    Do you root for Serie A clubs outside of Serie A games?

    I randomly thought of this question last night:

    When a Serie A team is playing a team in the Champions League from say, La Liga, do you want the Serie A team to win to strengthen the name brand of our football? On the other side, do you root against the Serie A teams due to rivalries or dislike for the other clubs? Or maybe you just don't care.

    An example is, when Fiorentina was playing Bayern in the 1st round of the Champions League knockout stage, did you want them to do well for Serie A as a whole? Or did you want them to lose because you can't stand Riccardo Montolivo? I chose this example because Fiorentina isn't a hated team like Roma or Milan amongst us.

    I support all other serie a team except gobbi,bbilan and roma merda. Used to want roma to win as well but after the way they played against us with the diving and the crap they say about us I hate them too much to support them in any game.
    Forza Inter per sempre!!!!

    Yes I can admit I want Sampdoria to do well against Werder Bremen. This does remind me of how there is "Conference Pride" here in America known as College (American) Football. There are a bunch of conferences (which is similar to how we have EPL, La Liga, Serie A etc.) and they all have their own share of conference pride when playing other conferences.

    I just dislike bbilan, Jube, and Roma.

    That thread pretty much shows what has been shown above, no one wants Milan, Juve, or (usually) Roma to win anything.

    The more interesting debate is over the rest of the teams. Sampdoria-Werder is a great example. Maybe we could get a poll going. I always root for the Italian team in that situation.

    I was curious, how does the BBilan joke come from? I don't get how it's an insult title for evil AC Milan. I don't speak Italian so can someone help me on that? I'm used to typing stuff like that for the American sports opponents I hate.

    I understand the college football part. Though I'm a Michigan fan and will never root for Ohio St in a bowl game. Ever.

    I'm still lost why we type BBilan to insult the cross-town rivals.

    Well, Ibra is n

    Yess, rivalry is good but remember if Italian clubs perform well in Europe it is better for Serie A, because there will be more coverage therefore more money and better players being attracted to the league and also the Eupeon spots.
