I added the transitional sentence, "Likewise, fictional movie and TV baseball teams earn similar fan praise with endearing characters and a compelling approach to the game." to the poll introduction to better help poll takers understand the scope is limited to fictional teams only. That will bring the number of mentions to five in the poll.

Which fictional movie or television American football team* earns your support by being the type of team you would root for?

* football team must feature both a fictional team name and a fictional roster that never played together on the same team.

Eh, I'm not a fan of football movies. They just don't capture the essence of the game.

I can see that, often very little football or unrealistic or unlikely scenarios. I'm not sure if a movie can live up to thrill or suspense of the "real" thing. The genre is okay and has some decent entries when taken as football as a backdrop for the story just like any other.

It is true that there could be good ones, but I haven't seen them. I hated Remember the Titans, and Air Bud Golden Receiver is rather mediocre. I can't think of any others. I know I'm missing some, but those come to mind at the moment.
