    Fisher's attempt at humor could backfire - NFL - Yahoo! Sports

    one of the best articles ive read in a while....this guy is pretty good

    it talks a bit about the pats, mentions them really

    but the highlight was fisher, and ray lewis

    ive said it b4, lewis is done with....apparently this guy can see it too, and sees the specifics of why...

    Reasonable article. I've absolutely zero issue with what Fisher did. The world has become too precious. Sooks.

    Re: Fisher’s attempt at humor could backfire

    I don't think it was ever an issue of hurting grown men's feelings.

    What Fisher did was downright disloyal. Even if he had retired for 5 years and pulled this stunt I'd be livid. I was really surprised to see him don a Manning jersey during the season. Charity event or not, this is inexcusable.

    I'm so glad we have BB - all the media criticism about being "boring" is truly appreciated when other coaches are causing these disruptions.

    Re: Fisher’s attempt at humor could backfire

    i dont think i really care what fisher wore....

    but then again, i guess if BB donned like a plummer jersey after the postseason loss, i would be upset, although i would defenetely know that BB was messing round

    then again, the pats havnt had any one team recently completely destory them over and over again within the division, so no jersey can have the same impact on us that a manning jersey can have on titans fans

    Re: Fisher’s attempt at humor could backfire

    Remember when TB wore a Yankees hat in NY???? There was a whole lotta p*ssed off sox fans. That wasnt anywhere near as bad as what Fisher just did. The talk radio shows down here were taking calls all day from ticked off Titan fans. The Colts are the enemy, and he shows up with that jersey on, and then makes the remark that he made. wow. Jersey might be one thing, but what he said was flat out wrong. Many of the fans down here were already screaming for his head (which i disagreed with), and now this? If BB ever said that, i'd throw my kool-aid at him.

    Imagine how the season ticket holders feel? All that money wasted on a 0-6 team, and the head coach puts on a rivals jersey, and says he wanted to feel like a winner????? wtf??:eek:

    I didn't mind the jersey stunt, but that "I wanted to feel like a winner" comment was a little uncalled for. Way to kick your team while they're down. Still, I think that's more a matter of crappy coaching than "OMG he's a terrible disloyal jerk we gotta fire him!" He should be fired after this season anyways, so it could very well be a moot point.

    You're joking right? It's a jersey and he made a joke for a good cause.

    **** me the world is precious.

    Keith Bullock and numerous others agree with me, my friend.

    This is not a funny joke - it's wrong

    Please provide me with a detailed analysis on how this makes the world a worse place to live in.

    After a 59-0 stomping, either he deserves to get fired or the team needs to be insulted... let the owner decide.

    From my end, the last game was a sign that the Pats are a sure lock to win the SB.

    Re: Fisher’s attempt at humor could backfire

    Aus, c'mon. Its not making the world a worse place, nor is it that big a deal in comparison to world problems. However, put yourself in the shoes of the Titan season ticket holders.

    Lets pretend this happened to us for a moment.
    We just came off a 13-3 season, and our expectations are high. Without warning, suddenly we're 0-6. We spent our hard earned money on tickets, and merchandise, and our team is stinking up the joint. THEN, BB wears a Sanchez jersey (pretend the jets are 6-0.lol.) to a charity, and says, "I just wanted to feel like a winner".....Are you seriously saying that wouldnt p*ss you off????? :confused: Maybe it wouldnt, but I promise you, most every Pats fan would go nuts.

    I personally hate Titan fans, but im starting to feel bad for them.

    Honestly nashvillepatsfan, it wouldn't bother me in the slightest because I understand where it sits contextually in the greater scheme of things... even taking into account my utter dislike of the Jets organization.

    Like he said, it might not bother you, but it would piss of most Pats fans. At least most Pats fans in the US.

    I really hope you're not suggesting something just because I don't support the Patriots from America.

    Re: Fisher’s attempt at humor could backfire

    After the historic drubbing his team took last Sunday? 0-6 on the season? If BB did this I would be, "WTF?". Fortunately BB wouldn't do this. When BB's team is 0-6 and takes a 59-0 drubbing, the guy would be inhumanly focused on what went wrong.

    Off season I can see this being relatively a non issue. Again, with where Tenn is at right now? Unbelievable......

    Re: Fisher’s attempt at humor could backfire

    i'm ok with the jersey and would be ok if bb did something like that at a charity event...i'm not as ok with the comment but don't think it's the end of the world...

    as for the "in the US" comment...not cool...it's like saying a pats fan in new york city (like me) or a pats fan in a city like, well, um, Pittsburgh, is less than a full fan...

    Of course. My kids get beatings if they don't cheer with passion.

    You're all forgetting when BB tore off his hoodie after the week two loss to reveal a Bart Scott jersey. Still cracks me up.
