The NFL, The Raiders And The Questionable Emotional Payout of Being a Fan

Released Monday, 27th September 2021
Good episode? Give it some love!
Ever been angry doing a pro football game? Ever yelled at the TV while watching your favorite team due to a bad call? A stupid penalty? 

Why do we care about our team so damn much?

Since the age of 6, when Gene Upshaw gave him a gift of a team autographed Raiders helmet, Dr. John has been an avid Raiders fan.

But what exactly is he loyal to? A player? A team? A logo? A city? Memories?

And what exactly is the emotional payout of being a fan?

How angry (or bummed out) do you get when your team loses?

How happy do you get when they win?

Are those two emotions equal in how long they last and in their intensity? (Note: The short answer is no)

Discover how to be a better husband and father by learning to have the losses hurt less. 

Because when you look at sports in terms of the emotional payout, everything changes…for the better.
