stupid move by OKC. They also should have sent him to the Eastern Conference. I seriously cannot understand why they would trade away the most talented sixth man since Manu Ginobili.

You might have to tell us your favorite team first, so that we may decide if we even have a favorite player on your favorite team.

If ESPN fantasy football analysts can make a reference to 18th century German Sturm und drang theatre, I think I can expect Sport! Woot polling questions to make sense.

Cry about the loss of a somewhat good player (I live in Minnesota where we have no good sports players) and then keep watching in the futile hopes that a team like the Lynx come along sometime and wins a championship. I also hate the player who left, except Moss.

I must say I enjoyed all the photoshop jobs making fun of Albert Puhols watching TV while my Cardinals MADE the playoffs. He left purely for the money.

I remember when Farve left Green Bay. All of Wisconsin felt personally betrayed. It never occurred to them that he felt no intrinsic loyalty to Wisconsin. He's not from here. We are not his people. The Packers were just his employer.

This makes as much sense as getting mad at a co-worker because they took a better paying job.
