With the Giants facing off against the Jets on Sunday, Saquon Barkley finds himself in a little family predicament.
Barkley's father, Alibay Barkley, grew up a diehard Jets fan, and that fandom found it's way to his son as well. Barkley has mentioned in the past that he grew up a Curtis Martin and Jets fan, but he found his way to the Giants last season.

On Sunday, though, Alibay Barkley won't be wearing his son's jersey. Instead, he'll be wearing a Joe Namath jersey to the rivalry game.
But that isn't the only school of thought. Look at Greg Anthony last night at his son, Cole Anthony's, game for UNC. The elder Anthony was a Duke grad, and we all know how deep that rivalry is. Still, Greg Anthony was donning all UNC gear.
So that got us at SNY thinking: How would if your son or daughter was playing your favorite team? Who would you root for?
On the one hand, you have undying loyalty to your team. But, on the other, that's your flesh and blood.
So vote in our poll below. We're really curious...
