    That's an easy one. :) It's simply the way the poll was constructed. You have an option to make votes public or not.

    Depending on the question, sometimes more "honest" responses will come if polls are anonymous.

    Oh. :thumb: Cool. I thought there might be something wrong with my computer.

    I can see that. Because I really hesitated to vote Basketball Junkie when I saw the 80% Detroiter/Homers!:eek: :tape: :laugh:

    I love all Detroit teams. I watch them win or lose. I did get a little discouraged when Ilitch bought the Tigers and refused to put money into them in the 90's so I did not watch as much as I did in the past. The last couple of years though my interest picked back up with the addition of Pudge and now with a legit manager in Leyland.

    I do have favorite players on other teams that I watch like with football Tom Brady with New England or Chad Johnson with the Bengals. As far as basketball goes I have always been an Iverson fan. The little man has heart of steel. other than that I am pretty much a homer.

    Detroit homer, but I think my interest fluxuates depending on if I like the players. Not necessarily if they're winning, but more of the personality of the team, and the style they play. For instance I really loved the 00-04 Pistons when there were more scrappy and underdogs, but I found myself caring less in 04-06 despite more wins.
