    there is also a poster named homerdindon who should be given a nod just for his title
    Homerish in what sense NJ guys or something else?

    No once Grips likes someone he sticks with them. Probably one of the best was Herbert dec Askren. Although if it was 2 years later I may have agreed with you.

    I'm like that too, although I think of it as being "emotionally attached" as opposed to "homerism"

    ok....good definition....if it has to relate to geographic or team, I'm not that homerish. However, i'll think a guy is the man forever for seeing him do some awesome shit one time.

    Little birdie also brought a great example for me: Dart Shark is an ODU homer big time! He tries to keep it stuffed in the closet, but he bleeds blue.
    I wish I could kick Matt Dragon in the balls. In his Dragonballz.

    They had a rematch at the Hargobind tournament challenge match (74 vs 84 kg winner.) Herbert won the first period, then lost by injury default. I wasn't there myself, but I heard rumors that the default was pre-planned because Herbert could not accept the prize money, but Askren could.

    I nominate Zapp for the "homer" poll.

    Dart is also an east coast homer. Look at his fantasy team, is there one wrestler outside of the East time zone?

    KR and Herk are my two...If i had to vote for one...Don't know what I'd do.
    You gotta be kidding me. I'll pick against Iowa or an Iowa wrestler if I think they will probably lose. They just rarely lose. For instance. I have picked Iowa to lose at 157 a number of times this year.

    The greatness of the Hawkeyes makes it hard to pick against them. It's not homerism it's reality.

    Now, had I picked a guy like, oh I don't know, ummmm, say, BEN BERHOW, to finish the season in 8th place and I was a gopher fan that would have been a total homer pick.

    I don't think I'm particularly homerish, but ok. I definitely favor one team in my rooting, but when making picks I'm pretty realistic.
