And for every die hard Giants or Patriots fan, there are a slew of other disappointed fans who didn’t get to see their team go all the way to the Super Bowl this year. Attitudes remains split as to who they’ll support in Super Bowl XLVI in this section of NFL fans.
New Jersey native Colin Power is throwing his support behind the Giants for victory in the Super Bowl, despite otherwise being a Jets fan.
“I'm a Jets fan, but even I can get behind the Giants on this one. Better a New York team than the Pats!” said Power.
Not all Jets fans are as willing to jump ship and swing their support for Big Blue. Co Kerry native John O’Shea, a Jets fan since he moved to New York in 1982, says that he’d rather not see either team win.
“The Patriots and the Giants are pretty much the sworn enemies of our Jets; I could care less who wins.”
